No.2 Sis called and asked me to bring my jewelry making tools and findings to her house on Sunday. She has a piece of jewelry that needs a little modification. No problem, I believe the jewelry making supplies are on the bottom layer of the deeply buried dining room table. I spent an hour or so on Saturday digging through the mess.

I didn’t take a picture right before tidying up, because I remembered I had this “before” shot. Now that I look at it though, I realize the piles had gotten much deeper by the time I started clearing the table.

Improving, but more work to do.

I can’t say that the dining room is now clean, but I managed to sort everything into piles and boxes. I was able to find everything I needed to make a lovely little tool kit. I feel like an old-time doctor, going on a house call with my black medical bag.

Have tools, will travel.

And I found this. Ewww! If I can remove the lime buildup, I’ll donate it. If not, it goes in the garbage.

Lime-away?

I also did weekend maintenance in the Queen bedroom: 10 minutes to put away laundry and pick up.

I filled 2 bags of recycling. That brings my count to 228.

Stay tuned…
