Where does the time go?

Posted on Sun, 9 Mar 2008 by midcenturyjo

It’s Sunday afternoon in Australia as I write this and my whole weekend has flown by. I could not honestly tell you what I have done but it involved lots of running around and not much achievement. I managed to finish the new covers for my rattan chairs but forgot to pick up the new foam cushions. I’m making do with the old foam base and a ticking cushion from another chair. I’ve tried them with a book and a cup of tea and they are surprisingly comfortable. I also spray painted my cane plant stand and entertained ideas of a jungle of ferns inside my living room. I chickened out (thoughts of water spills) and it now has a home on my patio with my other plants. I have heard a little rumor that Kim is busy painting her dressing room. Glad she is getting something constructive done this weekend. As for me, it’s time for a nana nap. I’m exhausted!

The chair(s) looks fabulous! Good job! Wish I could relax with a cup of tea and a book. I got up early to shovel – I have a feeling it will take me at least 2 hours. On a good note there’s so much snow I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t even make it off the driveway so I am stuck here…and will be painting all day. 🙂

The cushions cam out wonderful. Love the choice of fabrics. I didn’t have the heart to tell you before, but we have a peacock chair sitting in our attic looking for a home.

Beachgrl I’m on my way to pick it up 😛 Hasn’t it stopped snowing in Ottawa yet Kim? Governments always put their capitals in inhospitable places. Keeps the public servants working hard. Nothing else to do:)

I would leave the striped pillow. It is a nice contrast to the floral.

looks like the perfect spot to take a little nap!
