    I think my list will have to roll over to tomorrow again. We got hung up most of the day searching online for a certain step stool we want by our kitchen island, so didn't get much done

    But we did clear off the kitchen table, so that's something. It's been piled full of tools for a while now, which is embarrassing to admit. Two of our chairs need to be repaired and I'll try to get that done tomorrow. But the table looks nice with a Christmas tablecloth, and I even dug out the winter dishes to use for the season.

    So far today, I have:

    1. Sewed five re-usable produce bags and a salad spinner bag.
    2. Searched and located fabric to make cover for new mixer.
    3. Made supper.
    4. Sewed zipper in The Sweater and only had to cuss a little.
    5. Wound some recycled yarn into balls.
    6. Found a space to store some yarn containers.
    7. Petted the dog, who needed it.
    8. Replaced misplaced cat bed for cat who needed it and told me so.
    9. Fed shrived grapes to deer.

    Okay, so I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel here but it all helps.
