My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

update The Todo List.

Please stop by here and leave a comment for Thesaurus Thursday. Answers and Winners go up tomorrow.


you might remember that back on 8/31 I sat down and wrote out what my friend Adrienne calls a "Brain Drain"....

Well, here's what my Todo List looks like now!

add the kids religious education classes to the big calendar
add the riding lessons to same calendar
weed flower bed
put bills in mail
call orthopedic specialist for Gator's follow up apt
call PCP for referral to othopedic specialist
work on lagniappe--get in mail

get fabric for ghost costumes --use Jo Ann's gift cert dug out some flannel fitted sheets that weren't in use! freebie woohoo!
finish apron for Sugars' dress
make cross template and start cutting plastic canvas for this year's Christmas gifts I've got half the crosses cut out.
make binding for Sugars' quilt finish Sugars' quilt
dig bed for roses and daylillies
buy manure and soil for new bed

plant roses and daylillies. I got 1 set of daylillies (from Adrienne, THANKS!) in the ground and then the rains came and haven't let up YET!!
mend Sugars' dress
call Sugars and Gator's school to find out what time they'll be early-released next friday.


It's just about time to sit down and make a new Todo List!

Check out Sugars' finished quilt!

Yay! The quilt looks great! So do all those things marked off your to-do list.

My to-do list keeps unexpectedly expanding, but I'm not complaining. Most of my to-do stuff this week is due to a windfall of fruit and veggies to freeze and can and add to my food stores. Free is the best kind of produce. Besides, someone once told me that hunger makes good sauce, or words to that effect. ;-)

8 pints of salsa already canned, and about that many are almost ready to jar up and seal. Whew! I is TARD!
