Wow, I cannot believe I have been out of school for a week already!
Today is Friday, and I keep having to remind myself of that! I am also having a hard time recalling what I managed to accomplish today! (Just kidding!!)
I slept in (until 8:00)! Janice and I went to the big city of Jackson today.
My vacuum is a bit ill, so I dropped it off to be repaired, then we ventured up to Hancock Fabrics so that Janice could purchase some fabrics for a quilt she is making.
Then we had lunch at Los Portales (the one in Jackson, not the one in Henderson!) and ventured into Lowes so that I could purchase some paint to cover an area on the wall where Vince missed when he painted last.
We did not have the original paint can and I had previously picked up paint strips to see if I could match the color. Today was the first attempt at seeing if we chose correctly. I purchased a sample of that paint, some ceiling paint (as yet another project) and 4 water lily plants for the pond.
When I arrived home, Mom and I threw the lily plants into the pond, I painted the wall (the paint is a really good match!), ordered epiphytes for Rob and Isabel's party, completed two lines of quilting on Torri's Quilt, sorted through some old photographs (anyone have a use for those unwanted ones???), listed a few items on Freecycle, listed a dresser for sale on Craigslist, and started dinner.
It was not as productive a day as I usually have. However, I had a great time with Janice, had a long chat with my cousin Kathleen and played with my dogs.
