2015 Weekending the First

2015 Weekending the First

When I ran out of Sunday before having time to write a blog post, I decided it was a good thing to have happened — re-entry into the working world after almost two weeks of staycation was going to be hard, and having the chance to rehash my weekend would be something to look forward to. And while indeed I am glad to be recapping a very fun weekend, I forgot to factor in how tired I would be. As in, so tired I can hardly see straight.

(Translation: please forgive me if this makes no sense.)

Anyway… because I wasn’t at the office, and because a lot happened, and — most of all — because I like three-day weekends and wish they were all that way, I am once again counting Friday towards the weekend, during which I… Continue reading

Low-Key Weekending

Low-Key Weekending
This photo is not actually from the weekend, but that’s OK.

This weekend was a little bit of a lull in the holiday season – I had a lot to do last weekend, and next weekend is shaping up to be busy, so I was glad for a somewhat low-key couple of days. Here is most of what I did (assume all gaps filled with napping and/or HGTV):

  • Had a coffee emergency (as in, there was none) and therefore started Saturday at the Safeway.
  • Did laundry (all the weird stuff this weekend, like the shower curtain, bathmat, and the rubber thingy under the litter boxes).
  • Went ice skating (and to dinner) with Brian, Jen, and the nephews.
  • Attempted to do some online shopping for Christmas but couldn’t seem to make any decisions, so gave up. (Related: had sticker shock at the cost of “classic” — that is, non-plastic — Lincoln Logs. More than $50? Whoa.)
  • Watched the second and third periods of the Caps-Lightning game on tv, and got to see Nick Backstrom score a natural hat trick.
  • Had brunch and baked Christmas cookies with my friends and their kids. (I brought fixings for gingersnaps. Obvs.)
  • Went to Eastern Market and somehow only came home with soap, potatoes and yogurt, which will not a week’s worth of meals make. (Especially the soap.) This will come back to bite me, no doubt. But I branched out and got maple yogurt instead of my usual plain, so that’s exciting.

How was your weekend?
