To do

1. Make a beehive out of yarn for my daughter to wear with a borrowed tutu while carrying her striped cat, named Eli, dressed as a bumblebee for a local parade.

2. Learn how to bake the best pumpkin pie in the world (or at least in Circleville), because I really want to win the pie baking contest at Pumpkin Show. It will affirm to me that I can, indeed, use that square box in my kitchen apparently famously known as the "oven."

3. Redecorate. My house needs sprucing. Where's a good place to get ideas?

4. Get a hair cut and go red.

5. Experiment to find out what kind of materials could go into a rainstick to slow down the beans and rice -- Avery thinks chicken wire will be good, I think we should pound nails in a spiral into the stick. Maybe we should do both?

6. Dig up costumes to wear to Rennaissance Festival on Sunday with the children. I can't wait!

7. Clean junk out of purse. Continue to strive for the day that my car, house and purse will all be clean at the same time.

8. Bring in trash cans from curb (I dislike this particular chore and really miss having help with these sorts of smelly tasks).

9. Make vegetable soup and cornbread for supper soon.

10. Don't forget the little Snoopy cartoon mantra that hangs in my office: "Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a GIFT. That's why it is called the 'present.'"

An impressive list! I get lot of decorating inspiration from blogs. This is a wonderful one for that:
