Here I am in the middle of another busy weekend! I have been pushing hard at the Spring Cleaning project, as the deadline looms in the ever shrinking distance. I am getting help around here this weekend, and it had been thoroughly appreciated. Currently, it is too hot to do much puttering, so I am taking a few minutes to stop and write before I go back to work.
I have also been eating ribs all weekend long. It is the annual Ribfest here this weekend, so I have sampled and eaten rib meals all weekend long. I am ready for my last rib supper of the event tonight. I have enjoyed the dinners, but it will be good to get back on plan tomorrow and start working on my healthy eating again.
I am planning to do some more work in the Master bedroom after I write this. If I can cool down. We are saving towards getting a heat pump installed here, and that will provide a more economical source for heating and air conditioning our home. I look forward to that very much, especially on days like today.
I slowed down a little this past week, but this weekend has been the start of the crunch to get the Spring Cleaning done before crossing the finish line. I am going to start in the bedroom while the sun is out. It will be hard to not just flop on the bed and nap until it cools down. I have a deadline, and I intend to keep it.
This means I will be working at this place constantly until I have finished. I am going to have to putter all week long. There is no Zumba for a few weeks, so my plan is to house clean instead, with music. This will keep me moving, and get my project worked on at the same time. It might not be the same intensity level, but moving any way at all has been my motto since I started Zumba. I will continue.
It is a lot to accomplish in the time I have left, but if I keep at it, it will get better and over time become a list of completed tasks rather than an overwhelming list of things to do.
I am going to end here for this week. It is so windy outside that I have experienced a couple of power brownouts while writing. I hope the power stays on so I can continue bouncing the house. It is much harder to stay motivated without music.
As the Spring Cleaning comes to an end, I am going to be changing the focus of these stories in July. I will still be writing about my weekend activities, and maintenance cleaning routines as I develop them. I am also going to start writing about the second half of this year’s project, writing my book. The gears are going to shift here soon, and there will be lots to write about as I start a new adventure!
