Randomness & An Organized Junk Drawer

Did everyone enjoy a good 3 day holiday?  
For the most part mine was good... wet which we need here in Nor Cal, but good!

I was hoping to check in today with my barrel cane chair done... but with the weather I have not been able to paint it!  And that has put a weird lack of motivation to do anything else in my house!  It is not because I don't have things I could be doing... just not feeling into it.  I am also trying, need to be, am in money saving mode, so projects I need to spend a little money for I seem to be putting off.  I made a list of things to do that are free as I piddled around my house on Monday.  Do you do that?  Piddle?  I do that often!  Yesterday I landed on my junk drawer... 

I know it was not crazy messy to begin with, but I did rid the drawer of 2 iPhones and 2 iPod Touches!  I keep my house fairly organized so it is hard to get it too out of whack, but it nice to open it up to see everything back into it's place!

Also over the weekend...
My girlfriend and I took our boys to go see the Lego Movie!  I would highly recommend it!  It was fun, clever on both kids and adult levels {I swear we were laughing more then the boys!!} and it had a surprising twist in the store line!  Totally worth taking the kiddos to see in the movie theater! 

 Right before the 4 day rain storm our pool got gunited.  It is so real now!  I can't wait to show you the amazing tile we picked out for the sheer decent walls and the water line... I am so in love!
I also hosted family dinner on Sunday and made a Paleo Shepard's Pie.  Super yummy and totally what I was craving on the cold and windy weekend!  I will share the recipe this Friday!

Do you ever get this way... in a little slump?  Maybe I should just take the opportunity, put myself on the couch and catch up on my shows!  I am still watching shows that were airing during the holidays!  Yes I know!  I we record too much tv, but have absolutely zero time to watch any of it!

Junk drawers have a way of getting under my skin. I was at my parents over the weekend and I opened theirs and it about threw up on me it was so full. For the next 30 minutes I organized. My favorite find was the bag of batteries labeled "partially used 2011"

And yay for your pool!! It's going to be grand, I'm cold and jealous over here ;)
