Working with hindrances

Our beautiful weather sure is making it hard for me to get my to-do list checked off. After my early morning walk yesterday I didn't want to come in and start indoor jobs. Looking out into my backyard made me want to be out there in the morning coolness and dappled sunshine, so...

... I pulled my cutting board and fabric out onto the patio and cut out my skirt there.

And when the outside temps got hot, I went inside and sewed it up!
(I'll try to get pictures made of the finished skirt soon.)
So, even with the call of the outdoors I've managed to get over half of my wish list  To-Do list done.

I have a haircut appointment for this afternoon and
hopefully, I can get my jelly made today.
I'm down to less than half of a half-pint jar!
And those peppers just keep shaming me for not getting them picked and into the freezer.
I can just hear their little voices when I'm outside, "Save us, we're getting old and tough hanging on these vines."


  1. That's quite a list accomplished and these peppers are so enticing. I feel like cooking one now - so fresh, so green

  2. Sherry, you have permission to be outside enjoying the weather when it is so nice, because those are rare days. Clever of you to accomplish something at the same time:) I just returned from a visit with my parents who gave me 2 plastic bags full of ripe tomatoes! I have a dilemma now! Looks like tomatoes for dinner! Have a nice day! Twyla

  3. Your yard is lovely, Sherry!

  4. I can't wait to see your skirt. I love the colors of Fall! Even though we are still hot here, I'll begin wearing these colors more and more! Sweet hugs!

  5. Sherry, thank you for your comments on my blog. That was such a kind gesture. It has been a month, but today is my first day of my new life, the kids have all returned home and I'm officially a widow. It feels weird to even say that out loud. The Lord doesn't give us more than we can bear, so I will be ok. I pride myself in being a willow, not an oak and I can bend with change, not break. You have a lovely blog. Thanks for support, Hedy

  6. I agree with you, I love being outside doing tasks and enjoying the fresh air. Your yard is beautiful. ;o)

  7. Now that's a gorgeous office!


I'm so happy you're leaving me a comment! ~ Sherry
