List Making and Organising!
|I noticed this sign at the music school yesterday ... it made me laugh!|
M arrived as promised yesterday and started tidying up the garden. I won't say too much here as there will be a garden post tomorrow and I don't want to repeat myself, but I will say that it looked so much better when she had finished.
I also managed to sort out a new day and timeslot for weekly piano lessons. It was much easier than I thought it would be, especially as there are four lessons still outstanding. So my new teacher will be Lily and lessons will be on a Wednesday afternoon at 3 pm, which suits me fine as, although I'm busy on a couple of Wednesday mornings every month, I will still have plenty of time for lunch etc. without needing to rush around. For the next four weeks I'll have one hour lessons to make up for the outstanding lessons and on week five will revert to a 30 minute lesson. It's a shame I can't stay with Joe but I'm sure I'll get on just as well with Lily and I do have the option to revert back to lessons with Joe on a Saturday if I want to and if he has any spare lesson slots.
Today is all about list making and organising the next batch of items to be decluttered. The list making is the easiest and is one list of ideas for breakfasts to discuss with Amy on Monday, and then a list of the camera equipment I have that I want to sell. Neither of these should take too long to do, especially the breakfast one with all your suggestions and Joy's list on her blog. Organising the decluttering on the other hand will take a lot longer and I may not finish today. Most of it is in the garage and includes things like studio lighting, car radiator grills, various tripods, and engineering 'stuff'. I need to clear some floor space before I can start as I want to photograph every item ... this is the bit that'll take longer than I am expecting ... but once I've photographed everything I can contact various companies to ask whether they are interested in buying etc. It will be good to get this all sold and out of the way.
If I have time I need to start printing out some recipes for my next lot of batch cooking. I want to work out the calories for each recipe so I can mark up the portions as I freeze them, and then organise the freezer so that meals with similar calories are stored together. This was H's suggestion, but it makes sense to me and doing it up front will save time in the long run, and should help me to stay in control of how much I'm eating ... that's the plan, anyway!
