Not really sure what to put as a blog post title today, so I went as uncreative as I could. lol
All I really did today was try & clean up more of the terrible trash heap in the back yard, that was so kindly gifted me from the former owners. I thought, and that being the big key word, I only had a pool left back there next to the shed, only to find out we (my husband & I) couldn’t really move it much. But did find, after moving it around as much as we could, that it was hiding yet another tv! We had known there were two of them back there, and got rid of those during spring cleaning week the town was having. They weren’t charging to get rid of electronics (as long as you called ahead of time, we could put them by the side of the road to be taken by the city during the week of April 13th), and on the 18th, they had hazardous materials day @ the high school, where we could take paint cans, tires, etc. We took 4 tires from the yard then. So to find yet another tv, didn’t make me happy, as now we have to wait a year to get rid of it, or pay $25 to get rid of it sooner..
I did find some other trash amongst all that, so I bagged up what I could & put with the rest of our regular trash, but will be more then happy to have all this extra crap done & gone. Just don’t think I will ever understand why people don’t clean up their messes when they can. No reason to be keeping a personal dump in one’s back yard when there’s trash service weekly & at least around here, yearly hazardous materials week free of charge to get rid of such things. Especially when that is what one is paying property taxes for, and they weren’t even utilizing the very service they were paying for.. Don’t get it.
I was also able to finish up washing the windows, which were in the master bedroom. I washed the curtains & sheets in that room, and now I think I am officially done with the spring cleaning. I have a closet in the enclosed porch to go through, but that is where we stuck all the odd ball stuff in when we were moving in. So I’m not considering that spring cleaning, but finishing up the moving responsibilities.. I know, it’s two months later, as we moved in on Feb 25th, but since we’ve moved in, we’ve had plumbing issues (like having completely new plumbing installed), and organizing all the rest of the house. We are now coming down to finally finishing up the lose ends.
Positive note, I had a wonderful afternoon (the work happened in the am) with my husband. We didn’t go anywhere, but really had a nice time in our enclosed front porch, just talking, the two of us. Well, three if our darling pooch is included (which I happily do all the time).
Now off to listening to music and knitting on a sock. May read a bit from Gone with the Wind before bed.. :p
