Oooohhh…just saw a commercial for a program on the History Channel entitled “Titanic at 100: Mystery Solved”. I might have to break down and order that DvD for my collection. The Titanic has fascinated me since the first time I saw “The Unsinkable Molly Brown” as a little girl. Especially Molly’s life (though no one called her Molly…she was Maggie to her friends.) I visited the Molly Brown House on a trip to Denver one vacation. I loved it. I still have a secret desire to create and perform a one-woman show of her fascinating life some day…which I guess I should get onto one of these days…

Anyway, I have so far caught up on most of the dishes that stacked up on my lazy week last week. So that was about a half hour in the kitchen so far this morning.

Now let’s see what the die says we do the rest of the day…

The Library. I certainly have 2 1/2 hours more to do in there. Can I stand it that long? We’ll see.

First, I wanted to share something from this morning:

Newell called me to look at Luther teaching Firefly how to be a statue…

                

She was easily distracted…                          …so he gave up.

UPDATE ONE: As I expected, I couldn’t last the whole 2 1/2 hours in the Library. I have to be REALLY motivated — for instance, see the end in sight — before I can spend that long in one room. But I did get several boxes emptied and broken down for recycling. I re-distributed some things that belonged in other rooms. Emptied the wheeled cart that has been sitting in the Front Hall and put it away. And I got this put up so I could clean up some of the overstocked bookcases:

Every little bit helps. Of course, I still have this to go:

I’ll get it done eventually. If I go too fast, it will just wind up being tossed somewhere else, not sorted and put away. That won’t help. It just postpones the inevitable.

Taking a break for a few minutes, and then I will see what to do for that last hour. If I get anything more done today, I’ll let you know. 😉

UPDATE TWO: Got a load of laundry finished, hung and put away, so that is something. And I am about to take the Red Poppy and Forget Me Not seeds that I have and plant a few in pots to see if I can get them to come up. Eventually, I would like to grow them in beds around the pecan trees, but that may be a while…

 

DAILY WRAP UP: Calling it 30 minutes in the Kitchen this morning + 1 1/2 hours in the Library + 15 minutes in the Front Yard and + 30 minutes in the Pantry for the Laundry. (Yeah, that’s a stretch, but I didn’t want to be TOO short today.) = 2 hours and 45 minutes. Better than nothing!
