Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Good luck keeping the clutter out of the new house, Dorothy. Once it's at the mill will you be able to donate it from there? Sell it?

The garden has been tilled and the beds will soon be shaped (beveled sides on raised beds and I'll put down cardboard covered by mulch for the paths between). A load of mulch picked up from the bunker where the city parks department places it for free use. It's 88o right now but supposed to dip to 39o overnight, so I'll wait until tomorrow to plant, keeping a cover over the plants I have ready to go in so far. Here in the creek bottom sometimes we get frost when no one else does. It would be a shame to lose all of my potted seedlings.

eBay listings did a little backslide this week, one item went missing in the mail system of an Eastern European mail system, probably pocketed and never to be seen again. Note to self: don't ship to those places. Another one messed up her eBay account by not updating her address and the parcel came back. She didn't have enough in PayPal to pay the paltry postage (again), so she opted for a refund. This house seems to be loaded with boombox radios and I've realized that the better brands still sell on eBay, so that's my next venture, finding the boxes to fit them.

This is the weekend I'll finally shampoo that carpet in the den, and get the furniture put back where it belongs. The table that goes on top of it is covered with various projects, some will be finished, and one stack of stuff is for Goodwill. And what I need to do is find a good place for the carpet cleaner and the vacuum to live when they're not in use, they seem to migrate to the front room, but that's not a great place. Maybe move some of the clutter beside my dryer and make a berth for them there.
