Ten Things I Need to Do and Stop Procrastinating, or Caroleknits prompt today

 I don't procrastinate with things I enjoy. 
Life's funny that way. 
Carole's prompt is ten things you have to step up and do:

  1. *Make my Veterinarian sister her knitted pillow cover. 

I have superbulky yarn in her color choice...
I just have to set my mittens aside and do this for her. 
She rarely asks for things. 
  1. Buy the impatients for the front window boxes. 

  2. Get to the post office.  I have one envelope and potentially more that I can mail in one swoop.

  3. Gather a few things for the Animal Shelter Flea Market,
  4. (it is not called that really) 
  5. and Drive it up there. 
  7. Feed the rose bushes with Miracle Grow

  8. Invite the new neighbors for a porch sit. 

  9. Buy a new set of measuring spoons.
  10. You'd think I would be able to do this, but I forget until I'm baking...

  11. Toss the disgusting cookie sheet and buy another. 

  12. Clean my car inside. It is so far gone, it feels like polishing a booger, as Fireman says. 
Bite the bullet and buy some Keens for this summer. 
I'm so cheap and I hate to spend the money, but they are the best. 

Sorry for the list number mess, clearly I don't know how to use this feature!!

Ha, ha. Don't we all have similar lists!! I'd say get those new Keens as soon as possible; they are worth every penny! I have a couple pair and wear them constantly, as they are the most comfortable shoes I own.

Vera said...

Ha! I have a similar list...maybe a little longer. Instead I keep working on the same lace shawl (and have had to rip twice - thank goodness for a lifeline). I do believe Fezzik is a natural for the camera.

I had to laugh at your numbers. I thought you were just being clever and try to WOW us with a smaller list! I just learned how to do it (TODAY)! Visiting from Carol's Ten on Tuesday

Your list makes me think I need a list. But then I'd see all that I need to do... Ugh. Your list looks doable. I got my Keens in raspberry and I love them! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

OMG using this immediately. So funny.

Also, you have ONE pair of feet and you are doing so good with your walking and you love being out and about with The Fireman and your friends in the summer. Buy the shoes, enjoy your summer.

I love your red bud! At least you didn't put something in every number on your list! whew
Go with new Keens. They'll make you feel fabulous!

I am such a procrastinator when it comes to the post office!

Keens are the only sandal that my husband will wear. he buys at REI or at 6PM.com

Impatients are on my list too. If I don't get them soon I never will again this year.

Tired Teacher said...

I've never tried Keens, but a lot of my friend love them. Birks are my go-to summer sandal.

your little kitty is looking at your list and wondering why it's so so long :) I hope you get some done this week!!

I think your list should include snuggle time with cute little kittens. My list involves the usual grocery shopping, dinner and a long day at work.
