I was able to accomplish a ton this weekend! I had a great momentum going until the dog peed on the Girl’s bed. I know it’s because she didn’t feel good but seriously! Thankfully KB has a carpet scrubber with attachments and that helped tremendously. Today was Easter so I was in a holding pattern until she came home from her dinner with her family.
I went to PT’s this morning for mimosas since I couldn’t eat the yummy caramelized french toast she made. I laughed more this morning than I have in a long time. It felt so good! We looked at some things in Salem MA on the computer and then I took her to the eagle’s nest. We even got to hear a brief conversation between the adults…so cool!
I left PT’s and came home and started organizing all of my paper crafting stuff. It was stored in three or four different places and now it’s all together. I did have to make a run to Home Depot for a couple of containers which helped. I would say that it is 60% better in the basement after all of my work this weekend. A couple more nights of purging and organizing and I should be good to go.
I even decided on my Christmas presents for the cousins and brothers…I want to make a card keeper with a master list of birthdays (including the deceased). I think this is the tutorial I will work with to figure my project out…http://anounceofcreativity.blogspot.com/2012/02/tutorial-birthday-book-card-holder-all.html It will be a ton of work and not everybody will appreciate it and it is what it is I guess. It’s not going to stop me from making the best project I can and I think it’s going to be awesome!
Last night the Girl put Ragnarok on while I was working on things. That started a conversation this morning at breakfast. When PT pulled out her laptop there was Thor as her screen saver. I said to her “Thor is a beautiful specimen of a man and while no one would turn down spending some time with him….if I had to choose between Thor and Loki for a dinner date I would totally pick Loki.” What the heck does that say about me? Thor is beautiful but Loki is a much richer character and way more interesting. So I am back to …what does that say about me?
He was walking right up to us! It was muddy so we didn’t get too close. I almost came home with a chick though! They were offering a “rent a chick” for $10.00 special. They were so cute!!! They gave you everything but a heat lamp. If I didn’t think that one of my animals might hurt it…I would have done it. So close…but reason won and I passed and just left with my yummy eggs.
Today I made the best dinner…or maybe it’s because I am so limited with my diet that when I find a good one I want to scream it from the roof tops. Acorn squash stuffed with sausage, apples,sage, onions,celery,thyme,rosemary,garlic and almonds. Oh and dried cranberries… So good!
It was a weekend full of highs and lows and now it’s time for Game of Thrones and hopefully that is another high point….Zia
