Weekend part 1

Nothing beats waking up in the morning and knowing that it's Saturday. I didn't even mind when I looked out the back window and saw this.
Of course, come Monday morning I'm hoping that this will all be gone. (keep dreaming)

I casually started my day with a cup of hot coffee and my laptop. We headed to the store mid morning for a few necessities and few not so necessary things. Wouldn't you know it the two frivolous items I was going to buy for myself could not be found in the store.
Back home for a little bit of this
and a lot of sitting around doing not so much.

Oh and I almost forgot the best part. Last night I finally got the furniture moved back and the floor cleaned up in the living room.
Look there's Duke waiting by the front door to greet you. Come on in, sit a spell.

Still one day left to go. I wonder what I'll do next.

Julie Harward said...

That floor is a beauty! And I see why you have the snow...it's all the snowmen on your steps! ;D

Sandee said...

The floor is beautiful, but not as good looking as Duke. Just my two cents. I'm glad you are taking it easy. That's a good thing to do on a weekend.

Have a terrific evening. My very, very best to the man of the house...Duke. :)

Jean said...

Ann. I Love your floor and home. Well done!!!!

Donna said...

Hiya, Duke! You supervised your mommy well!

Out on the prairie said...

So now you are pros with the flooring, come over this way.It looks really nice.I like the color you selected.

Anne said...

Your day sounds very much like mine :). The floors look fabulous.

Grace said...

It looks GREAT! Nice job!

Ginny said...

Oh, it is just beautiful! You have a lovely house, and so airy and neat!! I adore your header today!! I hope your roads are all clear by Monday. We are getting snow on Monday night.

Sheri said...

The place looks awesome! What a good choice for the floors. I didn't see it before but I'll bet the place looks bigger. Of course Duke is still the star of the photos!

BeadedTail said...

Your floor looks beautiful and you have the cutest greeter ever! Maybe tomorrow you can go out and play in the snow with Duke. Or just stay inside and nap with Duke.

Janice said...

The weatherman says I should be able to take snow pictures tomorrow too. Your floor looks great - we have installed similar flooring in 2 rooms. I know how exciting it is to be finished and everything is back in place!

allotments4you said...

The flooring looks great Ann...and I spied the snowmen on the stairs...will they always be there or will they go away with the Christmas decorations??
Sounds like you had a good day, one without plans often accomplishes a lot...and always more than was expected!!

Duni said...

The floor looks fabulous, Ann! Your living room is so cozy and inviting. I can imagine myself sitting there on that comfy couch doing nothing too :)

FishHawk said...

Aside from making at least that part of your home look better than any I have ever lived in, your new header looks wonderful. Sometimes you can really be irritating.

Russ said...

Yes the floor looks great. Is Duke the greeter or the watch dog? You may have jinxed yourself with the snowmen on the steps.LOL Your Header is beautiful. Lets get back to snow. We had snow Friday night and then again last night.Luckily not too much for us in this part of the state.
Have a wonderful Weekend.
