I did absolutely nothing today that required very much physical energy and I am tired!

Prepared stew beef and pork ribs for meals next week.  That surely was not hard, put them on the stove and let them simmer for about 4 hours.

Looked at every picture in 2 sweater size boxes that my mom had, some I threw away because I have no idea who they are.  Bless her, she tired to write the names and some ages on the back of a few.  A great grand son she noted as being 2 weeks not 2 months on more than one pic.  That’s ok, she was probably close to 90 when she was making these notes.

The purpose of going thru those pics is to once again have the room she used livable.  Once I brought things from her house to mine, I more or less closed the door on that room.  It is past time, a long time past that I should get it back to being a part of our house rather than the room Mother used.  Yes, I used it as needed when she was in the nursing facility, but since she died, I have put off what needed to be done.   This is just a part of my retirement goals.  Get the house clean, straight and much less cluttered and keep it that way.

Enough whining—hope you each enjoy your Saturday.
