Sunday -glad it isn't Monday!

Well, as usual on my days off, I make lists of things I want to accomplish. Someone once told me to do this, and check off the ones that get done and it will "empower" you to keep on keeping on. This weekend, I wanted to work on my trailer, but only got so far as to sweep leaves from around it again...What else? I rearranged my kitchen. My big old 1946 fridge was starting to lean forward! I think the floor must have been getting weak. Can't you just see me in an I love Lucy episode? "Ricky dear, what would you like for dinner....oooooooooH wahhhhhhh!" as I fall through the floor with the fridge! So, I moved it and put my Aunt Mary's formica card table from the sixties in it's place. As some of you have read, Aunt Mary was quite an independent lady, and had just come to the nursing home where I work after much begging and pleading, so she could get some help. She couldn't breathe due to COPD and heart problems. She HAD to have this table, so she could work her puzzles. It was a different formica, white with little turquoise and pink flowers kinda '60's. When she passed only one week ago today, (and 6 days after having moved in) she had a puzzle almost done on that table. A chocolate cookie with one bite out of it and a carton of milk was there by the puzzle, along with an email that a coworker had sent me with jokes. She loved jokes, most of them racy!She always told me at least one a day. So - I brought the table home and now it's a part of my tiny kitchen..(PIX later).
I also had cleaning the deck and rearranging it on the list. It was done, although I want to do something different with the theme. It's covered, so I have two glidersm, a table and chairs etc out there. I use it as I would a room all Summer.Check that off. I also did the usual cleaning, hey-three dogs make that a full time job. Check.
So, why do I get this anxious feeling as Sunday evening approaches? I always want to do more. Anyway, I also checked off making a chocolate cake! Yummy- I made it two layers, put English Walnut ice cream in the middle and iced it with some rich chocolate homemade icing/ Rich!!

Until later, I will have to be satisfied and realize my expectations are unrealistic. I just love my little home, dogs, and trailer. I have a case of Cinderella complex, or maybe Spring fever!
The ole kitchen sink...

This is a kitchen scale I found at a garage sale last weekend.
All in all, a pretty good weekend. Well, gotta go take my Mom some cake! Later alligators! Zootsuitmama
