    Default Week-long Pyramid Challenge - Week 4

    But this time, with a twist!

    For those of you who can't come up with 43 items every week (or for those of you who don't WANT to come up with 43 items every week), the mini-challenge for the week is to come up with two things every day for six days, then one thing on the seventh, for a baker's dozen.

    As for me, my 43 items are in my blog.

    Good luck to anyone who decides to keep on keeping on!!

    I am in. I love this. Like I mention previously, I like it more for the list of things I would like to get done for the day. So mine are mostly daily chores but with some extras thrown in there.

    Thanks madhen! I guess I am a masochistic just like you!

    For Saturday...

    1. take care of sauerkraut
    2. sweep floors
    3. deep clean one bathroom
    4. put away quilts
    5. finish one handbag
    6. put clean dishes away
    7. clean out fridge
    8. tidy master bedroom
    9. take pictures I need
    10. take extra yarn to farmhouse
    11. find more yarn for handbags
    12. wash/dry/put away one load of laundry

    ~I'm in again! These challenges have really helped me keep up with all the stuff I would rather procrastinate about.
    This morning I already finished piecing the last row onto the t-quilt I'm working on and sandwiched and basted it. I should probably count it but I want to challenge myself today.

    Today's really tiny, small, little things:

    -go to yard sale/clothes for quilts
    -fold basket of towels
    -put away all laundry
    -change sheets bedroom 1
    -change sheets bedroom 2
    -stitch all around t-quilt edge
    -tie t-quilt
    -fold over edge for binding and stitch t-quilt
    -pull out one bag of fall clothes and sort/wash/put away as appropriate
    -Fall Fling at least 20 items
    ETA the 2 things I missed. Saturday is 12 things to do just in case anyone else is confused like me this morning.
    -water houseplant
    -cut 10 felt pieces

    Houseplants are watered. It is raining, which is messing up my clothes-drying schedule, so I'm off to do some other things instead, hoping that I'll get a clear patch and not be reduced to using my electric dryer.

    ~I just got back from the "yard sale". It was too wet today for it so my mom and I went to two new thrift shops. Oh boy was that fun! Spent $30 even.
    Anyway I'm gonna chill with my hot tea and a donut before attacking the rest of my list.~

    Finches and parakeets cages are cleaned. Had a little "surprise" in the zebra finch cages. I have not been providing nest boxes, because I don't want more zebra finches. Well, the little buggers snuck one by me, because as I was gathering up what I thought was just a pile of shredded newspaper, out falls what appears to be a 2-3 week old baby finch!!! AIGHHH!!! I have her in a nest box, hoping the parents will go back and continue to feed her, but I'm going to have to spoil my "no spend" day and run out to buy some formula, just in case they don't.

    Very. But it is very embarassing, because the presence of a two week old chick means it has been WAY too long since I changed their paper!!!

    Dishes in the dishwasher and clothes in the laundry, so off and running again. I was distracted by having to run out and buy baby bird formula.

    ~I probably won't get to tying the quilt tonight. I'm still trying to decide whether to use embroidery floss or yard. I'll probably end up hand quilting the baby quilt I'm working on instead. So I'll bump tying and binding to later in the week and replace the with hand quilting and cutting 10 more felt pieces.~
