Guilty Pleasures!!!

GR&DF welcome to Monday morning. It's usually the low end of the week with a longing for the distant weekend. For some reason not so much today - go figure. It could be that it is not as cold as it has been - the temps are hovering in the mid 50's - it could be because there is no rain this morning. I really hate driving in the rain, not so much the rain falling as the other drivers driving like maniacs ignoring the weather.... or it could be the clean closet I now have (what a bear to wrestle with this weekend!!) What ever it is - I ain't gonna fight it, but just roll with it for the day!!!

The weekend was very low key - as in no key!!! I did accomplish the cleaning of the second bedroom closet - it was so good I almost lit a cigarette when I finished!!!! I also did a bunch of laundry, as you know I really enjoy that domestic chore and all the usual ironing that accompanies clean clothes - so relaxing and such a feeling of accomplishment to have it all done.

The post title refers to a few things I enjoyed over the past two days ...... we ran to an estate sale on Saturday - only one this weekend - and picked up this book....

I have wanted a copy of this for a long time - and since it is OOP I knew I would have to find one on the secondary market. I love me some Rosalind Russell!! Her movies include.... "The Women" - 1939, "My Sister Eileen" - 1942, "Sister Kenny" - 1946, "Mourning Becomes Electra" - 1947, "Picnic" - 1955, "Auntie Mame" -1958 and "Gypsy" - 1962 - every roll did played is super - check you some of them as most are on DVD.

We stopped off at Walgreen's (a Drug Store, that carries everything and then some) and on the sale shelf, you gotta check them out sometime if you don't usually, there was a few of these.....

I do love a good freeze pop - and these where only a $1!! Wrapping up (or starting off) the guilty pleasures of the weekend.... was dinner on Friday evening.....


Pizza!! We just finished up this gigantic pie last night with a salad - such treats and the weekend is for treating yourself!!!!!!

On the stitching front - I did finish up my replacement piece stitching and now all I need to do is the final finishing. For some reason I was having the darnedest time with the back stitching. I spent the whole of Saturday evening with the counting and frogging and then a recounting and a re-frogging, but eventually got all the back stitching done. Sometimes perseverance is its own reward - and I am nothing if not persistent!!

That's about it for today sports fans. I did make a nice, tasty coffee cake, but will save that for tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!!

Take care,
edgar

I love seeing what you're up on on the weekends! Your treats are so fun! And pizza -- yum! We had pizza last night!

Cole said...

Mmmmm... that looks like one yummy pizza!

Alice said...

The pizza looks wonderful It sounds like you had a grand weekend. Personally, I'd be happier with the clean closet than the laundry....laundry is the chore that never ends in my house.

Faye said...

Your weekend shopping sure did turn up a winner with you finding that nice oop book!! And, your pizza is looking oh so yummy..Now that you have your replacement stitch out of the way, I cant wait to see what you pick up next!!

Have a great day...Faye

Well that clean closet must have really tripped your trigger! I can relate though...there really is a sense of accomplishment when you conquer a chore like that. Now if you want to feel that satisfaction "high" once more I have a closet waiting for ya!

There you go again... cleaning a closet and giving me this nagging feeling that I need to clean out mine! We just love Walgreen's and are fortunate enough to have one just two and a half blocks from us!

Rosiland Russell is the bomb!
Glad you had a great weekend.

The pizza looks fabulous...and your weekend sounds great as usual...I laughed at the "cigarette" comment...I believe that describes a good accomplishment.

That pizza looks great. Glad you're getting some relief in your weather. It was about 10-12* when I woke up today and tomorrow we're supposed to get rain, sleet, ice and then snow again - really cold again later this week.

Thanks for the laugh about smoking when done with your closet!

Have a good week, Edgar!

I love low-key week-ends. Closet cleaning? Not so much. LOL :)
The freezer pops are such fun to look at (super heroes!) and I'm sure they'll prove to be a tasty treat. Have a great rest of the week.

Hmmm..not good to see a delicious pizza staring you in the face at 10:30 pm......

Glad you had a productive weekend Edgar....but of course you haven't forgotten Rosalind Russel in "The Trouble With Angels" have you? One of my all time faves with Hayley Mills - yes, I proudly own it and the not-as-good sequel LOL!
