Fun Versus Work

I have the feeling I'm going to be struggling with balancing out the need to have down time while I also have a long long list of things to get done. Things I want to get done include:going through the garage and organizing all the things out there including bringing in the last of Vicki's … Continue reading Fun Versus Work

Mini Vacation

Ken has flown the coop to visit our daughters in Georgia.  This means I get the house to myself (mostly).  Our middle daughter has moved home so she's there when she's not working.  However, I have the next five days off.  I've got plans, so many plans - too many to get done in a … Continue reading Mini Vacation

Projects – Done and To Do

This week I've finished the scarves and the afghan for my student workers' graduation gifts.  I've given one gift which is why I'm posting the two pictures.  For the afghan, I need to take pictures.  I plan to publish four of the scarf patterns and the afghan pattern.  This adds to my list of crochet … Continue reading Projects – Done and To Do

Crochet Savior!

My middle daughter moved home.  March was chaotic with her moving.  April is turning into chaos with getting our house organized - or reorganized and integrating her stuff into our house. I'm finally tackling my office.  Currently it's in that state of extreme messy because I've been going through papers, shelves, drawers in order to … Continue reading Crochet Savior!

Where did the week go?

This week sleep has been interrupted - I sleep for two hours and wake up; but writing has been fast and furious all week.  Starting last Friday, Ken and I have been busy.  We drove to Indiana to visit Vicki.  We spent Saturday with her and in the evening we drove home. We got home … Continue reading Where did the week go?

Last night I made a list of what I wanted to get done today.  I meant to get up early, get to work, and keep at … Continue reading Bad Sleep

Errands, Bookwork, Snow, and Organizing

This morning I got up much earlier than I wanted to but I paid bills, did budget, and placed an order with our butcher shop - Sorgs.  Ken and I ran out to Sorgs through snow and wind.  After Sorgs and bringing the stuff home, we went to Joann's, Home Depot, and Wendy's.  At Joann's … Continue reading Errands, Bookwork, Snow, and Organizing

Weekend Work

After answering emails and doing a bit of work on the computer, I worked on organizing the craft room.  I got yarn put away, Vicki's yarn condensed into fewer containers, and shelves cleared so we could get the organizer in the closet.Ken helped by putting together the organizer.  Then we had to try different things … Continue reading Weekend Work

Wishing for Two of Me

Tomorrow, Ken and I are going to work on a plan for the closet.  I'm hoping we can get a plan in place so the closet can be a more useful space than it currently is.  I'm also hoping we can spend as little as possible on the closet. After lunch we are going to … Continue reading Wishing for Two of Me

Juggling Life

Finished the Fablehaven series last night at 2:00 am.  I should have put the book up but I just couldn't.  It means I'll be tired today.  I have to figure out what book I'll be reading next.  I know it may seem strange but I usually have a book on my kindle, one on my … Continue reading Juggling Life
