    Great idea about the icon madhen!

    A bit behind today....all of a sudden a caravan of vehicles pulled in (6) all DH's buddies wanted to have a bit of fun in the mud with their vehicles and I am the designated person to run the camera for our youtube channel so after catching up on FV, I am off to finish the rest for today!

    1. jar up sauerkraut! - this is done!
    2. make two ornaments (this is now my mission to finish them!)
    3. work on baby blanket (has to be done by Wednesday!)
    4. package up parcels
    5. wash/dry/put away one load of laundry
    6. bake something
    7. dehydrate more onions - done
    8. put together 5 price tags
    9. clean dog and cats dishes and refill - done
    10. if not raining take care of garden hose - done

    Reminder to self - mail packages on Monday

    Here is one of the pranks DH did to me MM. I look so fat in this one because it was before I started the Lose a Pound a Week Challenge! Just hit the link. He filled my glass with vinegar instead of my water!

    A little late on my mid-day report, but here is where I'm at:

    1.Trim fruit trees
    2. Dust/vacuum at least one shelf in finch room
    3. Call re: wild finch
    4. Clean/organize one kitchen drawer (large utensils)
    5. Replace paper towels on holders
    6. Scrub stairs leading down to bird room
    7. Clean top of fridge
    8. Clear area on deck for stacking firewood
    9. Make at least one weeks’ worth of medicated cookies for Girl
    10. Email to vet re: lab results from Tank’s bladder stones

    I've also caught up on the peaches from yesterday, but still have to make the salt dough and get the cage put together.

    I'm tracking my daily to-do list on a separate blog, just to keep myself accountable!
