Do a little tree trimming, then rearrange the pantry for aunt and uncle.
Tree trimming - 15 minutes.
Pantry - couple hours.
There's something about doing chores at someone else's house, particularly at the home of someone you love. It's rewarding to do a chore that makes a visual difference, and saves work for someone else. Plus, everyone has chores they don't want to do. What a treat, then, to have someone volunteer to do it.
Today I found tree trimming equipment hanging in a tree, where my uncle had tuckered out on the overhead trimming job. I worked on it until my shoulders gave out, then moved inside to the pantry job.
Absolutely, though I must confess the pantry job was almost overwhelming. There's any number of ways to organize a pantry. With my aunt on hand to help direct me, we cleaned it out, reorganized it and made it more user friendly for her household.
