Today we dropped off an old tube TV from basement. And one Hughe Rear projection TVs like the 60 or 65 inch ones from Out shed
I need to get back on track, we have company coming for Thanksgiving, they need a place to sleep.
Went through most of the kitchen drawers and sorted / threw out the usual clutter that gathers in there. Got rid of a bunch of old phone charger cords. Also put some glassware and a rice cooker in the goodwill box. Tonight I'm going to tackle the mass of lidless plastic food storage in the cabinets and see if I can find a better way to organize it.
Sell the Lego’s, do you live in the Midwest, I would buy them. When did Legos get so expensive.Yesterday from DS room took out the TV stand that was not being used and put a desk in there instead.
I am going to paint that TV stand and change the door knobs and place it in the basement and from the basement out will come old tube tv and stand.
From the basement I have 3 full bags of books to give family/coworkers. 8 boards games to go out.
4 - 15 gallons containers of Dinosaurs big ten. swords, dress up clothes with shields and more and lots of cars, trucks other toys to give to great nephew. A small tub of paint supplies to give up.
I found a few things for American girl dolls including a horse saddle to give to DD girl that she bbsat.
I took down a train table, I couldn’t find a home for that so I slid it under the couch. All the Legos that were on it are now in 20 gallon tubs down in the basement.
I have 3- 15 gallons tubes for trash.
Nothing is under the ping pong table now, prior it was completed full under there.
I found a shower liner in the paint supplies today DH traded it and a new curtain out.
I sent DD at 4pm all the stuff I pulled out at 10pm I sent new video of it all cleaned up. It rain here hard all day. So it was a great day to do it.
Yeah we gave up on trying to mulch our leaves. It was so wet from the snow and then the rain we would have just made a large mess in the yard. Spring clean up is not going to be fun!Winter has arrived in the Midwest. Everyone was raving about ?Fall and it probably lasted a week. Bundled up today, since it is the frozen tundra outside and cut down the tall grasses and will Take to the township for recycling, along with 3 daisy plants that needed to be trimmed off. Thank goodness the small amount of rain came and melted the 3 inches of snow, so my husband could mulch the leaves down. We still have a lot of leaves on the trees and we are suppose to get another 4 inches of snow tomorrow.

yup, we are joking in eastern washington that this year we had 'fell' in place of fall. we've had snow a few times since september it's hasn't hung around long but enough to weight down the trees and pull all the leaves off. a couple of rounds of heavy winds and our property was covered in all the pine needles we would normally see accumulation over months and months. on one of the rare decent days dh took the lawn tractor out and ran it over all the graveled areas to mulch/blow so we don't end up with a slip and slide driveway.Winter has arrived in the Midwest.
