Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House

The crockpot is now emptied of delicious jellied stock and bits (from four recent chicken/pork batches). Clearish stock went to the freezer, and sludgy bits and ztock were added to chix liver bits and jellied stock for a batch of creamed soup to make during the week. I now have the big bag of frozen veg for soups.

Batch of rice cooking in crockpot.

The four glass china cabinet shelves survived the vibration of the dishwasher this morning; they'll get a final vinegar polish later tonight, and then be installed. Then in succeeding days I can start unpacking the decor it will hold.

So grateful to have a plateau of normality! I'm still roller-coastering, but these plateaus are great.

I may get the camper popped up and re-leveled on its blocks tmrw w lawn crew member Ronnie, weather permitting. I hope they didn't trash the interior too bad-- it had just gotten an expensive supercleaning last summer, and we've done our best to maintain it in resale condition. However this access will also allow me to pull the king mattress out to supplement the worn one on our bed here in time for vacation, and cleaner Brittain will help me set that up and make up the bed. The honeymoon comforter is at the dry cleaners, so soon our BR will be completely de-Hordeated. A friend has offered to come smudge the room with sweetgrass.
