Where did the weekend go?

It's been a busy weekend around our house...

Matt was able to continue taking down the walls in the basement, and now it's one big room. All the framing had to be taken down as well because of water that leaks in with each rain has caused rotting wood. Next up Matt will be building a workbench area for himself.

While Matt was busy in the basement I took to the dining room that was in need of some love after serving as our interim kitchen and construction storage area. I repaired some dents and dings on the walls then repainted the entire room. We went with a slight change in color, it's now 'Chocolate Truffle'. If I can't eat chocolate everyday at least I can look at it!

Before, painted with Chocolate Sparkle:

Matt is currently working on framing our french doors and insulating them better, so hopefully next weekend it will be finished with the furniture back in.

In other news today was the first day of yoga!

Sabrina and I had planned to attend a free class at a local studio that I am planning to join for the month, and at the last minute Matt decided to come along too!

We had a great one-hour session of stretching and posing our way to healthy. The instructor was great and easy to follow through the moves. It was also easy to adjust each pose to your personal abilities. So for the next month I will be attending classes about 3 times a week, and each class is a different type of yoga so I hopefully it will help me get focused and give me exposure to multiple type of yoga.

The rest of Sunday was spent getting ready for the week by grocery shopping, making chili, making lunches, and making our dinner for tonight. Alright off to enjoy some meat loaf and brussel sprouts. (Yes, I eat brussel sprouts- I can't believe it either.)
