The only reason I'm sharing this incredibly boring weekend to-do list with you is because sometimes when I read about other people kicking butt by.....
a) tackling a bunch of projects or
b) organizing stuff or
c) running a marathon or
d) giving up soda pop or
e) cooking a magnificent home-made meal......
........I get totally
jealous inspired and motivated to do something productive. So maybe if you read about me tackling some projects around the house that I really don't want to do it will motivate you to do the same.
My lovely inlaws shipped my Pottery Barn curtains all the way from sunny Florida (happy dance, happy dance).
But before I can hang them up in the sunroom someone has to do something with this:
Last year during the spring melt-athon we had a small water leak in our front sunroom from a build-up of snow. Alex and the fam replaced the roof the following week so the damage was minimal, but we still have this little spot to fix up. Boooo.
Last weekend I decided to swap some pictures around. I am loving how this print looks in this little spot, however since this picture is bigger than the last, it's sitting a bit too low. I'll either have to move the hangy things at the back of the frame or patch the wall and put a new screw and anchor in a higher spot.
'Member this before and after project? Well I kind of cheated and posted the after before the matching chair was done. I'm still feeling ashamed about it. It can't stay like this forever. It's just begging to be white to match the desk. I am so not looking forward to the three coats of white paint it will need after the sanding and the primer.
My closet. It is literally piled higher than my waist with clean clothes strewn everywhere. I have some sort of putting-away-clothes disorder where I leave clean, folded clothes in laundry baskets all around the house. Then, when I'm running late for work (which I am everysingleworkingdayofmylife) I throw them all around looking for the least wrinkled pants I can find in the 2 seconds I allotted to get dressed. It's like a bomb went off in my closet. It's embarrasing, hence the lack of a before picture. This project has been on my to-do list since the Christmas break. I need to just get'er done.
I was totally inspired by Lissa's post over at Humble Pie where she wrote about cooking with fresh ingredients. As soon as I finished reading it I tried to block out the image of the Pogo I had just had for lunch.
Mmmm, pogos. This week I went to the market and bought stuff. Vegetables and things. Saturday and Sunday night I'll be making some fresh, homemade meals. I may even try to make some homemade granola bars for during the week.
We'll see how many of these projects actually get accomplished. ;)
So, enough about me. What are you up to this weekend?
