Busy, Busy

Last weekend I think I did more before noon than I've done in the last couple of weeks put together. Ok, so I'm exaggerating a bit, but it certainly didn't feel like it when I kept checking the clock Saturday morning expecting it to be lunchtime.

Over the weekend we:

  • attached more tile to the fireplace
  • weeded the back yard
  • pruned the trees (This is my favorite part. I love getting out there with the shears and lopping bits off.)
  • cut blackberries
  • prepped and painted the floor trim
  • cut tile to ready it for attaching to the fireplace

Next steps are to:

  • order the rest of the tile (seems we managed to waste more than I'd planned on) and finish attaching it
  • cut the tape from the walls around the trim and do necessary touching up (never use blue painters tape on paint you want to stay attached)
  • arrange the furniture

We're getting so close to being done, I can see it!
