    Reversed the five pound gain, but the holidays are not over yet.

    That’s great Yppej! Somehow despite eating more than usual the past week I lost 2 pounds and have no clue how.

    • Annual file culling/shredding (will work with Mom to have her do the shredding since this makes her feel happy and productive)
    • List several items on eBay
    • Complete cellar cleanout
    • Complete decluttering of Mom's second floor
    • Build storage shelf unit (this was on my list before, then I decided not to do it, now I have decided to proceed)
    • Continue room-by-room review and cull

    Light is broken again after I brushed against it while cleaning the mirror.

    I am told the BOH member will not be reappointed.

    Started on the files.

    Continuing with the files.

    If they don't cancel them because the houses sold already I plan to hit three open houses and one library this weekend.

    Back from vacation and the normal routine. 2022 decided to give a not so nice parting gift, so I haven't been in the mood to do much

    Work on clearing the spare bed
    Start organizing the books
    4 boxes
    Set up no screen days for Jan, Feb, and Mar
    sort scraps for quilt
    Work on tshirt quilt
    Stash busting


    Pulled out the scrap bag and I'll sort while watching the news. Separating them by size, haven't thought too much about the quilt blocks themselves. Only rule is the top must come from the stash only. Think I bought backing fabric, have to check.

    Book organizing and stash busting will be ongoing 2023 projects. Hoping to finish the storage unit decluttering this year

    Hana, is stash busting to use up all your quilt scraps?

    Yppej, yes and also the small odds and ends of yarn. Many crafters use the term the describe using what you have and not buying more. Going on a big once in a lifetime vacation this year and I decided to spend $0 on crafting supplies to pay for it/money for souvenirs and gifts. I'll sew other things, quilts are a great way to use the small odds and ends.

    I may yet stay on budget for January. My car has 48,000 miles on it and at the 45,000 mile checkup Dealership 1 said I need the drive belt changed soon. Went to Dealership 2 today and they said it doesn't need to be done until 90,000 miles.

    Went to two open houses today and have two planned for tomorrow. Everything in my price range is junk. House #1 had water all over the basement, which is so small you can't stand upright. House #2 looked to from the late 1800's and nothing done to it since except some new floors. The boiler was leaking. It is my new low cost hobby though I still go to City meetings.

    I completed the file culling yesterday and continue to make good progress on the cellar project. I now have all kinds of records related to expenditures and activities on behalf of my mother, so it's good that keeping records organized is one of my strong suits. I have a pile of stuff for her to shred when I go over there this weekend.
