Several couples from our church rented a nice a-frame cabin for the week-end. I don't know much about it but have seen a picture. We plan to leave after Ellen is finished bowling with her Aaron's Acres group this evening. That is the plan but in order for that to happen....
- I must complete washing and folding the laundry so we have clean clothes to pack!
- I need to do some food shopping for items that I'm to provide for our meals
- I need a shower before I can do the shopping
- I need to wait for the first load of laundry so I have a clean pair of jeans to wear!
- I will fold the laundry right away too....because I need to keep the washer and dryer running so I can pack.
- I'm sure there is a #6 and more....my brain just isn't picking up on it
This morning already brought some mishaps to slow my progress. I put the ingredients in my blender to make a smoothie....just as I do every morning. Only, on this morning I decided to clean out the sink to prepare for dish washing. When I turned around to stop the blender....I found half of it all over the counter...almost ready to run down the back of it (whew, I avoided that mess!). The bottom must have worked loose from the vibrations while chopping up the frozen fruit I use in the smoothie. That has never happened before. The one time I decided to multi-task .....oh well, I got it cleaned up.
Then while putting my crock pot on a shelf in the laundry room, the lid slipped, I attempted to steady it but....it landed on the floor and broke in a thousand pieces! The glass flew everywhere...into the powder room, the kitchen, in a laundry basket with clothes in it, behind items stored on the floor....oh my goodness!! I was in my bare feet and didn't trust moving even a peepy step! Was able to grab my swiffer sweeper and start pulling some of the glass together, grab the one brown paper bag I had in the cabinet and reach the dust pan and brush. I have a small laundry room =) A sweep with the vacuum and I do believe I have it all up.
So now, back to the laundry folding and packing so I can get on with my day.....time is flying! Have a great week-end! You won't hear from me until I return. I don't expect Internet connections and I don't have a media package for my phone anymore either.....not sure if there would be service anyway. It's really good to get away from it all once in awhile!
Have a great day!
