Weekends seem to go so quickly and the weeks between are just filled with hectic chaos. Too bad that it didn't work out that weekends are 5 days and weeks are 2 days haha.
This weekend was really fun and that usually equates to time going by even faster.
After work we just came home to unwind and recover from our crazy weeks. After making eggplant parmesan for dinner, I discovered I'm not really a fan of eggplant haha. Peter likes it and eggplant was on sale at the grocery store this week which is why I made it. It was ok but just not my favorite. I'll make it again though because Peter likes it :) The rest of the evening was spend on the couch watching movies/TV.
We got up shortly after 9 AM and were packed and out the door by a quarter to 10. After stopping at McDonald's for Peter to get a mcgriddle and coffee and Panera for me to get a bagle with cream cheese, we were on our way to Johnstown. The weather was absolutely beautiful. A nice clear and sunny Spring morning. We arrive in J-town around 12 and picked up lunch for ourselves and my aunt Paula and met her at her newest rental. After checking the place out and eating lunch, we got to work. We helped her in the yard digging out plants and also wiping the ceiling and floors down. It's a cute little ranch house and we were glad to help her out for once since she did a lot of yard work for us when we first moved to Orin Street. The weather held out nicely until 6 PM when we called it quits since it was raining. We went home and soaked in the hot tub, took showers and had dinner. Afterwards we watched "America's Most Wanted" and then headed to bed. I actually got sunburnt since it didn't even cross my mind to put on suntan lotion. Oh well-that's fair skin for ya!
We awoke to rain but it was so peaceful out so it was really enjoyable. We made breakfast and then just putzed around at her house watching TV and resting. We went to check out one of her other rentals that was empty because we've never seen the inside. It's very cute with huge rooms and a nice level fenced in backyard. After coming home and having a late lunch/early dinner at 3, we packed up and headed home. It was another enjoyable car ride and we got home in a little over an hour. After a brief nap, we had our new "buffet" delivered. I bought it from a guy on Craigslist and it's going to be used in our kitchen. I'm going to paint it the color of our cupboards and it'll ultimately provide more counter space. We are going to put it under the window with the microwave and toaster oven on it and all other appliances down below with storage containers. We have a microwave stand there right now but this buffet piece is a bit wider so it'll be more spacious and be able to hold the toaster oven too which frees up another portion of my countertops. Now I just need to find a dry day to do this and it's supposed to rain all week....hmm maybe when we get back on Monday...
