We got the screened in porch cleaned up fairly well. Unfortunately, we are emptying out the POD into it, so it still isn't back to normal.

You cannot be too gentle, too kind. Shun even to appear harsh in your treatment of each other. Joy, radiant joy, streams from the face of him who gives and kindles joy in the heart of him who receives. All condemnation is from the devil. Never condemn each other. ... Keep silent, refrain from judgment. This will raise you above the deadly arrows of slander, insult and outrage and will shield your glowing hearts against all evil.

I empathize, TT. I'm almost finished cleaning out the garage, but then I want to set a table up in there so I can continue to bring clutter out of the house for processing. It almost seems counterproductive, but I suppose it isn't much different than cleaning the counter to make dinner (and a new mess).

The last of our patio furniture arrived yesterday. I just need to do a bit of spot cleaning where birds have left their marks, and then get into the habit of using chair covers on the chat set. My dh has been sitting outside almost every day after work. New patio furniture was a great idea.

I hired someone to help me with the garage on Thursday. We got about half of it done in 2.5 hours, and then yesterday I did a bit more. Today I will finish. I have posted a lot of things for sale and took a load to the thrift store. I have a box of items set aside for delivering to people. I filled about two of those wheeled garbage cans full of garbage. I knew it was bad, but I didn't expect to be throwing away so many shoes and old sports equipment!

I'm getting over the flu, so I'm not going to put too much pressure on myself today. Finishing the garage will be it. Hopefully the lady who helped me (she has a cleaning and personal organizing business) will have time again to help me this week. I asked her to keep my on her fill-in list for Thursdays. She was a big help. I was afraid of being overwhelmed but we worked well together.

I have a slow week this week and I hope to actually get some things out of the house!
