Productive Saturday

Last night, before I went to sleep, I wrote out my weekend do to list.  Sometimes, just writing everything down is a big help. 

I had a good night's sleep and slept in a bit, this morning.  As a result, I had 9 hours of sleep instead of my usual 5-6 hours.  I had a relaxed morning, posting on-line, watching some crafts and cooking shows on TV, video chatting with daughter, playing on-line games, etc.

In the afternoon, I did some cleaning.  I decided to tidy my bedroom since I had stuff piled on both my desk and my dressing table and the mess was getting to me.  I tidied the desk and the dressing table, dusted all the furniture and the window sill, changed my bed sheets, and cleaned the ceiling fan and light fixture.  There's one burnt out bulb, but I need to buy more bulbs before I can replace it.    I still need to vacuum the room and tidy my closet, but that can be done later.  I put some of the stuff that was on my desk in the 3rd bedroom, which functions as both a guest room and crafts room, so that room needs to be cleaned, but that, too, will be done later.

I came across a bunch of lace doilies my mother had crocheted, so I hand washed some of them.  The rest will be washed tomorrow.  I also did a load of laundry (the bed sheets that were on my bed).  And I washed a sinkful of dishes and wiped down the kitchen counters.  Also cleaned the litter box and swept the bathroom floor.   

In between, I video chatted with my daughter, spoke on the phone with a friend and an aunt (both had called to check on me since they knew I had felt tired earlier in the week), and played a few games of mahjong on the computer.

I am happy with what I have been able to accomplish today.  There was a nice balance between rest and relaxation on one hand and cleaning and productivity on the other hand.  Tomorrow, I shall carry on with the rest of the weekend to do list.

How was your Saturday?  Did you have a good day?
