    Default November To-Do Challenge

    Apparently we're all too busy "doing" to start the new thread! That's a promising sign!

    1/3 on 1 November... took and passed the second half of my test, but didn't make it to finance and didn't eat healthy.

    2 November: (1) Ran out to VA to a poultry swap and got some new pullets to keep our barred rock company. Got three rabbits, too... they are soooo cute, and Mr Rabbit is already doing his thing, so we'll probably have babies in a month or so. (2) Took a bunch of trash to the dump (3)cleared tons of brush from the side of the house and ran two vanfuls to the dump.

    Today, Sunday 3 November:

    - Figure out housing situation for my new rabbits
    - Insulate the attic
    - Catch up on Once Upon a Time before tonight's episode
    -And, the one I'm most likely to do--- spend waayyyyy too much time ogling all the cute new animals.
    In times like these, it helps to recall there have always been times like these.

    Good reminder about the garlic, pinetree! I need to get some planted, as well!

    The soup in cooking on the stove and the bird cages are cleaned, so 2/3 so far!

    I did it! I moved the dresser! Yeah it was heavy and I still did it! Thank goodness for the healing powers of water - threaded water for 40 minutes! Now I have to put everything away in our BR _ after the football game!

    I probably SHOULD have planted the garlic last month, pinetree, but I think I'm still safe. I don't plant nearly that many! That must have taken you all day!

    Kitchen is 2/3 clean. I have one last counter to tackle.

    Glad to see everyone's getting so much done!

    3/3, and got a little quality time in with my new animals. One of the new chickens likes to "sing"--it's really adorable-- she sort of warbles and coos. And I bought two hutches for the rabbits (the girls are sharing for now) and hubs assembled them. Full disclosure, the attic is only about 1/2 done, but that's as far as it's getting for a while-- too much junk up there. Planning to finish it on Thanskgiving weekend when we pull down all the Christmas stuff (which will greatly reduce how much is left in my way...)

    Also finished (for now) clearing the side of the house (need to get some round-up and spray everything that's left. The vines and wild shrubs just go crazy over there,) ran a load of dishes and all the dirty laundry. Cleaned the TV room so that we could catch up on our show. Emailed our wishlists to SIL, at her request and requested ideas back. Oh, and *FINALLY* got the (#*#@)@!!! Tupperware sorted/culled/put away neatly.

    I'm *TIRED*!!!

    Monday:
    - sort out some clean laundry, of course...
    - clean the dining room windows/storm windows, then shrinkwrap
    - clean the kitchen
    In times like these, it helps to recall there have always been times like these.
