Weekend Hangover

Hi all. It's been brought to my attention that I haven't blogged for several days and people were starting to worry about me. Please don't worry if I don't blog for a few days, it just means I'm busy or I don't have anything interesting to say!! Both of which were true over the past weekend. We were out on the town Saturday- went up to Atlanta for dinner here, and a movie, and didn't get home until 2:30 in the morning, been awhile since we've been out like that!

But Sunday morning we got up and walked our 10K trail again (below), then spent the evening out doing a little bit of shoe shopping on our tax-free weekend here in Georgia, and stoppin
g in at a local pizza joint. Lucky for my diet, I didn't like the pizza too much...

James and I stayed busy with a few small household projects while we were home, like the one below, where James is adding new shelves in the laundry room for all our cleaning supplies. He took down the old one, and will be putting up two new ones when it's all finished. It will also give me an area where I can hang up the clothes as I take them out of the dryer, which I was in desperate need of.

My project that I've been working on lately is the photo below. This is an old weathervane we picked up for $5 at an estate sale back in Charlotte. I've had it for about two years now, and have been meaning to get it fixed up. I had to sand off a lot of rust, and I primed it with two coats, so now it's ready to get painted and hopefully will be out on the back deck by next weekend. I just thought it was way too cute and unique, and no one else bid against us for it, so it will be worth the time and effort of repairing and repainting it. Of course you know the cat will be black...

The veggie plants are finally producing, and I picked all of this within the last few days. Lots of peppers, I don't know what I will do with them all! James ate one of the jalapenos this weekend, said it was really good. The plants are still loaded down with soon to be ripe items, so I will need to get a recipe shortly so I can use everything. I thought about making homemade salsa, I had a friend back in SC who did, and it was better than anything I'd ever had out of a bottle. Yes Dawn, that is one of my many Longaberger baskets, I still own and use all of them as I'm sure you do, too.

Not much else going on with us. I'm getting ready to head off to my first yoga class at the new gym, then Romeo has his yearly checkup at the vet. Since he is one of the better behaved cats, I don't have to chase him down and put him in a crate- he can go in on his harness and leash, which isn't so traumatic. Plus he is such a lovebug, he enjoys all the attention from strangers. Here are the kitties from the other night, devouring a spoonful each of tuna fish- their favorite treat.


  1. Aww, love the picture w/all the kitties!

    I think people were worried about you because you were so sad in your last post. Glad you were busy and having fun!

  2. You know I can spot a Longaberger a mile away! I use mine every day - although people do look at me strangely when I carry the large market basket into Publix. I think they improve with age!

  3. Wow, that resturant in "Hot-Lanta" looks tough. Hope you did not get mugged.....Glad you are back....Stay Back!
