Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
I'll probably start a new thread with the new year because this one has run pretty long, but it can handle September through December before we're to that point.

It's a Saturday of a three-day weekend here in the US, so it pretty much feels just like that. I woke early, and facing Saturday, have a usual set of things to do, but all of a sudden I have more time for those things. I have no retirement strategy, though I have things I want to start now. This morning is when I would usually change the sheets, but I pulled up the mattress cover also; might as well start some fall cleaning even though it's still about 100o out there every day this week. The dogs were fed and since the state of the patio has bugged me for a while I pulled out a stiff straw broom to un-felt the concrete - I call it that because dog hair laid down over time on top of grass and grit thrown off by the line trimmer becomes a durable mat that must be knocked loose and peeled off.

I have a couple of job nibbles and others more I plan to pursue. I also need to volunteer at my old library in order to work on organizing the photo collection I donated, and we need to figure out the best way to do it. One-stop ID might involve a process of identifying and photocopying to write on the paper who and what are in the image, creating a paper record, but also scanning it so it is available for use more easily. Those images will only be a resource if there is information attached to them.

And I'm Stilly River Sage again.
