Those of you who have read Modern Day Redneck for a while now know that I eat, breath and sleep projects. When the weather is bad I sit by the window like a kid in a candy store just waiting for the first ray of sunshine and then I'm out the door.
The down side with multitasking between projects and all the time allocated to them, is the mess I make. There is nothing half way, it's all out and when I am done it looks like a bomb went off.
Next Thursday I will have anywhere between 16 and 25 people here for Thanksgiving and the last thing I want is an all around mess. I take pride in what I have and feel embarrassed when things are out of place (OCD) when people come over. Take this last weekend for instance, I had a customer come by kinda unannounced to look at some goats and I spent most of the time explaining my mess even though I did not need too.
So to remedy all that extra stress I have started Operation Cleanup for this week into next weekend.
Here are a few pics of what I am talking about.
Scrap wood pile from the Solar Bath House.
The back yard is just killing me every time I look at it. Goose feathers everywhere. This weekend I plan to spend some quality time with the leaf rake and Mr. Manuel Labor.
Maybe by the time everyone gets here next Thursday I will be able sit outside with ease, relax and have a proper Thanksgiving day without stressing over the little things.
