Things Crawling Along

Today is Wednesday, June 16, 2010. Talk about hot, it was a whooping 98 degrees yesterday! Much to hot to be outside, have to get chores done in the morning or later in the evening. We were supposed to get storms last night, but we stayed dry.

Still not where I want to be with getting things done, but getting there. The TA in the pool is back to where it needs to be so on to the PH. I have found that using Borax instead of PH up works best, because it won't raise the TA. So off to Walmart to get the Borax, only to find out they aren't carrying it any longer. GREAT! So went to CVS, Walgreens, Dollar General, Family Dollar, finally found it at Food Lion. So something that should have taken under thirty minutes to do was almost two hours. It seems like this is the way things have been going lately.

Then the boys had friends over, of course they all went swimming. This wasn't an issue, however when no one brings a towel and I end up with two loads of towels to do. This isn't going to fly. Now this wasn't something that was, at the last minute decided to do, they all had a change of clothes.

So today going to try to move in a forward direction, or at least try to get things finished up. That's the plan anyway.

On a brighter note, I did get my wool from Brenda at Wicked Wool Gathering ! I am truly excited about this challenge. The wool is fantastic! Brenda started with raw wool, washed it all, dried it and then dyed it. I so want to try this process. She has it all over on her blog with pictures. Thank you Brenda!

Wishing everyone a happy, healthy, productive day!

Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessings~


  1. LOVE the chicken picture! they are getting so big!! How long until you get eggs?
    I would love a pool, but I am enjoying my central air!

  2. Hi Dede! It seems like the hurrier I go the behinder I get in everything. I completely understand the laundry thing. :) I try and keep a few towels near our little pool so the kids won't take 50 clean ones outside! LOL! I love your chickens. I still have chicken envy. ;) xox!
