I watched a couple of movies yesterday while I worked on turning several large t-shirts into rolls of t-shirt yarn to use for mask ties or other things. There are two self-healing cutting boards on the table and with the new larger one this work goes quickly, I don't have to keep stopping and shifting my work to stay on top of the mat.

We're to the season of lots of fresh fruit available and I have to be careful how much I purchase at a time. Last night's dinner included guacamole since I bought a half-dozen avocados the other day (most of it is now frozen), and today I think it will be peaches with every meal. The difficulty in shopping for fruit in this year of COVID-19 is that if I pick up a peach to sniff it to see if it's ripe, I can't smell it through the mask, and the realization that once I've touched it I'm pretty much obligated to keep it. So buy only a few at a time and hope when they arrive home that they will perform as expected.

I'm still finding things around the house to repurpose now that the original function is moot. Boxes, baskets, tools, art supplies, interesting jars, emptied-out plastic storage bins, etc. It is gradually clearing out a bit and I'm still planning the big rearrangement. The linchpin in this operation is steam-cleaning the front room carpet so it's ready to receive the items I plan to move in there. And I need to move stuff off of that carpet before I clean it. In the end, those repurposed items will probably find themselves in that front room where my eBay stuff will be organized. It's the kind of plan that, since it doesn't involve people coming in to do work, has no fixed schedule.
