It's that time of year when there is too much to do in any given day.  If the body is feeling good then you get lots done; if its hurting not as much gets done.  Then if its stinking hot I need to stay indoors; if its wet and cool the indoor jobs get done.

At this point though it's a case of taking a deep breath and getting as much done as you are able.  I still haven't got any veggies planted.  Dug a tiny square of the veggie plot, probably enough to plant one tomato plant...LOL  Still have not made a start on weeding the flower gardens.  The weeds are as big or bigger than the actual flowers!!!  The grass has grown another two inches as you read this.  Can hardly see the raspberry bushes for weeds.  I can see a theme here, weeds, weeds, and more weeds!!!

The inside of the house is full of dust, so as it's going to rain, I need to get the duster out and take care of that!!  I have a quilt that needs sewing along with two baby books and a ton of other sewing to do.  On the plus side though I have more or less completed one of my cross stitch items on my list.  Also completed all my book reviews for the month.  Plus keeping up with my swagbucks.

Got a list a mile long to do in the house.  So I need to set priorities as to what to do first!! 

By the way in the 30 oC heat yesterday we did get the branches chopped up and stacked for use in 2014.  It's always a "pleasure" stacking logs on a red hot day!!!  Mind you with the way the months are racing by, it'll soon be winter!!!

Been good so far and not turned on the a/c..........not sure how long I will hold out for though.

It certainly sounds as if you have plenty to do Gill - I often find that baby steps work or else it all just becomes overwhelming!

It sure was hot yesterday, and that storm last night!!! But looks like yet another hot one today. May is such a fickle month. Sometimes so hot other cold and winter-like. Like you I have a difficult time keeping my head above the running list, but amazingly enough it does all get done before the fall.

You sound as if you are feeling a lot better. I know the list of things to do is endless at this time of the year, eventually most of them will get done.
I am in the process of reducing the flower beds in my garden, don't want to be a slave to the weeds as the years creep on these old bones. However, my soil is mostly clay and at the present time it is more like cement, so hoping for rain so more digging can be done.
