Nothing big happening at the house. Over the weekend I worked at a ton of little things. I installed the closet organizer in my bedroom. That took the better part of Saturday. I was so careful in what I picked out but I still have too many clothes that need to be in there for the size of the closet. That's the problem with these 50 year old houses - never enough closet space! I think I need to look into buying a chest of drawers for the bedroom. I only own a dresser with a mirror. I did have a plan years and years ago to buy more to the set but Ethan Allen where I purchased my furniture discontinued the line I was buying. Now I can't find anything to match it. So I guess I need to start to look for something that complements it rather than matches it. I still need to purchase the new doorknobs for the door and the bathroom door and paint my switch plate covers - maybe next weekend. I also started working on my lawns. The front lawn is about 50% weeds so put down a weedkiller and I'll de-thatch and put down seed in a couple of weeks. The backyard is also mostly weeds but because of the dogs I can't put down any chemicals. So I spent around three hours pulling dandelions - I'm about 25% done with that job. I'll be at it all summer for sure! There are also a ton of old flower beds all on the perimeter of the backyard. I can't stand such regulated plantings and three of the four hardly had anything left in them so I pulled two out. It was pretty easy - I just had to pick up the bricks outlining the beds and turn them over and plant new grass seed. At this point I'd rather mow them than find money to replant them.
So again my weekend wasn't very restful. I wonder if that will ever happen again? A weekend where I don't have a ton of work to do. Maybe someday. :-)
