"The Good Lord put me here to accomplish a certain number of tasks before I die...Right now I am so far behind I will live forever!". That is how I feel right now. I went out this morning to tend to the little chickies, and went by the garden. There are sweet peas that still need to be picked, shelled, and dried. I have about half the garden put to bed, but there is still that other half. The chicken coop needs cleaning out..again. The house needs a good cleaning and arranging to get ready for the Christmas décor that will soon be up. I have done no Christmas shopping yet. I am hoping to start around the 25th. Nothing, however, can be done until I am done getting things together for a Christmas Market I am participating in at our church. Part of the proceeds go to a crisis pregnancy center in our local area. Apple Butter(Check, done), Rice Heating pads(Pads done, covers not done. Hope to do that today), Butter toffee crunch ( Hope to do that on Thursday), some doll clothes I have finished (Not many, but a few outfits), and Cranberry compote(This is looking unlikely as no one has cranberries on sale yet. Grrr). Normally by now I would be sewing PJs for the family. Not sure if that will get done this year. May need to think of an alternative. Still hopeful though. I think once this next weekend is wrapped up, my focus will be able to go to the holidays and all that entails. As busy as I get, I still love this time of year. I know, I'm certifiable.
I would love to impart some frugal tidbit to you, but alas the well is dry...or at least not very cooperative today. I am sure in the near future some little tidbit will come to mind, but for right now I need to FOCUS, FOCUS, FOCUS! Have a great day!
