Actually, I probably don't have more to do than anyone else, but I'm a bit scrambled, trying to decide the order in which to attack it all. Usually I prioritize based on what deadline is going to bite me in the butt first, and that usually works pretty well, but I'm going to have to work more efficiently than usual for a while.
I started working in the gardens earlier than usual, but I let a lot of good gardening days get by me. We've decided to ask our favorite landscape company for a little help with the lawns and leaves. However, the forecast for the next 48 hours is HIGH WINDS!!!, so we may not need any help with the leaves, unless we get leaves from Iowa while ours go off to the east.
I cut down the peonies on Friday, and Dear Husband carted all my composting trash out to the back. I still have some tomato plants to pull, and before Thanksgiving, I'll have to cut down the ornamental plant that is trying to block my sidewalk (an artemisia, I think)! But, most of my gardening is almost done.
The Empty Nester sewing group is going to be here tomorrow, so I've been working on kits for them, and tonight we reorganized the area where they will be meeting. We added leaves to the table, swapped out a burned out light bulb, and moved the long library table from my studio out to the kitchen. Tomorrow I have to bring out the ironing board, and iron, and generally set up for the meeting. I want to move Halloween decorations in place for them, too, but I'm going to wait to hang the bats. I don't want to give one of them a heart attack when a plastic bat comes flying at them!
My weekend is booked up, but Monday afternoon I can get back to washing interior windows. I have some plants that I'm FINALLY going to toss out, and several closets to clean. Then, I need to get back to sorting out some of my mother's things. I guess, I'll have to clean one day, and organize the next, and work on Thanksgiving plans the following day.
Let's see....Empty Nester's, the quilting bee, and Thanksgiving, and Christmas.....Christmas cookies, and decorations and.hmmmm,,,,do I want to do cards this year? SO many things to distract me! *G*
