I have to say that adjusting to retirement has been interesting and this past month has definitely had a different feel than "summer vacation" in the past... for example, I don't feel as if I need to rush on projects. Don't get it finished today? That's okay... plenty more time to get it done.
I've been doing a number of little chores around the place such as taking apart and cleaning my vacuum cleaner and mopping the front porch... fun stuff that no one notices but you. However, I have started hoeing out the sewing room, which consists of many steps. I've been offered help but honestly, the hauling stuff out and cleaning is the easiest part. The organizing/putting away will take some time but the hardest part: rearranging sewing furniture in a 10'x10' room with wall-to-wall closet doors. Not many places to put stuff.
It would help if I moved the desk and file cabinet out of the room but I don't know where I'd put it. I like having all my "office stuff" together, and when following an online tutorial, it does help to have my laptop in the same room as my sewing machine.
(Yes, there are holes in the radiator cover... yet another project ahead of me.)
I've also moved lights around and tried to brighten the dark corners of the room. The moving/cleaning part is the easiest... it's the figuring out where to put stuff that is hard. Several cups of tea were required....
No estimate on when I get this done but it's not a problem... after all, I'm retired and have all the time I want!
