Monday Madness

I have about 50 tasks to complete before Thursday at 7p.m. when I have to leave to pick Jerry up from the airport.  I ended up getting some mowing done yesterday evening.  We got rain earlier in the day but the good thing about this time of year is it doesn’t take long for it to evaporate.  So I got that knocked out.  Only thing left is hauling off some limbs I piled up while mowing and getting a little trimming done around the fences.  The rain was so good for my tomatoes, broccoli and Brussels sprouts. According to the forecast, we can expect some slightly cooler temperatures in the near future…much appreciated. But with all the activity in the Atlantic and Caribbean, who knows what we can expect over the next week or so.

I am about to get this house cleaned today.  Really cleaned.  It will take all day.  And time permitting, I would like to get one  section (at least) of my cabinets cleaned out.  New shelf paper and all.  I wish I could adopt Jessica’s “Monday is Cleaning Day” program but I can’t seem to stay on task very well.  Shocking, huh?

Let’s see what else do I need to make you privy to?  Ummm….oh yeah, I am working on the Autumn Issue of the NotQuiteJuneCleaver newsletter.  You can find a sign up box in the right column.  It will be an e-newsletter and likely will be enlisting some help writing it.  So much on my list to do!

  • house cleaning
  • candlemaking
  • newsletter writing
  • apron sewing
  • other various craft projects
  • menu planning

Okay, that doesn’t look like that much – maybe I need to be more efficient.  That could be the problem!

You all have a lovely week.  Don’t forget about the GREEN photo contest. Here’s a little more inspiration.

So many tasks, such little time. Love the golf cookies, how cute. I’m excited about a autumn newsletter, I’m going to sign up now.

Those cookies look amazing!!! And your to-do list is huge! It looks like what I hope my to-do list will look like one day! Haha…first I just need to learn how to make candles, sew, and suddenly become crafty!
