1. I’ve been on a major quest to reorganize my house. We’ve been in this house 14 years, you’d think I’d have figured out the best place to keep my spatulas. I’ve been reading a book called Eliminate Chaos (first step for me was to get the e-version from the library LOL). Unlike the 5 million other books I’ve read about organizing and getting rid of clutter, this one is actually sparking ideas in my head. I booted the “kid drawer” from my kitchen (don’t worry, they have their own cabinet in the dining room) and now my less used utensils have their own home. And why is the green tea on a shelf that’s easy to reach when I don’t drink green tea? And my nuun (which I refuse to fess up to the amount I drink) is in the living room. Um, yeah. Lots of things getting shuffled around with a few things dropping in the trash or donation box. All good, but hella time consuming.
2. Last weekend I attended a meeting for Lead Volunteers for the Girls on the Run NOVA race. It’s one of the biggest GOTR races with over 7000 runners. Like last year, I’ll be hanging out at the start/finish lines. Also like last year, it’s my job to keep the first row of girls from starting before the gun. Last year, that involved standing as a human barrier on the start line. I do this because I enjoy it, but this year the organization gave us lovely pendants as a thank you, which I thought was very cool.
3. And guess what I’m doing today, probably while you are reading this? I’m hanging out at Mad Fox Brewpub, helping brew a batch of Wee Heavy. That’s right. I’m hanging out with the brewer. Making one of my favorite beers.
You can be jealous now. ;o)
