I’m actually not sure how much of this week’s goals I’ll get to.  Part of me wants to take things very lightly and enjoy our guest.  The other parts of me say that this can be done while working in the yard and doing our “normal” things.  With the kids being home, I think there will need to be a lot of outside time and nap times can be used for socializing among adults.

I do hope to keep the house “to-do list” to a minimum – pick up every night and do a load of laundry every day.  I may even get the clothes line finally hung – I’m trying to find the perfect place to hang it.  🙂

What things are you looking to get done in your garden this week?
