Dad was able to put two shelves in a wardrobe cabinet repurposed into a pantry as well as take these two on a walk. Well, really one of them walked. The big one somehow coerced a ride from grandpa. I guess that is what happens when the first grandchild is a girl wearing a pink vest, purple hat, and cowboy boots. The basket came back filled with walnuts in various states of being hulled.
My mom peeled and cooked apples for sauce and now on the shelves Dad built sits seven quarts of applesauce. She also colored and read and kept the children out of the way.
I was able to clean out a closet in the basement. Well, clean out is a bit of an overstatement. I was able to sort through a couple of boxes and organize some of the pile. Storing all the paint we have used and the clearanced cans I want to find uses for takes more space than I thought and the closet shelves don't hold as much as I envisioned, but I can find my stuff in the little closet without having to take six boxes out before I could look.
It was so nice to have them come without an accident being the starting point!
