the weekend that was

The tulips joined their friends the daffodils, hyacinths and crocuses in bloom.

+

I changed a vacuum belt by myself. People who do these types of things regularly, do not scoff at my achievement or you will stomp on my joy.

+

Spring cleaning, most of which I hate, such as cleaning window treatments, mattresses, bedskirts and mattress pads, scrubbing carpets, cleaning baseboards, and moving furniture.  
Cleaning well weekly makes this less cumbersome, which was good because MFD worked all day Saturday and Sunday so I was on my own. Thank you cleaning gene. I did not purge MFD's favorite plate (from the Dollar Store), even though I have the urge to purge it daily.
One of these things is not like the others
+

I shared this with some friends and thought I'd share it here since tupperware is such a troll to organize. This is the only way I've found over the years that has staying power.
These are stored side by side in a cabinet.

+

Unfortunate side effect of spring cleaning: the death of MFD's bedside lamp,
part of a matching pair I spent many moons searching for a few years back.
The quest will soon commence for one to complement the widow.

+

Labeling the bejesus out of everything with my new label maker


+

Awful less than five hours of sleep on Friday remedied with nearly 11 hours of sleep on Saturday

+
New recipes - jalapeno quiche for this week's breakfasts, broccoli quinoa casserole for this week's lunches, and a stellar skinny broccoli chicken alfredo for Sunday dinner
(all recipes made with some modifications, let me know if you want them)

+

A trip to one of my favorite places on earth, the library

+
A trip to Bottom Dollar Foods - have you checked out their produce prices? Excellent.

+
Dinner at the Leslie home...a lovely meal with salmon MFD is itching to try making himself, great friends (bonus pop in by Angie & CJ), good wine and champagne, a fabulous red velvet cupcake from Mugshots, and exciting news for Evan, Jenny & Griff - they're starting to house hunt!
I love when good stuff is going on for my friends!!

+

Spring product endorsement - Clarins Gelee Auto-Bronzante Express Self Tanning Instant Gel. It's pricey, but I've had the same bottle for three years. A little dab'll do ya, friends.
+
Catching up on Body of Proof.
Double damn you ABC On Demand for not allowing fast forwarding through commercials.
Stop pushing John Carter, I've heard it sucks even though the super hot Tim Riggins is in it.

+
My final birthday gift to myself, purchased from an etsy shop. Thanks Lori for pinning a variation of it!

the weekend that was

Which explains why most people don't leave Hazzard - don't matter how slow the day starts out - it always picks up in the end.

This Monday is brought to you by Bo & Luke Duke -

p.s. Already this morning I have encountered 587 fools. A guy in a pickup with blue balls hanging from it. A train that was a car short. Lazy slobs sitting next to the door who would not move their arm six inches to close the door that was stuck open after every stop. A kid wearing headphones first in line to exit the train who never heard the door open over his music. A cashier at Dunkin Donuts who could not figure out how to punch my free iced coffee card. A coffee maker at Dunkin Donuts who added tons of cream to my coffee instead of the one that I requested. A man who went around twice in the revolving door of my building before getting out and laughing like a maniac. Deliver me. I hope that's all for today.

Here's ol' Blue.
