So... the high hopes for an "after" picture of the garage cleaning project fell through this week. I did spend a couple evenings of quality time last week basically moving things around. You know how the mess seems to get bigger before you get a handle on it... I guess you'll have to settle for a "during" picture this week.
My wife, Lynette, and I talk a lot about the first "domino" that each project has. The first domino is the one thing that leads to the next level of completion. For example, I have to move the stereo that is under the work bench in the garage. Now, of course, I can't just grab it and go... well not in my a garage anyway... so, in order to get to it I have to move the boxes of canning jars, but the canning jars need to go to the basement. The spot for the jars is currently occupied by several stacks of books that need to be put in boxes. The boxes I need to use have recycling in them. So... by way of the "garage domino effect", if I need to get the stereo out, the first thing I have to do is take the recycling in... makes sense, right?
We did get a bit more canning done this week... beans mostly. Nice to have them on the shelves. We hope everyone's gardening adventures have been good this summer!
Thanks for reading the issue of Tidbits of the Lake Area, Lynette and I appreciate it very much! Watch out for those school kids, and we'll see you next issue!!
