    Today is looking busy.

    -- mail package
    -- check drugstore for marked down candy
    -- sign up for community garden
    -- finish grocery shopping

    Lot of driving around today. We don't eat a ton of candy, but DH likes a bite size one in his lunch now and then and I might as well get them on markdown. Going by the grocery to pick up doorbusters.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    I use "Better than Bullion". It is a paste that comes in a jar. Seems a little expensive, ~$5 per jar, but you only use a tsp per cup of water, so it makes a LOT of soup. And of course, carrot, celery, onion and a bay leaf in the pot.

    I had a list of stuff to do today but had to deal with a personal issue this morning and now I am drained, physically and emotionally.

    Worked today and ran into Meijer for a few items. Finished getting tax stuff ready so will plan on dropping that off when I'm in town either Saturday or Tuesday. Trying to get woodstove going again, some days take longer than others! Dropped off some DVD's at the library and picked up the last This Is Us (season 1) DVD to watch, so will start that tonight.

    My mom visited this afternoon. We cleaned the bathroom, vacuumed, and ran the dishwasher twice before she got here. I baked bread and made soup for our lunch.

    Tomorrow:

    - Make the granola I still haven't made.
    - Run dishwasher.
    - Make a wish list for my birthday in three weeks. Want some winter clothes that are still on sale at my favorite outdoor store.

    I like thyme in most soups. It is growing like crazy and seeding itself at the garden plot.
    Returned library book, worked and came home when it started snow/sleeting. Decluttered and shredded papers.
    Tomato seedlings are coming up. Sunday - start more seeds?

    Thyme is probably my favorite herb.

    I deleted a lot of bookmarks, apps, and Facebook likes and subscriptions yesterday.

    - Some financial stuff - done.
    - Declutter.
    - Drop stuff off at the thrift store.

    This morning I have been working on going through old photo albums and taking only the pictures out that I want to keep and getting rid of the rest. I think I have gone through 5 or 6 so far. I have quite a few so this is going to take awhile but it will eventually get done. I don't want to keep photo albums anymore, they just take up to much room.

    For the rest of the day:

    ~ laundry
    ~ make a big salad
    ~ make dinner
    ~ pay bills
    ~ go through magazines and toss

    Still working on the photo albums. I did run a load of laundry through, wrapped a present, paid a bill and wrote out a check for a donation to a dog rescue. I think it's going to be one of those days that I do a little of this and a little of that.

    My aunt has passed away and we were supposed to drive (40 miles) to the viewing tonight but I heard they are also going to have a viewing time before the funeral tomorrow so we will go early to the funeral to pay our respects. I was down in that area yesterday for work and the pot holes are so bad in that county that it was like driving in a war zone, literally! It has been all over the news how horrible driving is there so I only want to risk a flat tire and front end alignment once this weekend.

    - Help moveing - done.
    - Grocery shopping.
    - Run dishwasher - done.
    - Laundry.
