Another Busy Weekend

We had a good weekend. Nothing exciting happened but it was relatively productive. Saturday we went out to check out carpet cleaners. I have put off getting one because we have no place to store it. But we need one and we'll just have to find a place. So we ended up with a Bissel. Then I came home and started laundry, worked on a pattern I got last weekend and cleaned up a bit.

I roasted a whole chicken for dinner with lemon butter and garlic. It was so good. Jim added a salad and we had a great Valentines Day dinner. But can I just say something here about whole chickens. It has been a while since I made a whole one we prefer to buy ours frozen in pieces, it lasts longer that way. Did I just buy the wrong type or do they not put the "parts" in a little paper bag anymore? I am sorry to all you lovers of internal chicken organs but GROSS. That is the last thing I want to reach my hand in and find floating around in there. I am sorry but I will not be eating any blood filtering parts and I just wish the chicken people would put them in hot dogs where you don't know what you are eating anyway. I guess I was just unprepared for those little morsels of chicken. I just would like to see a return to the paper bag where I can dispose of them unseen and untouched.

Yesterday we got up and got busy working on the house again. Jim worked in the bedroom and I continued my pattern. When Jim had all the furniture from our bedroom in the living room, I put together the carpet cleaner and got busy in the bedroom. I went over the carpet twice and the water was still gross. It needed it bad. I then had Jim rinse it because by the time I was done going over it twice I was starting to feel it in my hips.

After a short break I went back to sewing. Check out my Little Miss Blanket Blog to see my latest creation. I sewed until 8 (with a short break for dinner) and then stopped to watch Amazing Race (we can only get that channel in the bedroom) then back to sewing. I think I finished by 9:30.

So as you can see nothing too exciting. We are really trying to become more organized and get the house in order but it means a few weekends like this with not much excitement. Although, next weekend I am going to my sisters Pampered Chef party. I have a few things I know I "need". I also want to get my blanket blog in better condition so I can start selling a few things from there or at least link to my etsy site better. It is either start selling my wares fast or get a second job.

Happy Presidents Day!

I echo what E said. I love mine too. The last time I had the Professionals do it they charged an arm and a leg. I don't have any arms and legs left.
