My Spring Break

I have enjoyed a week off from teaching and all things related (since I am procrasting on my huge stack of grading to do). I did have swim practice each day for a couple of hours in the morning with my SJHHS Swim Team....but here were some of my projects for the week.

Monday I spent the day with my mom. She trimmed my hair (don't you just love it when your hair is freshly cut?) We had lunch at Javiers in Crystal Cove (I wanted to drive along the coast). I love mom/daughter days!

Tuesday I spent the day weeding, raking the soil, digging out some dead plants, planting many new plants, and adding more compost to the soil in the bakyard planter.
Wednesday and Thursday I painted the dining room and kitchen a terra cotta color, primed and painted the fireplace white, took off the top cupboard doors and painted the cupboards white. I have all the doors in the garage primed and ready to be have a couple of coats of white paint. We are going to paint the bottom cupboards an espresso color to match the dining room table.

Friday I had lunch with my dad! I'm so glad to see him!
