Eliminating wasted space.

About 3 hours later:


I have a few more redundancies to eliminate but the second shelf stack allowed me to clean out all the cleaning supplies from under the sink in the kitchen, so now i don't have to worry about the little one getting into them.

This is what hubby has done:
it was an awful mess here before, i had my books in totes and cardboard boxes- the boxes were up on shelves, but with so much flooding the boxes lost their stiffness and loosened. Though very few of my books actually got wet, the slow collapse of the boxes left things in a mess.

He's also applied DryLoc to the walls to see if we can keep the dampness down when we do have those soaking rains that have been happening much more frequently than i can remember.
 He is under the impression that painting up to the granite foundation isn't a good idea.  I don't have a clue myself.

All those black totes contain books.  My books.  I think the green ones have assorted aquarium odds and ends...

But he's got it all organized and  most of the walls painted. He's doing more painting right now...i think.

And for today's edition of "Watching Grass Grow":

i need to go all the way to that back corner and retrieve the black grill cover, it blew there a few days ago when we had all that wind. I don't usually get to go out that far even win her Princessness is sleeping.  She has a sensitive proximity alarm and i can barely get past the driveway before she wakes up.  Hopefully i'll remember to sneak out and get it or it will spend all winter out there in a crumbled, muddy heap.

Great job! We were off chasing BBQ covers and the like last week with all that wind, as well. On the bright side, I didn't have to sweep leaves off the porch afterwards.

I think that cover is still out there... never did get the chance to go out and get it, lol
