this weekend was SO PRODUCTIVE i could just puke rainbows and glitter*.
i took down the crappy 90s medicine cabinet in my bathroom, sanded up the weird spots, painted the walls “olive” (it’s more like light moss green), and put up new towel racks and a mirror that i spray-painted off white. now it’s like a new bathroom, and i don’t hate the maple cabinetry in there. i might leave it.
pulled out my fall decor and finally set it out. i think the leaves outside finally prompted me to get moving on that; it’s been pretty green here lately until just a couple days ago. sure, the maples turned two weeks ago or so, but everything else held onto their chlorophyll pretty good. then suddenly, it was like every deciduous tree decided to just turn a little yellow overnight, and suddenly it’s fall. and suddenly, i’m ok with it being fall. i’m not looking forward to 92 months of winter, but i will enjoy the 2-3 weeks of fall we get before heading down that route.
the weather was great this weekend. both days were upper 60s and sunny, so yesterday i spent some quality time in the hammock while my paint was drying, then today i picked a lot of stuff out of my garden and then went for a fantastic run this evening. i’ve got a ton of pie pumpkins to cook up and some squash, a few tomatoes, and a ton of basil to do something with. in other news, we’re expecting a frost tonight, so it was time to clear out everything that isn’t winter hardy (the brussels sprouts will be ready soon! they’re always better after a couple frosts).
in other news, i need to mow my lawn.
i went to pier 1 this afternoon and FINALLY bought a new set of plates. i’ve been waffling over new plateware for three years. i found a great-looking set on amazon for cheapo, but it came with those dumb flat soup bowls (who uses those?) and got horrible reviews (apparently they are prone to chipping). so i headed over to pier 1 and found a set on clearance. picked up all the dinner plates, salad plates, and two bowls. i’m going to check online to see if i can find at least two more bowls.
now it’s time for some t-bone steak and mashed cauliflower (that’s nate’s choice).
the only thing that would have made this weekend super duper awesome is if the sun were out another hour and a half and i could go spend some time on the SUP at st. john’s. it might be time to deflate it. D;
