Saturday did not bring the gift that I wanted. I wanted a clean house, inside, that is. Instead, I got the outside clean. That would include sweeping up after the man who mowed the grass and cleaning out under the lawn mower so that it can be stored for the winter. The flower beds are clean of leaves and as ready as they are going to be for the winter.
The gift to myself would be if I can really get cars in the garage this winter. I tried last year. I was out on New Year's Eve cleaning the garage out. I threw lots of things away and even took some things to the scrap metal place, but it never got beyond that. The vehicles never did make it in the garage last winter. It was a mild day, close to 60 degrees. This year, today was the day to put up the things that we do not need for the winter, bike, balls, etc. It was also time to throw away some things that have not been used and are not useful anymore. Finally, it was time to put those things that need to go to Goodwill in the truck.
We are almost there. Most of the garage floor is clear. Some of the things need to be hung up and we should be good to go. Pray that the rest can be done; with the vehicles getting older, it would be a lot easier if they could be in the garage at night.
