I woke up before 6 and was going to take a walk but while I was putting out the garbage I cleaned out the garage, instead. SORT OF.
There is still lots of STUFF left but on Thursdays the garbage men take random objects, so some of them are gone. Two 4x8 warped Celotex boards that used to be a design wall in my house. I decided that if I ever need another design wall chez moi, I will buy more. Various pieces of wood. Two old telephones, Marty's radar detector - which I will never use and is so old it is obsolete by now; the manual to his Lexus, sold when he stopped driving. The guy who bought it for his daughter is the Lexus service manager - and anyway, she took it to Florida. She has a problem, she can ask him! STUFF.
I won't go into what is left, but Ms. Closet would be proud of me. My objective is to be able to put the car into the garage once the weather gets cold. Marty was the one who always put his car into the garage and I had to spend hours cleaning feet of snow off of mine, which sat in the driveway of our one-car garage abode. But first, I have to get the remote garage door opening gizmo to work. Another story.
This is so neat that I can hardly believe it. These are supermarket bags inside of supermarket bags inside of...
I use them to recycle the newspapers, junk mail, and small pieces of cardboard. Whole Foods is expensive but they have the worst bags: the handles break. I think they are doing that to encourage you to bring your own. Nevertheless, I have quite a few of these.
By 7:am I had cleaned and vacuumed not only the garage, but the car. I must be insane. Then I came in and after breakfast, made gazpacho, which I had for lunch. Then I went to the studio for a couple of hours and puttered. Sewed, sorted, threw stuff at the wall and took it down. See this fabric with the stars on it? Love it. Got it from Usha last month.
It looks entirely different when you cut it up.
I am going to bed. Now. I promise.
