Projects for the weekend

I think I've watched everything I was interested in on Netflix Instant Viewing. This means I need to do some projects because "Dead Like Me" and the entire catalog of available "Dexter" episodes has sucked enough of my life away recently (there are additional Weeds discs on their way, but at a scant 30 minutes, they are safe, right?)

Here's what I have on tap for this weekend's projects (I know it's Valentine's Day on Sunday, but really? Once I give Jeffrey his annual 6-pack of Squirt soda with a bow on it, who gives a shit? Happy Birthday, Dad!):

  • Make more bread.
  • Finish purse project (will post when completed) started when my mom was visiting which was put down due to: 1. infuriating instructions that made my eyes cross and 2. Netflix instant viewing obsessions
  • Create a kitchen garden by the window sill in the kitchen. The cyclamen like it, so I'm guessing basil will, too.
  • Make Lucy a fleece dog coat. She is going to the groomer next weekend for her spring shave down, but she might get cold still. Also need to make Lily a new fleece crate blanket -- this does not count as it's own project as I just buy a yard of fleece and shove it in there.
  • Start and finish photo album for Edith's birthday of our Fall Cruise. I have the parts, I just need to put them together.
  • General housekeeping duties including trash and clutter removal, closet weeding, and Drano during the bathroom cleanings.
  • Wash and wax little red car plus oil change. Consider washing Jeffrey's car.
That's right! Nothing but excitement at the Gautreaux house.


  1. Did you see the most recent Martha Stewart magazine? One bread recipe with three variations. It's like four recipes in one! I miss the fresh bread my stepdad used to make ... you may have inspired me to make some. But this weekend I'll be making cheesecake - it's not Squirt, but I think Chris will like it anyway!

  2. So, now that Sunday is nearly over, I am curious to know how many of the above projects you were able to complete? Are you one who actually gets everything on your lists checked off, or like me, do your Sundays tend to blissfully slip away while, if you are lucky, a single project will be completed?

  3. I got everything done except the photo album and the closet weeding! I made a loaf of whole wheat bread that is truly scrumptious, finished my bag project, made Lucy a coat and Lily a blanket, cleared some clutter, planted some plants ... it was an amazing project completing weekend!

    I'll post pictures of the good stuff tonight (after I take some...)
