Life these days is so much about caring for other people. But at the same time, I'm managing to continue to tackle projects. Yes, there are still projects on my list. This weekend I managed to clear out all the boxes of Christmas decorations from under the stairs, and throw away or give away everything except the few I still use. The nice thing is that now everything will fit on easiily-accessible shelves in the garage instead of under the dark, scary stairs where spiders and who-knows-what-else lurks.
And I took a few pictures of the autumn around my yard yesterday and today. Leaves are halfway finished falling. I'm not raking just yet. Wait a week or so until most are down. And then I'll probably phone Alberto anyway. Today, I'm taking a much-needed day off for some downtime with my little Frankie.
