Sunday evening...

...and not a lot going on. It's been nice out this weekend so we've been outside, cleaning out under the deck (me), and barbeque-ing and drinking beer (Dan.) Earlier this week we had a problem with our heat (the landlords turned it off for some unknown reason, we had no heat for 2 days and they wouldn't get back to us!), so we were suffering in the cold (like it was coat wearing cold, down to 10C), freezing our butts off, so we took advantage of the heat as much as possible. We also got Shimi outside and she loved it, it's going to be hard to keep her inside now!

He's so darn handsome sometimes :)

Let's see, what else? Here are my latest 52Qs, I'm having a really fun time with these, I'm about half way caught up now, I have about 6 more to make (I'm discovering though that my binding method isn't going to work with 52 cards, too thick, so I'm going to have to buy some mini book rings for it. These are questions 12 (What am I grateful for right now?) and Question 4 (When I look into my eyes...) I can't wait to make some more of these!

I got a new locket from this shop on Etsy and I absolutely adore it, I need to print off some teeny pics of me and Dan to put inside (I joked with him and said I would put a pic of me and a pic of the cast of LOST, or maybe Edward Cullen, lol)

This is one of my 365s, on Tuesday it will be my last day, I can't believe it, I made it! Well, I didn't make it since I don't have 365 shots, but I'm going to see how many I have, I'm hoping I hit the 50% mark, in which case that's still pretty good considering it's 180 something shots! I'm not sure if I'll continue into year 2, I don't think so, I'll probably just do something similar when I get pregnant, every week or something

(side note: I got a magazine from the grocery store, you know, one of those free ones at the cash that's mostly advertisements and short little articles, and a lot of it was about fertility and babies so I said what the heck, and in the back they had horoscopes and mine said that now was the time I was going to get pregnant...and Dan's said the "pregnancy is possible now". Ours were the only horoscopes out of all of them that mentioned pregnancy...I know it's foolish but it must be a sign, right?! If the free magazine horoscope said it then it must be true, lol.)

Tomorrow is my earned day off and I'm going to clean my kitchen like it's nobody's business. I'm going all Martha Stewart on its ass! Spring cleaning for sure, I want to prep it for when I repaint (hopefully next month or something...) I got some paint samples and I think I'm pretty sure of what I'm going for (a sandy beige colour...I would prefer white but the cabinets are all white and so is the trim, it would be overkill, so something still kinda neutral that goes with the living room is is my plan, and then I'm going to add some bright prints/curtains, accents instead.) I think I'm going to focus on one room at a time, so tomorrow I'll get the biggest one out of the way, do some touch ups, clean out all the cupboards, the fridge, wash the floors, the windows...sounds terrible but I'm looking forward to it! :)

Dan and I are also considering getting a flat screen TV soon so I am on the lookout for a sideboard/6 drawer dresser/record player cabinet that I could use to put the TV on. Been checking Kijiji every day but so far nothing. Patience is the key when it comes to furniture thrifting I think (and snagging something when you see it before it's gone, I learned that the hard way!) If I find something I'll be sure to show it off!

I suppose that's all, here's a random cute picture of a bunny, I found it here, of course, for all your cuteness needs.

How was your weekend? Was it nice and did you get outside? Any Spring cleaning plans?
