Friday night was a bday party for Henry and that was nice but my back was killing from my workout and I was bone tired from everything during the week. We got home and we went to bed pretty early after I managed to sit with the heated shiatsu massager.
Saturday we all slept in. It was glorius and I sat and red in bed for a while and drank hand delivered coffee. Got up and made breakfast for myself, watched some Agents of SMASH with Benton and then I started in on the cleaning of the hutch, dishes, kitchen cleaning etc. In the afternoon we started moving things into the hutch and wow. We cleaned out a few cabinets of "precious but not used very often" items (ones that didn't get purged) and got it settled. Its so nice. Mel got the music cabinet reglued and we moved things around so the 16th century cabinet is next to the hutch and the feast gear basket stores underneath it. We also got all of the DVDs deboxed and set up on the new rack mel made. It will have an upper section the same size so we can get rid of the crappy $20 pieces I bought long ago. Then I had Ben put his skylanders in a larger basket that had a handle that folded down and got rid of a different basket to the goodwill pile. Mel's and I's skylanders got a dvd box for storage and my infinity figures got the same treatment. Its so nice to see all of the movies in one spot. Very enlightening on what we do own and what we don't own. Ben was a trooper and even though mom and dad were busy he was awesome and kept content all day. We spoiled him after dinner with another epidsode of Johnny Quest. I went grocery shopping late Saturday night to get lunch stuff for us. After I got back I cleaned through all of my sewing stuff and threw out old things, put like things with like etc. I also went through my yarn stash and I need to purge it but I reorganized it so I could see it. I have enough sock yarn to make 40 pairs of distinct socks (eep). Though I have some folks who need some stash so I will be giving things away. YAY!
Sunday dawned early. The girls and I had a breakfast date at Prep and Pastry before drawing. We met Willa there and had a grand time. Mel went to war practice and the kiddos kept themselves occupied at our house.
My drawing is showing marked improvement. I looked at my sketchbook from almost 1 year ago with the same model and its a vast difference. Yay!!!!
Got home and picked up more stuff and took a lunch break after drawing and then I started in on the making the front room completed. I called for help to Wander since I needed picture hanging help (like, placement and please hand me that, while on the piano etc). We moved almost all of the pictures in the family room and almost all in the front room. Rearranged things in the hallway and in general figured things out. The antique singer does not want to be a dumping ground and put a nice lantern on it. That just leaves me to find spaces somewhere for all of the pictures that didn't have frames we could hang. I got ride of more frames but I made rework some to hang elsewhere. The last bit I did was move the dining table 90°. I didn't think there was space but there is and the bottle neck is bigger than near the piano. Plus, if we are diligent we can remove a leaf from teh table when not in big use and get more space. It completely changes the room. We are so adult and the green walls look more defined now which is neat.
Bridget and the kiddos came over to watch Ben for the holiday and I got a few errands ran before work. All nice and easy for being 1.25hours late to work. Part of the cleaning we deboxed my Funko POP! figures and I brought them to work. I can't take a picture but as I type the Coulson bobble head rattles...lol. So cool.
On the docke this week is more gym time. Finishing the studio so I can work on Crown clothes (and other misc sewing projects/repairs) and gaming on Friday. Plus we get the hitch on the van on Friday and the car goes in for maintenance on Saturday. Busy week.
