Right... DH has taken the kids out so I can work on an article, and I decided to do 10-minute cleanups/housework in between writing stints.
-Started a load of washing, put away tons of DD's clothes, general tidying
Second 10 (well, 15ish):
-Made panna cotta
-Put washing in dryer, put new load on
-Poured panna cotta into glasses to set
-Did a hasty clean-out of the chicken's cage
Hi smokering. I hope both your cleaning and writing were successful.
Hi *bejeweled*! I hope you were able to garden with your daughter. That's such a special thing to share.
I've been working in the boys' toy room and have gotten it mostly done. I'll be giving away several items. Beyond that, I've cooked breakfast and lunch and have washed one load of diapers, but nothing else. Still, the toy room has needed my attention for weeks.
Hi everyone! Saturday morning here, but DH has to work so it feels like just another day.
Thanks Poetry, I'm feeling better.
Done so far:
stripped sheets off DDs bed
put in wash
collected dirty laundry
hung out gym gear
go to gym? really need to get back into exercising!
vacuum DD's room under bed
dust DD's room thoroughly while she is away at camp
watch craft video...maybe even do something creative
take DS to park
try to relax, that's a hard one
shined the sink
made tea for myself (drunk in the mug that reminds me that i'm not going to give in to MIL and her awful behavior = hoping to make it a daily habit and positive affirmation thing !!!)
did what little washing up there was
wiped the table completely (including the vertical sides of the plastified tablecloth, where sticky leaks tend to be ignored .... managed not to have meals on that table yesterday so that was needed ... the rest of my household has NO inckling that this can and must be cleaned too ....)
am off to clean the toilet
then wipe the inside of the sink and of the bath
hopefully the floors will get tackled today too ....
feeling a bit better about "more control over chaos" .... but could have done with a little more sleep .... why do kids forget to whisper when they get up before 6:30 am ??????? hope my bad mood will recede during the morning ....
Whew - the wedding is over! All went well and I'm glad the stress and craziness is behind us... just in time for the stress and craziness of back-to-school.
Now back to reality... today I plan to:
-go for a run
-do the dishes I left from dinner last night
-scoop cat box
-tidy up the downstairs
-wash & put away a load of laundry
-make a trip to Target to get the kids' school supplies & thank-you cards
-work on finding a sitter for Friday
-drop off flowers to my sister
Enjoy your day!

Right; after mooching around for most of the day, I have decided to be productive; and if I can only do that 15 minutes at a time, well, so be it.
-General tidying of desk, table and floor - threw out some old flowers
-Started planting out punnet of red onion seedlings
-Finished red onion seedlings, planted row of lettuces, unloaded dishwasher, loaded it back up, entered discount club thingy
-DD woke up; went on a walk with her around the orchard to get some lemons
-Made sultana loaf with DD, cleaned the kitchen a bit
-Copied out two recipes, then the baby woke up and it all went to heck. :p
-Started rolling out pizza dough
Right. Now I've rolled out eight pizzas, and should have just enough time to make the toppings, plait DD's hair and do some more cleaning before the in-laws arrive for dinner.
A good afternoon. Thank you all. :p
