I got almost all the Sunday things done last night, but the grocery lists took longer than I expected - lots of coupon organizing - so I didn't get in any crocheting time.

Bank -- Deferred to Thursday
Shop for coat -- Deferred to Wednesday

Work on brown afghan
Convert at least three tapes to digital -- Started

TUESDAY:

It's all sort of half done.

Laundry
Straighten bedroom
Work on brown afghan
Convert at least three tapes to digital

Laundry - I didn't have enough quarters to dry it all (that deferred bank trip!), so I have some I need to hang after while to dry overnight

Straighten bedroom - well, uh, no. Not yet.

Converting tapes to digital - my gadget stopped working. I'll have to haul it and the computer into work this weekend to see if the smart college students can figure it out. But there's no timeline for the project.

I did some of the cooking today so I have to clean the kitchen after while

Afghan -- I did some sitting in the laundry room, and propose spending most of the evening working on it.

This post is full of "after whiles." That's as good as it's going to get. Right now is signing off the internet and drinking tea time.

No coat shopping. Maybe next week when I'm off all week

Planned for today -

Put away all the laundry from yesterday
Staighten living room and bedroom
Finish cleaning kitchen
Clean lettuce for salad

I'll space that through the day and night, and the rest of it is PLAY time. I've been working so much I've forgotten what that feels like. It's crochet day!

Most important goals:

Finish the strips for the infamous brown afghan of another post.
Drink tea
Kick back in recliner and look out the window - now that's a task I can accomplish!
