…because it’s 8:30 am and I’m bored. THIS is why I never got any blogging done before working here — I was never bored at B&C! (If there’s time to lean, there’s time to clean…always.)
So yesterday was pretty productive, and I want to keep that trend going this week if I can. Here’s what I did yesterday. I’m writing this to alleviate my own boredom, mind you, so no one should expect this to be an interesting entry. You’ve been warned.
On my lunch, I went to Ross and got some new throw pillows for my couch, because when Katie was over last Saturday she declared that it was high time for me to get a new one. Since getting a new couch is a hell of a lot of trouble (especially when one of my goals in life is to have a nice leather couch – the type that would sort of match my leather chair – and those are not only expensive but also easy for cats to destroy) ……um, because of those things, I decided to continue to make do with the couch I currently have, and replace my old, ratty-looking throw pillows! So I got new ones, and re-arranged 50% of the living room yesterday evening. Just to switch things up. The couch is now underneath the window, which is a place it’s been before, but not for a while.
Um, anyway. So also on my lunch break I dropped off a load of towels, and then picked them up after work when I went to borrow the lawn mower. And then I mowed the lawn. I did not die, which was great, and my lawn definitely looks better this morning. Which I don’t really care about, but meh. Neat is usually better than messy, and it was messy.
After cleaning the living room and showering, I got some work done on that quilt. Finished piecing the top on Sunday, so yesterday I cut out shapes for the applique. Which I have never done. But I’m not nervous – it’ll be easy. I’m thinking I’m going to hand quilt it which will not be easy, but that’s ok. I have time. (Sure wish I could have brought my iron to work today so I could continue to work on them….)
Here is that aforementioned boring list. I almost forgot about it. It’s a list of what I want to accomplish the rest of this week —
I need to dye my hair
And get it cut? It’s getting awfully long….
I want to bleach my duvet cover…ugh.
And clean the whole bedroom, which would necessitate either doing about 5 loads of laundry or finding a place to hide it all.
Want to rearrange my pictures in the library and bedroom. I got some cool Sidney Paget prints at the Sherlock Holmes museum and right now they’re propped up rather pitifully on a window sill. I want to put those on the wall in the library, and move all my matted photographs to the bedroom. This will take some time. I might not get it done this week. We’ll see.
Oh yeah, and I need to go grocery shopping. This is something I have managed to put off for a couple of weeks – which really is just as well since that means I actually finish all my veggies and stuff before going to get more food.
I wonder if I would get in trouble if I started reading at my desk. Probably. Dammit.
