Time to get going........

Picking up the pace around here...getting stuff done.  We will be starting to sell the house next week.  I arranged and rearranged rooms to make them look bigger.  Especially the office here upstairs.  That was easy and I don't know why I never thought of doing it like that before. 

Cleaned all the woodwork in the kitchen...thanks Donna for the help.  I'm glad I had it on hand.  I used to use orange oil for my teak furniture but never thought to use it on the kitchen cabinets. duh... It's a wonder worker. 

Tomorrow the living room gets a make over...it's almost empty because we threw most of the old furniture away....so that will be easy...and then down to the lower levels ...which have all been cleaned etc. but I have all our business records etc. and Christmas decorations all in one closet..which I will distribute between two closets so it doesn't look too crowded. 

Then of course this has to be the only summer where we don't have any rain.  Our back 40 is dried out.  The lawn looks like my face....all dried up a wrinkly.  Tonight I tried to take the nozzle off the hose and attach it to the sprinkler.   nope.  Gord in all his wisdom thought I might forget to turn the water off  and our our leaking nozzle would pour 5,467 litres of water down the drain. And cranked that hose down tight.  Fer fuck sakes.  I could not get the hose out of the nozzle thingamadoo. 

Things are going faster that I anticipated.  Only because they we so slow before.  Crunch time.

"They" say to de-personalize a home when you want to sell it. No family pictures on the walls or tables--stuff like that. Get as much out as you can to make the rooms look bigger--minimalize. Make sure the garage and the basement are cleaned out. (I watch a lot of HGTV.) Good luck on a good sale!!!

It sounds so exciting - and physically demanding all at the same time.
