The Week’s End

High fives to myself for continuing on my weekend-to-the-fullest journey, hurrah! And Scott, too. Our building wide yard sale + bike shop sidewalk sale was a success (more on year’s past here and here), which naturally meant treating ourselves to pasta and a late night flick with neighbors, followed by Sunday projects (the reconstructed ottoman is, literally, taking shape) and rounded out with street fests, live music, and bike rides. (Just click on the first photo or any thumbnail below to view the slide show.)

Oh, and those Christmas ornaments? A destructive Friday night storm flooded our basement again, but three cheers for our modular storage unit (hip, hip…!). The knee high waters only managed to soak through our Christmas bin (stored on the floor), and that tree decor you see is rinsing in a sink bleach bath. We managed to salvage our Christma-versary trinkets (phew), and the rest of our stored “stuff” was high enough to stay on dry land… Er, shelving.

Ironically, there were a handful of items we planned to show off in the yard sale, and we were too tired to lug ’em upstairs on Friday night – which led to a dumpster haul Saturday morning. But aside from a cooler and a few plastic whatsits that needed a wipe down (admittedly annoying regardless), we were a-okay. The angels sang; I swear.

How’d you fare?
