We were completely out of wood, so that also needed done. We had one day to do it all too. Or so we thought. Saturday night (late), Hubby got the call that Sunday overtime was canceled.
We got up early and him-hawed over our to-do list. We decided to take a look-see at the larger pellet stove and assess what repairs would get it running vs. trying to remove it and install the smaller one (requiring many hands to move the very heavy large one).
We worked on the larger pellet stove, need one part, and have plans to fire it up in a few days. We decided to repair the big stove, since it burns corn as well as pellets.
The humane society is closed for renovations, so I have no one to trap the two stray cats. They are driving Romeo nuts.
On a good note, with a combination of medicinal teas, tinctures, rest and four thieves vinegar, I am feeling a bit better.
I shopped from the garage again. One of the kids left a small, flat bottom lined basket. It went to the kitchen to hold bottles of club soda (that don't stand alone on the wire shelving). We keep a few bottles year round for homemade ginger-ale.
If you were looking to buy a heart bookmark from my other blog, the light blue one is sold now.
I am taking advantage of a semi-sunny day, but warmer than yesterday. I had laundry out on the line at the crack of dawn.
Today I'm joining Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom, although this Monday, my post lacks photos.
It's not very often I pull a hand towel with the right day of the week on it. I do need to make new ones this summer.
The weather outside is . . .
We may get up to 55°F today, but cloudy. Yesterday we had a wonderful day of sun! Snow is to return tonight.
How I am feeling this morning . . .
A bit on the mend, but up and at 'em this morning.
On my mind . . .
The garden and vacations.
On the breakfast plate . . .
Another round of coconut waffles and homemade blueberry syrup. Coffee too.
On the reading pile . . .
Kiss the Girls, James Patterson. Definitely not passing this book on to my daughter. The book definitely has more details than the movie, and it'll be recycled when I'm done. I have printed out the series in order for Joanne Fluke and one other author. I'll tote it along to any book sales and thrift store visits now. I'm already 1/2 way through this 400-some page book.
On the TV . . .
Movies on Netflix, Movies from the library

From the camera . . .
I almost had a picture of a red headed wood pecker, but he was too fast for me.
We had some beautiful colors in this morning's sunrise.
Looking around the house . . .
It all needs a good dusting. Again.

No chore really.
