Going to start posting my daily list here. I am working on finishing up yesterday's list. I make a list and then I use the dice roller to make the order. I work about 15 minutes at a time on each area as it comes up. Sometimes an area comes up several times...and if I have already finished it, I change it to "choice"...where I work on whatever I feel like doing at the time, or if I am really getting tired, I may just take a few extra minutes to rest.
I have both inside and outside work to do. Yesterday a lot of outside work came up, and I was really worn out by the heat. I only got four inside areas worked on, in addition to the outside. I've already gotten started this morning. First thing I did was do some maintenance work in my water garden.
I will have to figure out how to do those check boxes. Also I have to take out time to cook....promised my husband some chicken gumbo. Nice meal for a hot day. ;D I will work a little in the bedroom and then go start cooking.
Email/FB or choice....email and more dishes...done
That's it for today. Will make a new list for tomorrow.
I made a list and used dice roller to set the order. I am working on re-arranging my kitchen and washing and putting away a lot of stuff that got covered in sawdust during remodeling.
Outside I have "a pile of junk" that has haunted me for years. Yes...years. Each time I work on it, I will remove at least 15 items and deal with them. It is flower pots and odds and ends....goodness only knows, but I have dreaded tackling that "pile of junk" for way too long.
Here are the 15 items I hope to tackle starting first thing in the morning:
AARRGGH!! My husband came home, fixed lunch...got so sleepy, I had to take a nap. Back at it now...3:20 pm
6. Food Processors I ended up with two mini food processors...must remember to give one to my daughter. When I was putting them away, I realized I have a big one too....and I don't remember getting it or anything about it.
7. Hall 8. Dining room
There is a heat index of 109* right now. I don't know if I am up to going outside to do my next task. 9. Outside 10. Pile of junk 11. Pile of junk 12. Dining room 13. Living room 14. Kitchen 15. Porch
Okay, it's after 8 a.m. here and I have my animals fed.....time to start on my list.....hope to get a lot done today!
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Finished for today. Going to make out my list for tomorrow and get ready to tackle it again. I am proudest of getting two good swipes at the "pile of junk." I don't know why I have dreaded that for so long. It feels good to get it taken care of.
I'm so psyched up to get to work tomorrow....I already have my list made out. I don't know where the burst of energy has come from, but I am not going to complain....I'm going to go with the flow as long as it lasts!

Up and at 'em.
I didn't get as much done as I wanted to. This morning my husband decided to wash the truck and I ended up helping him, and being out in the heat for so long kind of zapped my energy and enthusiasm, but I got several things done....and tomorrow is another day.
Thank you, Ally. I come in and sit down between jobs. It is hot outside...makes it a little hard to get back up and go out. I've got two more outside jobs to do and then some inside ones. Going to go out now and knock them out.
I didn't get much done today. The first four jobs were outside and though I finished them, I was pretty well melted by then. I also fell this morning....and I am stiff and sore from that. (I have some wild hogs and one of the sows weighs about 500 lb. and she crowded me and I fell into the feed trough and right in front of another sow that is very moody. I am really lucky the second one didn't decide to have me for breakfast, but she waited patiently for me to get out of the way.)
Here is my list for tomorrow. I kept rolling the same numbers over and over and some of the jobs...like pantry and hall won't take but a few minutes and the outside jobs kept coming up, and I thought I had enough of those, especially since I am still working on the "pile of junk". It will be so great to have that taken care of though!
1. Outside 2. Pantry 3. Dishes
Slow start today....no caffeine. Out of Pepsi and bottled water. We don't drink the well water here...need a new well. My husband came home and brought Pepsi and water....so now I feel a little better. Hope to get caught up. If not, will just resume this list tomorrow, or until I finish it!
4. Hall 5. Pile of junk 6. Outside 7. Porch 8. Outside...watered plants 9. Pile of junk 10. Kitchen 11. Living room 12. Shelf under Island 13. Pile of junk 14. Dining room
August 2nd....Time to get started. Kind of dragging around this morning.
*************************** I was able to knock out some of the outside jobs this evening when it had cooled off a little.
I managed to get a little done in several of my areas. Still didn't get that shelf from the other house....this is my list for tomorrow....Pantry is first again.
1. Pantry 2. Porch 3. Living room 4. Bedroom 5. Pile of Junk 6. Dishes 7. Pile of Junk 8. Outside 9. Watergarden 10. Outside 11. Pile of Junk 12. Dishes
Ready to get started.
Again, my husband has gone to have coffee, so have to wait until he is back to fix the pantry...move the shelf. So I will start with the front porch.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ My husband came home from coffee, but before I could get him collared for moving the shelf for the pantry, he started mowing the pasture. I walked out there to take him some water....thought I'd die before I made it back. So hot today. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Kitchen didn't even make my list today, but I started a big job in the kitchen....emptying out the bottom cabinets, cleaning and putting stuff back. There is sawdust an inch deep in there and everything coated in sawdust. It won't be hard washing things, but time consuming. I am going to do the bottom left side today and will work on the middle and the right side tomorrow and the next day. Still haven't gone in the other house to get the shelf. I have to admit...it is because I don't want to look at the mess in there. I am going to do it before the day is over though. The prospect of going in there is worse than the actuality.........or at least I am hoping. I can see a big difference in everything in this house...well, except the sun porch, which is full of stuff and the back room which has become more of a storage spot for tools. Dreading those, but they can wait. I will work on the sun porch a little at a time.
