    If DH works on the gazebo roof today, I will help with that.
    I have little stuff to do today: make jug of iced tea, hard boil eggs for the week, was blueberries, make salads. Haven't decided yet what else to tackle - maybe finish housework.
    I didn't do iced tea or housework or help with gazebo. (DH accomplished a lot on the gazebo without my help). I did do the eggs, blueberries and salads. I also listed 4 items on eBay, and worked on the stripping kitchen cupboard project. The cupboard project is unsatisfying because, um, stripping furniture - need I say more? However, it is a "big rock," so I'm pleased to have given it some time and energy, even if I don't have much to show for it.
    I also rearranged the back porch dining area to help me visualize what we'll be doing with this space. I'm not so great at imagining without actually seeing. I do think it was a worthwhile exercise, and I decluttered a couple of items in the process!

    I tried another recipe and got caught up on cleaning. A nice bonus was DS spent 4 hours removing all his stuff cluttering the dining room table and rest of the downstairs.

    For this week:

    1. Work 5 days (I am out of vacation time)
    2. Follow up with DS to ensure he gets an electrician in now that the house is presentable
    3. Try the remaining 3 recipes I bought ingredients for

    So home from our long trip and was unpacking. I was hanging up clothes and realized that I had way to many hangers so filled a bag for the thrift store. Rosa, I stripped all the woodwork in a big old home when I was 27 plus the kitchen cabinets. It is hard work.

    Pretty late in the day - 2 pm - but hoping to get a few things done. This next week is going to be challenging because it's going to be hot and humid so I'll have to push myself to get stuff done.

    Today's list:
    2 loads of laundry
    some cooking
    a few paperwork tasks
    vacuum (stretch goal)
    20 mins of garage decluttering (very stretch goal)

    some easy wins:
    pick up after pets
    make bed after washing sheets
    unload dishwasher
    tidy kitchen after dinner

    Yesterday I got everything done except my stretch goals. Not surprising.

    Today's list:
    3 hours of paid work
    groceries
    some cooking (I really don't want to do this - why, oh why, didn't I get one of those rotiserrie chickens at the store?)
    vacuum
    pick up after pets
    nap
    mail out checks for pet licensing

    I got the yard waste toter to the street, put a cart full of donations in the car, heated up some brisket and root vegetables, and had coffee. I'll probably do some reading. And that's about it.

    I cleaned the kitchen and living room, bathed 2 dogs, did some laundry and graded some exams. I will also cook dinner for my kids tonight. I am still tired from my trip.
