Saturday, there is a lot left on that list...

     I really worked hard yesterday, or so my fitbit said I did.  Although I was not wiped out exhausted.  I just kept plugging along at the list and there is still so much left to do.  Mostly cleaning.  Which I would like to get done today if possible. I don't want to be running like a sweaty mess all afternoon tomorrow.

     I had another wedding dress picked up and will start on a new one on Monday which will need to be picked up on Tuesday so I already know what the beginning of the week will hold.  I think I have completed the pile, although a set of Army dress blues came in Friday.  It is nice to have the shop down to wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses, and  not have piles of things all over.

     I do have to get valances made for my neighbor soon and I hate making curtains.

     Lil sis and I did a mock up of the flowers for the wedding I am doing today.  I left it at her house and we will go over to the church about noon and get it set up.  At first she refused to help me,but I knew she would change her mind.  I think she really likes to boss me and she loves to do this kind of work.  Although she will hold it against me forever.:)  Sisters!

     I have to say I am a little ashamed of the back yard as the patios are so weedy, and it needs love but I have not had the time to pay attention to it.  I barely have time to get the produce out of the garden.

     I was happy to get both of the upstairs beds stripped and remade yesterday and the linens washed and dried on the fence. But most of the house work remains to be done.

     Our new son-in-law is color blind and we have gone together as a family to get him the colorblind glasses.  So we are celebrating his birthday tomorrow.  I am making ribs, potatoes, fried squash,beach bread and his mom is bringing a cheesecake.  I wish the back yard looked better but oh well I have been busy.

     I do need to get some of the house cleaned up. So before I go and get Lil sis, I am going to clean myself up.(makeup/hair)  Then try and get the master bath and bedroom done and also the guest bath.  Then I can move down the hall into the front room.  That will just leave the family room which won't take more than a few minutes and the kitchen for tomorrow.  Depending on how long it takes to do the flowers I may have time do to more work before the reception starts.  But I know it will be a very late night with tear down and I am sure Hubs and I will help.

     It will be nice to have this off my to do list so I can enjoy the rest of August.  I really want to get out and get some huckleberries picked, maybe the end of the week next week if I can get all the wedding dresses at least to the first fitting.

What are you going to do with your weekend?  Any plans?

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.



  1. Oh wow - I would love to see a picture of your SIL when he first puts those glasses on - how awesome!!!
    Slow down, lady, I get exhausted reading all you are doing in a day!
    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I have already spent 3 hours in the garage cleaning/clearing out, organizing and getting ready for my stockpile sale for early September.
    I'll do a couple of hours upstairs in a bit putting stuff away now that the carpeting is in Hubs' room. Then the hallway gets put back together. I feel like Humpty Dumpty today. lolz

    1. So you are sitting on a wall with all the kings horses or all the kings men?

  3. You sure are a master of many trades. I don't know how you do half of it.
    I did all the laundry and changed out all the bedding after it came off the line. That will sure fill good tonight.

    Picked some garden, colored my hair and porch sat for a while. Haven't done that in a long while.
    Have a great weekend. Oh, also, what a great gift for your SIL!!!!

  4. Morning Kim ... its Sunday morning here. I have been & shifted the neighbors stock & fed their pets as they are away in the U.K. for a month. I am hoping to get in the garden today as the sun is shining for a wonderful change! I saw a funny thing about fitbits .... it said "My Gosh I am exhausted today - my fitbit says I did 17 steps!!". Have a lovely day Kim - I feel exhausted just reading about all that you achieve. xx

    1. I am over tired right now but feel like the worst of the summer is over.

  5. If I lived your life, I would be dead already.

  6. Well, I made pumpkin bread for the kid to take with her, helped with the last of the packing, and we loaded the truck. Now, hopefully a fe hours of sleep before hitting the road very early tomorrow morning. I think your list though is more exhausting than what I am doing.

  7. Yes, there is still a little bit of August left to enjoy.

  8. made more since to finish the work before the makeup LOL.
    Down today meds fighting each other so Doc put a hold on finishing up the diverticulitis ones. I have a loose schedule for work in Sept but this last week of Aug is what ever I am feeling up to. Have 2 funerals to go to, one a younger cousin that had heart failure and kidney failure for years, the other a good childhood friend and classmate the die in car wreck due to his OVI...such a waste and most likely thought he was fine enough to drive. Off to rest some more. Tomorrow is another day

  9. I am sorry for your loss and I hope you can get over your illness.
