October friday

it’s Friday!  It always seems so long getting here, and I am so tired by the time it arrives but I still love Fridays and book them too full.


As the sun is supposed to shine, I want to focus on the outside chores.

Need to finish putting the pool away.  Can you believe it has rained every day that I have been home since I pulled the plug on it?  Need a dry day to finish the job.

Set the planter box and then get it filled with dirt.  I want the compost and manure well settled by next spring when I put the asparagus in it.  (Did I tell you the Fedco “tree” book came – omg I want it all!)

Put away the umbrella and lightweight chairs for the winter

Move the snowblower up to the top of the driveway

Clean out the raised beds – except the marigolds – they are blooming their fool heads off still.  Amazingly cheerful this year, not sure what I did differently, but I love having them. So they can stay until they quit.

Pull some weeds, work some soil.  Not sure how much of that I will get done, but there is plenty to do.  It feels a little early to bury the rose-bush, but that has to be on my list in the next few weeks, I guess.

Inside chores –

laundry, of course.

Maybe clean the kitchen.

Maybe play with card making in the craft room.


PO – mail college freshmen their holiday packages, get the mail

Hardware store – oooh, I love going there.  Ours is the best.  I need a hook for the screen door and dirt for the planter boxes.  But what will I really get?  Only time will tell.

Grocery store – ugh, sigh.  Gotta do it.  Even though we are dieting seriously, we still need to have SOMETHING to eat.

So I wonder what I will REALLY get done?

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
