I remember we said we were going to get the house back in order...
Yeah...that didn't happen.
It's not that we didn't want to. Or that we didn't attempt to. But you know how you redo your space and realize, "holy crap, without all of the pictures taking up most of the armoire space, we have no decor." Well, Fall decorating season is basically a week away and I wasn't going to decorate for our "regular" look and then take it all down in a week so we had to look for autumn accoutrements. Luckily I knew of a few places that had a plethora of items and after lots of internet searches as well as some local shopping, I got goodies.
But first, I had to decorate the armoire for the "after" pic on how I re-purposed that particular one so that started at 11:30pm on Saturday because obviously, I'm insane. Earlier that evening, I had to buy D rings for a window that is getting hung and then I spied some cone flowers in gorgeous Fall colors and well, those had to be bought. It was a moral imperative. Darnedest thing though, the middle part poked me pretty hard and I had an allergic reaction to it. So that meant I wouldn't be the one planting them. I'd grown tired of the hodge podge of perennials that we've planted over the years. Some would come back up, others gave me the bird from the great beyond. The Mr transplanted the hostas to the back and got the new plants in the ground. Now we must remember to water them. Mmm hmm.
There was an autumn mantel project that sounded so easy when I thought of it and I got going on it and it took ALL day Sunday (in between doing other things) and I could sense the Mr's disappointment but I wasn't going to move the table back in only to sprawl out crafting materials on it. We still need to let it cure for a week so VERY light eating on it then nothing else.
The Mr was helping some friends of ours with computer issues and when he came back, I had dinner ready for him...
Turkey burger that shrunk up to the size of a slider (look how ridiculous that normal sized bun looks!) stuffed with a laughing cow and a grilled half sweet potato with a slight drizzle of coconut syrup. Twas delish!
I'm hoping we'll have better luck this week getting the house back together because I'm mentally just done.
How was your weekend?
