This past weekend, however, was productive in the non-reading, non-napping sense, mainly because my parents were visiting. By the weekend's end, I'd*:
Gotten a new carWeeded the Back 2 1/2 (feet, that is - the "plot" is perhaps 6"x5' max)
Planted impatiens in the Back 2 1/2
Bought two hanging plants
Hung a hanging plant holder on the deck
Fixed the screen door to the deck (I can now leave that door open)
Took delivery of my new, custom built and designed, mahogany-and-maple end table
Fixed the toilet in the guest bathroom
Left unfinished was setting up my new printer/scanner/copier and organizing my closets.
So yes, Thing Two, this was a very productive weekend!
(* by "I", I mean "most of this was done by my father as my mother and I looked on")
