Tuesday Time to Tackle: A Bunch of LIttle, Neglected Chores

A friend once told me that she didn't blog because she didn't think she had much to blog about.  Today is one of those days for me; I'm getting miscellaneous chores done, but nothing that really deserves a tutorial.

So, what have I been doing lately?  Besides the everyday chores of dishes and laundry, I've tackled a few other mundane tasks.

Let's just say my sock drawer is finally organized.  Lost mates have been found, and socks with holes have been tossed.  I fleetingly thought to take a photo, but then my more rational self thought, "You've got to be kidding!" 

I stamped and mailed out thank you cards for those who helped with our church women's conference.

I practiced playing the songs the choir will be singing at the upcoming stake conference.

I moved the pile of papers that had accumulated on top of the piano.  (I still need to actually go through them, toss, or file.)

I helped amazon.com stay in business.  Birthday season is drawing to a close here--three more birthdays in the next month.   

I organized the Relief Society closet at church.  I'm pretty sure we are set on paper goods.  :-)

My to-do list is not complete, though, so I'm going to stop blogging and start doing.  First up?  Sewing one of Drexel's straps back on his guide dog puppy vest.  It came undone today in the car.  

What have you been doing today?

Thanks for variety to help spice up daily life.

  3. How funny, I cleaned out my sock bin as well, after years and years of accumulating them. Now I just want to figure out what to do with each type that are still technically good but not worn but not good enough to donate.

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
