I am going to try hosting my very first carnival! It's called from To-Do, to Ta-Da. The purpose of this carnival is for us to share our progress in the week that has just finished. We do our to-do lists at the beginning of the week, then we can post them on Tuesday (if you like...I do) over at Crazy Adventures in Parenting To Do Tuesday. We work on our lists all week and get all that we can accomplished. Then, Saturday night, or Sunday, we can look back on our weeks together, here.
What have I accomplished? TA-DA!! What should I do differently next week to make my to-do list work better for me? What struggles did I face this week that made progress especially difficult? Any of these issues and any others that you can think of can all be addressed here. This carnival is for you, so you can make your ta-da post in any manner that you choose, whatever works best for you.
The rules are only that you please make a link back here to me and this carnival somewhere in your post. You can use the banner if you like but you are not required to if a picture or something else works better for you. I think we all know how Mr. Linky works...I just hope that it works for me, as this is the first time I'm trying it.
Here is my finished to-do list for the week:
Pictures of thrifting for blog
Mon-I had to put off the trip to town until tomorrow or Wednesday. My brother in law is going to have gall bladder surgery and they have given me their youngest to watch. That makes two four year olds in the house! I might not get as much done the next couple of days, but it should make for some great pictures of Abby and her cousin.
Mixes Muffins Cookies
Reunion calls made
Tuesday was a bit hectic as well, but I got to town to pick up the groceries we needed (from Monday). I didn't make it into the garden, but knew I could spend a bit longer there on Thursday or Friday to make up for it. I planned on making those reunion calls Wednesday or Thursday evening, but never got that done either. That will be re-listed for next week.
Extra Blog work
Post Thurs blogs before bed
Wednesday again was hectic. I did get a tiny portion of my computer work done on my WHS website and spent some time learning how to do a new skill for future use on another website that's in the works. I didn't get my Thur/Fri blog posts done as I'd intended, which made me postpone those blog ideas for next week. I did get the pictures for those entries done on Thursday though.
Laundry Catch up day
Work on proposals and Resume
Chicken Fettuccini w/Alfredo Sauce
Thursday I ended up going back to town again to run an errand for my husband. I got the errands that I missed earlier in the week and picked up some of my garden needs. I'm still behind on my laundry even now, but that's something I can work on tomorrow after church. My office is still a disaster area and I made it worse this week. I plan on making that a tackle this week, though the pictures may make a person shudder...it's getting bad! When I was in town Thursday I found a manager's special on steaks, so instead of the chicken fettuccini, I grilled steaks for dinner.
Catch up anything that didn't get done
Friday I finally got in the garden. My son Dillon helped and we got the vegetable plot ready to plant. Tilled and mixed in compost.
Saturday was great. I finished the flowerbeds in the front and side gardens. The only flower beds I have left to do is my big shrub/azalea garden. I'm making some modifications there and I did do a little bit in that bed today as well.
That is my week in a nutshell. I have several things that will need to be re-listed next week. I didn't finish my blogwork the way I thought I could and I see that I need to re-evaluate the way I'm working on posts so that I don't keep falling behind on the ones that I plan on writing.
Now it's your turn!
