Snapshots of the Weekend

Hi everyone! Welcome to my very random Weekend Update.

I had a weekend at home this weekend...so you know cleaning happened!!  I cleaned cat hair off furniture and beds...enough to make a whole new cat - HA HA!

Fun fun fun! 

I was supposed to meet a friend Saturday night for dinner and a meeting but she had to cancel. So, I got more cleaning and organizing done. I also swore I will not stay home another weekend this summer for ANY reason. 

I have to let you know...I get very frustrated with cancellations, especially on weekends! If you say you are going to do something or want to do something...follow through!!!!!

I have a fantastic family and I love to spend any time I have extra with them but I also try to make time with my friends. So, my family really wanted me to come to the lake again this weekend but I explained that I really wanted to check in and spend time with a close friend of mine that I have not been able to see lately. You see where this is headed? So, it is 95 degrees and I could be with my nieces and nephews and siblings and parents in the lake and instead I am stuck home with nothing to do after she cancelled on me for Saturday night by texting on Saturday morning. UGH! 

Okay...enough griping...but seriously people, this is why I don't stay home and hang with friends because they almost 50% of the time cancel and I have nothing to do!!!

So, I created some new pieces for my ETSY store...






And I played with kitties and boxes A LOT!!!!


And I cleaned out the fridge. FRIENDLY NOTE: When cleaning fridge; if you find a huge jar of expired capers, just throw them in the garbage jar and all! I dunped them down my disposal and this happened!! UGH! It was totally jammed up!!!!.

So I hit reset on the disposal and when that did not work I followed this YouTube video and unclogged it myself. Thank goodness. I was going to be really ticked off if I broke it forever because I did not want to carry a full jar to the trash!




Soooo gross....all fixed now!!!!

I also harvested some of my herbs from my patio! The pineapple sage, lemon thyme, sweet mint and curled parsley are all doing great but the basil was decimated by the japanese beetles! ICK and UGH! I am still in the middle of fighting the battle to save the second set of plants I planted but it does not look promising!

I had so much extra that I put out a little "free for the taking" stand at the front door of my condo...sharing is caring, right??!?! HA!



And lastly, I caught some Pokemen because that is what I do! This guy was chilling in my kitchen on Sunday! HA! I am still obsessed with the game and I love it even if it is childish! So there! HA!


I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and got to take advantage of the beautiful weather!!

Happy MONDAY!


What is your biggest pet peeve? How was your weekend? Did you hang outside or was it too hot for you? Ever use YouTube to fix things?

  1. I can fully understand the cat fur problem. I got enough off of one cushion on my sofa that it was the same size as his head! I hate when people cancel the last minute too. There are times when it just can't be helped and I understand that, but often it's because they just don't feel like it. Then I have to change all of my plans. At least you did some useful things!

    1. Right Kathy? It is just frustrating because I could have traveled and had a really enjoyable weekend! Thanks for stopping by and reading!

  2. I so remember all the kitty fur everywhere. Lots of cleaning to get that up.

    I'm sorry your friend canceled on you. I'm guessing you won't stay home for her again.

    Have a fabulous day and week. ♥

    1. Exactly the same Nana. I used to hang out with a girl that was always at least 15 minutes late wherever we were going-usually 30 minutes or more! She would laugh it off saying it is how she is. I finally told her I thought it was rude and unthoughtful because it sends a message that she does not value my time. We no longer make plans together - HA!

  6. Oh that would be annoying having someone cancel on you. My biggest pet peeve is people who are late. I don't have much of a weekend since I work on Sunday and Saturday is usually laundry day

    1. I am so with you on the late thing Ann!!! Very annoying also!! I was raised to be 15 minutes early ALWAYS! Have a great day! HUGS

  7. Very annoying about the cancellation. I've used Youtube clips a number of times to fix things, including changing the battery in what appeared to be a sealed car remote locking device.

    1. Perfect use! It is surprising how long things can last when you just google it and fix it yourself! Have a fantastic day Andrew! HUGS

  8. Went to the farmers' market on Saturday and trekked less than 2 hours north to visit/stitch with my Mom and pick up my framing. That was the extent of being outside over the weekend as it was hot and humid here. I dislike it when people say they are going to do something or visit and then don't with no call, no email, no contact. Have a wonderful week!

    1. I love a good farmers market! Sadly, I don't have any near me! How nice you had a visit with your mother and you stitch together...that is such valuable time spent with your mother!!! HUGS

  9. Ahh - sorry about the cancellation. Typically, they dont bother me, but I get the point about being able to make other plans. That's really aggravating. At least you got some productive things done, right? :)

    1. Absolutely Rebecca Jo! I should have been less productive and floating in the lake - HA HA! I got a lot done- this is true! Have a fantastic week! HUGS

  10. You know, I can stand both cancellations and tardiness except when it is a habit. I have a few friends that are always, always late. That is irksome.

    1. Yes it definitely is Linda. I lost a close friend because of it once but it was worth losing her after I explained how it sends a message that she does not value my time and she confirmed that - HA HA! Have a great week! HUGS

  11. Cancellation wouldn't have been so tragic if it hadn't spoiled plan B with the family. Sigh.
    Don't you love the Internet for solving problems? There is probably nothing you can't find an answer for outside of brain surgery.

    1. Actually Patti, I think Brain surgery is on there too but I would hope no one tries that unskilled....HA HA! I do not know how we functioned before the internet! Have a great day - HUGS
