Thanks for posting this bw2. Great reminder to think in general terms for the week instead of "winging it."

my talk with d kat. Thank God for her!
She clears my thinking!

the following is raising chickens on paper.

Main focus: get back to 1" of paper a day - fell off that habit and I am paying for it. :D

I won't be working on my bedroom for the zone. I want to focus in on the garden. I was going to work on the 3 season room but dd younger will be in town and I can see things being up in the air.

This next week - zone: garden (hopeful goals) (hope thunder boomers stay away (and down pours)
I have minimized my ideas for the garden.
step by step (no more)

I can't keep up with the kitchen (zone work once a month isn't enough right now - sun shows everything plus animals are shedding) so I am putting kitchen zone work during the week - I know it's a no no but it needs doing.

this week (hopeful)
wash the door trim in kitchen
wash microwave
wash tile (it's gross)

Laundry room: wash the door inside and out from laundry room to garage

garage: wash the disgusting door from garage to garden. (done last fall)
it is always a joy to be here with you!

My basic weekly plan for May 20 - May 27 is up in the air. ZONE: GARDEN (depends on rain)

MONDAY: Home blessing (I am not sure what I will get done... driving dd younger downtown and then dropping her off at dd older's apartment - she will be staying there today, tuesday, and home on wednesday.
phone calls: dd neurologist, dd dentist, me dentist, bank

TUESDAY: declutter day:
I would like to vacuum under stairs and have girls put their keepsakes in that area. Eventually I will scan dd youngers art work and put it in a book instead of having tons of little pieces. I have to go through it again and whittle down the papers. I want the girls to put their keepsake boxes under the stairs

WEDNESDAY: bill and paperwork day: continue working on health appointments
call someone to fix our windows again.

THURSDAY: Mom's birthday
Errand day: pick up the 2 screens from the hardware store.

FRIDAY: going sailing! if all works out weather wise.

SATURDAY: a play. (fingers crossed that everyone stays healthy)

SUNDAY: PEACE

MONDAY: MEMORIAL DAY/NO HOME BLESSING skip it.
it is always a joy to be here with you!

I had to simplify my week bc I was overthinking - simplify!
I had my big list of garden work that needs doing overwhelmed/confused me. i tried crossing things off but the large list for the summer utterly stopped me in my tracks. (looking at the mountain and thinking I had to do it all at once)

I pulled a few things for the garden
and pulled 4 things (no more than 15 minutes- fingers crossed) from the kitchen zone.

zone work pulled for this week:

kitchen cleaning ladies did :D
surface cabinet fronts
microwave inside and out
windows (they are still clean from the major cleaning in april)
clean doors


garden did 5 hours work multiple days :D
I cut the bushes down with sawsall and dh removed the dead bush I cut to the curb :D
finish planting (and don't forget to water daily in the am until water drip system comes in the mail). continued did a lot :D
wood chips on flower bed did some :D
paint the 2 windows in family room outside. :arrow:
pool replace outtake valve
plant in veg garden :D more to do

BWP
Monday: outdoors - wood chips, pick up aunt and take her to lunch and to the store, phone calls (too cold to paint), bills/paperwork
Tuesday: take donations in, rain choice: cabinet fronts no rain: outside work planting and weeding veg garden
Wednesday: errands
Thursday: mom comes home so it's a bit up in the air from here, outside work or inside zone: microwave
(i have to talk to mom and see how she sees summer?) I am hoping she gets involved in her condo stuff. she has a beautiful apartment.
Friday: up in the air - outside work or inside zone - windows (easy job now) and clean doors.
Saturday: ?
Sunday?
