As much as I dislike housework sometimes I still get on a cleaning binge. Right now it is windows, patio doors, tile floors and summer outdoor "stuff".
I mentioned that I did clean one set of patio doors, the BBQ and some patio chairs. We fired up the BBQ on Saturday for chicken shish-kebabs and enjoyed them thoroughly. We didn't use it at all last summer and I am determined that we will get our money out of it this and next summer before we leave it behind in our move.
I finished the 4th tile floor this morning and am starting on the kitchen windows and door that collect so much tree pollen. So far I have hosed them down well and soon I will be outside on a ladder washing.
I'm also going to spend some time admiring our new retaining walls and stairs that we can't even see from the house LOL. They cost a small fortune but half the amount of the first bid and are a necessary maintenance project that we couldn't do ourselves. The crew worked incredibly hard and a side benefit it that the tire, bedframe, steel drum and other assorted trash that was semi-buried in the hillside by previous owners of this house are all gone to the dump. That alone makes me very happy as does the fact that I won't worry so much about breaking an ankle when I go down into the woods to clean and spray kudzu. One more pre house sale task checked off.
At the end of May we will be 24 months out from when Hubby can retire and we are starting to work on what we think needs to be done. We also had the crew remove some diseased bushes and we will be planting different ones ourselves to save money. Hopefully they won't look too pitifully small by the time we sell.
Have a great day!
