What makes a perfect weekend for us - when project or chores get done and still get a chance to go out for dinner at the neighbors home and have a great evening. That's what we did this past weekend. We decided to add a pop of color in our House of Common room. After Jeff completed the shutter project, we thought it would be nice to change up some walls and paint it the same red color as the shutters. Once all dry after two coats of paint, we were able to hung some art work, clock, square cube shelves (we bought at a garage sale). While Jeff was painting I did at least 3 loads of laundry (linens and our clothes). Some of the items had to iron, yes you read it right, I still iron.
In addition to the regular chores, I decided to re-upholster the two folding chairs that we brought with us from the old house. There was plenty of material left over from covering the bench cushion, so I use the same fabric for the folding chairs. It is really amazing how much you can do during the weekend if you really set a goal and try to complete as much on your TO-DO list. It was definitely a very meaningful weekend. I was surprised that I was able to include a nap and watch a bit of tennis on TV.
