    Awesome Job, MM!!

    I'm gonna call it a day today...

    All Daily Chores done except I didn't eat breakfast and therefore didn't take my Vitamins.

    Today I:
    Did some more research on the garden
    Cleaned my desk of the new mail
    Paid more bills for Dad
    Started 19 new seedlings
    Also did some tidying up of my potting bench and bins
    Tidied up around the house

    ETA: I went through all the bookmarks on my laptop and got them saved on my regular computer.

    Went through all the recipes I had saved on my laptop and got them all copied in to the MasterCook program on my regular computer. Been wanting to do that FOREVER!!

    I was thinking I hadn't gotten much done today, but let's review:

    ~knitted fifteen rows on capelet.
    ~taught myself approximately 47,824 new cuss words while knitting fifteen rows on capelet.
    ~contemplated ripping up capelet, throwing it in the lake, or burning it in the fireplace while teaching myself approximately 47,824 new cuss words while knitting fifteen rows on capelet.
    ~cleaned up four large Dutch ovens which should have been cleaned two days ago, but my back hurt too badly.
    ~taught myself six new cuss words after finding out the seasoning is damaged on the Combo Cooker because it didn't get washed right away.
    ~put away all the CI used in the demo. *whew*
    ~crocheted half a fish.
    ~made homemade granola bars from an untried recipe. Not bad, no new cuss words needed.
    ~made tortillas.
    ~made chicken quesadillas, yum.
    ~found room in over-stuffed pantry for six half-gallon jars of olives.
    ~hand-washed a bunch of dishes from the demo.
    ~medicated the dog.
    ~remembered where I put the cell phone we've been looking for for several months. Yea!
    ~found out the cell phone battery will no longer hold a charge after being dead for several months. Boo!
    ~contemplated buying new cell phone.
    ~learned thirty-six new cuss words when Dish quit working so we have no TV.
    ~learned 87,592 new cuss words when we found out Dish no longer has 24/7 tech support and we can't reach them till Tuesday.
    ~drilled holes in the tops of two plastic canisters which are now dandy yarn dispensers for knitting.
    ~wrote e mail complimenting the staff of the Lowe's store where we bought the stuff to remodel our kitchen and fired it off to Corporate with a note to forward it to the management and staff at that particular store. Kudos only, no cuss words. Great staff there.
    ~picked tomatoes.

    Maybe tomorrow will be more productive.
