Note to self

Things to do this weekend:

1. Get to gym tonight. Get through a whole Primary Series for the first time in two years. Try to keep shirt covering belly pay attention to your breathing while doing sun salutations. Do not cheat and rest thighs on ground while in up dog.

2. Boil sap until the wee hours. Do not get drunk and fall over random platforms in the dark outside the shanty, thereby giving self matching skinned knees. Do not succumb to the temptation to eat hot dogs and drink beer. Do not aggravate husband by asking a zillion impertinent questions. Do remember to wear your long johns. Do try to get some knitting done.

3. Wake up at reasonable hour on Saturday, regardless of bed time. Get the minimum amount of housecleaning done by noon, Then stop. STOP. CEASE CLEANING.

4. Tackle wildebeest of laundry.

4. Inventory seed starting soil and get flats cleaned & disinfected. Finish scrapbook of this year's seeds. Rework last year's seed-starting schedule. Locate lost mate of gardening gloves. Clean off rolling carts and haul upstairs.

5. Make the garden plan. Avoid last year's pitfalls of creating garden schematic in Illustrator. Or at least, do not succumb to the temptation to place individual gifs of different vegetables in a to-scale garden plan, at properly calculated intervals. This is silly (and it took you fourteen hours). You are not a slave to your compulsive quirks. Well, at least you're not licking the light switches yet. Get a grip.

6. Clean out the greenhouse. Since they've now been there for six months, it's probably time to collect all the half-filled teacups, notebooks, and articles of clothing and get them out of there. Rake out the greenhouse beds and plant spinach and arugula. Mmmmmmm.

7. Buy bottle of wine.

8. Set up seedstarting operation in living room. (Where else?) Roll up wool rug and store until June when it will be safe to allow it back on the floor. Sigh over lack of heating mats and grow lights. Create signage warning visitors of carts that will be blocking access to the doors off the porch.

9. Plant seeds & consume wine. Repeat. DO NOT forget to label seed flats like last year. That was fun.

10. Head to the sugar house. Boil. Boil. Boil. Boil. Boil. Boil. Boil. Boil. Boil. Boil. Boil. Boil. Boil. Boil. Boil. Boil. See #2.

11. Wake up at reasonable hour on Sunday, regardless of bed time. Begin work on all the things on this list that you never got to on Saturday.

12. Watch a movie and go to bed. There's work to be done on Monday.
