Well done Katty and Rhoda. I've been busy painting gates and a pipe and then it was out to a family get together.

Well we haven't been here in like forever, but with good reason. And just because we've been silent doesn't mean that we have not been busy.

Like a gift from God a friend of the family, who happens to be a great handyman, flew in for the week to do some much needed work on the house I am trying to rent and on mine too. He has a very high metabolism and it's quite contagious for dd and I. On her own, dd did her chores this morning and then cleaned her room (not on today's chore list. Since he arrived she also has been painting walls, rescreening window screens, removing and replacing lightswitch and outlet covers. She washed the car and helped my friend when he was replacing one of the door frames and several other more minor repairs. She also helped us lay a pallet of sod.

We've cleaned the deck and pool. I cleaned out some empty boxes and trash from the attic and cleared out several boxes that were still being stored in the house. I got rid of enough stuff in the garage to give me about 3 feet of clearance and finally located the box that had her Science text book in it.

So we haven't done all of the assorted candy, but I think we will continue once he has gone. He flies out on Tuesday and you might see me around more then. Until then, however, know that I am flying like crazy.

Rhoda

Probably coffee table. Cutlery box is in good nick so I'll give the coffee table a going over. It's glass so when the sun shine on it, every mark can be seen.
this is a great activity Katty.

if your cuttlery box needs cleaning or straightening, it does!

Btw, end table, coffee table and side table seem to be more or less the same thing. What do you call it?

emoticon Katty, I am so sorry. I did enjoy the ten minutes of Pilates though. I used to do it once a week and it is such good stretching exercise I should go back to it.

What's an end table? I have a cutlery box, does that count?

you're such the spoilsport! I wanted those candies to go bad if not eaten in the day so I would have the excuse to "forget" about one for a day, and then, oh my! It's gone bad, I can't eat it now! bad bad Sandy!

Anyway, got another sweet candy: water plants. My outside plants really needed watering and I would have let them thirsty for another 2 or 3 days had not been for this candy!

i've been a bit piggy, once I started on that candy I just had to have another. All gone now, did pilates video workout, much to hubby's amusement, window washed and one room of dust under furniture done. Found one or two interesting things there too from DGK's visits. LOL

put away stray items in your bedroom- good! I don't have many! Piece of cake!

The books I had on my nightstand got put away with the first candy anyway!

Funny how the three candies I got took me to my own bedroom- and I much needed it because it is the place I most neglect, except for making the bed daily.

Oh Katty, you obviously never had an older brother who would tease you about eating your candies too quickly and then ate his in great pleasure while you salivated. These lessons teach you great skills over procrastinating on the good things. I'll get around to enjoying my candies in time, I have them stored in a secret hiding place and you're not getting them back. emoticon

Sandy, I think those candies have a one day expiration date. So they won't be any good when you come back. For your own safety, I'd advice to pick a new candy and forget about the expired ones!

Wednesday - vacuum under furniture. That might have to wait as I'm off on a steam train trip today. Missed out on the video yesterday, looks like I'm getting a back log of candies.

I read this challenge in the email - as I scrolled down while reading I saw the list was there - so I stopped reading and decided on some numbers - Prime Ones - Hopefully I get the Prime Candies! Woot!
So now I have 7 numbers: 1,2,3,7,11,13 & 17 (one for each day/week)
I haven't looked yet to see what they are - will do that now.

**Carefully uses thumb to break outer candy shell to see what gooey-ness lies within**

1. empty refg/ clean thoroughly **was done just recently** DID again :) 10/10
2. wash shower door *(modify to wash/wipe liner)* DID 10/5 while taking shower
3. wash windows in one room COMPLETED 10/15 - and shrink-wrapped (winterized) each window in Kitchen, 5 inside windows.
7. throw empty boxes and boxes from your laundry room **This is Not an issue**
11. make yourself a cup of tea or coffee and paint your nails **I do this anyways**
13. clean cobwebs DID 10/9
17. sweep, vacuum or mop the floor in your kitchen - Swept daily, spot mopped as needed - Good scrub still needs to be done.

Hmmmm. OK, some will work with a bit of modification - but 2, maybe 3, may not - so I had E pick 3 additional numbers: 12, 14 & 19

12. clean the phone DID 10/6
14. clean switch plates of handprints DID 10/10 there are 8 switch plates on the 1st floor
19. pick a Spark Fitness Video and do it!

Will edit this posts as they get completed this week :)

Thanks for the creativeness Katty

10/7 misplaced Candy bag while decluttering Hot Spot - none completed.

I pulled #7, and believe it or not, I spoke with my family earlier tonight about someone helping me recycle the boxes, paper, & cardboard on Monday! Due to the new medicine I'm on temporarily, I'm not allowed to drive, so I need help. Now to be sure I can convince my daughters to help . . . .

What a novel idea!!

DD and I pulled out the bingo tiles from 1-21 and put them in a can. She pulled number 10 and I got number 11. I'll wait until the morning to have my tea and paint my nails. They really do need it!

You have the most awesome ideas Katty. I got a lovely lolly, just what I do on Mondays, water my plants, only those in pots though. The others have to be dry spell tolerant.

You know what's it like when somebody has this big bag of assorted candies and offers and you never know what you'll get but whatever it, you'll eat it? Well, that's what we are going to be doing this week!

I've put together a big bag of candies for you, some very sweet, some not so much. You may even find a couple of pepper flavoured ones! LOL. So, you'll close your eyes, think of a number between 1 and 21 and then go see what you got! Whatever it is, you'll eat it because that's the candy you got! You'll see that there are 21 candies but only 7 days which means you won't have to have those other candies(chores)! WooHoo!

1- empty refg/ clean thoroughly
2-wash shower door
3- wash windows in one room
4-straighten drawers or cabinets in one bedroom
5-put away stray items in your bedroom
6-clean off the monitor screen
7-throw empty bottles and boxes from your laundry room
8- cull some books from everywhere in the house and put them back in the bookcase
9-arrange the shoes in your closet
10-clean out end table in your living/family room
11-make yourself a cup of tea or coffee and paint your nails
12-clean the phone
13-clean cobwebs
14-clean switch plates of handprints
15-have a fruit
16- dust furniture in your entrance/living room
17-sweep, vacuum or mop the floor in your kitchen
18-drink 4 glasses of water today- and water is not tea, coffee, or juice for this one!
19-pick a Spark Fitness Video and do it!
20- water your plants
21- move furniture and vacuum underneath in your worst room- careful with your back!

Hope you get sweet candies!
Share what you got!
