Up early and did the normal daily chores. When I fed the outside kitties their breakfast the new kittens (about 4 weeks) were running all over the front porch. They're learning how to master those "leg" things better every day.

After breakfast went to the shop to continue working on customer jobs. My hands are spent after hours of stretching jute webbing and hammering tacks on the bottoms of chairs.

Finally was able to liberate an oak stretcher on the bottom of another customer's chair. It had to be replaced because the owner's dog used it as a chew toy. Had no choice but to remove it and replace it. Fortunately I have an oak dowel rod the appropriate size that I can stain and finish to match.

When I got home I took a field trip to the storage building in the rear of our property to retrieve some canning jars. Will can tomatoes this afternoon. I can eat only so many.

Just finished installing a tiny high density gooseneck lamp (light portion about the size of a lipstick tube) over my computer keyboard. It's only 15 watts and has a dimmer feature. I'm enjoying it already.

A little lunch then have to get the tomatoes canned. They can't wait another day.

Have a mixed ham, tomato, feta, garbanzo bean salad planned for dinner. Might even take a homemade baguette out of the freezer. Depends on how tired I am.

That's my day.

I cleaned house, made and froze pesto, paid bills and now I'm baking brownies and planning dinner. When I get the brownies in the oven, I will check the garden.

Got up at 6:30. Made a big breakfast for everyone ~ eggs, sausage links, pancakes, sliced strawberries. Took Amanda to school (DH took the boys today). Worked out on the stationary bike, abs on the Firm and lifted light weights. Shower. Go do some shopping. Possibly nap to catch up on my sleep. Pick up my little one from school. Take him to Marbel Slab for ice cream. Pick-up Justin from school. Give them a snack. Prepare dinner. Pick up Amanda from volleyball tryouts. Walk/jog for 45 minutes. Shower. Have dinner. Watch a bit of tv. Read my book. Sleep.
