This Week's To-Dos

Let's see how I did with last week's list!

Gardening and Homestead

  • Dead head rose bushes to hopefully get an autumn flush of flowers.
  • Veggie garden - don't even look in there! You may have seen the photos last week - terrible, I know! I did a bit of weeding last week, not a noticeable amount though.

Knitting, sewing and crafting

  • Winding skeins ready for dyeing and plan some dyeing colour schemes.
  • Finish Amy Pinafore - so close!
  • Finish Ugly Yarn Monster.
  • Three hours of hand quilting on Miss Ballerina's quilt - yes, this is still not finished!

  • Freezer inventory -who knew we still had so much beef left in there!
  • Sort out two boxes from shed.
  • Start organising recipe folder. - Finished - hooray! And I have even started using some of the recipes from it.

So some of the items are back on the list for this week, as they are never-ending, revolving list items.

Gardening and Homestead
  • Weeding veggie garden
  • Sow seeds of silverbeet, peas, coriander, lettuce, kale
  • Clean out chicken pen and lay new straw

Knitting, sewing and crafting
  • Pantry inventory
  • Sort out two boxes from shed
  • Make pizza bases for the freezer
How is your week shaping up? Looking busy or relaxing?


  1. You are slowly ticking off that list, Jayne...good on you. I love Lucille Ball's quote, there is nothing quite like starting the day with a dose of optimism. I am looking forward to seeing Amy's pinafore, finished; it is so pretty.

    1. Slowly does it! Eventually I will get the garage and sheds sorted out, and the garden back in order.
      I am on the bodice of the pinafore now, so maybe tonight I will get some knitting time in - after a school meeting at 7.30!
