Do you smell the smoke from the brush fires where you live? I am very aware of them as I walk Cricket in the early morning and then when I let her out for the last time in the evening. Until the sun comes out and burns away that ground fog, The smell
is very strong. It certainly affects the air quality . A whole day rain day would certainly help. I use to wait for snow days when the kids were home. That's when I would tackle projects that I had put off for much to long. The silver would get polished. Maybe
a few drawers straightened out. I've downsized so much that I don't have much silver to polish or drawers to organized. But there is always the closet. My shoes, for instance have taken over the floor of the closet. I even tried to color co-ordinate my hanging
clothes. That lasted through a few wash cycles. I do organize Bob's side. He grabs the first shirt that he sees. So I "hide" the good shirts way in the back of the rack. I am so devious.
