Who's going to tackle Sunday with me?


Recommended Posts

For the last 3 weeks I have been devoting every spare minute to getting the winter vegetable garden planted.thegarden is as big as a tennis court, I have planted rows of brassicas,lettuce, onions, garlic, spinach.........etc. anything frost hardy. I had even mulched all the rows of brassicas with a mix of compost, pigeon poo and grass clippings.2 days ago the Satin Bowerbirds moved in. They are vegetarians....and they are LARGE...... and they shred rows of veggies at high speed. Dh and I have been so busy the last 2 days we didn't have a chance to go and see what was going on. ARGH... today I spent just about the whole day using every single bit of chookwire I could find netting in whatever I could save. I am exhausted and I am not sure I have outsmarted the birds anyway.

My younger daughter is turning 13 next week and has decided that all pre-teen stuff needs to be purged from her room, so this weekend we are sorting to donate or sell all dolls, soft toys, games and other toys.  My older daughter and I are feeling quite nostalgic.  Younger dd does not seem to have a sentimental bone in her body.

 

Today I am typing up a list of all books to sell to our homeschool group.

Hoping for you that the birds have been outsmarted!

Happy Mother's Day!

 

I'm not sure how this day is going to go.  Both dh (who had a mild stroke a week ago) and dd have a terrible cold.  Basically, one or more people in this house have been laid low by a nasty, won't leave you, makes-you-drag-around-like-you're-half-dead cold for the last 3 weeks.  Since Easter we've a cat we had to put down, nasty cold and dh with stroke.  Wah!

 

Anyway, with those 2 sick I am not counting on a real Mother's Day.  Some years are like that, aren't they?

 

Today

Go to Mass at some point (depends on how people feel)

Read

Nap

Catch up on laundry

Maybe go out and do something fun???

Enjoying the peace and quiet. :)

 

Both my older kids work, oldest is doing a double today because of mother's day and hockey game. He is going to move stuff for me on his day off. Daughter will be grumpy today, so I hope she sleeps in. ;) Youngest will help me out with chores today with no complaining, lol.

 

Continue decluttering/cleaning.

Hubby will do a honey do list

 

Happy Mother's Day y'all!
