Weekend Housework

Staying in on the weekends and keeping a low profile is my favorite thing to do even if it’s weekend housework. Never would I have thought I would get to the point in my life where I would appreciate sitting at home. I put on my sweats and headed outside to help Greg with the power washing.

Weekend Housework

He had an ad on Craig’s List to sell it, but the person never came over. He was outside making sure it worked and decided that if they were a no-show, we would just keep it.

We sprayed down all the sidewalks, and it took a few hours to get it all done. The difference is pretty amazing, though. I think we should keep the washer and do this yearly. I’m not sure this has even been done in all the years the house has been here because the dirt and grime were thick.

My job while Greg was cleaning we to move the hose, washer and get the gas can for refills. You would not believe how much gas it took but next year should be easier.

I left Greg to do the front steps while I did housework inside the house. I’m trying to get better and checking things off my to-do list. I cleaned the kitchen, fixed Digger’s food and did all the dishes.

I’ve also been getting flack over all the clothes I have that I never wear so a little closet clean out, was in order and it was a lot easier than I expected it to be.

There is a place not far that collects clothes. Hopefully, we will get that taken care of before next week. Before we moved there use to be several trucks that would pick up old clothes and household items but they don’t travel out to the country where we are now. It does feel good to clean out the closet.

It’s not a long vlog to share with y’all today, so I’m sorry about that. We did manage to put a little something together without weekend housework.

Chores, Wine and Lush

We can sum up my Sunday by saying chores, wine, and Lush. After a pretty stressful week at the office, I needed a calm weekend with lots of wine.

We started our day off at the grocery store because I needed to buy chicken for the week and Greg wanted a loaf of bread. When I start to cut my calories, my grocery list becomes very basic. Maybe I will have to do a video with my food essentials that I must have to get me through a week. Let me know if you are interesting in something like that.

We keep our shopping list short and sweet. Once we got home, I spent the day cleaning and marking things off my to-do list.

I did some recording for my main YouTube channel too so I would say the weekend was calm and productive at the same time. Oh, I almost forgot to mention the watermelon that Greg picked up at Costco on Sunday. This watermelon weighed over 30 pounds. I’m not kidding; we put in on the scale to see how much it weighed.


I figured there was no better time than Sunday to take a bath with a Lush bath bomb and have a glass of wine to relax fully. I tried the butterball bath bomb, and I’m hooked! It smells like vanilla and makes my skin feel silky. I called Greg in the bathroom so he could feel how smooth my skin felt. It reminds me of baby oil but in a good way. It’s honestly a new favorite of mine, and I have a feeling when Winter is in full force I will have a stock of the Butterball bombs to keep my skin feeling fantastic.

iPhone Replacement and Major Car Accident

iPhone Replacement and Major Car Accident

Well, we are only halfway through the week, and I had an iPhone replacement and had to fight traffic from a major car accident. I guess we will start from the weekend up to today. Over the weekend I found out that I would need to take my iPhone to the Apple store to have it looked at because the microphone stopped working. I would get this terrible static when using Snapchat, on a call or while using the recorder. I did all the troubleshooting possible but had no luck.

On Sunday I cut up all the jalapeños we grew and place them in the freezer, Now we can keep them fresh and ready to use this winter. I did have a problem with the juice from the jalapeños still on my hand, and I burned my face on accident. I heard that stainless steel soap is a good option to clean it off my hands so I will be adding that to my Amazon shopping cart tonight.

The accident happened on Monday and as you can see in the picture. I was at a complete stop, and my usual 50-minute drive turned into 2 hours and 45 minutes. They closed the road from one exit to another so they could clean up the scene. The accident happened around 3 am. A car got on the highway going in the wrong direction and hit a tractor trailer. The car going the wrong way caught on fire and the third car hit the tractor when trying to avoid the car that was on fire. It’s a sad situation for sure, and the person heading in the wrong direction did not make it.

I took off work early on Tuesday and spent the evening with Greg and Digger. Today we took my iPhone to Apple. They replaced it with a new one, so I’ve been working on setting the new phone up. Greg took me to Lush because we don’t have one near us. I figured I should stock up on a few items. I’m doing a Lush haul soon to show you what I picked up.

It was a good day except we were not able to register the boat. You have to love all the rules and regulations here in Maryland. Oh well, we will get it taken care of later this week.

Husband Buys a Boat

Well, it’s been awhile since we’ve caught up with each other. In my defense, it’s been a crazy week, and it ends when my husband buys a boat. We will get to that information in a little bit. I’m going to give myself a little pat on the back for being on point with my workouts and meals this week. Seeing track of my workouts and packing my food is what helped me have a successful week.

There has not been a lot of time left over for recording or editing, so I’m sorry about that. My health and getting back to a healthy weight is essential at this point, so that’s where my focus is. I’m sure everything will come together soon.

Greg asked me on Friday if I could stay home with Digger while he went to look at a boat on Saturday. We just hung out and cleaned while Greg was out. As you can see, I was the one cleaning and Digger was chillin’ on the couch watching me.

I tried to use Snapchat on Saturday. That’s when I realized the sound was nothing but static. Tried several resets on my iPhone and nothing worked. We just bought the iPhone SE for my birthday in May, so there is no reason I should have a problem. I spoke to tech support on the phone, and they told me to take it to the store on Wednesday so that I may be without my phone for a few days. Oh well, it needs to get fixed so I will live without my phone for a few days if needed.

So it’s official, we now own a fishing boat. I knew there was a possibility of purchasing the boat this weekend. I did not know Greg would get a trailer to bring it home so fast. It was a surprise when he sent me a picture of it hooked up. Greg put the boat in the garage to keep it safe, and he plans on making enough room for both vehicles, the John Deere, and the boat so we will see if he can make that happen.

He’s pretty excited about it, and so was I. He took me fishing, but I still have not caught anything so maybe the boat will be my lucky charm.

It felt good to get some footage for you. It’s a pretty big purchase, so I’m glad we could share this with y’all. The boat is pretty exciting for us!
