Time for a day at home

We had planned to go strawberry and blueberry picking at the local farm (about a 20 minute drive) today. I've only been trying to do that for, oh, four weeks. And again, I think I'm going to put it off one more day. We've been out of the house every morning this week, and I really want to get caught up on laundry and mop my dirty kitchen floor. Plus I bought some tubs yesterday to organize the linen closet, which is so overstuffed with towels, sheets, blankets, camping equipment, yarn, and who knows what else, that everything's falling off the shelves and I can barely close the doors.

UberDad's going out of town this weekend, and I'd hoped to spend some time at my mom's getting my first sewing lesson (while the boys continue to work on their knitting!). Which means I better get the house in order first, or it'll fall apart while I'm playing, and it's our turn to host dinner for our home improvement co-op after we work at the Swanlunds on Monday.

So, clean and organize today.... attempt berry picking tomorrow.

I hope the organizing goes well! And if it doesn't, I promise not to rifle through your linen closet. :-D

Berry picking is so fun, but it is also nice to just have stay-at-home days to tend to business.
