What A Weekend!

Ever have a weekend when you look forward to returning to work? Nah, didn't think so. But I was close to thinking I needed to return to the office so I could rest.

I pieced and quilted a small table runner over the weekend for my sister-in-law's birthday gift. turned out quite cute. All I have to do is finish sewing the binding and it should be done before long. Worked on this small project a bit at a time - whenever I could escape from the other tasks at hand.

Laundry, groceries, cleaning bathrooms, bedrooms, sweeping and mopping kitchen floor, wiping all the counter tops. Not my idea of fun, but it surely needed doing. Surprised I didn't fall asleep when we were at the movies on Saturday night.

Sunday's supposed to be a day of rest? Right! After I came home from church, Michael informed me he needed my help lifting a few things in the garage. His idea of lifting included me cleaning out the garage and sweeping all the muck accumulated during the winter. Then Michael had a contact of his from Craig's List deliver a truck load of landscaping rocks. I helped Tattoo Boy shovel all these bloody rocks from the truck. Dinner? No sweat - on the grill which caught on fire.

Is it any wonder I'm enjoying the quiet at the office today?

Stay tuned....we're having the wood floors in the house refinished which means packing up EVERYTHING in those rooms to protect them from the dust.

No rest for the wicked.
