Cleaning hasn't happened but I purchased a tablet, new walking shoes and clogs. I have been noticing that my feet hurt in my current shoes, and even tho my 2 pairs of clogs are old they are about 1 or 2 sizes smaller than my current feet, so it's good purchasing.

Well I did get the pintos going and that facilitated cleaning up the kitchen once I got them into the crock pot.

Got the pintos sorted into some freezable and eatable containers, completed my Safeway order and put the stock pot onto soak, and cleaned up the rest of the kitchen.

I got the recycling and trash down, and then picked up the mail. And right then the Safeway truck pulled up, amazing, I am usually last on the list.

Most of it put away, but I needed to reorder a few things (I only got 2 cans cat food, LOL), so I wanted to do that before I forgot. All the fridge and freezer stuff put away, so just a few things left.

Also, I couldn't get the parcel box open so now I have to go down tomorrow when the mailman is here.

LOL, oh it's ok, I get most of their food from Chewy, but usually get 4 cans of 2 foods to add to that. Plus we have a whole shelf of food, I just try to be ahead of the need.

The kitties probably have more food than I do, LOL. I just ordered them some more treats, hahahahaha.

Hahahaha, that is so funny, I was just telling the Safeway guy that my cats hear the truck before I do! I always know they are here because the all of a sudden the cats run to the other room.

http://www.flylady.net/c/fp.php?tzm=420

Just more of the same stuff today, I dumped the birdbath water, it had some sort of weird film on it, and refilled it. Neatened up the kitchen and got my new tablet charging.

Now I need to clear my email and maybe sweep the balcony and porch before the winds pick up again.

Not sure if too much will be done today, I ran the dishwasher last night, so will deal with that today, and I will be gathering things for the trash and recycle bin.

I have some boxes that can go since a new Chewy box has arrived. I sorted thru the mail, and did pay bills until the first of the month.

Did the grocery shopping today, was pretty low on meat. I had two whole chickens and a pack of sausage in the freezer and we've had sausage once this past week and chicken three times, so definitely needed to go. Costco was packed.

also doing laundry and cleaned up the kitchen. Not much else yet.

I have one of those IKEA multi cube units in my bedroom, and it has become a dumping ground for things I need, but have no real place to put. (Also it is VERY dusty.) Tonight I cleaned 2 cubes, tomorrow I will tackle the rest.

Where oh Where will I put the stuff now??

LOL Christy, I have a cart for mostly my beading supplies, Kota's clay, and paint. Another shelving unit for the rest of the crafty stuff. Problem was, lots of crafty stuff, some that we don't use all that often, but do use and dont want to get rid of.

But, I got tired of digging through drawers and shelves looking for something while trying to get around the stuff that isnt used all that often. So. I got a plastic bil, put in the rarely used crafty stuff and put it in the garage. Caleb came down the other day looking for some little trees for a class project, asked if i knew where they were. Yup, in the plastic bin in the garage. He asked which bin.

I have no clue, they all look alike! Took forever to find the right one. If you go the bin route, maybe label it, lol. Cuz, thats now on my list, labelling bins of books, decorations, etc.

Monday's Mission
http://www.flylady.net/c/fp.php?tzm=420

Just redid my list of things to work on for the week, not to much to do just the stuff I didn't do last week.

LOL, Wargod, I don't have a garage and I don't have too many bins but I too, learned the hard way to label the bins.

Christy!! Great job, is there a shelf in a closet where you could put stuff? Maybe get some small or large bins like Wargod mentioned?

I finally gave a bunch of stuff to goodwill and it freed up some space for me to store stuff. I got some really cute pull out square baskets that look nice but hide the stuff.

K, toilet clean even tho I just realized I forgot to get some more toilet cleaner when I ran out, will order some now from Walgreens, trying to think of anything else I can get from there, LOL.

Also vac'd the bathroom floor, cleaned the kitty scooper, and wiped down the tub.

Did some hand washing in the kitchen and neatened that up. Noticed I need to polish the island and wipe down the DR table, so that will be in the next trip.

Having some coffee now.

Ordered the toilet cleaner and got some new mascara....I kept wondering why my lashes wouldn't stay dark, I don't do makeup everyday but I like to have on mascara, so the other day it dawned on me, perhaps this mascara is not Waterproof, hahahahaha.

I was correct, so I got some waterproof mascara too.

Also picked up a nice "Holiday" top at QVC, and a fleece hoodie. I don't really have a lighter coat to wear when it gets cool, and this one will do.

I need to stop shopping, LOL, this happens every year, I go shopping for my sister and end up with a bunch of stuff for myself! Real Estate taxes are due soon, I need to save my dollars for that.

Think I am done for the day! I meant to vacuum for 15 minutes but I didn't hear the timer go off, LOL.

I vac'd the hallway and rug, then down the kitchen hall to the dining room, vac'd the kitty condo, slider track and the slider screen. WOW, I can't believe how much better the slider looks, while I was vac'ing you could see the streaks where it had been vac'd versus not, it was amazingly dusty.

Then I vac'd the floor in the living room and the fireplace cover.

Still need to do a deep vac on the living room and office but that will be another day.

Got the entire unit done. I remembered that I bought a set of drawers for one of the cubes that I never used. Put those together, tossed the stuff that was creating the clutter in the drawer and dusted the rest.

This freed up the space in front of the unit and so I swept and mopped and the room looks bigger. Next time I have to tackle the top of the dresser.
