Small Successes--volume 62
1) I made some headway on a sweater for Gemma. Of course, I got a little distracted last night while watching the first disk of Wives & Daughters from Netflix, and now I have to rip out the last row because I was purling when I ought to have been knitting.
2) I have some seeds started for flowers and herbs (better late than never, eh?) and they are starting to come up now. Bret has to fence the area around the raised beds so the chickens won't destroy the new plants as they did last year (I don't want to talk about it...).
3) I have a few of weeks of menu planning completed. I still want a few more. I would like to have a 6 to 8 week rotation at least, so that there is plenty of variety.
There is still much to do today and tomorrow before I can consider it a productive week. I need to make another batch of yogurt (going through it quickly now that "smoothie season" has begun!), and a batch of granola; I need to get more done on the menu planning; I need to finish putting away winter clothes and pulling out the warm-weather stuff, and I need to make some phone calls (I am terrible about that--I really am not a "phone person", perhaps because I can never just sit and talk, and I find it difficult to talk and do other things simultaneously).
I hope you have had some small successes this week. Read some more and/or share your own at Faith & Family Live.
