Productive weekend on the homefront. No so great on the eating front. The weather was kind of yucky for biking. Saturday was cold and kind of drizzly. Sunday was a little sunnier, but really windy. I don’t mind biking in cold so much, but I detest biking in strong winds.
We had our usual Sunday bagel:
Both of us were up too early. Always spells snacking later on.
We did have a nice leisurely breakfast and talked about or vacation plans for 2012. We don’t really get a long vacation this year, but I am going to start saving up now for a nice vacation for early 2012. Disneyworld!
We got a lot done on the rooms. They are now 2 separate rooms. We can now officially call them the pantry/entry and the half bath/laundry. This included skim coating and sanding the walls. John really hates doing that, but I don’t mind so much.
We also got the ceiling painted in the pantry room. It looks so much better just doing that, too. Amazing what a coat of paint can do (haha – I just corrected coat of pain). We are now into the part that I find fun and rewarding. Tiling has begun. Note the tile isn’t this dark, it is just the lighting.
Again, we have to work on this a little oddly for space reasons. It is annoying to have to move stuff around to work, but you do what is necessary, right?
I will be glad when this is done and we can have the house back to normal. I am hoping another couple weeks ought to do it.
Pixie will also be glad to have her bathroom back to normal.
Thanks for that link, Shelley!
This was a chicken burger from the smokehouse. They do a mix of breast and thigh, so the burger doesn’t get dry! Topped with some buffalo wing cheese, hot sauce and a drizzle of blue cheese. It was * good*!

We went out for some coffee for a break
Cookie dough has entered the house. I never buy girlscout cookies, but I do buy cookie dough when my nieces have a fundraiser.
They are portioned out into individual cookies, which is nice instead of a bucket of dough, but I will just eat plain dough balls. And did. I think someone was trying to be as wheat free as possible this month. Was that me? You wouldn’t think so…
More painting to do tonight and some relaxing. We got so much done. Guess that will happen when no biking.
I did eat like I would have had I biked 40 miles. Fighting the tired snackies. Oh well, Just back on track again tomorrow.
