Ah, lazy Sunday. Saturday night I got a cleaning bee in my bonnet and tackled the bathroom and kitchen with a toothbrush (well, several rags), as well as a pitch through the closets to attempt to rid myself of a few sweaters and shirts that I never wear anymore (as well as gain a few inches to put away things I wear far too much). All the while I was glancing at the plants that are looking a bit thirsty, but that I am refusing to water until Monday (so they will make it through to the following Monday when I get back from a little Thanksgiving jaunt down South), and wishing I would have had the weekend to clean the entire apartment. Alas, the ceiling is still awaiting it's final coat of plaster, and the Dining Room is currently a storage facility for the Living Room furniture. I am now focusing on tomorrow, when I can get a bucket, a rag, and tackle the Living Room floor before putting everything back.
Today, therefore, I slept in a little (though not until 2, as some people will tell you I do), and then, well, did a few things...
|At last a chance to flip through the Zingerman's catalog. I had my coffee with me, but the Times had to wait.|
|Also discovered more of the "shoved in" poppies. They may finally begin spreading around the Garden a bit.|
|I'm not really a crafter, but I just love all these different packages for Holiday treats.|
|Great labels! I still have a stockpile of Martha Stewart wrapping paper from K-Mart, but the stockpile of tags has disappeared. Time to replenish!|
|Great coasters. These could even be tucked in with a bottle of wine as a hostess gift.|
|Even sheets of tissue paper perfect for dividing up the treats in the boxes. I ended up getting some window clings...but you'll have to wait until the Penthouse gets decorated to see those.|
|5 yards of burlap purchased, and Sunday's gardening was over.|
|I came home and had a salad, most likely the last of the year. Just drizzled a little oil and balsamic vinegar on it, and some crumbled goat cheese.|
