So Much To Do

I am grateful I have the last of the chicken breasts cooked  to have for lunch/dinner because I have so much to do. I have lovely tomatoes from the market for meals today.

--put chicken in crockpot
--then puts breasts in crockpot when chicken finishes
--get in clothes when they dry
--wash another load
--hang laundry out
--freeze raspberries
--put up new chicken water bucket with nipples
--go to PO
--feed Dominique
--drive to appt in heat with no ac
--empty dishwasher
--load dishwasher
--clean ac filter
--wash dehydrator
--dehydrate bell peppers

Let's see how much I can get done today. The laundry will be dry soon because it is hot and breezy. The humidity is still low but rising. It is a perfect day outdoors, albeit draining for me.

Diapers I last used almost 40 years ago will dry fast today. I had them all in a bag which broke, so I don't want to store them after they have been walked on. These have been great for straining things in the kitchen and straining paint over the years. There were five dozen originally, but may have dwindled down to three or four dozen.

Okay, time to get busy again.

Your turn
How did you use your cloth diapers once your last child did not use diapers?

Obviously, someone behind my property decided to kill the wisteria on the fence. That's okay by me, but they took out a ten foot strip of my St. Augustine grass when they sprayed from their side!


  1. I used cloth diapers with Son1 and Son2 but used only disposables with Son3. I used them as rags and they lasted a couple of years after the older ones were out of them but as soon as they were beyond salvage I tossed them. I use old panty hose for straining paint then throw them out.

    1. Anne,
      I used a few disposables with the third, but mostly used cloth diapers. I must admit I put these in a bag and did not get them out for many years. Otherwise, they would be gone by now. As I was throwing them in the washer, it appeared that instead of wearing out, they are disintegrating. They may not see many more uses because I hate too much lint going through the washer and into the sewer line.

      I, too, use panty hose on important paint.

  2. Cloth diapers were NOT fun. I don't regret one poopy diaper. I could give you some dust cloths.

  3. That is a long list. My list might give you a run for your money today. Grocery shopping at 5 stores, cleaning the house, and I'm sure I'm forgetting a lot.
    Fight the good fight!!!

    1. Sonya,
      When I feel well, I make long lists. Yep, you have a marathon on that list.
