Well, this is my first week dropping back to part-time at work. That means today was my first Tuesday at home! I made myself quite a to-do list to help me stay on task and not kill too many brain cells on the computer all day. I actually crossed off every single thing on my list!!
Jobs worth mentioning… I got all of my tomato seeds planted. I had worked on some on Sunday & Monday but finished up today. Roma, Big Month, Amish Paste, and Rutgers. All together there are over 250 of them if I’m counting right. I’m starting them almost a month late but considering the weather I’m not too concerned!
I slowly started to work on organizing the basement too. My two goals for that today were 1) get all the storage containers put up on the shelves I built last year and 2)build a shelf for the extra sink and countertop to set on. We’ve had this sink top leaning against the wall down there for years. Eventually we’ll have a canning kitchen down there so we’ve been holding on to it. I built a shelf to hold the top that will also hold 4 storage totes. It has room for a bucket under the drain too. Someday we’ll hook up the water supply but it would be expensive to drain it so a 5 gallon bucket will suffice. I took pics of the finished shelf so I can add those later.
For boring jobs I got ALL the laundry done. I had to use the dryer all day which I hated to do. It is so damp in the basement nothing hanging up will dry and it was raining off and on all day. I cranked up the dehumidifier down there and that helped some. It is so nice to be caught up on the laundry! I just won’t think about the electric bill! 😉
Anyway, it was a successful day. I’m beat!
