What are you up to today?


Just sitting in my chair planning my day...

It feels so strange to have the whole day ahead of me with nothing set in concrete.

Sure there's the usual cleaning and puttering to do...

at some point I will throw in a load of laundry and unload the dishwasher...

hopefully, if the rain stays away, a little time working in the garden...

and I know dinner is on the horizon...

but there is absolutely no place I have to be at any certain time.

This is totally new for me, so I was just wondering...

What are you up to today?


  1. Laundry, cleaning and drafting my letter to the city so I do not have to pay all my $900 water bill from my water main break....I better get with it! We relaxed yesterday.
    Have a great day whatever you decide to do!

  2. Sounds like my Moday. Since retiring I find the "empty" days are the days I do the most!!
    Happy Monday!!

  3. Once I am done looking at blogs, which seems to consume my mornings, I will do the usual. Make the bed, get a shower, do some laundry, run to the grocery store....the usual! tonight we are supposed to get an ice storm I think I just heard. Lovely!

  4. I'm sitting here with my coffee reading my favorites posts. Dreaming of the day I can retire and thinking how lucky you are! well it's off to work I gone!!

  5. Oh tht sounds like a good day to me.
    Not doing much. I cancelled work today (babysitting) and trying to make myself think that I am feeling better.
    I need to disinfect, straighten up the house and replish supplies today before the children return. WIll I do that......I hope at least part of it.
    I hope you have a day full of sunshine. The sun is shining here.

  6. Right now, doing a quick check of email and blogs on the computer, before the girls get up. Around 9:00 they'll get up and get breakfast and I'll get them started with homeschool activities (the 14 yr old at at least, the 18 yr old pretty much sets her own schedule). Then I need to get started making an oven stew recipe. My mother's 77th birthday was yesterday and I told her I would make a big batch of stew and bring it over in freezable portions tonight. Hopefully I'll have some time to get in the garden and start preparing the beds. It's supposed to be in the 60's today, but rain tomorrow. Oh -- and some dog walking and lots of tea drinking!

  7. Hi Patty, well, I have the load of laundry going but the dishwasher is yet to be unloaded.

    I am spending two hours this afternoon reading. Yay!

    Have a wonderful...unplanned day!


  8. Oh how wonderful for you Patty! I am going to my Knitty Bitties group after dropping my Noah boy to preschool. I think it will pretty much be a day of rest, after we worked so hard in the yards this weekend. Seems to be the norm these days...Monday....aches and pains!!! See you Saturday!

  9. Try to clean the house after a busy weekend,cook dinner get the dry cleaners all before the kids get home.

  10. Laundry and cleaning....my typical Monday :o) Have a great week!!!

  11. I'm cleaning up the house, made an appointment with the optometrist, emailed my nieces and so on. It's a get things done sort of day before a friend comes for lunch later this week. And, the sun is shining! Beautiful.

  12. Love those aprons. I am ironing, cleaning and getting ready for 8 or more teens from our church to camp out here this weekend. Should be great fun. It is pouring rain here which is good as I will not drift into the flower garden which desperate for weeding. hugs, olive

  13. I'm working today but hope to play in the yard and do a little baking when I get home. Sounds like you are having a nice day.

    Happy Monday!

  14. Laundry, decluttering, dishes, starting some bread and an appointment with a surgeon to get my breast lump looked at :-(

  15. Working a split shift today. So this afternoon resting up for pm appts.
    However....in 2 weeks I will be a SAHW/SAHM. Looking forward to it!

  16. Looks like there are quite a few of us who do laundry and chores on Mondays. That's my work in progress for the day. I would like to get a blog post up as well. Not sure if that will happen because obviously I'm not working on it now... (smile)

    Enjoy the afternoon. Are you getting some rain down there?

  17. I hope you had the most pleasant of days. Bonnie

  18. Went to work, get my hair cut, went to my harp lesson and reheated last nights supper for tonight. I don't want to do much so I'm reading some blogs and I have a fire going. Just kissed my grandson good night. So the quiet evening is in store for me.
    Hopefully get a well needed nights sleep. Then get up and do it all over again. :)

  19. Patty,
    It has been a hetic week @ work and it's only Tuesday. After work, I treated "Mr. Ed" to a late lunch @ Arby's then grocery shopping together where I picked up the Spring issue of Country Home. Now it's a cup of tea and some "me" time while he's away at a meeting this evening! Hope the rest of your week is what you wish it to be!
