Would scrubbing mud out of a 6 year old's clothes count as a workout? It did take 30 minutes and a lot of baking soda and vinegar (not together!) and I felt like I received a good arm workout, not to mention you can now tell the shorts were pink and white.

On the 19th I did some major re-arranging in my home, and cleaned up the music corner...only to find that my piano had some really badly out of tune keys. That will get fixed next Friday fro probably about $150 *sigh*. But I love the new setup in my house!

Today when I get home I have to tackle the garden again. Weeds and small dogs can be really inconsiderate about injuries and the like. I'm going to try and fight my way to the rhubarb plant, and see if there's anything left to harvest.

Today, ready or not, I have to get some serious heavy lifting-type work done. I have a rubber plant that threatens to take over the place if I don't get it moved and under control.

I've been semi-offline for a couple of weeks now. Just checking in to say I put in minimal time on my garden, but have been working hard on my house plants. I've got a sweet pepper plant that's about to produce at least 3 peppers (probably small, due to the size of the plant).

Yes, it would. Sorry, I forgot we had a question hanging in the air here. I'm averaging 4 days a week now, but need to be working on my Runic studies every evening right now. I also have the reading for my work with my new practice partner and my Druidic research that I need to step up with.

Lets go for half an hour 7 days a week.

I would love a challenge for magickal studies! I'm being pretty consistent with my Runic work, but have barely touched the Druidic work.

In spite of my determination to make Sunday about my Druidic studies, I spent most of the day in house cleaning, re-potting plants, and weeding the garden.

Oh well, maybe this afternoon, when I'm done with work...

We had a beautiful weekend, and Monday was nice too. But now we're back to rain. It's too soggy to pick up the doggy gifts in the garden, so I'm tending the houseplants today.

Today I'm going to bake bread and blackberry pie, put in at least 2 hours in my poor overgrown garden, sweep, vacuum, dust, groom the dog, water the plants.

I'd better get going!

Toodles!

Thanks for the reminder! I don't think I logged anything for yesterday, and I got a lot done!

Bright Blessings on this rainy Monday. The plants and water fowl in Southcentral Alaska are having a wonderful summer.

I've been working and logging time, but I haven't been posting much. Hope everyone is having a great summer!

I'm off through Palin-Land again. Visiting my ailing sis-in-law, and gifting her with a cauldron and a pendulum.

Not sure if I'll get much work done on my own house today, but if they need something done, I'll probably be working at my brother's house.

I put in an extra hour on my house today (raining again), and I still can't get to my piano. but the sewing machine is almost dug out and ready to use. Chances are, by the time I finally crawl into bed I will have put in another half hour.

Thanks! You too.

The weeks of drizzle and grey skies are a bit annoying, but May and June were too dry. The sunshine was nice, but we were getting too many forest fires. And my peony bush has less than half the flowers it had last year.

I have been trying to do a little of this and rest a little of that and rest my back is still hurty. I am getting a bit frustrated.
I wish we would get a bit of rain down here .LOL
Have a great day

Hey awesome lady! I'm so glad you feeling better! I can't really imagine a garden big enough for water plants *sigh*. My brother has one though. His garden is very wild and forest-glennish looking, and he has a little pond with flowers that I don't recognize.

Yesterday I finally got out to my garden during a break in the rain. I spent about 2 hours weeding. I'll count 45 minutes as extra.

I think that chick is scary, and I live here!
I'm not worried. It was actually kind of nice for a change just to decide not to do anything about it for a couple of days, and run off to play.
I'm back now. Just another 1/2 hour of work from home, and then I'll get some serious housework done before dinner.

I am tired tonight! I put in 6 hours of holiday time for work, and then went for a 15 mile bike ride. I wish that didn't tire me so much; I used to go on 100 k bike tours. I guess I'll be back up there someday.

Tomorrow I'm off through Palin-land to visit my brother and sis-in-law.

Who knows? I may not get any housework done at all today or tomorrow. I'll be back on top of it by the weekend.

Wow! Silverwitch! You got gold! I got silver. I'm about to snuggle down with little white fluff dog and my metaphysical studies for a while. Then I will do huge amounts of housework.

I went cycling in the rain, but I am not gardening in it. The plants can take care of themselves today.

I'm just about to put in an hour on my garden. I'll count that as normal plus 30 extra, because it's been a few days since I've beeen out there. I've been so busy setting up my home office, and sorting out schedules and the like that I've hardly done any housework at all this week.

We get northern lights here in the winter at least a couple of times a year. I spent 2 years going to college in Fairbanks, and there you could see a pretty good display pretty much every night all winter long. We had this lake shore we liked to go to and just watch them. Of course that far north it's generally colder than -40 from early Nov. to mid March.

LOL It has been super hot here this year LOL Bichons are so cute. I used to work for a groomer and we would get a lot of them in.
Do you get the northern lights where you are? I would love to see them once in my life. We always talk about traveling up there to see Alaska but so far have not made it, My parents are elder and in Florida so we go there to visit for the time being.
I did not get a whole lot done yesterday the carpets and I did some weeds. Then I just vegged inside my back has been acting up
Okay off to work with me Have a great day :)

I've been to New Mexico. It is beautiful there! And very hot. Alaska is all about that light/dark thing, even on the southern coast where I live. In the summer I love it, and in the winter I get out at midday as often as possible. It isn't like on the north coast, where the sun rises in the spring and sets in the fall, I really couldn't handle that either. When my joints still let me ski I loved the winter best of all. Nighttime Alaska in mid winter is the most magical thing of all!

