Had a stressful/eventful week followed by a relaxing/productive weekend. I can’t really ask for more than that. Also had a delightful evening out with my friends accompanied by a delicious meal and a delightful dessert at Boulud Sud that looked like it was wearing a Boris Johnson wig.
Also made some really great progress on the new quilt for my bed. Just in time for it to almost hit 90 degrees! I also hung new lights in my kitchen that are just so charming.
Did much, much better this past weekend with getting stuff done. It helped that it was rainy and miserable and I had no desire to set foot outside. My tub is re-caulked and looks so much cleaner. And the living room was in great shape until I decided to start cutting and laying out my quilt strips for my new bedroom quilt (above)
This past week was a bit of a loss. I think the rainy weather and uncooperative temperatures has just really been a letdown. It feels like spring isn’t even happening which means it’s hard to motivate myself to do spring cleaning. I’m hoping the first full week of May will be a gamechanger then. I’ve got about a month before my Paris trip which means I want to get my apartment (and closets especially) in order before I go. This means sorting through clothes, making room, and switching warm and cold weather gear out of storage for the season.
Luckily this weekend I have no plans. I hope to turn that to my advantage at home.
