    Today's chore is to get my car ready for training on Monday. I'm going straight there, not to the office, so I want to make sure I have everything I need.



    Stragglers:
    1. Start "enrichment box" for Herbie
    2. Check on-line for theatre/Music Circus season tickets (bday present for sister)
    3. Update case management logs
    4. Lubricate springs/hinges on cat trap
    5. Move two plants off the deck
    6. Fling 25 things (20 things flung so far)
    7. Collect up beads to make new bracelet and/or necklace

    Today I plan to:
    1. Unload dishwasher.
    2. Load dishwasher.
    3. Hand wash pint jars and put away in new cabinet.
    4. Bake buns.
    5. Make yogurt using existing yogurt, a new process for me.
    6. Freeze extra yogurt as future starter.
    7. Buy groceries.
    8. Clean up countertop to install on old kitchen island.
    9. Work on no sew rag rug.

    We'll see what happens. I should do better than yesterday, when the OAMC stuff I had to finish up took much longer than expected.

    I don't want to talk about the bead project that's been sitting on my geezer table in the living room, untouched for the past three months.

    We do have a needlework challenge, Rae. That might be where to get inspiration for your beading.

    The bead project is underway, I just need time to work on it. I started it, then we unexpectedly decided to remodel the kitchen and I haven't gotten back to it. It's a beaded wine bottle for a friend. I have gobs of them myself I use for different kinds of vinegars and oils.

    3. Hand wash pint jars and put away in new cabinet.
    4. Bake buns. RISING
    5. Make yogurt using existing yogurt, a new process for me.FERMENTING
    6. Freeze extra yogurt as future starter. Will most likely just eat it
    7. Buy groceries.

    Not there yet but it's going better than yesterday. I also:

    Hand washed a bunch of dishes.
    Watered Aerogardens.
    Fed one Aerogarden.
    Shook tomatoes and peppers to pollinate.
    Cleaned around sink.

    Ok, so far I've finished everything I've added to my list here for the week. I have three more things to get done between now and sat, or now and fri. Depending on when I want to start a new week.

    All was easy. You know my downfall. I'm doing a lot though out the day cleaning wise and so on. What I'm not getting done with is personal fun stuff, crafty stuff, things that make me feel good. I think for next week. I will make a list of things I want to accomplish for myself. Not just cleaning stuff. I added some of those things before, like reading a book, catching up on shows etc. I think for next week I will make a fun to do list here and a regular to do list in my journal. Mix things up a bit.

    So, if I get done with three more things it'll be 43 things this week.

    My three things...

    Give daughter a bath (easy huh? Not with a kid who decided she now hates baths! Laugh!)

    Finish Rice/heat pack for myself ( FINALLY!!!!)

    And left over...

    Watch 80's movie with husband.

    Plan is to have these all done by tomorrow so Sunday I can have a new list.

    Wow, the bottles are beautiful! I'd much rather play with beads than work in the kitchen. My lists always have a lot of play things.

    Reprieve! I don't have to go in until 1:00 tomorrow instead of nine, so it cuts my workday down to a more manageable 10 hours. I probably won't post again tonight, so the update:

    1. Catch up with dishes - almost finished and then I cooked. Back to square 1. I'll try to do it all by bedtime.
    2. Take out trash - Still collecting it. I'll probably drop it off as I leave the apartment tomorrow. May take it tonight.
    3. Finish doilyghan - almost done. Will probably finish it up tonight.
    4. Finish the group read book - Done
    5. Necessary (easy) cooking for coming work days - Done, as soon as I get up and pull the roasting veggies out of the oven

    I didn't get all my dishes done either but almost.

    Didn't get the jars washed or anything done with the countertop for the old island, but I still did pretty well. Got everything else done on the list! YEA!
