high on productivity

I love falling back. Today was extra long and I took full advantage of the extra hour. Started with a grocery list, then the actual grocery shopping, then something I've never, ever done before and that was Christmas shopping in November. I got a solid 3 crossed off my list, no second guessing if they're going to love it or having the notion that I may find something better a week before Christmas.
My have all my shopping completed by the end of the month.
Can it done? I'm hopeful.
After my morning shopping trip, I came home to tackle our monster of a garage. It ends up being a catch-all for all our, and my brother's stuff. Some how our 2 car garage had only a narrow pathway from the door to the entrace to our kitchen. I figured my lack of motivation for doing laundry, working out and re-doing my craft room directly involved the mess in the garage. So now it's clean and I've done 4 loads of laundry, dug out my little circuit training manual, and started packing away stuff in my room so J can paint.
*also did a load of dishes, made awesome teriaki chicken and rice, finished a layout and journaled, and now blogging*

Here's a botched layout. I'm trying to figure out how to save it from the dump bin.
A layout I did for Michelle's tape challenge over at SIS. I love this photo and memory of the swing even more.
Me and my guy. Celebrating our 8 year wedding anniversary. We ate at Southside calamari ever but I was a little disappointed in my entree. After lunch, we went for a drive. This photo was taken at the park down the road. It was such a beautiful, crisp winter day.So, yeah....that was my weekend. Accomplishing things is such a great feeling. Knowing that I've got some one like J to grow old with is an even greater feeling.
