Weekend Update

The heat soared this weekend however it was the humidity that made it feel like we were being baked in our livingroom.  Our air conditioner acted more as a fan and only gave relief if you stood directly in front of it.  However, considering not all people have an air conditioner, I will not complain (too much).

I was extremely grateful when the sky darkened early Saturday morning and we got some much-needed rain; and so were my flowers.


As I began to walk from room to room, sipping my cup of coffee, I noticed a flash out of the corner of my eye….and then another not so quick flash following.  It would appear that my little man had himself a sidekick and much to Molly’s delight they ran from room to room chasing down stuffed animals bad guys and locking them up in my white hamper that was transformed into a holding cell.

Jason and I tackled several rooms in the house moving, building, transforming and generally making more of a mess but since this is a work in progress we aren’t to upset with the outcome. In the meantime, JBear was DIY’ing is next superhero costume; Aquaman! 

Sure it was only a pair of toy safety goggles but I could totally see where he was going with it and I absolutely loved it!  He also fashioned a Riddler costume out of pajamas and have a curtain rod with a swirl end on it; however I was told that the Riddler doesn’t get his picture taken so all I have (for now) are blurs as he ran by.

How was your weekend? Any progress on your Pintrest Challenge or visits from caped crusaders?

What To Do? What To Do? What To Do?

I usually drive up to the Great White North on weekends to visit/help my mom, get some chuckles in with my bro and sisters, and fill my tank with the occasional (more times than not) home-made pizza or heaping dish of polenta.

This weekend, I will be hunkering down and working on the ol’ homestead. Pass up pizza and polenta for house work??? Now that’s just crazy talk! But desperate times call for desperate measures. 😉 

Moving on, what to do this weekend??? The possibilities are endless and my worst quality (I know, more crazy talk 😉 ) is biting off more than I can chew.   So this weekend I will be concentrating on finishing up the front porch, working on the upstairs bathroom and since there is not nearly enough on my plate as it is, I have decided to partake in this year’s Pintrest Challenge hosted by a great group of ladies from four other blogs: Sherry from Young House Love, Katie from Brower Power, Kate from Centsational Girl, and Michelle of Ten JuneThe contest ends on July 10th so I will be busy creating my masterpiece and the post that will accompany that.

What are your plans this weekend? Anyof you partaking in the Pintrest Challenge? Or perhaps catching up on some much needed zzzzz’s?

Hold On To Your Britches….

Things are really picking up.  Not only are we working on the renovations to our home, but we have also started to go through room by room, purging what we don’t use and organizing what we do use. 

Remember the nightmare post? It wasn’t pretty that’s for sure.  So we ended up moving the front porch up on our “To Do” list. 

Lets take a little look-see at the progress we’ve made. Here are the before pictures one more time:

Now I must give credit where credit is due.  Here is the progress we have made on our front porch with many thanks to my loving husband who braved the sweltering heat to clean the porch and keep his wife happy. 😀

We are still toying with the idea of staining or painting the floor. Plus the table will be relocated to the kitchen (as a prep area of sorts) and the extra white paint will be returned to the store.  Now that we (meaning Jason) cleaned the porch, we can moved forward with possibly painting the bench, adding sheer curtains and relocating the beauties below outside.

More to come so stay tuned.
