January Cure 2018 | Surface Sweep

I do have a few hot-spots to sweep and my favorite tool is waiting for me to come home from work…

Since everything has been cleaned during January that should not take long.

But – late Sunday evening was a good time for making a list of things unfinished…

If I make it home in time I should be able to cross of this list today.

With my “no shopping” mantra for January I have not been spending time looking for stuff to buy but I wish I had this bedspread…

…and the big window with the tree outside – but forget the walls 🙂

January Cure 2018 | Sunday Project

Not everything goes according to plan 🙂 Of course I didn`t have enough film to cover my door. I have to order a new one for the door. Maybe this one…

…and to hide that ugly wall outside my craft room window..Fun – but too much?

I had use for the film anyway…

My new bedroom has the window against my entrance so this might be smart. This lets the light in but no one can see in…

…In addition to the blinds it works fine.

I was up bright and early today to deal with what was left in the storage upstairs…

This is an old photo – it was much worse after the girls played house up here 🙂

I have been doing a little bit every day during January. Today I could clean the floor…

It has been almost 5 years since I had to use this room for storage and it should have been cleared out 4 years ago – but it has been too overwhelming to even think about it. Thanks to the cure I am now done.

At the end of a long week

Since the first weekend in January was all about cleaning floors I thought it was a good idea to do it all over again this last weekend. I did not see myself doing that today after working 70 hours this week but sometimes I surprise myself. Before getting out of the uniform I had all the mats outside, all the floors vacuumed and cleaned. Now I am out of the uniform, ready for dinner and it is almost bedtime.

No big plans for Sunday – just a small project…

Sunday Project

Since no one is living upstairs anymore I never close this door. Then of course I let all the heat go up the stairs. This last week I have closed the door at it so much warmer inside the apartment. A year ago I bought  film to add to the windows just in case someone moved in upstairs and I want to see if it makes it cozier inside. It was a cheap film so I might want a nicer one if it is a successful attempt,

January Cure 2018 | Weekend 4

My weekend starts today at 6.30 AM…

It is dark, wet and cold.

I will spend my day here…

Doing a little bit of every thing…

…but most of all I will be welcoming the weekend costumers money…

Since I will be working two shifts (again) I will be here for 13 hours – and tomrrow I will be doing it all over again.

Good thing I woke up to a clean bathroom this morning…

January Cure 2018 | 30-min Closet Cleanout

I have been ready for today`s assignment since January 1. Not that I have much cloths in the first place and what I have is mostly old shit. So – 10 minutes and my bag was full…

Another five minutes and my old curtains were sorted…

Letting of the old curtains was no fun but now they are gone…

Feels good…

Since I was up and running I took several trips up stairs removing old printers, leftover IKEA kitchen materials, old craft supplies, remnants of floorboards, lighting fixtures, kitchen faucets…oh, the things you collect 🙂

I can see the end in the tunnel. Cleaning out the upstairs was not on my list for this January Cure so I am a little impressed of what I have accomplished so far. Of course I still have a lot of stuff to deal with in my new craft room…

This might go on long in to February 🙂
