One of those days.
We have to have them, I suppose.
It rained last night, so the mud is back around the homestead.
We have been cleaning in force outside. We have so much stuff...read: JUNK... lying around out here. Most of it is in 'piles' or at least sectioned off somehow, but still. It's junk. And it's not a small amount, either.
But, we've at least made good strides at taming the junk monster now. Though taming isn't what needs done, but it's a start and I'm happy with it.
Today is slipping by and here I am...on the computer instead of really working at the list of things that need/should be tended to. It's sunny out, the air is warm and cool both -- a very comfortable blend of winter and spring. It's muddy, but still...we have things that need done.
I have to get into town and pay the water bill. I was in yesterday, it was on my list, but I completely spaced it out and didn't drop it off. Can't mail it. It's due Monday and if it's not in their drop box waiting on them to open the door, they will be out here to cut it off, no ifs-ands-or-butts about it. No excuses. And, of course, they'll charge me a $30 fee for their trouble to boot.
So, it' a trip back into town.
You know, for as far out and rural as we live, we are really only 13 miles from driveway to town here. Mind you, it's seems much farther, with the twists and turns coming off this 'mountain' area down to town. I can't believe I forgot to drop it off :o( What a waste.
I am going to get to some sewing later, as well. I have 2 pinafores for Emily waiting on binding, and a dress for Abigail's birthday next weekend. Still need to do her an apron, too. And I need a new good dress. I always put off making myself anything, but I really do need to get one done. I picked up some really pretty upholstery material at Hobby Lobby while in Tupelo with Debi. It's a pretty light blue and floral panel print. My last decent kitchen apron was made of upholstery material and it got morre and more soft with each washing. It lasted me a good 15 years, really. I've patched and stitched and repaired that poor apron so many times. There's really nothing more to do with it but take what's left and turn it into scrap rags now.
I can't wait to make the new one and see how it turns out. I hope it's jus as soft and lasts at least half as long.
But, nothing is going to get done sitting here, is it?
What are your plans for the day?
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
