...in which our plucky heroine, with help, brings greater order to the environs:
In the time that Blue Cedar House was down here, from Friday night to Sunday afternoon, a LOT of Useful Work happened here at Acorn Cottage: shed roof repaired, front door latch repaired, lower framework for salad table squirrel protection made (I still need to build the uppers) Bicycle brake cable replaced and new kickstand installed. Yard weeded, weed whacked, front yard raked (and neighbor yard raked). Huge linen closet entirely emptied and sorted/decluttered, and reorganised and the linen closet doors, which have not closed properly the entire time of my residence here, have been planed down and reset so they can be shut. Plus we discussed the next SCA clothing projects I'll be making for them, and set up plans for the rest-of-the-year weekend get together work parties.
My ongoing intention is to clear out various areas of dysfunction, clean, declutter, and organise the spaces to add peace and functionality to life here at Acorn Cottage. This is a slow process, but each little bit that is transformed, each space that becomes a "home" for particular objects instead of a clutterbug-trap makes it easier to put things in places they can be found again when needed for use. This being my goal for the entire homeplace, and my Blue Cedar House pals have been of great assistance in these endeavors...
