Weekend wrap-up

Another weekend gone. As they have been lately, it was productive…

Sparks and I are having serious thoughts about things like countertops, floors, and paint colors now. Now is the time. He has the kitchen completely emptied out and also the master bathroom. I believe he has just a few finishing touches left for the guest bathroom. Since we are leaving the powder room intact until those are finished, that means that the demo stage is coming to a close. So we spent some time wandering around at Lowe’s, trying to figure things out.

I did a lot of peaceful crafty things too. I baked a lemon cake, filled with lemon curd, covered in pale yellow icing and piped in white. Unfortunately, it didn’t turn out nearly as pretty as it should have, so no pictures. I did the weekend laundry and the weekend shopping. I cooked a little. We had dinner with friends followed by drinks in their dreamy garden. I crocheted some afghan hexagons… pictures of those when I’ve got a wider range of colors finished. Last night, Sparks made pizza from scratch and we watched about four episodes of Arrested Development. The weekends… they are very nice.

The wedding is winding down (or is it winding up? I’m not sure). Soon, soon, soon.

  1. How the heck are you so productive? I’ve been thinking about redoing my bathroom for about a year now. Does that count as doing something?

  2. Two big factors are probably that there are no kids and we aren’t living in the house that’s being renovated. Sparks does most of the work–it is his hobby right now. He hits it both days on the weekend and a couple of evenings a week.
