Oh, so many things to report.
Day 2 of “Unclutter in 30 Days” is clean the shower including getting rid of the extras and empties that fall every time the curtain is pulled back.
The above picture is really as good as it gets until we get the new bathrooms outfitted and renovate this one. The bathroom tub is clean and decluttered.
Day 3: Makeup Drawer/Bag
This area is really going to be a challenge since I use a lot of this stuff every day and the cabinet under the sink is already full of things.
On a more pleasant note, I spoke to Chef John yesterday and he’s having a Soup Swap on November 8th and I’m invited.
Tuesday night I went to a “Boost Your Brain” lecture given by Dr. Mahid Fotuhi, noted brain sprecialist with an MD from Harvard and a PhD from Johns Hopkins. These are some of the items I need to incorporate into my life to maintain a healthy brain:
- Get physical exercise.
- Eat a Mediterranean diet and take DHA
- Task your memory
- Be mindful – meditate
- Get enough sleep
When I arrived home from the “Brain” lecture I noticed the giant bees that had been buzzing around an oak tree in the front yard, congregating on the porch.
Turns out they are actually European hornets who do their foraging at night and are attracted to light.
So I guess I shouldn’t leave my porch lights on until they die off this winter.
Finally I tried to dispose of the wet feathers from the feather fiasco in our washing machine.
I couldn’t maneuver them from the box to a plastic bag so I just dumped them in the driveway and hope they’ll dry out and float away. After all feathers are floating all over the inside of the house.
In the mean time the linens I used to gather the feathers also need to dry out before I put them back in the laundry.
I don’t want another clogged filter.
That, my friends, is the clamor and glamour of my life.
What’s your clamor? Glamour?
