Last week we sold our cottage. This week I gave away some things on Freecycle.org. I still felt overwhelmed with stuff so today I decided it was time to clean out the garage attic. When I went up there a few days ago there were 5 cats (I have no idea where they came from) and a snake who appeared to have taken up residence. There's lots of evidence of mice up there too. Here's what it looked like before I started. This is just a small section of the attic. There was lots more.
