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…it’s Sunday and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO JESSICA!

The big 3-0.  Please believe when you get to the big 5-1, the big 3-0 seems like nothing!  But actually I think it’s a pretty great birthday.  You are about 10 away from REALLY knowing you are a grown-up.

Wasn’t she a cutie and isn’t she a beauty?  Jerry and I made beautiful children, if I do say so myself.

I hope you all have a great Sunday.  Mine is going to be busy busy.  Lots to do…cleaning, organizing, list making – The Man comes home Thursday, God willing and the creek don’t rise.  Oh and some where I have to fit in a just a little more yard work, mowing and such.

As you noticed my post are pretty short the last few days.  Not that I don’t want to write more, I just have a lot of work before me.  More soon, I promise!

Simply Saturday Soccer with Sam

Say that 5 times real fast.  I got up at the crack of dawn this morning and headed to S-town to see the little man’s first soccer game.  It was great!  That is one enthusiastic 6 year old!  My Saturday has been filled with fun and now Sam has made it to my house for the rest of the weekend!  I have lasagna in the oven and then Hannah and I are going to catch up on DVR’d Mad Men.  Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
