My brain is filled with too many things today to write. To many activities, chores, projects, creative ideas that I am about to bust at the seams. I will make an abbreviated list of what is on deck and then when the day is done, I will let you know how far I got. Mind you, I came home yesterday after a packed day at work and cleaned my house. Really cleaned because Thanksgiving is days away and I want the clutter and crumb crunching debris removed. But here is the day’s ambition:
convert that gallon of pure Vermont maple syrup into 8 pint sized, sterilized, and sealed mason jars for gift giving.Considering an ‘adult’ version of the maple syrup with either a dollop of bourbon or orange extract. Maybe I will make 4 plain, 2 bourbon and 2 orange. We shall see. I got advice from Suzy at Chiot’s Run about repackaging the gallon of syrup, so I am emboldened. clean out the garageand take all the boys’ out grown clothes to Good Will buy a few trays of pansies to plant along the front walkway buy rye seed to rye the acreage collect all the pine cones off the property to make firestarters finish the calendar project and place the order for printing
- make a run to Joann fabrics and
Buttons & Bows quilt store
- fold AND PUT AWAY all the washed laundry
- finish the “on deck” quilt top…it is a Christmas gift, Lisa. Get crackin!
And with that I will get my tushie in gear. Have a lovely Saturday people.
