Glimpse of my rainy day endeavors. As you can see, its a bunch of experimenting at this point.
Fun times. What about you? Any hobbies you're working on these days?
This week will hopefully be a productive one. Hubby and I have a date to move Sam's dresser into the garage and I'm hoping to finish painting the basement stairwell (oh joy). I'm also hoping to get my bedroom painted a nice beach-y/cottage-y color (Salty Tear) AND I want to get a raised bed kit ordered for outside. That doesn't even scratch the surface of my to-do list, but it will make me feel like things are underway, at least.
Let's see. What else do I need to do?
Paint the bathroom and I've got a good idea what I want to do, thanks to this bathroom paint job I saw on Young House Love.
Pick a color for Sam's dresser. PRONTO. Honestly, what do you guys think about green? The walls are now ALL white in there and the room is in need of some COLOR!
Weed (can you even believe the weeds are ALREADY growing?).
Order gravel for the garden, next to the house, and the driveway so we don't have so much weed wacking to do.
Order mulch for all my beds.
Come up with a plan for the front of the house.
Wish I could do list
Buy a new screen door
Put in a patio
Finish the attic
Enlarge my house by about 600 square feet:) and move it to the woods.
How do you feel about that:)
Whats goin on with you all? Any fun news/plans for the future?
Hope all is well. I'll be back at cha again soon:)

I have to admit, I'm recovering a little from the late night, myself. The rain has been a nice little excuse for me to sit here and play with my watercolor set. I'm just trying to get a feel for them. I also did a little image search because I like to learn by looking at other people's work. Thought you might like to see, too.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I'm laying low, I think. I may lug Sam's dresser out and do some to-do list ninja, but I'm not entirely convinced.
Have a great one.

Finally made the pretzel recipe I got from Sloe Gin Fizz and they were a hit! Very, very good and not too difficult. I did make a major goof (cold butter instead of melted) and they turned out alright- so I guess that means these are semi idiot proof:) I'm looking forward to trying them again, the right way this time, and noting the difference.
Enjoy the weather!

|those poor curtains didn't know what was coming.|
The second is a video demonstration (yes please) making a bean bag out of old t-shirts (super cool idea, btw). It is from this video that I learned that foam core can be cut up and used as filling. Are you serious, Clark? I happen to have one of those chillin' out in my basement doing NOTHING. That little bit of wisdom is what sealed the deal for me. After that I was a woman on a mission.
I happen to have a bunch of blue denimish fabric since I've decided not to use floor length curtains in Sam's "new" room and for awhile it was between making a teepee or a bean bag with it. The second finally won out mainly due to space constraints (but so help me, we WILL have a teepee if we EVER move:) But I think the bag is equally cute and fun.
Have a splendid Monday, folks.

We were each occupied
I with cleaning (blah)
he was listening to Winnie the Pooh on tape (OH I was, too... I LOVE the silly old bear)
while playing with cars
I saw him get up, lug the stool from the bathroom,
it was an awkward maneuver,
and without any prompting from me
he watered the sprouts very conscientiously.
