Back to Life.. Back to Reality...

Yesterday was the first day back to school.

Yesterday I accomplished:

Deep cleaning my bedroom to get ready for a photo shoot in there.
That included scrubbing the floors. Hands and Knees style.

I canned 5 quarts of whole peeled tomatoes, my first batch, ever




I made a pillow cover and valence for my son's room out of thrifted mod animal fabric.




I worked on my next outfit for New Vintage

I started on and nearly finished a collage for my bedroom.



I finally got some overdue mail out.

I signed up for the "organic veggie box"

I filled out a ton of stuff for school

I worked on my next video


I am so relieved it is "Back to School"..
I feel like my old self again.

oh my lordy, lordy!
I DON'T EVEN HAVE any kids, and I don't reckon I could do all that, even if I was given a month to accomplish it!

Do you take Vitamin B injections?
Or perhaps a more sinister substance?

How fascinating -- I watch my friendswithkids experience the same phenomena. School makes the world a better place -- children get educated/ art gets made/ chores get done / and we, the childless get to spend more time with you our em ur childful(?) girlfriends...

Generally a lurker who really enjoyes your blog.

Craft On! Melissa

Canning tomatoes is such a chore...that's why I let my husband do it!

That is exactly why I can't wait for back to school too (well, back to preschool that is).I have a whole list of projects waiting too!
Enjoying your blog!

Next week for me. Oh boy am I excited to have that time back.

You totally rock! (Oh my god, how eighties can I possibly get?)

I'm so excited that you're venturing more into canning. It's so satisfying.

What's this photo shoot all about?

Um, will you share this stuff you're taking? :D

Wednesday was back to school for us--but as our kiddo is homeschooled, it doesn't have quite the same results around here.

Bravo you!!

More inspiring than any craft photo ever! Your checked off to-do list is getting me psyched for the go get 'em energy that fall brings to me. Thanks for the kick in the butt - I'm going to make my own list now.

tatjana said...

is it hard? canning tomates? that must make for yummy sauce though, which would be worth it...:) glad to see you're keeping busy - I was very sorry to read about your kitty, hope you're feeling better :D

Vicki said...

Wow!!! Pretty impressive body of work! I want to can tomatoes, but that whole botulism thing scares me. I should just do it. Vicki at Hollyhocks.typepad.com
