To Do Thursday!!

I'm really discovering something about myself through this process...My name is Kelli and I'm a procrastinator.  I mean this is something that I've kind of known for a while but now it's really standing out with these posts.  On Wednesday nights I'm always thinking "shoot, I still have xyz to do on my list" and I either scurry around like a mad woman or decide to keep it real and admit failure (well, not really failure...I'm also a little dramatic).  I'm actually excited to see all of these things in myself so that I can make the necessary changes.  Here's the rundown from this week:

1.  Power wash the front porch...DONE!  Rondell did an amazing job and I did a great job of watching :)  It does look so much fresh and cob web free!

2.  Go to our favorite farm store for cider...DONE!  It was a beautiful day Saturday to drive to the farm store and now we are stocked with cider and ready to enjoy.  There might be another trip in our future.

3.  Clean under sink in 1/2 bath...Semi-done!  I removed all of the various holiday towels and moved some other things that I didn't want under there any longer, but I still need to decide what to do with the tart burners that I have under there.  Part of me says "throw them away" but part of me feels like that's throwing away money.  I need to decide soon and then under the sink will be done :)

4.  Tackle the corner in my room...FAIL.

This Week's To Do List

1.  Tackle the corner in my room.
2.  Order pictures that I want that are just sitting on the computer.  I need to have them printed off and either framed, put in a book, or brought to work to hang up.

3.  Clean out the yard.  I have weeds to pull and day lillies to cut down.  I usually cut down my hosta, day lillies and decorative grass and they just grow back in the Spring.  I've already done the hosta, but I need to trim everything else down.

4.  Work on a few cards that people ordered and start preparing for my workshop next week.

Your post encouraged me as well, my blogging friend!

You know what I saw when I read your post -- all that you had completed. So often we look at all we haven't done, or have yet to do, and don't see all that we've got done. Power washed the front porch? AMAZING! Time at the Farm Store? BLESSED! Cleaning under the sink, even half way? DILIGENT!

As far as throwing away things I've struggled with that as well. For me, I've had to let go, to trust.

Blessings on your Thursday!!

This reminds me I need to clean my room, I hate that it turns into such a catch-all! You go, girl. When you're done with your yard, can you come do mine? ;)

I'm kind of a procrastinator too. I either procrastinate, or I'm obsessive about getting it accomplished immediately. Not much in between for me ;)

We just picked up our favorite apple cider too. Yum! :)

Procrastinators of the world unite--later. ;oP I put things off and put them off until the absolute last minute. Oy.

But, look at all you DID accomplish! That's amazing!

Enjoy some cider for me! :o)

We recently power washed our back deck...I LOVE how it looks so much better now.
And, girl, toss that under the sink clutter. believe me, once you toss that clutter out you'll want to keep doing it. I LOVE being clutter-free!

I laughed out loud when you mentioned about your corner room as "FAIL." You're too funny, but you did get a lot accomplished, so pat yourself on the back for that!
