Sabar aje lah aku ni kan, nak duduk rumah pun kena ada program kann....
For sure I need a program, I just do not want to be wasting my time just doing non-productive work. The days could be very long if I don't fill it up productively.
Let see what I have in mind.
1. I plan to do spring cleaning.
There is a room nearest to the kitchen which I have been using it as store/pantry/ironing room need to be organised to make it much more "presentable" If I could have a cupboard or two in that room I could hide some of those things that are lying on the floor or plastic bags. We could also use it as prayer room for visitors when required. I am planning also to sort out hubby's old shirts and pants, my own dresses (baju kurung yang dah tak muat semua tu) the girls old dresses and see if I could give them away to charity. There some very good stuff there in big plastic bags which I bought in Mekah ( the ones with the zip, macam yang orang Bangla bawak balik negara diorang tu). I need to sort those first before giving away. So I need to also take note to find a charitable organisation (orphanage or old folks home) which would accept the donation.
2. I plan to clear the back of my house
Hubby is a collector, hehehe, of old newspapers. I had been nagging him for years to get rid of them by selling them off to the "old newspaper"man, without avail. So I am now scheaming *evil laugh* to get rid of all the old newspapers. I think it would fill a van if I were to get rid of them all. He can't say anything after that when he sees that the place were clean and clear right? Anyway, would still be dropping hint to him before that.
There are other old and unwanted things which need to be thrown away as well. With the place being cleared we can than take out some of the things from inside the house which we can store outside. Making more tidy and spacious room for the living.
3. I plan to organise the books at home
We have lots of books. But too few bookshelves. I may have to turn the room next to the master bedroom into a library. If I can organise them properly, then, we may be able to see which of them we have not read and start reading them again. I guess I have to visit furniture shops (IKEA jauh sangat) to get book racks.
4. I plan to regularly do some exercise
Yang ni pun nak cakap ke? This mission will have a special name, "Projek Mencari Waistline yang Hilang", hahahaha. Exercise is important to keep myself fit and alert. As old-age is catching up fast, I have to ensure that I am fit to also take care of my mother who is getting weaker by the day. At the same time some specific exercise to reduce flabs here and there would be very encouraging. Ni kena set target berapa inci nak kurangkan kat pinggang tu, takut aku nak measure pinggang aku la ni, sure terkejut punya lah tu hehehe. Seluar jeans aku yang masa puasa hari tu terlondeh saja rasanya dah mula nampak ketat dah. Isyy ni tak boleh jadi ni!!, Kena diet jugak agaknya ni.
5. I plan to rear ayam kampung
Kan aku ada reban. Ayam pun dah tak banyak, semua dah terlepas keluar dari reban. Nak masukkan balik susah. Aku ingat nak beli anak ayam dan bela. Bila masa hari raya tahun depan boleh buat rendang ayam kampung, tak payah beli ayam dah. Yeyy, sedapnya!!
Who knows if I am successful in a smallscale I can turn that into a big scale farming.
Sudah! Sudah! dah mula nak berangan tu hehe
6. I plan to be veggie self sufficient
Tanah keliling rumah tu dah tak ada yang ada tempat nak buat tempat tanam sayur-sayur atau apa-apa pokok pun. Kalau aku nak tanam, kena beli pasu besar. Tapi rasanya boleh sebab, hubby ada tanam pokok daun curry, selasih dan peria dalam pasu. Sekarang ni ada lah 1,2 pasu yang ada pokok serai, pandan, kunyit. Aku ingat nak tanam cili, tomato, terung, bendi gitu,gitu lah. Jadinya kalau aku nak masak tak payah nak pergi cari sayur kat pasar atau mini mart dekat sini. Petik terus dari belakang rumah. Rasanya nak tanam balik kacang botol/kelisa. Kalau ada lebih boleh bagi adik beradik atau jiran2 aku. Ni aku dah duduk kat rumah senang nak jaga.
Banyak jugak plan aku ni kan. Tu tak termasuk rutin-rutin, berinternet, bertelenovela dan acara masak memasak setiap hari tu. Penuh lah masa aku sehari suntuk agaknya. Habis tu bila pulak masa aku nak menjual nasi lemak depan rumah ekk??
