A busy day... I think?
It's been one of those days when I don't feel as though I've achieved much, yet if I list it, it actually is a reasonable amount of progress. As well as the usual daily tasks of cooking food and clearing up afterwards, I have:

* More or less finished creating the epic PowerPoint presentation about why English spelling is so unpredictable. (Just need to add some tips on how to improve one's spelling.)
* Finished crocheting the third and final Easter basket
* Crocheted the other half of a pot holder to use up the last of the Craft Cotton
* Proof read G's paper for a maths education journal

Of course what I haven't done is made any progress with spring cleaning the house or improving the garden. This makes me feel frustrated and guilty, especially as the new next-door-but-one neighbours have been beavering away in their garden since they moved in. They have laid gravel and paving stones and, today, began erecting a large wooden frame. Possibly a green house?

Current Mood: frustrated frustrated

I'll bet the neighbours haven't crocheted any crochet, created any presentations, or created or proofread any papers.

This is true. :)

I think you did very well!
Sunday isn't a day for major projects - unless the weather is super good. lol

Thank you. You're right, Sunday should be, if not a day of complete rest, a day of taking things easy.

The best reason for creating a list is so you can see what you've actually done. Sometimes I write a list at the end of the day just to show myself I have actually achieved something.

Yes, I agree. I find writing down a list of what I have done is very helpful. I haven't been doing it for a while because I haven't felt the need, but this is usually a difficult time of year re depression, so perhaps I'll start writing a Things Done list to help me see the progress, even if it is slow.

I agree with seaivy - you did splendidly! Sunday is for ignoring the mess & formulating good intentions. ;)

That is a lot of things! All I did was, tried to catch up on line.
Mopped the kitchen floor.
And a bunch of yoga ;-)
Oh and one load of laundry, you are wayyy ahead of me!
