Saturday Mornings

Ahhhhhhhhh...Saturday mornings...I love them!  My get-on-the-go coffee was delicious this morning and the pancakes; well, scrumptiously yummy...loaded with fresh (well previously frozen) cranberries, blueberries, pineapple, coconut and some crunchy granola...mmmmmm!  I sneaked a small dollop of whipped cream and just a drizzle of caramel sauce on them...honestly!  I only ate one and would have resisted altogether but before my feet even landed on the floor this morning, my hubby requested my berry-loaded pancakes - so what's a girl to do, right? 

As I sit here typing, I'm eyeing my packages which were courier-delivered earlier this week from TSC...the boxes contain a new healthy meal plan and exercise bar.  I think the reason I am procrastinating about opening the box is because I know I have to at least attempt to make some changes in my current lifestyle.  I really do  plan to open them  sometime today and I am going to give it a more pancakes in my near future...sigh.  Anyway, remember my rant about my unproductive weekend?  This weekend WILL be different.  I'm already energized and ready to go...I will update this post throughout the day and publish it tonight so you will be convinced that I followed through with my plan.  Enjoy your Saturday wherever you are!

This is the before shot of one of the 6 chairs I will be painting and recovering.  My hubby has already removed the chair seat and I'm ready to get started with the sanding and painting.  I will post an after shot once I have the first chair refurbished.  I'm excited to see the transformation and can't wait to use my new electric stapler which Paul bought me for this project.  Wish me success!
Well, just to let you know that we finally hung our new abstract canvas.   I purchased this canvas quite awhile ago at HomeSense.  It has been leaning against the opposite wall on my  mirrored accent table until I decided where I wanted to hang it.  I'm proud to say that it's now properly displayed and looks quite you like it?  I wanted to bring in another bit of sunny yellow without overdoing it.  Yellow is such a cheerful color, isn't it?

Our new canvas...really liking the soft creams, greys, greens and, of course, the pop of yellow!

I actually got down on my hands and knees and cleaned my hardwood floors today, then I shuffled around a few things in the living room...just slight changes but it does look much nicer. I  now have to get focused again since I decided to take a break and accompany Paul to Canadian Tire and the supermarket.  Although at Canadian Tire I did find some lovely white wicker  square baskets to replace the black ones I now have.  The baskets just slide into the openings in my front entrance table. They will brighten up the area quite nicely, I think.  I also purchased 2 cans of Rustodeum spray paint to change the base of my now bronzed buffet lamps.  These will go on our sofa table in the living room.  I can't wait for them to dry!

Here it is folkes...the results of my first attempt at distressing and recovering a chair; I am quite pleased with the outcome...just 5 more to go!

A 'Joyful' heart is good medicine
