There's always a To Do List

I have a few things in my head that I need to get down on paper so I can have a productive week. Here's what needs to get done:

-- Get my haircut
-- Leaf rubbings with Mr. B
-- Purchase stain and start working on staining back deck and fence
-- Clean quilt room - get things back in their place and new project planned
-- Get treadle sewing machine up and running - find a quilt pattern to do 100% on the treadle
-- Wash kitchen, hallway and bathroom floors; shampoo family room carpet
-- Power wash front porch area, garage doors
-- Review Freedom: A Novel by Jonathan Franzen (audio book) for Amazon
-- Come up with finalized list of Christmas sewing projects/gifts
-- Put up Halloween decorations
-- Check online auctions - looking for small antique secretary desk for family room corner
-- Cut binding for quilt that should be coming back from long arm quilter next week
-- Get out Cathedral Windows quilt blocks and start working on it at night again (this is a hand sewing only quilt to do while watching TV. It got put away for the summer but needs to come back out.)
-- Dig up some yellow iris bulbs and give to neighbor - I've been promising him for three years now, and forget about it every Fall!
-- Clean up veg. garden, burn, rototill
The Cathedral Window quilt is 100% hand sewing.
-- Dig up oregano and chives plants, pot, put in kitchen window

Well my goodness - that should keep me busy! Mr. B is here three days a week now (with preschool in the afternoon two of those days), so he will be here to "help" me with some things - perhaps digging up the bulbs and cleaning up the garden,  potting the herbs to bring in, and putting up Halloween decorations!

That's a week's worth of list for me! I'm hoping to get my sewing machine out to hem a couple pairs of pants tonight.
