Yesterday’s Plan

Don’t know if it will go according to plan, or not, but here’s the plan anyway!

  • Food: Dehydrate more: cherries, spearmint, etc. Make: cherry/apple jam. (I made apple-cherry sauce/syrup, no gel darn it! 2:02pm) Freeze the last of the rhubarb. Do something with the ragtag end of the strawberries before they go bad. Make a batch ‘o salad for dinner and to help clean out the fridge.
  • Cleaning: Pick up laundry room and dining room — restore them to their prior, really clean condition. Clean a fridge shelf?
  • New:
  1. Get the new register cover on (requires a trip to the hardware store). Required talking to DH, who knew where the screws were we already had that would work. 2:26pm
  2. Get another box of papers sorted? Deal with the papers you’ve already sorted.
  3. Start on the bedroom, as moving the couch out has to happen soon.
  4. The usual: laundry & dishes. worked on both during the day.
  5. Do something in the garden: — fertilize, plant the fall peas, I picked up a few piles of leaves and generally made things neater.

11:41am (made jam), 1:11 pm (general yard clean up), 2:26pm (got register cover on)., watered 4:00pm, of course it rained 4:26pm.

I’ve been looking at rug runners, for our staircase. I started out thinking I had no idea/no preferences one way or the other. After looking at 100 or more rugs in the past few days, I discovered I had a very specific idea of what I want. However, I don’t expect to get it, because it’s only available now at trendy shops, sigh. Have to decide to wait, buy something I can live with now, or just forget the whole thing until I’m really ready to repaint the stairs, etc. (No conclusion on this except that if the perfect rug shows up at a perfect price, it may change my priorities, pretty quickly!) 1:57pm

  1. I’m tired from reading this! I wish I had your energy! I enjoy dehydrating, prep work for freezing food though. Lawn work – not so much.

    • Didn’t seem like I got a lot done. But I do that frequently. Because I’ve learned over the years the PTSD won’t let me work nonstop on something. I have to break it up, so I rotate thru tasks: laundry/ cooking/ gardening/ cleaning/ computer. It’s the only way I can get anything actually done. A total PITA, but it’s what I learned to do when any concerted effort would cause a panic attack.

  2. Cherry apple jam sounds *amazing*! Next time? 😀

  3. I guess. I was winging it; dangerous with breads and jams. The apple was an addition to hopefully supply enough pectin. One of two things failed: not enough pectin or not enough cooking. I could NOT find a recipe for what I really wanted to make: cherry preserves! Next time, I’ll keep digging until I find it!
