Thanksgiving is looming, followed by Christmas. Time to knock out all those little pesky things that you told yourself, this time last year, you'd do before guests arrived! I know you MEANT to dust that clock, or change the battery in that remote, but there it sat, all year, just mocking you.

Time to take back your house! Show those dead batteries who is in charge! (Also, turn your clocks back!!)

Let the challenge begin!!

I'm not sure how much I can participate this week, because I really want to get my mom's mitts knitted, and that's going to take up most of my time because I don't knit fast. So I'll probably go back to posting what I've done instead of planning ahead.

Today I've already:
1. Loaded and run dishwasher.
2. Run some errands.
3. Knitted on mitt.
4. Fixed cat collar.
5. Researched new freezer purchase.
6. Looked up mitt pattern.
7. Knitted on chemo cap and running out of yarn.

Not feeling very productive today. It's cloudy outside and it just makes me tired. But I'm working on the mitt and The Sweater, so that's something.

Just the usual here.

I washed up some cast iron pans, baked buns, re-wound some thrift yarn that needed re-winding, called my doc about meds, watered a couple plants, petted the dog who needed it, petted the cat who didn't, exercised, and am currently knitting mitts. Okay, NOT knitting mitts this very second, but you get the idea.

Why is it so helpful on days when I don't feel like I'm doing anything, to list all this little stuff and feel more productive instantly?

Well, I almost finished the first mitt, so that's something. And I made supper which will also be supper tomorrow night, so that's done. Potato sausage, potatoes, and carrots, yum! Haven't had potato sausage in a long time. Don't know why, we just haven't thought about buying any.

Anything involving exercise rates a 'WTG'!

I got a few things done today. Mostly I'm working on the second mitt which is about half done now.

1. Make WW soup.
[-]2. Finish mitt.
3. Cast on second mitt.
4. Exercise.
5. Work on The Sweater.
6. Put out suet.[/-]
7. Medicate dog.
[-]8. Edit review.
9. Rewrite captions.[/-]
10. Load dishwasher.

So tomorrow I'll still need to make soup and load the dishwasher. Most likely, the dog will get her meds later tonight, but that'll need to be done tomorrow too. Tomorrow, I''ll attempt the following:

1. Exercise.
2. Finish mitt.
3. Make soup.
4. Work on The Sweater.
5. Put out suet for birds.
6. Make supper.
7. Clean Aerogardens.
8. Medicate dog.
