May 13, 2021 – Our #1 Learned Lesson This Move : Number the Boxes and Make a Digital List!

Moving - Box List Inventory
Moving – Box List Inventory

Such a simple idea, and Sheila says she’s either read or heard something similar, but only occurred to me this morning searching for random items I must’ve stuffed into a box with other stuff and now can’t find them – number each box, make a list of what goes in there, and make sure the list is also digital so it can be searched for in a file, something like, “box list folder.” 😊

Some boxes might only list one item, like Adan’s t-shirts. Or have half a dozen or more items, ie: fitness tracker charger, extra hair brush, surplus unused backup soaps, pack of AAA batteries – well, you can see where I’m going with this. Seems like Sheila and I typically end up with a bunch of boxes with random collections of mish-mash, lol!

Necessity sometimes is the mother of inspiration, and that’s what prompted the idea I’m sure. I’m still short several key items, plus the usual dozen or more things I’ve already forgotten I have and I’ll eventually, sooner or later, feel I need.

And that’s before I get to the knick-knacks of my art stuff! 😏

Well, now we know!

And may we not need to do that any time soon!

We are enjoying our new location more and more, getting more done (moved the digital antenna to a better location in our place this morning), plus I’m beginning to lay a base to work myself back to actually painting (found a 24 pack of Arteza Real Watercolor Brush pens & a 6×9 pad of H2O paper), but realistically, with necessary chores like car maintenance & inspection, taxes, upcoming dr appts and I forget what else) we’re happy to be able to pace and make progress.

This morning I also uploaded my 1st greenbelt photo to Fine Art America.

It’s not via my Cannon camera, but once I find it, I should be able to upload a bigger megapixel / resolution shot.

I’m playing with the idea of creating 1 or more BW digital versions I can do monochromatic color studies from. Nothing fancy, less pressure, e-a-s-e my way back into painting.

Plus keep taking fun pics of our new surroundings ♥️

Maybe that’s my real #1 lesson –

Keep adapting; have fun!

Take care everyone!
