At any rate, today I'm full of energy and made a list this morning (totally unreasonable that it may be) and am ready to whip my weight in wildcats. (Jjust how much does one wildcat weigh?)
Here's my list:
All first-of-the-month things - This entails about an hour's worth of paperwork.
Start seedlings - Time for the Brussels sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, zinnias and cosmos to be started. Probably should repot the tomatoes, too, as long as I'm playing in the dirt.
Clean ashes out of both wood stoves - Boy, has the frequency of this job dropped drastically. (For which I am sincerely thankful!)
Make list of computer tasks for daughter - Chicken Mama is giving me some time tonight to continue the setting up of my
Pick out fabric - I'm in the process of having two living room chairs reupholstered. One is currently in the shop being worked on as we speak. (I hope.) The fabric for the second chair was on back-order for six weeks. You can guess what the news was that I received this past Monday. Yup. It's not on back-order anymore. Now it's officially no longer available. So back to the drawing board, or rather sample books, to find another fabric.
Wash rugs - Futile task that this is this time of year here in The Land of Mud, I can't stand it anymore and have to launder a batch or two of throw rugs.
Bake rye bread - Doesn't take a lot to keep my husband happy, but homemade rye bread goes a long way toward that end.
Clean the refrigerator - What can I say? It's a job that just must be done once in a while. (At least every couple of years or so.) What the heck goes on in there that makes all those gooey drips, splats and . . . and . . . dirt? (Yes, some of it looks like gritty dirt.)
Make up bee sting kit - The season for our wonderful, delightful little honey makers to be buzzing around doing all kinds of good things in my garden is fast approaching. But their stings have been increasingly causing more havoc in and on my body so I've done some research over the winter months and come up with some "new" natural remedies to have all set and ready to go should I need them. Gathering everything in one place with specific directions for use seems like a wise idea. I've also gotten an Epi-pen and both Papa Pea and I have practiced using it so that's ready should it be needed.
Change keyboard - This new keyboard that came with my
Don't know how it happened but it's nearly 1 p.m. now . . . but I do have a couple things checked off the above list. It's remarkable how easy it is to make a list first thing in the morning . . . and how hard it is to get it all done. Life (and blogging!) seems to get in the way.
