Today was busy. Just in case we have heavy snow I needed to go grocery shopping. I had very little time over the weekend so I had to catch up. We went to the grocery store and the library and then home.
After lunch we DH desk back to its proper place in the basement. It is very heavy so we had to empty out as much as we could and remove the drawers. I was able to vacuum beneath it and in the area with the desk I have to vacuum the walls because I had carpeted them too.
It sound proofs the area and it is so very easy to clean and to use as a notice board. It was a stroke of genius when I realized the room sizes were wasteful with the carpet we bought so I asked the man if he could put carpet on the walls.
He jumped at the opportunity and he was kind enough to charge us very little. Since then several people have asked him to do it that way.
DH was not really on board but since I am the one in the basement most of the time he gave no objection. Now his desk is there and he has thumb tacks all over the place and he loves it.
I was able to vacuum all the bed room carpets today. They came up very well and I was really pleased I will not need to clean them till fall. That way the summer soils will go when the carpet cleaners come in.
I have given up on it, I am too old for that plus the shampoo has to be non allergenic so they can do it and we will hopefully be able to get out for the weekend.
I bought 8 pounds of sweet potatoes today. I do a lot with those and I was getting low on them in the freezer. I cooked them in the microwave and now it is all mashed ready to go in to the fridge over-night. I use them for sweeteners in chocolate flavored muffins with lots of dried fruit DH loves them. I use the puree to add to soups and stews.
Now it is bed time. I did work out with my resistance bands and I used the gazelle. After the vacuuming and moving the desk I decided I was staying in-side it was a cold day so I did some gazelle.
I found a way to get to my SKY DRIVE or whatever it is. Then I was able to get to my e-mail accounts again so I dragged an icon on to the task bar and so far it is working.
It worries me because I do not want to use Face book and I keep seeing a log-in page for me. I wish it could be removed but they leave it there and if I click on it I am back on face book.
Now the house is looking good.
Our daffodils have buds and I am wondering if they will survive the snow, they usually do. I am off to bed HUGS.
