A person shouldn't be this tired at the end of a weekend--unless they've been out having fun 20 hours a day! I swear it seems like this has been the least relaxing weekend I've had in a long time.
Saturday morning I spent ironing mostly. I remember summer mornings when I was young, and my mom would do the same thing. The difference was that we didn't have air conditioning and she'd do her ironing in her underwear. Not me! I burn myself with the iron enough as it is--I sure wouldn't want any saggy body parts hanging around to get between the iron and whatever I'm pressing!
Anyway, I've been lucky enough to find a fair amount of Battenberg lace items during my thrifting excursions, and that's mostly what I was ironing. Here's a photo of my new-to-me bedroom curtains:
Much of Saturday I puttered around the house, doing some rearranging, putting away, and cooking. I tried out both of Vallen's recipes I mentioned the other day, and they were yummy!
Today, I spent nearly all day cleaning and cooking. I didn't PLAN to shampoo the livingroom carpet, but this morning Hubby was waiving his arms around, enthusiastically describing a soccer play, and knocked over a whole glass of lemonade, all over the wall, the carpet, and the table. So the carpet cleaner made an appearance. I don't think you're allowed to kill husbands on Fathers' Day, are you?
For dinner tonight I made Thimbleanna's German potato salad, coleslaw, and BBQ'd chicken. Hubby loved it all; so did the boy child. (I had to make the boy's potato salad without onions. Aren't I a saint?!) Lemon cupcakes with homemade buttercream frosting was dessert. All of it was delicious!
Between cooking, cleaning, arranging, moving, serving, and shampooing, I snuck in a few quilting breaks and finished up the patriotic quilt. Barbie Jo left me a comment the other day telling me she's expecting me to get a bunch of quilts done while she's on vacation--I'd hate to disappoint her! I have it up on the wall, but I'm still waiting for the quilt rod hubby's making for me. The rod's not done yet because Fathers' Day apparently exempts a man from doing anything more strenuous than waiving his arms around and knocking over lemonade. But I thought you'd like to see it--
Until this afternoon, we had a shelf/drawer thing hanging on this wall, but the boy child helped me take it down and move it around the corner to the kitchen. I still need to remove this ugly wallpaper and do something to this wall, but I'm holding off until I re-do the kitchen. In the meantime, I'll just try to hide it with quilts. And I'm liking the new location of the shelf/drawer thing quite a lot--I'll get a photo to show you in a few days after I finish arranging "stuff."
I need another day of weekend to relax now, but that's not gonna happen. Back to work tomorrow. I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
