Today I am full of gratitude
I am such a lucky girl
this week-end was not a kick back and relax kind of week-end
we had plans ~ big plans
and we hit it head on Friday morning
last winter I redid the master bedroom
new quilt ~ paint ~ headboard ~ curtains
it was completed except for flooring and a ceiling fan
we finally found flooring in August
but never got a chance to lay it until now
so Friday was prep day
empty the room
pull up the carpet
sneeze clean sneeze
holy crap ~ it was nasty
I pulled up all the staples and Trev worked on the old baseboards
then it was his turn.
Saturday we had a little surprise on our doorstep
the flowers in the first shot
I truly do love them
I told Trev if we ever win the lottery and build our dream house
we will have to make sure we build them one next door!
This stuff did not go down as easy as the stuff we got for the hall
and other bedrooms
but it looks nice ~ love the darker shade and the wider plank style
of the boards
so now with it almost complete
I am on the search for a new fan
wish me luck!
so while he was sawing
I decided to do some sewing
I had a piece of an old quilt from the farm and a blanket
that I remember being snuggled up in as a child
a little bit of thread and a couple of cheap pillows
and voila ~ a cushion with loads of history
oh the stories it could tell
I actually made 2 but only had enough batting to fill one
so the other one will get stuffed as soon as I get to the store
after all ~ all the hard stuff is done!
we awoke on
Christmas Easter morning to snow!
not real impressed but at least it will not hang around for long now
I made my favorite brunch of Eggs Benedict
we relaxed a bit
then packed up some wine and dessert
and headed to Trev's cousins for Easter dinner
there were 14 of us gathered round 2 tables
drinking wine ~ eating great food and laughing
I love to laugh!
So I am filled up with love, food and laughter
we had a great week-end
I hope you did too
what did you do ~ I would love to hear??
Have a great week!
