Although things have been quiet here on the blog, the same can’t be
said for the homestead.
This past week/weekend we had a little flurry of company, including
two overnight guests, and a few other social engagements (visitors,
dinners, drinks, etc.) that kept us hopping.
We went on a bit of a shopping spree on Saturday. The new curtains and
blinds set the whole thing off and now we’re expecting new furniture
to be delivered on Friday. We also purchased a new, colorful area rug
for the living room. In our defense, we promised ourselves to wait a
whole year after moving in before doing any major furniture shopping,
and we stuck to it. But that year is up and we’ve hit the ground
running. Although we desperately need lawn and yard furniture, we
started with the living room. New furniture will go in there, and the
old furniture will (hopefully) fit through the basement door so we
have something to lounge on to watch stuff on our big screen TV, which made
its way down to the basement last year last year. We still need a
coffee table/end table set, a buffet style cabinet for the kitchen,
patio furniture and a few things for our guest rooms/offices up
stairs, as well as bedside tables for our master bedroom. And then
there’s the painting we have left to finish. There will be no shortage
of redecorating at the Acres this year, for sure.
Work continues to be abysmal. ‘nuff said.
I finally caught up on everyone’s blogs this past weekend. I tried to
sprinkle comments around so you all know I stopped by. I do read all
of your posts, but I don’t always get to them every day. And since I’m
usually reading them on my iPhone, I still have some problems
commenting from it. I have to update my blogroll with all the new
blogs I’m following – hopefully I’ll get to that this weekend. I also
need to find a new way to read all of your blogs, as Google Reader is
on its way out *sniff.*
Spring has finally sprung and I have been enjoying walking out in the yard, with the dogs, in shorts, tee shirt and bare (bear) feet. I love watching the dogs run around and play outside almost as much as I love running around and playing outside.
I seem to have picked up a stomach bug somewhere, maybe from reading Erik’s blog. I don’t know where all this stuff is coming from, but I should be down a good 50 pounds by tomorrow morning if this all keeps up.
That’s all for now…
