Weekend Work

Ivy trimmed and watered
I have been working a little this weekend. I try not to be too busy because it is my time to spend with the kids. However of they are doing their own thing, I do mine. I've been working on our budget and I also made myself to-do list for the next couple of days which is achievable. I'm often guilty of making lists that are unachievable which can lead to disappointment. So, in the next two days I want to:

  • finish tidying the herb garden

  • plant out some vegetable seedlings

  • make 5 x 8.5" patchwork flower squares

  • make a birthday gift for my mother

  • paint a small table

  • tidy the outside shoe box (done)

  • tidy the outside hanging plants

  • trim the ivy (done)

Tim and Grace(will she ever stop making funny faces in pictures?)

Grace and I spent some of the morning at McDonalds. Our favourite fire fighter was on duty and was at McDonalds for the Brigade Kids program. Sometimes I wish that Tim didn't work weekends and holidays. It would be nice to have him at home but he has a good job and we are proud of him. Tim's weekend work is definitely more intense than mine.

It's always good to have a list to work through, I never get to the bottom of mine though!

I love lists, but like you, seem to make them too long and therefore unachieveable. Good luck with getting everything done. I love the photo, even if Gracy is pulling a face.
