Not Getting Done What I Had Planned

Hi, everyone. How many of you are having a day like me? I had so much in mind to get done today and as of right now, not one thing is done. I bought flowers yesterday so I wanted to get them put into pots this morning. Well, the electrician came to hook up some outdoor lights and was working in our basement. All of my pots were down there and I didn't want to seem like I was spying on him, so I thought I would just wait until this afternoon. Well, now it is cloudy and starting to sprinkle. Guess there is always tomorrow. The next project is painting the cupboard I stripped a while back. But now I'm thinking that it too close to the kids getting home from school to start that. You know how hectic that part of the day can be anyway. No sense adding a paint covered grumpy about not getting anything done mom to the mix. It has been a while since I last posted because of being outside getting flower beds cleaned up, so I decided to post.

Now, I haven't exactly done nothing today. In between all the must-dos of the day, I did change around a shelf in my laundry room. There is a plug right below it that I have been wanting to hide like the plugs behind my washer/dryer. (earlier post). I took a towel and hung it on the hook so it trails down to cover the outlet and cord. I changed everything else on the shelf as well. Sorry I forgot to take a before. I always get ahead of myself redoing something. The black candle holder was a garage sale make over that I posted previously. I has been sitting on the floor getting covered in cat hair and dust patiently waiting for its new home. The little whisk broom was a 25 cent garage sale find. Okay, I must be losing it to be buying someone else's old dirty broom. If it had been mine to sell, I probably would have just pitched it thinking no one in their right mind would buy it. Well, I did buy it and promptly gave it a good hot water/bleach bath followed by a couple of days outside drying time.

I also made a batch of muffins using a recipe from my friend Ann.She had posted the recipe a long time back. It is a Weight Watchers recipe, very yummy and easy to make.

Cinnamon Pumpkin Muffins

1 yellow cake mix
1 1 oz can of pumpkin
1/2 c water
1/2 bag of Hershey's Cinnamon Chips

Mix together. Bake in mini muffin pan for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.

Our girls have their dance recital this Thursday-Saturday night. A total of 4 performances. They have a rehearsal tonight so the next few nights will be late ones. They are each in a total of 5 dances so they will be really pooped by Sunday. I will post a picture of them all dressed up.

I will leave you with another picture of our dorky JoJo. I hope you don't get tired of them. She just cracks us up at all the ways she poses. This is how you will look after you have spent the whole night outside partying. She was out like a light. Don't let this happen to you:)

Have a wonderful rest of your day and evening. Thanks for stopping by!!!



  1. I enjoyed reading about your "day". It makes me feel good that others can have similar days. I like what you did in your laundry room. It was funny about the old broom and cleaning it up real good. I have one also but it was my Dad's so it is quite special.

  2. Melissa,
    I love the shelf in your laundry room ~ you crack me up about the whisk broom. I've had days like yours lots of time, it seems like I'm busy all day, then later wonder what I did. I guess that's cuz everything I seem to get into is messy. Your cat sleeps like our one dog ~ it's shameless. Have a wonderful evening.

  3. Hi Melissa,

    I have many days like the one you had! Sometimes I find myself walking from room to room and not accomplishing anything! Oh well, I guess I'm getting some excercise.
    Our cats sleep in funny positions,too! They're hilarious.

    Have a great evening,


  4. JoJo is too cute. I love your shelf and hey I even like the broom. :)


  5. Love JoJo! We have 2 cats and they are very entertaining, too.

    Hope today is a better (and more productive) day! :)


Thanks for stopping by. I truly appreciate it!! Have a wonderfully prim day!!~~Melissa
