I’m scrambling to get this post done as it’s already the middle of the afternoon on my Fox day. A free topic post should be easy, right?
Well, maybe not after having family visit and running a marathon over the weekend. Lots of topics are available, but the time to write about any of them was not. So here’s just a quick sum up of the highlights because I need to pick my kids up from school in about 5 minutes.
Mom and Dad were able to help me re-cover the dining room chairs on a set they had purchased in the Seventies. I hope the new upholstery lasts forty more years because I don’t want to have to pull out all those staples again.
I found an armoire to convert to a sewing cabinet, so I can move my sewing machine out of the dark alcove upstairs. My husband said we could maybe install skylights in the alcove, but that wouldn’t be until the roof is redone (a task I’m hoping is later rather than sooner), so hopefully he can make the necessary adjustments to the cabinet sooner rather than later.
I ran a marathon. During which I decided that was the last marathon I would do. It was miserable. Hot. Humid. I was dizzy and not sure I would finish at all. I missed my goal time by almost an hour. So yes, today, I was looking at a fall marathon. There’s something wrong with me.
I learned how to play foursquare. I still don’t know all the rules, but my eight-year-old can kick my butt.
So it was a wonderful weekend (except for 4 hours and 21 minutes of it.) Hope yours was as well.
