Last weekend, I changed the seasonal decorations in my house. I do this periodically - five times a year. So I went from summer (with seashells and suchlike) to fall (colored leaves and lots of brown stuff). This involves a great deal of going up and down the basement steps, carrying large, sometimes heavy, boxes since all the decorations not currently in use are stored down there. There are 3 or 4 boxes for each season. So I brought up the empty boxes to put the summer stuff in and also the full and heavy boxes filled with fall stuff. when I finished decorating, I had to reverse the process and take all the boxes back down.
The kitchen decorations are fake flowers, leaves, etc. and are all stored in a huge plastic bag. They are really easy to haul up and down, thank goodness. The glass items, of which I have many, are stored in three other boxes, so I have to get into those as well, although sometimes I can do that in the storage room and just bring up the items I want to display. Anyway, it's a lot of up an down and a lot of lifting heavy boxes off and on shelves (some above my head). If that wasn't enough, on Monday I redid the jewelry cases at the Hospital Gift Shop, taking out the summer stuff and putting in the fall items. I've gotten a lot of compliments on them, so I can say without prejudice that they look really good! I haven't been able to take good photos of the jewelry cases in the shop, too much reflection from the glass, but I'll try again today, with the flash turned off. (If I remember to take the camera with me, of course.)
