[Sunrise on Friday 1.22.21]
Hello Hello! How is your Tuesday going? I hope you’re having a great start to the week! I meant to post this yesterday but life kinda got in the way, in a good + bad way! On Monday I got to see one of my dear friends who I haven’t seen in almost a year #thankyoucoivd. And then when I got home I planned to put the finishing touches on this post and publish it but then I got a migraine and that plan went out the window.
Anyway, I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!! I thought it would be fun to do a run down of what I did this past weekend. When I do this again, and I will ha! I’ll be sure to take more pictures!
Friday was an interesting day. It was my Grandpa’s birthday + he would have been 94. I miss him everyday. I did write a post about him + published it on Friday. And on Thursday my 11 year old puppy Harley, went to see her brother Outlaw in Heaven. To take my mind off the heaviness I did what I also do, did a little retail therapy. Although this trip I didn’t buy anything, I actually returned a lot of stuff. I did try on some pieces but didn’t like them.
I stopped by my Daddee on my way home from the mall to see how he was doing + then went home. I had to take my grandma to a doctor appointment. When we got home I walked down to the mailbox to get the mail. My mailbox isn’t at the end of my driveway, it’s down the road you see in the pictures. I’ve been trying to move my body more + get in touch with nature more so I walk to get the mail instead of drive. The walk to + from is a nice one since it doesn’t take me too long, but going back to my house is up a hill so I get my heart rate up.
I also went to the local Amish market to get my Grandma something + I grabbed yet another bag of Milk Chocolate Nonpareils. I can not stop eating these they are so good! And the funny part is, I don’t even like chocolate that much! After my grandma’s appointment + my walk I was exhausted so I just relaxed at night, planned my day for Saturday. I worked on Sparkle a little. I printed out some documents I needed + retook some product photos that I will share in post soon!
Saturday was a much better day! I spend the early afternoon with my Aunt. We took some photos for Sparkle, talked + put together a piece of exercise equipment. It was a lot of fun with a lot of laughs which is just what I needed! I also got to chat with my cousin who I haven’t seen in forever. Then I did some more retail therapy at Hobby Lobby. I got paint + brushes to paint the legs of a desk I don’t like the color of, some books, and clips to fix the strap on a bag that broke. I also went to Khol’s to do an Amazon return for me + my Daddee.
When I got home, way later than I expected I shoveled dinner in my mouth, did a load of laundry and then ended up vacuuming, cleaning the glass + mirrors downstairs + washed the kitchen floor. I had plans to go through my clothes + see what I wear the most, haven’t worn in a while and what fits. The older I get the more my body changes and to be honest its really freaking annoying.
To be honest, after Friday’s shopping disaster I was and to be honest still am feeling pretty low + crappy about my body image so I wasn’t in the mood or mindset to try on clothes + find out that my favorites don’t fit or look right anymore ya know?
Sunday was another good productive day, probably the most productive I’ve had all weekend ha! I ended up cleaning out the whole refrigerator after midnight on Saturday night. I pull everything out, wiped everything down, washed + dried all the shelves and put everything back. Took about 2 hours lol. Then I vacuumed the upstairs + cleaned all the mirrors + glass, I did the rest of the laundry, including my sheets. Is there anything better than climbing into a freshly made bed with clean sheets? Yes I am officially old ha!
I changed up some of the decor in my room and took my palm plant off the stool it was on and put it in one of those decorative baskets. It is WAY too big but I don’t really mind because it looks okay and I’ll use the basket for blankets or something when I have more space. I’ll link it here. Once I style it better I’ll take pictures.
I also [I think] found a quick solution to fixing a bag strap and I must say I’m very proud of myself ha! Cross your fingers it works!
I bought this desk on Amazon and I’m not a fan of how yellow the legs are, so I painted them today a what I’m hoping is a champagne gold. Cross your fingers that it comes out that color ha! I had to do it in the basement with very poor lightening, at night so it’s a mystery as to how its going to come out ha!
I think the best part of my day was the glorious 3 hour nap I took. I was exhausted from all the cleaning + little sleep I got and I also was freezing. As soon as I got warm it’s lights out Jenny ha! And was the highlights of my weekend ha!
