I am hoping that by putting it down in writing for the Universe to see, I will get everything done that I would like to get done. So here is the list:
- first thing in the morning go to Len’s Mill store for some good sales; hopefully some yarn, fabric and the supplies needed to make thermal curtains.
- go to the Sail store for a new coat and boots
- go to Canadian Tire and pick up 2 shelving units. I do not believe they are on sale but if I am to get my house organized I need them.
- put the shelves together
- find and put all of my art & craft supplies on one of the shelving units
- use one of the shelving units for starting to organize the basement
- clean the big fish tank
- dehydrate 3 large cabbages
- prep work for teaching knitting next week
- photograph and email some furniture pictures to a friend of mine. If she likes the pieces I will bring them up to her next week.
- continue to do a minimum of 2 squares a day for charity
- continue to work a minimum of 2 hours a day on refinishing furniture
- insulate beside the front door
- can potatoes
- can meatballs
It is hard to believe that it has been 1 year since mom lost her fight to cancer. Miss her
This is not my aunt but she has made me a couple of bears using this method. I believe there are 13 parts in the video series.
I just had to post this idea as I thought it was so great.
ooo I found another one
This is a mind spinning video but I understand that her tutorials are much better
Not that the weather is bad at the moment but it does effect some of the things that I plan to do. I choose not to drive when there is a freezing ran warning in effect for something that can wait a day or two.
That being said, it is with a heavy heart that I decided not to go help with building a shelter for the male alpacas for 1stopalpacafarm
A few things that I had done to get ready for the build.
- service my car
- buy snacks for myself and the gentleman that said he would help me (various types of nuts, raisins, bananas, muffins, snack bars)
- packed a bag the snacks with some home made fruit leather and dried fruit
- made a hot Italian sausage casserole with rice, black beans, corn, salsa, tomato paste, etc
- packed a bag for the main meal – salt & pepper, cutlery, bowls, serving spoon, jars of home made pickled beets, 2 dozen buns
- started a hot bag – several Thermos standing buy for tea and coffee with sugar & milk on the side, a dozen bottles of water & water flavourings. I also have my shuttle chef for the casserole to make sure that it stays hot until we are ready to eat
- packed a bag of barter items – planned on stopping by a friends on the way back Shalom Engedi Farm . She has chicken, duck and lamb. As well as chicken and duck eggs. I have jam, dehydrated carrots & onions, crocheting & pottery.
- packed a bag of extra clothes – ski pants, socks, regular pants, lots of gloves, hats, scarves and a bag of yarn for crocheting the afghan that I am working on for me to show my friend.
- multi bags for my tools – everything that I could think of that I could possibly need for building
- 1 bag of first aid type stuff
- 1 bag that is my car kit with things like the small stove, a tent, a jug for water – between the first aid type bag and the 2nd bag I have all the things that the Red Cross suggests that you have in an emergency as well as those additional items listed on the Canadian Government list
- my car is full of “extra” wood that I have for building pens
I am not sure but I think that is about it. Yes there is still room for people to sit in my smaller car.
Last winter my sewer lines froze and I ended up having to use a luggable loo.
Today I decided to purchase an almost “normal” portable toilet that is suppose to be more environmentally friendly and easier to clean.
I am hoping to never have to use it.
On Saturday I the chance to do 3 things that I love to do:
- help people
- play with critters
Anyone in the area on Saturday, extra help is welcome and appreciated.
