This weekend was not packed with a ton of fun..but I did make a dent in my project list. I'm trying to get some things done before fall and one of my "to dos" is painting and cleaning out the computer room. I took a before pic but the room is very small and it just didn't do it justice. It hadn't been painted since we moved in 11yrs ago so it was high time. It went from yellow to a very pale blue. It freshened it up but the painting was the easy part..the sorting and throwing away of papers and junk is the killer! After a day of inside work Jack decided an outside activity would be just the ticket. He got a good campfire going, some hotdogs roasting, (along with some burgers too!) and I was grateful to just sit back and enjoy the cool night around the fire. Of course Jack laughed at my jacket and laughed again as I eventually went inside and brought out a blanket to wrap up in...I'm a wuss...sorry! But it was fun and relaxing and it led into a great rest of the long weekend. The computer room painting would wait until Monday when I had some time off to finish it.
I finished off my meal with a roasted marshmellow...How do you take yours? I love mine on the burned side but you can have it your way on the just warmed and soft side!
Sunday turned into a rainy, cool day and I decided to bake and cook a few things...like these tastey chocolate nut loaves and then I just continued with these items:
Homemade veggie soup. These will make dinner on Monday and lunches for me all week..I love homemade soup!
Today was a rare gift. I had the day off due to low census. It made my weekend longer and I was able to sleep in a bit. I got up around 7ish and headed outdoors to walk around and enjoy the misty, cool morning.
In the back yard the sun is just getting over the Creepy Woods...Oh, please don't laugh at my tiny garden. We planted very late and decided to only do tomatoes and green peppers. They are growing nicely and we've had a few tomatoes...but it does look silly in that big yard!
This little monster is just one sweet potato vine..just one..grows like crazy!
My trip around the yard wouldn't be complete without seeing these little nasties back again. Web worms....they make these sacks full of worms that coat the branches of the trees. They don't go on the pine trees..thankfully. If I would remember to try and treat the trunks in the spring, I might not have to look at them...Yucky!
Besides painting the computer room I decided I would shampoo the livingroom carpet. I'm moving out furniture and I turn and see Eddy...I think he thought it was for him..a completely cleared out room with just the sun pouring in for him to bask in. That would be a big NO...he did make an exit when the machine fired up.
What's Squeak's take on the whole dog thing? She could care less..she's a cat...we are her slaves.
As I sat in my freshly painted computer room I looked out the window to my left and saw the last spec of this day and my long weekend come to a close...goodnight!
