We spent most of today doing some mid-winter cleaning, and boy does it feel good. Ok. so some parts of the house are still a little…iffy, but Paul’s clothing situation is much improved, as is the craft room. (I even spent part of the afternoon whipping up a new apron which my husband requested. No really, my husband asked for his own apron, that way he can keep his shirts dry while he does the dishes..what a guy I snagged!)
The crafting room is looking great, guys. All my buttons are in the button jar, all my thread is in the thread drawer… and all the yarn is all over my freakin’ house… but sort of contained to the couch and the craft room. At least I crammed all that was upstairs into the set of Rubbermaid drawers, which are now full to the point of bursting. I may need to invest in a 3rd set of drawers for my yarn (and I have a huge Rubbermade tub full of yarn too. Yikes.) I was just thinking that I may need to do a yarn purge sometime this year, and just cut my losses and give it away… but then I get to thinking about it, and change my mind because I think of all of the wonderful projects I can make with it all. So I guess I’ll hang onto it for now.
So, all in all it was a productive day. Even got a good walk in. Oh, did I mention that the snow melted? Like ALL of the snow! No, really! It’s amazing, guys, it’s almost like that first day when you realize spring is just around the corner… except, it’s totally not. We’re just seeing a temporary mid-winter lull in the snow flurries, they’ll be back before we know it, and we’ll eventually see spring, sure, but it won’t be for another 3 -4 months. Sigh. But we did enjoy a brisk walk in the balmy 45 degree weather today, even if it was really windy.
This evening we are going out to dinner with Paul’s parents to celebrate Paul’s dad’s birthday, we’re going out to eat Mexican food (preeeeeetty much my favorite, ever) I hope everyone had a great MLKJ Day and I hope you got the day off, too. If you did have the day off, be a dear and tell me what you did with your free day!