I adore Corgis! They're so sweet! I have a Bichon Frize. I'd like to get another one, partially because I just would, and partially because my girl is getting older and a playmate would help keep her healthy longer.

Anyway, I have stalled long enough. I'm off to do loads of extra minutes of housework today.

Brightest Blessings!

I am in New Mexico It is very arid here. I have heard many things about Alaska most of them are good. Not sure I could do the dark/light thing they have in places though LOL I love the sun.

Been super busy out side in the garden. :) One of these days I will be done building it and will need a new project LOL
Think this morning I am going to wash my bedroom carpet. My work canceled and it needs to be done one of the corgi boyz barfed in there BAD DOG LOL
Have a great day :)

Well, I guess I can't count the 2 hours I spent working overtime from home today, so I'd best get off my nice soft executive chair that I got FOR FREE! with my computer equipment the other day. More about that in another post...and actually get some housework done.

I'm sorry it's been so hot there. Where are you anyway?

It's been raining since last night, in that coastal Alaskan way, where it stays grey for days and occasionally spits water at us. People grumble about the weather around here, but I grew up with it. The weather is just the weather; if you let it stop you from doing the things you want to do, you never do any of them. I remember being stationed in MD though, it got terribly hot. I didn't like that at all.

Okay, a few more huddles and messages, and then I'm off to meet my challenge for the day.

Hugs!

I wish I had a stack of books it would mean I was reading them. I started getting magazines and now read them instead of books ??? How dumb is that. I am letting them lapse.
I got out in the garden early today .Got all that lava rock laid out before it got too hot and now I am safely inside LOL It is already 101* Will get out there later again once it cools off.
I wound up having to work yesterday after all :( but money is helpful.
Okay here I go sorry you lost your cubicle ..Have a great day !

It kind of looks like the groomer kept half of my dog. I just know there was more of her there this morning. But she sure does look more comfortable. I think she deliberately fights me because she likes her spa day. She just gets so excited when I take her to the vet.emoticon

Anyway, it's been an emotionally taxing day at work. I finished moving all of my stuff out of my comfy and private cubicle, which won't even exist anymore by this time next week.

I need a little garden time this evening. I also need to finish the laundry, and clean up all the books lying in front of the bookcase in my room (don't ask, I'm not sure, but every couple of months the stack exceeds 5" deep and it's time to do something about it).

I hope your donkeys got their brushing. I did wimp out this weekend, but plan to make up for it next weekend. It should still be light enough for it.

Little white fluff dog gets professionally groomed tomorrow. I try to groom her myself, but she's pretty determined not to get groomed.

Anyway, today is beautiful and sunny. I will be putting in all kinds of time on my garden, and taking a bike ride this evening. Haven't found the right container for my vegetable garden yet, but I'm still looking. This kind of project gets interesting when you don't have any money to throw at it.

It's cloudy and windy, and the rain comes in little fits and starts. The temperature is in the mid 50s. I mostly worked in the house today, although I did go to the farmer's market. I put in a good extra 30 minutes sorting out paperwork.

tonight is the night I was planning to take my annual midnight bike ride. I'm tempted to wimp out.

I haven't posted here in a few days. I didn't do work on Tuesday, I got a 2 hour therapeutic massage. Mmmmmmmm! emoticon

Wednesday I ran errands for over an hour after work, so didn't get anything done around the house then either.

Tonight, I have to finish reconciling my checkbook, repot my spider plant, and clean the upstairs bathroom. The rain clouds are finally breaking up, so if I feel up to it I'll need to do some weeding too.

Wow! You two have been so busy! I'd love to see your mini donkeys! They do sound cute.

Yesterday we did manage to get the bike out of the garden, and cleaned up, and then my son decided he couldn't part with it. He wants to give up the newer bike instead. emoticonemoticonemoticon I'm afraid I have to agree with him. The older bike is better suited to his needs.

I got the garden as weeded as I need it to be at this stage, got the stone circle all cleaned up and ready for Solstice, am ready to put in a container vegetable garden (I hope!), have finally gotten all the paperwork and stuff cleaned off the dining table for the first time since I was sick 5 years ago, finished rolling all the pennies in my coin jar; $6 worth, WooHoo!, am finishing up the last of the laundry for the weekend.

My right ankle is huge tonight. I'm going to fold all the laundry I just finished washing, and ice my ankle in bed.

I would say that counts as at least an extra 30 minutes. Well done! I walked the Women's Run, came home and got right on my bike to ride to the farmer's market. I'm resting and hanging out on the computer before starting in on my yard work. Got to see if I can somehow get the old bike into the back of my little Geo Tracker and haul it off to the consignment store before I can continue with yard work.

I put in just 30 minutes on my garden after work for Thursday. Hoping to get in a little more time for Friday. I've got most of the standing stones cleaned off now. It's a small circle using rocks just barely small enough for me to carry comfortably by myself, and the iris towers over them. This is the first year my iris has bloomed. It is perfect! Even in my tiny garden it makes the stone circle semi hidden, and very private.
