To-do list

Looks doable.


Already adding to it…


As the day wore on, the list changed.

Mr. Aitch and I have waffles every Sunday.  I used to buy a mix but now make my own.  I just mix up several batches of the dry ingredients and store it in a container with the rest of the recipe taped to the side.


After a shower emergency (more on that another day) last month, I have to repaint the repair.


When we cleaned out the garage earlier this summer these pots “were” scrubbed.  They have been sitting here for way too long so they need washed again before going back into the garage.


That big black thing on the left was the collar for the septic tank that was removed in June.  It was buried up to the top for easy access clean-out for the septic tank.  Now that we don’t need the collar anymore I want to fill it with soil and transplant my mint so it doesn’t take over the yard.  It won’t stay there but I’m just not sure where to put it.


Mr. Aitch can’t weed-whack around all that.


Yes.  Rain water and grass clippings in that tub.  Gross!


Again from the garage cleanup: Hardware cloth/mesh and tomato cages.  Two of the three tomato plants don’t need any additional support from the cages and the third one is a monster and too unwieldy to get a cage around it now.



Mr. Aitch said four little words to me and I am on it!  Today!!

What did he say?

This will attract snakes.  It was the last word that got me.  Snakes.


In the 22 years we’ve lived here, I’ve only seen three snakes.  That’s pretty good for living in a rural area.  God has a purpose for all creatures but I’m not a fan of snakes and I certainly don’t want them close to the house.


These have to go NOW so the grass/weeds can be cut down.

What I really want to do is sew and start making a box bag.

Do you make to-do lists?

Do you follow them?

Did I cross off everything on my to-do list?

  1. I do make lists, they help me remember what it was I meant to do. 🙂 And I usually follow them, although they don’t all get done in the day I made the list! However, if one involved clearing something up to avoid snakes, I would do that first. So I think you got a lot of your list done. And I hope, got some sewing time at the end of the day!

  2. I do make lists… sometimes. I do feel good when I can cross something off my list. My issues are….I’m a lump. I think about doing it…say today….but then I just sit around and tell.myself “oh I can do it tomorrow,”. I’m a slug.

    • You are not a lump OR a slug. I have to set a deadline or it doesn’t get done. Start small, like cleaning out a drawer. Now if you come for a visit, I will HAVE to clean up the guest room… Then you can help me tackle our walk-in closet or the basement. Deal?


  3. I make lists, but most of the time I never keep to them! Always a grocery list, and mostly stick to it. As to dinner, I have gotten out of the habit of making a plan, but in a few months we will be living with my sister while we house hunt/build, and I am sure I will be back on a plan to keep track of when the three of us adults will be all in attendance. The deal is I cook while we live there, so it’s all on me. At least I won’t have to try to learn how to cook for less people, we went from 4 to 3, and now just the 2 of us until we move. That’s the hardest, cooking smaller portions.
