I got up at 3:00 a.m. so I will have extra hours to be productive today. I have already done my major weekend cleaning tasks (done by 6:00 a.m. LOL ). Then I started to bake a cake, but had to set it aside when I discovered I was out of eggs. I will bake the cake later this afternoon.
As soon as it was daylight I went outside and picked up fallen pinecones so I could use them in this autumn arrangement for the family room.
There is a second glass cyclinder inside the pinecones to hold the water. I wish I had thought to take a pic of the assembly. I will be able to use the pine cone bottom right through Christmas. I will change the top portion to whatever I can find growing outside. I think evergreens will be nice when it's get closer to Christmas.
DH & I spent a few hours doing some pretty hard outside work, hauling all the milk cans, tables, chairs, etc. from the garden and then washing them all off. It's time to put everything to bed for the long winter. Everything needs to dry and then we will put it all in the crawl space.
This huge washtub is getting too heavy to haul into the storage crawl space, so we dumped it out.
DH is going to grill steaks tonight, so I won't have to do much work when I get home. That's good because I think all of my energy is about gone already.
Hope you are having a productive Saturday, too - even if your goal is just to relax.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
