just a boring list

…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.
