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.

Never Give Up Hope

Twenty-three years ago, a beautiful little girl was born. From the get-go, she was sweet, sensitive, and rather shy. She has grown into a young woman of whom I am so proud. She has worked hard to overcome challenges, and recently told me she is trying to face her fears, and asked me if I would write her story and share it here on the blog, in hopes she can inspire others through their own struggles. Although I offered to publish an auto-biographical piece for her, she wanted me to write her story from my perspective. At her request, and with her approval of this post, I share the following:
The phone rang, and the social worker on the other end informed me that a baby girl had been born 10 weeks early and drug-exposed. She wasn't ready to be released from the medical facility where she was currently staying, but would we be interested in being her foster-to-adopt parents? Of course! When John and I filled out our paperwork, we indicated that we were comfortable with a premature bab…

Six Sentence Story: Burst

The moment the church organist started playing the introduction to the hymn, the precocious toddler girl stood up on the pew. Music just moved her, and she was doubly excited when she realized she recognized the tune. Though everyone around her was opening a hymnal and finding the right page, that was unnecessary for her. 
First of all, she couldn't read, but second, even if she could read, she didn't need the words; they were etched into her memory. Finally, the organist finished the introduction and the chorister signaled the congregation to begin, but while the rest of the church-goers sang, "Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing," the sweet little girl belted out, "Go tell Aunt Rhody." By the time she got to the line about the old grey goose being dead, all decorum was lost as those around her burst out laughing.

Six Sentence Story: Release

Her small brow furrowed in concentration as she carefully placed the wriggling worm on the little hook. 

"Ready, Daddy!" she called, and Daddy came over and helped her cast the line into the lake. To the amazement of both of them, soon the bobber took a dip into the water. Daddy talked her through reeling the keeper-sized fish onto the shore.

"I'll name him Lucky, because he is lucky I caught him!" she proudly announced.

Lucky's luck ran out, though, when he realized this wasn't going to be a catch-and-release situation.
