an unexpected day

Quite unexpectedly, I got the day off. Today is the 100th day of school and all my students are celebrating (over my class periods) together in a frenzy of counting to 100!

So, in honor of the 100th day of school I shall attempt to accomplish 100 chores around my house this morning. Here is a partial list:

dishes
laundry
vacuum
dust
make up guest bed
clear off dining table
clean bathrooms
put away extra yarn
put away extra needles
reshelve books
reshelve magazines
take out recycle
repot basil
organize seeds for planting
plant flower seeds
search for photo of recently deceased friend to send to his family
cull catalogs
call two friends
write three thank you notes
call in rx to RiteAid
sweep leaves off cement walk on side of my house

21 so far. I'll be lucky to get 10 done.

22. reduce amount of tea in my cupboard
23. use up more yarn
24. take more digital photos

I have a vacation day on Monday. It's so much fun to think about what I want to do with another vacation day...

Hi Willow - Thanks for the comment on my blog - No, I didn't get the email about the duplicate stitch - can you send it again?
Thanks.

Of course you got 100 things done. You just have to know how to count them. You opened the sock drawer. You selected which socks to wear today. You took them out. You closed the sock drawer. You sat down. You put on your right sock. You put on your left sock. That's seven things, and you still haven't got your shoes on yet. did you lump it all into "Get dressed?" Silly!
