I woke up the first day of shutdown determined to make the most of my day. For some crazy reason I thought I might only have the one day to enjoy and I didn't want to waste it.
I lept out of bed made myself a latte and started mixing up banana bread.
Then I watched all my favorites on the Today show (looking at you Willy) while blogging my September recap.
Then I went for a three mile run that ended at Whole Foods to purchase eggs and some other essentials for eating all my meals at home.
I mixed the eggs with some pumpkin and chocolate chips for pumpkin bread.
Oh and giant Texas muffins.
A few weeks ago I stopped by a street sale with my friend Jenn. They were cleaning up and there was a free pile. I grabbed this tray from the free pile and decided to paint it up.
First I sanded.
Then I painted with chalkboard paint.
Then on to some flag painting, first the DC flag
Then my interpretation of the US flag.
Then it was noon and time for lunch. Haha... just kidding. That was two days of projects. I also finished hanging my collage photo wall and framed and hung some photos in my bedroom.
My sister Kristen and niece Gretchen have arrived for fun. Even though tons of things are closed and they canceled the half marathon we were going to run, we are determined to have a good time.
Yesterday we hit up the playground.
And then enjoyed milkshakes at Ted's Bulletin.
Today the building museum!
