Oh, Right

So I started to make my list of weekend chores. It went something like this:

1. Sweep, vacuum
2. Organize/declutter one room (still putting stuff away from the move)
3. Laundry
4. Put up pictures
5. Buy garbage bags
6. Touch-up paint walls

What other dreary chores can I come up with? I'm sure there are plenty. I am a slave driver (of my self), apparently.

Then I remembered, oh yeah! I'm supposed to be having more fun and relaxing more! So then I came up with this new list:

* Browse new book and food blogs (while sitting on butt in front of fireplace)
* Finish reading The Grotesque
* Make some origami
* Buy frame for new owl painting, start painting
* Organize art stuff
* Make rice pudding
* Make new dinner recipe
* Browse for bowls (we have no bowls; how did this happen?)
* Go for walk; take camera

That looks like so much more fun. I bet I can even sneak in some sweeping and laundry.

I just bought some new bowls at Macy's (I had a total spaz attack and broke 4 of my salad/soup bowls) they in the back of the store on sale (natch) I also saw some nice ones at Pier 1 - pretty colors, simple design, nice and deep - only $3 each - sweet!
