What to do? What to do? Onerous tasks ahead:
Hacking away the English ivy that threatens to pull the eaves off the house and touching up the paintI suppose the outdoor work should come first. The dust inside isn't going anywhere.
Trimming all shrubs
Driving across town to a laundromat with super-capacity machines to wash bedcovers currently in use and two or three bedspreads that need to be stored
Overhauling the back bedroom, which has become a repository for unneedful things
Dragging all items off bookshelves and scrubbing/dusting them
Replacing shelf paper in kitchen cabinets where needed
