It's been a busy weekend so far. Yesterday was a gorgeous day, temps in the high 60s and sunshine. I got into a cleaning mood, and on the rare occasions it strikes, I better go for it. People who know me know that I hate to clean. To me, it is a necessary evil and nothing enjoyable about that. The only things I really don't mind are doing laundry and vacumming.
Here was my list of things I actually accomplished: 5 loads of laundry (mmm, love the smell of freshly laundered clothes and towels), cleaned upstairs tub and shower, cleaned downstairs half bath, cleaned fabric shower curtain and shower curtain liner, cleaned downstairs bath, picked some lilacs, went through piles of papers to throw out or recycle, went grocery shopping, went to Menards to get deck cleaner and stain, and then to Joanne Fabrics. I had fun at Joanne Fabrics. I recently got a rattan chair for free and was looking at pretty fabrics and cushions for it. It's a To Do List project. It needs to be spray painted first, but it was just too windy yesterday.
Here are a couple half price finds at the store. Got them each for only $5!
I loved this cute little bird! I've been wanting a bird to put out somewhere on my deck or in the garden.
And here is an adorable bird nest. It will probably go into my living room when I get that around. Also got a tablecloth for half price for Memorial Day!
Another task that I tried to accomplish yesterday was sweeping off my patio. It was full of these little "helicopter" thingies that kept falling from the maple tree. As soon as I finished, it looked like I hadn't done a thing as they had continued to fall. Hopefully, they are about done so I can get it swept, and maybe next week stained.
My oldest son came to visit with one of his friends. They took my youngest boy to the theater with them where they watched Ironman. They asked if I wanted to come too. Awww! I considered it since Robert Downey, Jr. was starring, but I opted for some peace and quiet. My son is moving back home May 30 after living with his dad for the last year. Yay!
Hope everyone else is having a productive and peaceful weekend!
