Even with the window unit, my room is a little warm to be comfortable until the unit has been running for at least a couple of hours (the joys of working in the reclaimed attic...).
This means that while Dave tried his hand at being Michelangelo on the bathroom ceiling , I stayed put in front of my computer in the guest room sorting through folders (and folders and folders) of paper files (remember that two drawer lateral file cabinet I removed from my room?).
I removed another two leaf-bags worth of paper trash from my home and my life. Every time I sort through this stuff, I am amazed by what I have felt compelled to keep. Ah well, better late than never. And the house still doesn't require the intervention of the Clean House crew, so I guess we must be doing something right!
And our Movie Night friends will be pleased to know that I located (most of) the recipes that were shared, so, along with some that co-workers have given me and some I've used myself at potlucks, I'm now working on the Movie Night and Other Potlucks Recipe Book. And if the recipes were signed, I'll give credit where credit is due. I also forewarned Dave that we will have to test out each of the recipes to be sure they are correct. Well - all except the one that isn't making it in the book - I'll share that with you now:
Go to store.
Go to frozen food section: pizzas.
Pick out favorite DiGiorno pizza.
Follow package directions.
For the next couple of months, at least, I'll split my "free" time between the files that need to be scanned, the recipe book, genealogy, and handwork - all either in the guestroom with the vent and a fan or downstairs in the living room (which is the coolest room in the house).
Progress is progress, even if it's not in front of the sewing machine and ironing board.
