I have a feeling that for the month of November my Weekend Updates may be really boring! I have a feeling I am kinda nesting. It is getting really cold here, and my friend Lynn even got some snow in New Hampshire! So I will try and spare you from too much boredom!
Friday: After work I was so tired I was practically falling asleep at my desk, so once I got home I took Seamus for a walk, then poured myself a glass of champagne. I am trying a few new brands in preparation for New Years. Never to early to start taste testing, right?! It was decent but don’t think it will make the cut. I also got caught up on my shows that I DVR’d.
Saturday: I can’t say that I took many pictures because I was crazily getting stuff done. I hit some shopping first thing in the morning. First it was to the Christmas Tree Shop to snag a Christmas present for someone. I then went to A.C. Moore for a few supplies for cake decorating class. I then went to the Dollar Tree to pick up some storage bins. I ended up getting about 20 of them. I am using them for my pantry, for my basement, and for my toiletry closet.
After a few hours of doing laundry, cleaning my bathroom, baking cakes for my last cake decorating class (insert sad face), dusting every available surface in my house, and cleaning my humidifiers I watched the movie Mud (with Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon) while re-designing my blog header and sidebar. What do you think of the changes?
Sunday: I tried to hit the grocery store early because Sunday is always a little crazy. Then I had to rake my lawn. In my town the month of November is the only time when they pick up leaves curbside so I have to get it done since I refuse to put them in my car and take it to the dump. After about an hour I filled up 9 bags and ran out so I will have to resume next weekend. Did I mention I don’t have any trees in my yard??? This is all from neighbors trees or overhang from neighbors trees!! (Update: Getting into my car this morning there was a ton of leaves covering what I managed to rake up! 🙁
I then had to make more icing for my class and do a crumb coat on the cakes I made earlier. I put together a new recipe too for Homemade Sausage Stuffing. It was really good, and of course I’ll be sharing the recipe.
The night was filled with dishes, and more dishes and watching some tv while writing a few blog posts. I do not know how people do it! I am just one person and a dog household and I feel like my whole weekend is full of cleaning.
When do you clean?
How do you balance fun with getting chores done?
