Productivity Part II  
The rest of the evening was not as productive as I had hoped, but I still accomplished a lot. I decided to do the "icky" or sweaty stuff before showering and so worked my way through:

* Cleaning all the birds cages. I swear, parakeets moult seven times a year and each time they shed enough feathers to make three budgies
* Tidying the TV room - half done 
* Folding more laundry - how can there possibly be more after yesterday? The clothing gods, they mock me.
* Tidying the bedroom and guest room
* Tracking down the suspicious smell in the garage - liquefied potatoes, if you were curious. O.o Cleaned up said smell.
* Vacuuming and mopping the hallway, guest room, and bedroom
* Tidying the Living Room/Dining Room - half done, must be completed by 1PM tomorrow
* Cleaning both bathrooms - why do boys' bathrooms always smell so much worse, even when they have not been recently occupied? I just don't get it...

THEN I finally showered. It being 10PM and having worked all day, I had a shower then went down to the Knuckle Down Saloon for drinkies with fencingkitty  and Tomas. I failed at my plan to come home at a reasonable hour and finish the living room, but had a tasty dinner and nummy Strongbow which I completely earned and fun company which was a great bonus.

* Menard's early for 2x4's (8' and 6'), paint, a pry bar, scraper, rope, screws, new fastenings for the shed door, rustoleum (white and black), bricks and ...? I'm sure I'm missing something. (aim for 10:00 start, 11:00 out)
* Lunch
* Finish cleaning living room (by 13:00)
* Dude comes by to pick of TV I freecycled (13:30)
* Rent-a-Minion comes back to fix the door (14:00?)
* Baronial folk come over for a sew day to work on a WW project (14:00)

In the evening I SHOULD finish cleaning the TV Room and furnace room, but I may end up going to a cook out. We'll see how much today's activities hurt me tomorrow. If my weeding adventures from a few weeks ago are any indication, it is gonna suck. :P I may need to medicate with some sloe liqueur or Scotch. Woe. ;D

But for now, a little bit of tidying, then bed!

Grrrrrr potatoes...

I had to hunt down that smell recently as well. Except mine was in the kitchen. I had been doing a lot of laundry and fabric washing prior to pennsic prep and only as I go to the bottom of the pile did I discover that lone potato that had rolled to the corner of the table under a pile of formerly clean towels.

So the whole pile has had to go back through the wash cycle along with some vinegar and bleach.

...they import Strongbow? O.o

And that sounds awesomely productive. I've managed to be similarly productive this past week and it feels really good.

Yeah, Strongbow is easily available in Madison and some other Midwestern Cities, but can be hard to find in smaller towns. Our local bar is owned by a local duke and sees a lot of SCAdians, so he carries it. Is it not generally available out there, even in the cities?
