Things to do today...

** Edited to add: I have finished everything on my list. Everything else I do today will be a bonus. Should I go to bed early? read a book? take a long bath? Stay tuned to find out what I do this evening in my "free" time.**

Charity has inspired me to create a to do list for today. I did stay up until 2:00 am this morning cleaning (it only took a can of Coke, a can of Dr. Pepper, a chocolate bar and piece of peach pie to fuel me). I got the entry way cleaned, the kitchen straightened and two loads of laundry washed.

I worked yesterday. We sponsor a king and queen contest at the county fair and so I got to work there.

This is what I want to get done today. I will try to post "done" behind them after I get something done.

-take window clings off the windows (done)
-2 dozen sweet corn to shuck and get ready to freeze (done and ready to go in freezer)
-plan supper (done- hamburgers, sweet corn, fresh green beans, peach cobbler and homemade ice cream)
-make a peach cobbler from fresh peaches (done)
-make salsa with tomatoes that are getting very ripe (done)
-get ripe tomatoes out of the garden (done)
-get at least one load of laundry hung on the line between rain showers (done)
-get 3 things ready to mail (2 ready to go. Not sure what the 3rd thing was!)
-take a shower (done)
-call my cousin and see if she can come to dinner with her fiance before she goes back to college (Yeah! Got it done. This one for some reason was the hardest.)

OK, I better stop there. None of these are all that hard. All could be done within an hour if I didn't have to be a referee.

Hope everyone has a productive day!
