But, briefly, I did laundry and washed a quilt and blanket, I vacuumed the house, dusted and tidied the family room, and cleaned the bathtub; I bought cactus planting mix and more terra cotta pots, as well as a few other household items from the dollar store (a battery for the smoke detector, a spray nozzle for the garden hose, etc.); I took cuttings from my Swedish ivy plant, which has mostly died due to neglect (and almost lost my balance when I stepped on a paving stone that has shifted and was hidden by weeds and my ankle twisted under me! I was afraid I'd fall, but managed to recover my balance.)
I baked banana bread with some overripe bananas, washed a heap of dishes, called a friend and spoke on the phone with relatives, did some mending and sewed myself a new lunch bag. The new lunch bag is something I had been wanting to make for some time now.
My old lunch bag was faded (it was originally pale green with a white "eyelet" like design), stained, and worn:

Sometimes I used daughter's old lunch bag:

But, that, too, was faded and starting to tear.
I wanted a new lunch bag:

The bag is not insulated or lined; it's just a bag in which to carry my lunch to work.
After I took this photo, I decided I wanted a pocket on the outside...
There were other things I had planned to do this weekend, which I didn't do for one reason or another. I will work on them during the week.
How was your weekend? Were you able to do all what you had planned to do?
