*Tell amazing blog friends thank you for the wonderful ideas about redeeming my dish disaster.
*Read tutorials on making mosaics. (Dear Daughters-Stop laughing.)
*Locate these books that are not available at my local library:
Galway Bay (recommended by Sarah at Memories on Clover Lane)
Mockingbird, A Portrait of Harper Lee (will buy for youngest daughter, also an English teacher)
In the Heart of the Sea:The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex (recommended by youngest daughter for her Dad)
*Start reading Julie & Julia. I would like to do what she did. Could I take one of my wonderful cookbooks and at least prepare a recipe a week? What am I waiting for? I could even look up recipes from a magazine like Cooking Light.
*Stay out of conversations and the planning of my husband and father regarding irrigating our yard tomorrow morning. (Does the invasion of Normandy create a picture in your mind?). I can do this…I can do this…I can do this… I will take pictures of the event and a picture of me with duct tape across my mouth.
*Clean out ‘garden room’ behind garage. I would like to paint a permanent rug on the concrete floor and stencil leaves on the walls. Hang peg board remnant with the high hope that I can always return my often used tools to their assigned place. I can never remember where I left them in the yard.
*Talk to my father about building a pipe grape arbor north of the little house. I grew up with a grape arbor over our patio at the ranch, and I loved it. In fact, I would like a cutting from that same grape arbor. In order for this to happen, I really need to keep my mouth shut tomorrow morning during the irrigating. Just smile and nod Laura, smile and nod.
*Keep exercising even though I am not losing weight as a result. I think it increases hunger. Oh well. As I am also fond of saying, ‘it is what it is.’
This is a partial list. We all have our lists, right? Let’s get to it folks because as my father says,
“We’re burning daylight.”
