Charmion, that is excellent news about family moving to the area!

Texas is rolling up the sidewalks again now that the governor has finally seen the light. I was planning a trip to the grocery store on Monday during senior hours, but I'll see how busy the parking lot is before deciding to go in. Costco has large aisles, that's their saving grace; I've saved up on things I usually buy there and have a rather long list. Going through a shopping service means I'm bound to miss things I forgot to put on my list but still need and will spot in the store. What I really crave right now is some sharp cheddar. I've been out for ages.

Today I've begun emptying stuff from the sunroom into the newly cleaned and emptied front room, though I've stopped for the time being to give the dust a chance to settle and to think about the next step - how much packing material can I discard to reduce the volume in there. Over time it's too easy to stash stuff, and when you see it all at one time in several containers and realize there is way more than needed, it's time to cull. A lot of it isn't recyclable, so I expect a large bag at the curb on Monday.

The craft room has gained a fresh ironing board cover; the old one was probably 25 years old. I left the old pad under the new one so it's the Cadillac of ironing board covers now. I've assembled a bunch of fabric for the next set of face masks, I mailed a bunch last week, and I have a few new orders.

What I'd like, when I finish this rearranging, is a more efficient house and something that will entertain and interest the family next time they walk in and see it so different. And decluttered.
