Busy, busy, busy...

I started a lot pf projects all at once.  I did keep me from being bored, but I did not make as much progress as I might have if I picked one thing and worked straight through.  My husband is great at washing laundry, but never folds it, so it gets piled on (and around) the chair in our room.  I started tackling Mount-fold-and-put-it-away. I did not finish but I did get a lot of it put away.  We do the same with cardboard, there is a mountain of it waiting to be folded in the garage.  I got about half of that folded and taken away to be recycled.  I did some canning, but have more to do today.  I got further on the sweater, and bought more yarn for it. I took a bunch of stuff to Goodwill.  I cleaned out a cupboard I had no intention of cleaning this week. And I even remembered my course work, I remembered the yarn along and even had the picture, but never got the time to do it.

Mouse and Butterfly watching Beaver's cross country meet.  I will not be taking them to anymore by myself, why too stressful!  Badger almost ran into the course while the runners where running. 

The girls did the flower arranging, the jar is my apple cider/science project. 

Four quart sized jars of pickled veggies. Three are me standard refrigerator pickles and the last I canned to see how it affects the texture of the veggies.  The other three jars are salsa. 

This was supposed to be my photo for the yarn along.  I have made a bit of progress since them. 

This has been a running around like a chicken with it's head cut off kind of week and I think next week might be worse.  I have this can of paint for the bedroom and my husband will be gone.  He hates the smell of paint.  Wouldn't it be a nice surprise?  It is a totally insane plan but.... maybe.


  1. Wow -- you have had so much going on! Everything looks great. Hugs to you.

  2. Thanks! it was one whirlwind week. I wrote a list of what I want to do this week, hopefully that will keep me on track.
