Easter weekend 2010

What a busy weekend we had! We cleaned out the "study" closet in the guest room and set the twin beds in the guest room for mum and dad. Set up their monster 42" HDTV, hooked up the computer to the massive screen. Ofcourse, there were issues with internet hookup but alex fixed that. He tried to locate some cricket on the internet for dad and ended up with malware/spyware on his laptop.... long but happy ending story I will not bore you with.

We went out on Saturday to HD and bought some shelves and hardware for the new study area down stairs. The "library" was deep cleaned and scores of books sacrifised to the cause of turning it a little more into a guest room with the beautiful antique double bed in there instead of the double futon. Futon has been pastured, literally, in the backyard. Maybe we'll pain it and turn it into lawn furniture! Oh, b.t.w. we need a shed in the backyard for our gardening stuff.... another weekend for that. Coming back to Saturday: we put up said shelves in basement, they still need to be loaded in. Pictures will follow when complete.

Easter day, we had an egg hunt, and then another, and another....I think about 5 in total, Tara is still asking for more. Lunch was a hastily grabbed slice of brown sugar cake (Yummmm) followed by a roast chicken dinner accompanied by stuffing, yorkshire pudding, broccoli and gravy. We were too busy to take pictures!

Monday, I tackled taxes in a kid free house, taxes are DONE and filed!
