Ready To Sit Down

The other day while I was in the chicken run watching the chicks and taking photos this boy couldn't stand it and wanted in the run with me!  

Hunter
He was laying on top of the chicken wire that is over the chicken run waiting for me to come out.  Such a silly cat!

This morning I posted this on my blog's Facebook page...

It's going to be a warm day today with a high of 87 and I have lots to do:  a load of laundry already washed and on the line, animals fed & watered.  Still need to:  disinfect hummingbird feeders and store for winter, make labels for homemade canned goods, continue tackling the hazardous waste zone aka the guestroom, continue sorting and organizing recipes, write grocery list, add more hay to the chicken coop... mercy, I think that's enough for one day!

It was definitely warm today for mid-November and I believe it reached 87 if not a bit higher.  I managed to get most of the above list done while jamming to George Winston, Enya and Yanni!  I love my iPod!  And to think, I didn't want one for the longest time!  It's definitely the last of the electronics for me though.  Have you noticed that you can't keep up with electronics any more these days?  As soon as you purchase one, there's another coming out right on its heels and yours is now outdated.  Oh well, that's another post!

Let's see how I did with getting everything done...
- hummingbird feeders disinfected... yep!  They are currently drying.  I want to make sure they are very dry before storing them for the winter.
- make labels for canned goods... nope!  Will do that this evening while waiting for Country Boy to get home from work.
- tackle the hazardous waste zone... yep!  Let me remind you what it looked like at the beginning of the week...

YIKES!!!
 Here it is ready for our guests...


I currently have a daybed with a trundle bed so I decided to arrange it like this so that both beds could stay out as long as company is here.


This room still needs a lot of work.  I have not been happy with this room since we've moved here and the daybed is not the right choice for this room.  It's such a difficult room to arrange due to where the window and closet are located.  One day, I'll get a full size bed which I think will work better in there and actually finish this room.


But for now, it will have to do!

Back to the list...
- continue sorting and organizing recipes... nope!  Will also do some more of that this evening.
- write grocery list... nope!  The sales flyer did not come in today's mail like usual.  I'll have to go online to see what the sales are for my local grocery store.
- add hay to the chicken coop... yep!  The girls are happy and couldn't wait for me to get all the hay put down and spread out before they were running over to check it out and see if there were any juicy bugs in it!

So, it appears that I have finished half of my list so far!  The night is young and I know I'll get the labels done and the grocery list made.  The recipes?  Will take me a LOOONG time to get through.  I can't believe how many recipes and recipe magazines that I have collected over the years!  Sheesh!

How about you?  Have you had a productive week so far?

Till next time,

Woohoo girl! I am impressed with the guest room - very nice transformation! Kitty is so gorgeous. Is that Hunter?
I know what you mean about electronics. I bought my iPod Mini years ago and they introduced the Nano very shortly thereafter. I still use my trust iPod Mini that is about 10 years old. :)

Congratulations! So proud of you on the decluttering. My MIL is coming for the weekend and I need to get the downstairs in order. I still have tomorrow! ;)

Wow! I'm coming here for 'get 'r done' inspiration.. lol! Way to go!! I'm very impressed with that room. I probably need to take some 'before' pics too, then get right to it. Thanks for the ideas on music to work by also. I could not find anything that suited me today. I totally forgot George Winston! I like Enya as well. Can't forget your gorgeous kitty! Such a pretty pic. My Hazel kitty decided this week that she wants to go with me in the coop. Today she went into the run. I don't think she liked it much as she didn't stay long ;) -Tammy
