    2. Read 50 pages of my book
    3. Take a shower, wash face, floss teeth, use essential oils!
    4. Cut finger nails - before I break one!
    5. Look at videos of different crochet chains
    6. Take one photo today
    (I haven't pulled out my camera forever!)
    7. Look up upholstery classes (I'd really love to take some!)
    8. Drink a glass of wine this evening (it's been a while and it sounds good!)
    9. Dishes (because they need to be done)
    10. Organize crafts for one hour (yes, if I can accomplish this, I will feel good. This is a pain in the butt!)
    11. Spend 30 minutes with daughter doing "school" stuff.
    12. Research christmas craft ideas and start planning for once!

    And the leftover....

    Finish my rice/heat pack! - Starting it in a few minutes!!
    Three things left over for tomorrow and for all that "almost' starting my finishing rice/heat pack I never did finish the set of three. Heh.

    Most of what I accomplished today involved spending piles and piles of money, but we should have almost everything for the kitchen now. We broke down and bought two fancy shmancy chrome Rev-A-Shelf double pull out units for our kitchen island. I was planning to build pull outs, so since I won't be buying the materials for that, they weren't as expensive as they seem and it won't take much time to install them as opposed to building some. I'll feel guilty till they're installed, then I'll love them so much I won't care what they cost! We may be really bad and add a couple more at some point, too.

    1. We finally selected and purchased our kitchen backsplash tile. Yea!
    2. Bought 400 pounds of deer food, so we're hoping that'll hold the little beggars till spring now.
    3. Bought 150 pounds of sunflower seeds for birds and squirrels, so that should get us into summer.
    4. Bought 75 pounds of nyjer seed, so that should hold the little peckers till fall.
    5. Bought 200 pounds of cat litter, so we're stocked on that for a while.
    6. Bought the replacement countertop for the one I miscut the first time around. Luckily, it was the least expensive piece.
    7. Picked up odds and ends we've been needing for the kitchen project.
    8. Managed to talk myself out of buying a new saw, but succumbed to the DeWalt belt sander (original price $199, marked down to $90.) I hope I have bought my last belt sander now. LOVE DeWalt tools!
    9. Avoided eating out at Grandma's restaurant, saving $30.
    10. Avoided Dollar Tree, saving at least $20.
    11. Proved I live in Minnesota by buying a snow shovel and garden seeds on the same day in the same aisle of the same store.
    12. Bought only healthy food at the two grocery stores we shopped at.

    I hate shopping! Goodwill was fun though. I bought a mixed bag of stuff for $2 for what I thought were some lanyards. The bag turned out to have a NIB Quill brand ballpoint pen, which sells for $32. I love that! It's beautiful and feels good in my hand. Also in the bag, a cute, NIP notepad with a puppy on it. Also picked up an interesting cookbook that's supposed to have all the recipes for food mentioned in the Laura Ingalls Wilder books. Should be an interesting read.

    Hopefully, our big shopping is done for a few months now. We hate it, but it had to be done, and it's a relief it's over.

    I've decided to end my week Sunday. So today for my one semi-difficult project, I'm going right now to clear off the work table in my sewing room, a task I've been trying to make myself do for months now. The sewing room looks like an episode of Hoarders.

    Wish me luck, I'M GOIN' IN!

    Oops, going to have to substitute one. I don't have one of the meds I need for Girl's cookies. So I'll change that to "organize one shelf in cupboard."
