Thirteen Things I Did Today

I already posted today, but it is Thursday... It was a productive day, I think. I bet I can come up with thirteen things to prove it.

1. I took a shower.
2. I made my bed. (These two things are important as once in a great while I actually don't get them done.)
3. I washed laundry and hung it out to dry. (I'm doing my part to save energy during this heat wave. Who knows, maybe we all still have power because I didn't run my dryer. I know that's why we now have crunchy socks and underwear.)
4. I made coffee, decaf of course. I drank the morning cup in my snowman mug and the afternoon cup with ice cubes.
5. I posted a blog this morning. This is also important. It helps me keep track of and sort out the things in my life.
6. I took the paperwork for my kid's health insurance to the post office and mailed it off. I also bought stamps while I was there, regular and Forever stamps. I'm stocking up.
7. I made an appointment to get my oil changed and brakes checked. It's been three months since my oil was changed and since I can't read my odometer, it's time. My brakes feel like they're grinding...
8. I stopped at the library for some books and found a few to read to Emma while she's here next week.
9. I visited with my sister, Priscilla, when she came over. I shared some ice cream sandwiches with her and Alicia and offered them iced tea. We also played a game of Chinese checkers together. I won. :)
10. I returned to the library this afternoon to pick up a movie I ordered. It's called "Haven" and is supposed to be about the refugee camp that used to be in Oswego, NY during WWII.
11. I sewed myself a new clothespin bag and found out I have forgotten most of the little that I ever knew about sewing. Oh well, it's functional and who's checking anyway? Hopefully no one.
12. Oh! I almost forgot! I gave the dog a bath this morning. She hates baths and usually runs when she knows one is coming. With some encouragement from Priscilla, I also cut the hair on her face. Now she can see again!
13. This is pushing it but, if I have my way, I will get that photo album together tonight so I can give it to my uncle tomorrow afternoon. I made a date to go visit him.

The day isn't over yet, maybe I'll even make supper!


  1. I love your list, and I think your new clothes pin bag is great.

    I wish I had a clothes Line....My mother hung such a beautiful wash. Everything perfectly in its place, with the work clothes on the back line, then the sheets, towels, etc.

    When she was done, I declare it looked like a painting.... Miss you Momma, and the smell of clothes drying on the line.

  2. Very big day!! You were extremely productive. I was not nearly as productive today, although I got a bunch of stuff done in the morning. I petered off during the afternoon;-) I also love your clothes pin bag. I have enough skill to sew a button and make new bandanas, but that is about it.

  3. You had a great day! I hope you were able to get even more done before bedtime.

  4. Sounds like a good day to me!

  5. What a wonderful, productive should feel very good about all of it. I love the variety.

    I dug my sewing machine out yesterday for the first time in a very long time. It was fun and therepeutic in a way. :)

    You're drinking your coffee like, then cold. :)

  6. Thanks for the icecream, tea, crackers, cheese...peanut butter...more tea.

  7. Boy have you been productive-- but decaf??? Really??

    Just kidding. :)
