Multi-task Anyone?

I woke up this morning with the feeling of anticipation that I had something important to do today. It hit me. Today is my appointment with my Medical Intuitive. I don't have to leave the house. He calls me on the phone and tweaks my health by mentally scanning my body. He'll suggest a slight change of diet or perhaps a new herbal supplement. He'll check the metals in my body ...... left from years ago of bad dentistry and mercury fillings in my teeth.

I started cutting the carrots and apples for my morning juiced drink.

I'm chopping away for my drink and Cody is watching and whining for her breakfast. Her food consists of a vegetable stew, bison burger, oatmeal, egg, 2 tsp oil. I wrap and freeze most everything ahead of time. So I drop my chopping and make her breakfast.
In between getting Cody's food together, I start washing some dishes that were left in the sink. I hate getting up to dirty dishes but I must have forgotten them, last night.
.I'm getting ready for a garage sale. A lot of furniture has to go as the house is too crowded. Sorting through and tossing out is so difficult. Working on some CD's.

I haven't taken my morning ionized water, so I fill my pitcher and some jugs. I'll need the water to start the oatmeal.

I'm cleaning out every drawer. I poured the contents of a drawer on my bed and I'm hurrying to get that back in order.

As I work, a grocery list pops into my mind. Every so often I stop and add something to the list.

Better throw a load of laundry in the machine. The basket's full.

Have to get the oatmeal cooking. I slow cook it most of the day in a crock pot. But, don't tell anyone I'm using electric.

Let's see. I got most of those little tid-bits done so now I can wash the greens that I want to juice with the carrots and apple. I use a few drops of Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide to wash all the vegetables I eat. Spin, juice and I can finally sit down and enjoy my morning veggie drink.

Women are so efficient at multi-tasking. Maybe it's the training we get from having kids or perhaps we were just created being able to do a thousand things at once. It's not stressful nor do we follow a script. We just do it!


  1. I've had the same type of morning - Up since four, fed the dogs, fish, and the new turtles taking up residence in the lower pond. Laundered three loads, watered the flowers planted yesterday evening, read a few articles in Money magazine and planned my retirement...

    But I did leave the coffee cup in the sink - gotta give myself a little break.

    Gotta go to work now. Have a great day.

  2. I do multi-tasking almost daily. I think only women are geared for that.

    I need to sell some furniture too, but can't, just can't part with it and I have wall to wall, too. Picturing it would make a good blog post..haa.

    I have read that some cook oats for a long time, but I don't. I do little more than pouring boiling water over them, remove from the heat, cover and let sit for a few minutes. Should I not? Gerry

  3. Kj.... Four o'clock...... I'll bet your frogs are still asleep. I wasn't far behind you.

    Gerry, I, too find it very hard to part with furniture. Every piece has a special meaning. I've never just gone to a store and bought furniture. That kind of furniture I could get rid of.

    Are you talking about whole oats (there's also steel cut and the flakes). I use the whole oats and it takes a long time to cook. The flakes are fast.

  4. Manzanita,

    Thank you. That clears the oat subject up.

    I know what you mean about the furniture. I'm with you. :)


  5. My husband constantly tells me he would go completely out of his mind if he tried to do the things I do all at once. He is so in awe of the fact that I also know where everything is!
    Please visit my blog when you get the chance..I have an award for you!

  6. A bit of Yang to your Yin? Personally, I don't think multitasking is a good thing because you can't possibly focus on what you're doing if you're doing many thing simultaneously. I think, one thing at a time and give it your all. It will still take as much time (time in a day is reliable and finite=24). But, everyone has their own way and knows what works for them, yes?

  7. I love how you punctuate the description of your day with photos. It brings us into your life, which is truly grand.

    Tell me, what is the benefit of ionized water?

    And, you're cooking steel cut oats, yes? I started eating them over a year ago. They are supposedly wonderful for your heart and help to lower cholesterol. Come Winter I'm going to utilize your method, the slow cooker!
