Back in the Groove

I’ve spent this week (at least half of it) getting back in the groove.  Schedules, school, exercising, cleaning routines, pre-planned meals….the whole sha-bang.

I’ve felt so swamped lately…hopefully getting in some routine will get me back on track.  Or at least make me feel like I’m back on track…doing it is another story.  I have been sewing a tiny bit in between family visiting.

But right now I’m going to sit on my porch and watch my kids fight while I read these:

I really want all of those pumpkins on the cover.  But I don’t want to make them….I want Target to make them for me.  :)

Love your to-do list...I need to make me some of those. I've had the hardest time finding my rhythm since we moved. A written schedule would help.

LeAnn said...

I wish Target would make everything for me too!

Katie said...

I swear I am the last person in the world to recieve my issue of Country Living! Just wanted to say I love your blog. YOur pitures of the river this summer made me so homesick. I grew up in that area.

Kris said...

This post tickled my funny bone. Must be the watch the kids fight line. I haven't gotten my new Country Living yet. I love those pumpkins too. Any pumpkins really!!!

Sarah said...

I haven't gotten that country living yet! Those pumpkins look scrumptious. I can't wait to see your new projects.

Miranda Starr said...

I like you. You remind me of me. Heh. :)

Leslie said...

I want Target to make them for me too! and I want that fabric....and I NEED to get on a better schedule too....want want want huh?!! ;)

Shannon said...

If Target sold those pumpkins, I would buy every single one. I love them! I do not, however, have the energy to make them myself. The best I can do is buy the magazine, cut out pictures of the pumpkins, and tape them around the house! :)

Maybe Target could make a version by Missoni! It might crash their servers again!

Sarah said...

I saw that cover in the grocery today. I also immediately thought I would like Target to make those pumpkins for me. :)

Valerie said...

You are cracking me up! Reading fall inspired magazines while watching the kids fight is genious :). I've been craving schedule too - I always feel this way in the fall though!

Q @ JAQS said...

Ha-that's great a list is a good start. I'm not even organized enough to get one going yet ;).

I feel you when you said you want Target to make one. The approaching Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New years, etc etc ... sorry I got tired to thinking about it...

BaileyGirl5 said...

I love a good do to list! I make them with checkboxes and love to click then off when done. That's a great feeling!

Target SHOULD be able to comply with your request. Ah....I love lists...

joannelesinski said...

My husband just had back surgery, so ANY kind of schedule would be wonderful. Oh, did I mention that at age 57 I am also back in school ? My sewing machine dust has dust on it. It keeps hollering at me, but I keep ignoring it. :(

toots2u said...

you are so funny!! Gotta love Target.... maybe they will have fabric covered pumpkins this year

ilovedolly said...

wow a to do list like that would really help my life! also - LOVE the fabric pumpkin. Target sounds like a wonderful place.

Libby said...

Funny! I handed my Country Living to my husband and said " OK, this is what I want our pumpkins to look like this year.: and like Target, he just stared at me. Rude!

Courtney said...

ha, I love it - sit on the porch with magazines & watch the kids fight. I do that all the time!
BTW = those fabrics looks gorgeous, can't wait to see the quilt!

Lori said...

I'm copying your list idea, with permanent tasks printed and space for transient ones/events to be written in. I hope you don't mind.

I wish I could find that at Target as well. Love me some Target.

sandra said...

LOVE your to do list! anyway you could make it printable? : )

klee1 said...

I need to make one of those to-do's also. My problem is that I make the list and then don't stick to it.

Love, love your blog and always look forward to the creative things you're making.

aksherry said...

I was just looking at the Living magazine yesterday and the potpies on the cover with the potato tops??? they look so delicious!! I must make them.

Theophanie said...

I feel it to! I just made myself a datebook because lately I have been triple-booked daily. Geez.

Archie the wonder dog said...

I love your weekly schedule - you've got a lot on it!!

Mrs. Huse Clifton said...

Newest follower I am in love. I can't wait to get crafting on some of these projects. I found you from todays mama and the fall tree I just love it!

The Spotted Lamb said...

I love how you schedule out your household chores, cause I do the same! Only, mine is on an Excel spreadsheet -- it's the ONLY way it gets done :) I also use a spreadsheet for vacation packing -- save it on my desktop and add or delete things as necessary for wherever it is we are going (along with a column of things that need to be done to prep the house for vacation)...it reduces the amount of planning and thinking i have to do! *nerd alert!*

Sunflower Antics said...

OK, fess up...did you MAKE the to do list or is it a template from somewhere, or is it from Outlook?
HELP! I need something THAT SIMPLE! :O

sleepycathollow said...

LOL! Thanks for the laugh...loved that last sentence. I just received my copy of Country Living also!

Allison said...

I agree with you about the pumpkins :)

dudrear said...

where did you get the schedule sheets? that is just what i need.

Katy said...

Yes, if Target doesn't make it - I probably don't own it. When calling my mom yesterday, I told her I was just coming back from my vacation home - Target. I spend a lot of time there. :)

Love the to do list - will likely be coping it, so thanks for just putting it out there and not saying "Don't copy or I'll sue you" or something like that.

Shannon said...

I love your To-Do list. I think I will have to make somethingvery close to that. Hope you don't mind. It sure would help keep me on the path. Thank you for sharing!

Jenn said...

I want someone "To Do" all the things I put on my "To Do" list!

As usual, your blog posts and pictures of lovely fabric are a bright spot in my day! And you give me great ideas for future quilts too.
Thanks!

Tiffany said...

I second the comment about the to-do list as a printable. Love it!
