 Check off completed tasks on a to-do list | DebtX: The Debt Exchange

Happy Monday everyone.  Hope your day is treating you all kindly.  This is one of those days I woke up and decided to get in gear and get my 'to do' list completed quickly.  It has one more item on it to be completed and that will happen as soon as I take the last load of laundry out of the dryer.  The last item?...................................hit the swimming pool!  Our temps have dropped considerably, so I want to enjoy some out door time.

So for today I have completed:
 2 loads of laundry
 called my car dealership about a recall
 made a grocery list (only need 2 items)
 exercised on my teeter
 emptied the dishwasher
 made a loaf of bread

My new bread machine does a lovely job on the bread.  It makes my house smell so good too.

I have not talked about book lately.  Mainly because I was not really reading much.  Do any of you go through spurts where you can not get enough reading time and then you could care less about reading anything?  I am just now starting to read again after a several week hiatus.  Here are the books I am reading at the moment.

This was brought to my attention by fellow blogger Claudia Bugh of "The Knitting Blog By Mr Puffy the Dog".  I read this on Thursday evenings during our hour of Adoration.  It is one of those books that makes you take a look at your life and how you live it and where improvements can be made to better our world while keeping your faith strong.

This book is my nightly read and any other time I feel like I have 15 minutes to read.  This came from Josie.  She is voracious reader and loves to pass her books on to me so we can discuss them.  I have found myself chuckling while reading this one.  It is a nice light book to read throughout the day/

I also have two audio books I downloaded and listen to them while swimming and also while working out on my Teeter. 

Surprise Me by Sophie Kinsella

I just started this one today so do not have anything to tell you about it................yet.

The Magnolia Story by Chip Gaines

And, who doesn't like the Gaines!  This will get listened to after the first one.

That is all for today.  My dryer is buzzing and I want to get that done and hit the pool for a bit and then have lunch.  The rest of my day is going to be for crafting while listening to my book.

Until Next Time.....................happy crafting & stay well!


  1. What a productive lady you are! I haven't been much in the mood for reading since the pandemic started, I'm afraid. I'm slowly working my way through a cozy murder mysteries series (Odelia Grey). I think I'm on book 7 or so. I'm just plodding along, read 'till I realize I'm not concentrating, then put the book down 'till I see it sitting there and pick it up again. While the stories are entertaining, this isn't the most satisfying to read, I'm realizing.

  2. I keep a "to do" list that spans a 2-3 day period so I don't feel penned in by things that need doing - but it is more of a suggestion list. Hahaha. I try to do at least one item on the list a day. And then I have days like you did - where everything gets done.

  3. Im glad I'm not the only one with many books in progress! I like having a kindle one and a physical one both fictional. Then I like a non fiction one on the go as well.The to do lists never end!!

  4. An interesting list of books. I'm curious what An Abundance of Katherines is about. I will go hunt it down. HOW do you listen to a book while you swim?? I have never heard of that!

  5. You got off to a great start! I'm wondering how you listen to your audiobooks while swimming? The bread looks wonderful and many interesting books. I read daily....and always have. It's such a habit I can't go to sleep without reading even if only for a few minutes.

  6. I have muchless reading time now since I don't have pick up to do. I try to read a bit at night but haven't been diligent about it.


Thanks for stopping by. Please let me know you were here by leaving me a comment or a question. Even a quick hello makes my day and lets me know I am not all alone here.
