The Weekend Past

Home is where you can say anything you like cause nobody listens to you anyway. ~Author Unknown

Happy Monday all! It's President's Day (who else remembers when George Washington and Abraham Lincoln got their own holiday?) and my DH is off work -- for all the good it does him.

This weekend he's been tied to his work pager. I try to remember to be grateful that he has a job, and a very good job at that, but there are times I really, really hate it. He works very long hours, and he works very hard AND he has a long, traffic-filled commute. So he needs his weekends to decompress. This weekend, he didn't get that.

Still, he's managed to fill his home time by doing renovations to his bathroom that we've been planning for a long time. He's been picking up the stuff for it over the last several months, so it was ready. He did much of it yesterday, but will finish laying the tile today.

Next project is hardwooding our stairs. The carpet is so thin in places that we're afraid it's going to tear soon. The joys of home ownership...

How was your weekend?


I haven't been able to say this in a while (for which I am truly grateful): It's snowing!

We aren't expecting much: 2 - 4", and it's the light, fluffy kind so I really don't mind. Besides, I know spring is on its way ... my woodpile is almost gone. AND, the warm weather actually melted nearly all the snow in the gardens directly in front of our house (it COOKS there), so I may even have daffodils in March, which is very unusual.

I'm so ready for spring.


Your Style is Bohemian

When it comes to fashion, anything goes for you... especially if it's whimsical and fun.

You draw your style influences from all over, and you are a pro at mixing and matching.

You believe that fashion rules are meant to be broken. You don't need anyone to tell you what looks good.

You rock your own unique and free spirited style. And many people secretly envy you for it.

My own unique and free spirited style is called: comfy jeans and T-shirts. I know, crazy!! *G*

I remember having both Washington and Lincoln's birthday off and it was their actual birth date.

My weekend was quiet. Did some reading; some quilting; some book shopping; and some TV watching.

We have snow too, most likely 1-2 inches will fall.

Your Style is Classic

You want clothes that will stand the test of time, and you're willing to invest in quality pieces.

You don't fall for trends, and you don't change your style very often.

You know what looks flattering on you, and you stick to it. People can count on you to be well dressed.

When you want to change things up, you'll experiment with some color and accessories. You know a little goes a long way.

This is 80% accurate.

Have a great Monday.

Don't get me started on holidays. lol

You should post pictures of your remodeling. I love to see renovations. It gives me ideas. :)

It’s raining here, and I’m not complaining. Although they say that soon the rain will turn into ice, and that I don’t like.

I agree with Maria, you should post pics of your remodeling.

We've been having spotty showers today. Bleah.

I'm not saying a word about the weather here. You'll dislike me. I know how you feel about your hubs job, that's how I feel about my hubs.
I too request pics of the renovation!
My quiz results were the same as yours. And so wrong! I prefer yoga pants or capris and t-shirts (long and short-sleeve.)
Hope you had a good weekend and a delightful day!
