The Cool House: Unaccomplished

Monday, September 28, 2009


Things we did not get done this weekend:
Choosing tiles and fixtures for the master bathroom
Picking a fence style so we can order it and have it installed before the ground freezes
Winterizing the barbecue - the bbq that we have used 3 times this year!
Putting the hard top on the Jeep and cleaning it (the plants I transported left a fair amount of leaves and soil behind that, mixed with dog hair, have formed a lovely layer of mulch on the back seat)
Anniversary dinner

Instead we took a flu-break and watched back-to-back episodes of Samantha Brown's Great Weekends on the Travel Show - punctuating the episodes on Savannah, Nashville, Memphis and Austin with our memories of those cities - the restaurants we'd eaten at and the places we'd seen. And when we'd exhausted ourselves armchair traveling we stretched out and watched a few movies. In order of awesomeness, best first:
Grosse Pointe Blank
Cadillac Records
Danny Deckchair
Made of Honor
The Librarian: Quest for the Spear

The Guy also read an entire novel and declared it a totally satisfying weekend. I guess it's good to have some down time every now and again but it meant there wasn't anything to blog about, which was my retort when he complained mentioned that I hadn't written anything for two days...

Grosse Point Blank IS awesome. LOVE John Cusack. (And the soundtrack is as awesome as the movie.) Feel better!

Glad you are feeling better.

I watched Cadillac Records this weekend, too! Though without the flu...yuck...hope everyone is back in tip top beach house shape. I look forward to seeing your master bath choices so I can steal, er, borrow some inspiration.

Glad you are feeling better. And thank you for the BBQ reminder, we need to get ours ready for the coming winter. I was hoping we would use it a few more times though. :)

Please pick out a new fence for me too! It's been on my To Do list for 3 years. Oops.
