Just brought the ice chest in from the front yard - yard maintenance guys were updating some landscaping for me today so I had the cooler filled with plenty of cold bottled water for them to stay hydrated. Next week when they finish up I'll have some homemade oatmeal raisin cookies for them as well. They work so hard and I appreciate them so much.

So you've finally knitted your fingers right down to a nub? Bet your knitting needles are still smoking.

I'm unpacking more stuff that I've moved from the farm. I'm sooooo tired of moving stuff. But, the farmhouse is almost empty (read that: of the stuff I wanted to move back to the City). After that, I have to run some errands--not looking forward to that--Volvos don't have great A/C...but they do have great heaters in the winter (which is what I keep telling myself when I'm cursing the lousy A/C).

I am trying to decide what my priorities are for today since I am way behind after being sick all weekend.

I am doing a couple of cake classes tomorrow, my regular with my teen girls, and they are helping me with a session for some pre-teens. So, prepping for that is essential - make frosting, gum paste, fondant, make sure my kit is ready to go.

The cleaning ladies are coming in the morning so I need to get rid of the clutter and I must go shopping as I haven't felt up to it.

Finally, I have been wanting to make myself a dress so I would like to go through my patterns and material to figure out what I want to make.

There are many other things but I think these top the list!

Kicking back in my recliner watching Dr. Oz. When the daughter gets home from babysitting plans to go to the pool & cool off from this miserably hot, hot day.

Watching the men's trial for the Olympics. I am getting impatient for them to start.

Have any of you had carpal syndrome? I have had a growth on my wrist for about two months. It never bothered me, so I didn't worry about it. Now today it started to give me some real pain. I am going to have it checked. But I am think it may be carpal syndrone. Just what I need. Something else to go wrong with my body. I don't think I am goiing to win this battle. I am running out of parts that can go wrong.

Then I have a few things to do so I will be out and about for awhile!

Hope everyone is having a lovely day/evening
