Chores and Rewards

I had today off from work, and while I didn’t have the most productive day, I did get a couple of nagging tasks done. First off, I dealt with somewhere between six and eight months of mostly-unopened mail:

Longtime blog readers may recall that once upon a time, I started a quest to eradicate junk mail from my life, and while I’ve been fairly successful, it’s time to update a few of my subscription-killer options, because I’m starting to get catalogs again. I did find a couple of critically important things in the mail – like a $50 check, and my Springsteen tickets for next month – so it felt like a pretty successful undertaking.

I also cleaned out my desk and the junk drawer in my bedroom – neither of which I photographed before getting started – but still, it was quite satisfying to get everything wrangled.

I rewarded myself for getting these tedious projects done with a picnic at Yards Park with my friends. The weather was pleasant, the company enjoyable, the location lovely, and the wine plentiful. A wonderful evening!

    It must be the little August cool down, as we have been taking chunks out of the garage junk. The piles to toss are much larger than the piles that need a specific place. How do you stop junk mail, especially the notices for credit “opportunities”?? ow are the kitties doing?
