Happy Saturday!

You gotta love it when a toddler accommodates you with a couple-hour-long afternoon nap. That, a three year old riding in the combine with Papa, and an early morning garage sale find adds up to a pretty great Saturday.

I got these fantastic chairs at a garage sale: chair on the left $15 and rocker on the right $25. They have lots of character and, although two of the spindles on the rocker are loose, I love them!

Now as the little man is sleeping I am hustling around dusting and organising. Excuse the poor photo, but the new-old chair is perfect for my entryway. Hope everyone is having a happy, productive Saturday!

Updates and More Lists

I love a good list. On my typical shopping list there is also a list of which stores to go to in order--to avoid backtracking and getting caught in awful traffic in town. These days it seems that for every item crossed off a list, two or three take its place. Happily, getting HOT WATER and a working STOVE are now on the "accomplished" side of the list. It makes it much easier to tackle our daily tasks when I am not boiling water for washing on the single burner I also need for cooking.

I had a list of things to do this past weekend. We accomplished a lot and have the house seeming less cluttered and it is starting to feel more like home. The company that built the home had their repairman come out to fix cracks in the drywall. There were only a few and I am glad to have that mess cleaned up. We had a fun day at the lake with friends and Husband and I managed a date night. All in all, it was nice to be together and if we might have done more work on the list, I would not want that at the expense of our time together.
