My house needs to be deep cleaned badly and using the woodstove all winter hasn't helped. Yesterday I cleaned all the cabinets in the laundry room and today cleaned about 2/3 of the cabinets in the kitchen. I also cleaned two of the light fixtures in the kitchen. I am going to just focus on these two rooms for now and hopefully get them both done within the next week or so.
~ make brownies (done)

~ laundry (one load done)I'm too busy working on my own grass to notice if yours is greener.

Visited parents today. Told my brother and parents I found a rescue dog I wanted to apply for. They agreed she sounded good. Important because I will have to take her with me when I take care of parents on Saturdays to give my brother a break. So I just submitted the application. She is 14 pounds and 1 year old, black & white border collie mix. Our cat is 9 lbs and 13 years old so I think they would be evenly matched.

dlrcpa, I love Border Collies, we have had two of them and currently still have our male, who is almost 15 and still going strong. Just be sure that you have the time and energy for a Border Collie. A young dog will most likely need A LOT of exercise and training to keep her mind active. A 2 mile walk for a young Border Collie is like stretching before a workout. LOL! Although that being said, every dog is an individual and our male is much less active than our female was. She wore me out, especially before we moved to the country. Best of luck on your new addition!
Worked in the yard yesterday afternoon and again this afternoon. It feels so good to be out in the fresh air again. Didn't do anything in the kitchen or laundry room today but plan on tackling it again on Tuesday when I have the day off.

Handsome dog. I received a reply that they had a lot of applications for this dog and I have not heard anything else so I guess I did not make the cut. I think my age and lack of fenced yard work against me on paper.

Busy day aheadurchasing new hens, watering flowers and veggies, volunteering at soup kitchen, taking bread to church food pantry from soup kitchen, meeting with theatre director to discuss costume designs, taking costumes to black box theatre and sizing pants to alter for another costume, and then making it home to make dinner: roasted potatoes and garlic, grilled weiners, and green salad. By that time I am going to sit out on the porch and enjoy the rest of the day.

Wow this used to be the busiest thread on here and now.... nothing for 3 months. What happened? Let's get it started up again.
Me and the kid have been busy with house since Sat afternoon. In all honesty mostly her. We've got a lot accomplished and a crap ton going out the door tomorrow and the next. Some donations some just putting in a dumpster. Since she's at work today I did some things that I could do by myself.
Swept ceiling on porch.. or half of it. Hurts shoulders after so long. Man the cobwebs and every time the light changed you could see more.
Dumped and cleaned the deep fryer. Refilled.
Cooked sloppy joes. Hubs fasts tonight for blood test tomorrow morning.
Made appointment for heart worm test for baby dog. Tomorrow morning.
All dishes in sink clean for time being. Hand washed a few and dishwasher ran.
Lots other stuff. And I feel it.
Still need to...
Still need to unload dishwasher.
Liner in bath trash
One endtable is almost cleaned off of all the paper and crap. Needs to finish.
Other table needs to be started but not going to happen tonight.Bank of America is THE godfather of Hell with Wells Fargo running neck and neck. When the world ends the only things that will be left are cockroaches, Walmart, Wells Fargo and Bank of America. Not necessarily in that order. The order remains to be seen.

Funny, I haven't been on here for awhile and came on today and saw your post. I have been busy with taking Devil Dog to training (a little less devilish now) and working with foster dog. I have had foster dog for 2 months now and she has made great progress. She is still hand shy but is much more comfortable around people.
I cleaned a bathroom before work and when I got home puttered around outside watering plants and refilling bird baths while watching dogs. Did not get much done but tired today. Hopefully tomorrow will be a more productive day.I'm too busy working on my own grass to notice if yours is greener.

I think I'll join in today [and just hope that I remember to come back to look at my list and too, to come back to update. lol] I have so much to do and that I'd like to do that I'm just gonna add to the list whatever I happen to think of for now so it may end up being an ambitious looking list but trust me, that doesn't mean that even close to everything is gonna end up getting done!
