Now that we're not land dwellers, a schedule doesn't rule our lives, at least not very often. We still have the occasion that we're meeting someone or we have to provision the boat for a departure but, for the most part, the days sort of blend together. Laundry gets done when it needs to get done, same with shopping and water hauling and gasoline buying. Now cleaning? That's another thing altogether. Cleaning gets done whenever we get tired of looking at it. Since you're in such a small space, you get to look at it up close and personal. A lot. Even with it in your face all the time, sometimes it's hard to get motivated.
Today while Tim slaved away trying to make some progress on the strengthening of the bimini mounting so we can install the solar panels, I decided to make myself useful as well and tackled my list of small, routine jobs.
- Cleaned out the sump box (I
truly hate this job. It reeks.)
- Cleaned out the sump pump
filter (This may be worse.)
- Cleaned out my pot and pan
- Put new seal on the fridge
- Defrosted the fridge.
- Put away the bunch of
supplies we just got in from Amazon (filters, water purifier, etc.
- Started soaking our shop
rags (we can't wash them in a machine anywhere since they're
- Did a trash run.
Might not seem like much but in a small space all this took 8 hours. And on a Tuesday, no less.
