Tuesday, Progress of some sort

     So we are fast approaching the end of April and all the bills are paid.  I am making progress on the debt and I have enough money to replace my tires!  The next debt to conquer should be the Studio lock loan.  This needs to be gone asap.  I will throw myself at this bugger with all my worth.

     Every time I make a house payment I am paying myself over $1000.00. I look at it as a savings account now.  It is going down quickly.  As long as I can keep Murphy at bay I can work hard to get where I am going.  Where am I going?  Not sure but I am going to find out....

     It is cold and rainy here.  Surprise!  I have plenty to do and must teach 4 hours tonight.  Need to finish up a wedding dress, and get a pile of other things done in the shop.

    Yesterday, some friends of ours stopped by that had been to their place in California, they brought us oranges, grapefruit and lemons.  So mom wanted lemon pie.  I knew once she got the idea in her head I would never get her to leave me alone.  So I pulled two crusts out of the freezer and threw together a couple of lemon pies.  Fabulous!  It made eating leftovers okay for mom.  She does not eat leftovers well.

     The eye doctor said I was at 80% and that was as good as it gets for me, I can see great and the new eye drops have done their work.  Seven eye surgeries is enough for one body. Don't you think?

     Hubs and I went to Home Depot and purchased a new trimmer for the yard as ours is defunct. I also picked up several things off the dead and dying rack.  All perennials for an area of our garden/ yard that will not grow veggies do to the light and the wisteria. I also bought 20 small bricks to put around the new spot.  I was able to get outside for a few minutes while I was waiting for crusts and meringue to cook.

    You can accomplish this is 20 minutes.  Saw off 2 large branches and haul them to the dump pile. Open a bag of mulch and spread it and re weed the strawberry bed.  That is all the time I got outside between rain drops and phone calls and customers and.....


     The &^%$ chickens have dug under their coop again, so now I will have to crawl through the poop and see if I can fix the spot.  They start to lay under the house and then critters dig under and have a meal.  We need to rebuild the coop and that is on Hub's to do list.  The weather has been so bad it is hard to get things done.

     Well I have fed the mother, and the shop is waiting.  No excuses, I am off.

Have a great and productive day!

  1. You go girl! Way to go go on the tires - those buggers can get expensive.

    You made my mouth water with the lemon pie, but I want lemon squares. No room to bake though - put it on my list!

    1. If I make lemon squares I will eat the whole pan, with a pie I have some self control, well not much as both are gone.

  2. I think I am very glad we don't have to deal with chickens. I have enough figurative $%*! in my life without having to crawl through the literal stuff.
    And for the record, you get a lot more done in 20 minutes than I do!

  3. Anne,
    My chickens cannot dig under anything, although Dominique gives it a good shot. Laying hog wire on the ground under the edges of the pen keeps anything from digging in or out at my house.

  4. I miss having chickens. While they were work, they were also a lot of fun.
