10 September 2006

To do list: untouched. It was, however, a productive weekend. I think I'll put aside that list and write down all the things I do get accomplished. I spent a good amount of time outside sifting wood chips from the soil that is the mess of my side yard. Be prepared if you ever have a tree removed and they ask if you want the roots ground up. Did I know that meant my yard would be sliced and diced and the chipped roots would be whisked together with the dirt and grass? And that no grass would grow back due to the acidity of the wood? Sifting seems to be the only way to get the wood chips out. I'm far from done. New dirt and grass seed will be the easiest part of this endeavor. Help! Emily, in the meantime, totally cleaned the neighbor's lawnmower that she had so kindly lent us this summer. It sparkles.

As it was Saturday and I was fueled with my usual high-test caffeine, I went on to the more domestic art of sewing. I completed putting together my valences for the living room. I spent most of today finishing them and they're hanging very nicely on the new rods.

Neither big job was on my to-do list. They should have been, huh? I feel good.

I like that idea - the "what I did do" vs. the "to do" list. I have myself a "to do" today, as a matter of fact, and I can pretty safely say not much will get done. Glad to see a new post!! There was no stinger from the bee - it was a wasp. And I think the hummingbirds are all gone now ... :(
