Lackadaisical Sunday

My Sunday was completely and utterly embarrassing. I can’t even…..was the theme of the day. Here is one example….it’s Sunday so I am having a second cup of coffee. I stand there staring through the Keurig listening to the water drain slowly. Mmmm…maybe I should clean that? So I had my second cup of coffee and then spent the next twenty minutes cleaning out the Keurig, first with a vinegar water mixture and then just water. So easily distracted. Then I went back to my bedroom and played some Words with friends.

Words with friends was another problem….SB started me on that and I had goals to meet yesterday. I “had” to leave the house for a couple of chores yesterday and I didn’t accomplish much more than that. I did finally put the drawer pulls back on the newly painted dresser. I have more to paint and that was on the list for the weekend…I never made it that far. There is still some clutter in the corner but here is the finished dresser.

Here is the before and yes I am still a little backwards today.

I have been pretty good lately, I haven’t been to the ReStore or any extra store. I am really trying to not bring in anything new that is not needed. I say that and then I come home with this bowl from TJ Maxx….

It is a usable bowl, it just doesn’t have a place yet. There was something about it that I was drawn to.

The most fun I had this weekend? Was when I was playing with new recipes from this book….

I had to order it from Search Ohio through my library and this is a great book! I made a bowtie pasta tossed in a Shiitake mushroom and Tarragon cream sauce and a wilted dandelion greens with a garlic confit…the girl hated the greens. I also tried a salad recipe on the back of this bag….

I don’t like beans, other than french green beans so this was a huge win for me. I also struggle with mushrooms. I like a properly prepared Portobello but that’s about it when it comes to mushrooms. I have never tried the Shiitake before and it wasn’t so bad. It was definitely an experimental kitchen Saturday night.

I had a pretty good talk with my brother in the sun on Sunday and he was having the same kind of day on the other side of the country. I also worked on a letter to help a cousin with a family problem…I don’t want to jinx it so I will be silent for at least a week. I don’t even know it my tactic will work but I had to try….for future generations….Zia

    I was talking to hubby just yesterday saying I have more “stuff” that I don’t even know I have and I must start going through it all to either throw out, give away, or keep. Because of the intensity of commitment my life has taken due to the care of our special cats, most of my life it seems has been put on hold. Sounds to me as if you are being productive, and I’m proud of you for finishing that dresser. I KNOW what it is like to start a project and then not finish it. And as for family … oh know that situation well too. When to speak and when to remain silent. Good luck with that!!! 🌸

      Thanks Amy! Your time to deal with stuff will come, right now though….your focus is where it should be, on your fur babies. I tend to work in spurts….some productive and some not so much. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! 🙂
