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: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Dad's Influence Edition

Infant-me, sitting on the wood floor, looks up at my dad, who is sitting on a brown sofa and smiling down to me Here in the United States, it is Father's Day weekend. I did not realize until recently that Father's Day was not officially made a holiday until 1972. 1972! Now, while I realize that many people consider 1972 eons ago, I do not. I'm glad that fathers have a day of recognition now, because they surely deserve acknowledgement.  I thought for this week's Ten Things of Thankful post, I would list ten lessons I'm thankful my dad taught me. My dad is a teacher. Not only did he impart his knowledge to countless junior high aged kids throughout his career, he taught--and still teaches--my siblings and me. He is not a preachy teacher; he's a humble man whose lessons I feel like I learned through osmosis. When he would get home from work, we'd all sit down as a family for supper. Often, our phone would ring, and on the other end of the line would be a paren

Ten Things of Thankful: Summer Strawberries and Procrastinated Projects

A brilliantly-colored dark pink and purple fuchsia blossom You would think that by the time a person reaches my age, she would not be surprised by the passing of time, yet I find myself nearly constantly amazed that a certain amount of time has passed--whether that be a week, month, year, or couple of decades. Earlier this year, I planted a garden. Yesterday I harvested my first strawberry. Earlier this year, I also planted fuchsia starts, and now the flowers are blooming. How is that possible? (And why am I surprised?) Sometime around the turn of the century (and it still seems strange to use that phrase about the year 2000), we bought a circa 1935 dresser. It needed some TLC, but had a cool curvy front. This past week, I finally got around to applying some Restor-A-Finish and Feed-N-Wax, and now the dresser still looks old, but not dilapidated. I still need to apply some hide glue to some loose pieces, but I'm counting progress as a win. For as long as I can remember, I've be
