Warm Weather ~ Birthday ~ Goals ~ Eggs

We had weather in the lower 50's and the laundry went out on the line.  Felt so good to do that too.

Our youngest child turns 18 today.'s gonna be so strange when she moves out, so I'm not even thinking about that right now.

My goals are being set and I am so ready to complete them this winter.  #1 is get all my crafts restocked by the end of Feb. this year (for next year's show).

#2 is clean out and reorganize the garage

#3 is clean out the utility room and organize

#4 clean and re organize the bedroom closet, which involves organizing my patterns into binders, more purging and organizing yarn and craft supplies.

#5 is to be determined.

Hubby's goals are to buy wood and repair wall where we cut it out last winter to fix cracked pipes, to install an electrical outlet in the kitchen (or not, depending on if it can easily be done).

I'm super excited!  The ladies are laying again, after several long months and a coop burglar to deal with.  You have no idea how happy this makes me.  Woohoo!

Finished this set of hot pads for an order.  It's been over a week, and the check has not arrived.  It'll be interesting if these go back into my craft tote or not.

I have not checked to see if my hens are laying or not but with the warm weather they might be. I have set some goals for the new year as well. I am starting to plan my Christmas activities for next year already as I missed so much this year.

Carol, same here. I had all sorts of gifting ideas, plans etc. I did very little this year. I have a binder put together for next year.

An egg! Lucky you! Mine are permanently on strike, it seems. I actually had to buy eggs. Like you, I am making a list for the new year. I'm trying to keep it from going onto two pages, though, or it will go the way of my resolutions..LOL!
