A Productive Day

Monday, October 08, 2012



The reason I bought the cabinet is Kira, my 2 year old great granddaughter.

Today, I got the front and both sides of the yard mowed and one swatch around the back. Then I put out the bird feeders and put seed in them and picked up the hose. I still have to put the suet cakes out, plant the mums, do the weed whacking, and cover the faucet.

I got 2 loads of heavy laundry washed and hung out, one more ready to hang out in the morning, and one more to do.

Then put the outside Halloween decorations up----pumpkin lights, ghost light, and skeleton in the tree.

I got a paper typed and printed for TOPS. Still have books to look up for the church library.

Tomorrow I will hang out the one load of laundry in the morning. Tomorrow afternoon/evening I will be going to the casinos with one of my daughters. We get lots of free play on Tuesday.

Time to go and pay a bill before I get a late charge........lol

Not Enough To Do????????????

Sunday, October 07, 2012



Between mowing and weed whacking almost 2 acres, mulching, laundry, volunteer work, I guess I thought I needed something to do so while at Lowe's yesterday, I bought 2 more large mum plants. I have one large tire that needs more in it and one that just needs something in it.

Also, I bought another large bird feeder. This one has a suet cage on each end. After I get the front mowed again (hopefully tomorrow), I will be putting out all the feeders and filling them. Tomorrow and Wednesday (weather permitting), I should be out picking up the dried/dead grass/weeds to finish mulching the roses.

Then it's off to trim the trees, pick up the hoses, and cover the outside faucet for the winter.

To add to the melee, I bought a big cabinet for my kitchen that I will be picking up Thursday. Sometime this month, Becka and Kira (granddaughter and great granddaughter) will be returning from Michigan. Kira will be 2 in December and all most of my kitchen stuff is on a shelf in the corner so I wanted to get this stuff behind a door instead of fussing at her to keep out. I can put my good dishes, appliances, dish towels, and casserole dishes in this cupboard and if necessary we can fix the doors so she can't open them. If this cabinet works out well, I may get one for my sewing room so I can get my things all in one place.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it...........hehehe

    I always felt better getting things out of sight and reach myself, too. I wouldn't mind some new cabinets...

    I seemed to be filled with ambition this morning. At least, for me. I'm cleaning closets and rooms. I hope I get it done before I run out of motivation. You and your two acres are too inspiring. emoticon

Wonderful Thing Happened Today.....and also not so good, too

Thursday, October 04, 2012



An amazing thing happened today-----well not so amazing for God--amazing for me..

At our TOPS meetings, we have what is called a penny board, which is 99 pennies taped on different squares. If we choose to participate, we pull off a penny and pay that amount. We can buy as many as we wish. After all the pennies are sold, we have a drawing. Someone draws a number and whoever bought that number gets $25 and $25 goes into our general fund. I was helping with the board and told the other lady that if God chose to have my number drawn the money would go to my daughter. Well, they drew my number.....so now I have $25 to help my daughter, Valerie, with gas for school or what ever she needs......Praise and thanks to the Lord for granting this wish. This is the daughter on the prayer list who is dealing with a lot of family issues right now. So in your prayers please add a BIG thank you to God for allowing me to do this for Valerie.

Now for the not so good news....I was up 6/10 pound at weigh in this morning.

    WHAT A GREAT IDEA! AND TO BE SO GENEROUS TO YOUR DAUGHTER TOO. WHAT A MOM! THEY HAVE T.O.P.S. GROUPS HERE TOO, BUT NONE CLOSE BY ME. HAVE YOU FOUND IT TO BE A HELP TO YOU? I BELONGED TO ONE IN WISCONSIN ABOUT A MILLION YEARS AGO AND LOVED IT - NOT JUST FOR THE WEIGHT LOSS, BUT I MADE SOME REALLY GOOD FRIENDS.

    Love the good thing you are going to be able to do...

Our weight can vary as much as three pounds due to different issues...your 6/10 is disheartening, but not a deal breaker...sometimes when something like that happened to me one week, I would have a fantastic weigh in the next week...

    I agree with Beltonwalker on the 6/10 lb. Or maybe it was all that money in your pocket. Glad you can help your daughter. God is good, isn't He?

    Congratulations on winning the money to help your daughter. Don't worry about that 6/10's of a pound....it will go away...could be muscle rather than fat! Have a good evening.
