The nights are chill now. Time for hot tea at night. Time to snuggle under soft sheets and warm blankets.
But, of course, I can't just change the sheets. Not me. No, I have to vaccuum the box springs and mattresses and then flip them. I have to wash down the headboards, footboards and siderails.
And then I have to rearrange and purge the linen closet.
Which isn't really a closet of course, but a shelf unit here in the basement,
and a couple of shelves here in the upstairs hall closet,
a shelf in the downstairs hall closet,
and the ottoman in the living room,
(and a two drawers in the chest in the hallway which I completely forgot about until this moment.)
After two days of climbing up and down two separate staircases, washing and drying and folding and deciding and sorting, this is what we have downstairs in the laundry room,
The summer sheets for the twin beds are here now, one bottom and one top sheet put together in a large ziploc bag. I'm rather pleased with myself for having thought of that.
upstairs in the closet,
downstairs on the shelf,
and left in the ottoman.
I have a nice pile to donate to the local animal shelter for bedding and rags.
Any fall frenzy happening where you are?
