End-of-year stuff

today i tackled the end-of-year stuff around the place. And i got some exercize doing it, and wound up with a neater house and a cleaner garage.

The first thing i did was to check out some garage storage shelves at Lowe's. I've been meaning to get shelves for the last 3 years, so i decided,by golly, this year is it! So i ordered them online and picked them up at the store this morning.

i'm not very mechanically inclined, but i did manage to get these 2 sets of shelves together after a while. For someone who was so inclined,(my dear son-in-law, for example) it would have taken all of 10 minutes per unit. but the result is that i now have a clean, organized garage, and not a mess of various boxes and tubs. I can get to everything easily,nothing's going to tumble down unexpectedly, and everything is safe from minor flooding. YEA!

the next thing on the list is to get my bills and receipts sorted out. Earlier this year i had forgotten to go by Wal-mart and pick up an organizer like i had last year.
these are neat little file folders with 12 tabbed pockets (1 for each month)to keep bills and receipts sorted out. i finally remembered late in November (well i DID say it was late, LOL) that i needed one for this year, so i went out and got 2--one for this year and one for next year. Nothing like shopping ahead of time.

and yes, dear readers i did go online and order a new camera. it should be here sometime next week, so eventually i'll get to catch up on 2010 with some pictures of all the quilts i've made this year. I have it on good authority that some of you are positively DYING to see them, LOL, so be of good cheer, the wait won't be much longer.

and lastly, i'd like to put in a good word for a clothing company, called Serengeti.

I've gotten two catelogues from them recently and the clothing is to die for. what's more they show color co-ordinated outfits and accessories that look good together, are reasonably priced, and everything comes in a wide variety of sizes.

Oh, and the link didn't work so I googled and this one works.
