    I'm off work today on sick leave, so I owe it to the company to just sit in a chair all day, right? Actually, I'm much better today, but had already arranged for a student worker to take my shift this morning. Extra money for him, a free day for me, so I'm going to let it stand. Still, there are a few low key things on my list.

    1. Water table plant
    2. Wash dishes
    3. Declutter kitchen
    4. Declutter bedroom
    5. Put away shopping (from Monday )
    6. Gather up trash
    7. Take and post doily-ghan progress pic
    8. Listen to six hours of Les Mis for group read
    9. Download Les Mis to Kindle
    10. Finish doily-ghan (may slurp over to Sunday)
    11. Put away WIPs on hold
    12. Choose next doily-ghan pattern and yarn (these are way fun!)

    I am not letting myself off of the hook for unfinished business last week, so today will be a challenge to get those last few things done, and still tackle another twelve:
    • clean kitchen counters
    • pick up clutter in bathroom
    • iron any clothes that need it from yesterday's laundry
    • dust shelves in bedroom
    • stage two of deodorizing fridge (vinegar out, baking soda in)
    • set up "coffee bar" in bedroom
    • move bottled water to storage
    • go through "bug out" list and check off completed items
    • wash/replace bedsheets
    • clean/check vermicomposter
    • clean off other shelf in bunnies' room
    • pick up clutter off floor in bunnies' room (before dump run)
    Stragglers:
    • take garbage to dump
    • shake out area rugs
    • return books to library
    • call re: Girl's meds (can't do that until after weekend)
    • finish TN report

    I really did have a play day. I was working on the afghan, took a break and what did I do? Downloaded a new dumb match-3 computer game. Guess what I've been doing ever since? But no regrets, since it seems like forever since I've had such an extended play date with the computer. I listened to a favorite Pratchett book while I did it, so it all fun.

    Play today, work tomorrow. After all, tomorrow may never come!

    It is basically because I am non-functional until I get my first cup of coffee, so now I just have to stumble about two feet away from my bed to get my fix.
