I had a great weekend! I actually felt ready for the week to start on Sunday night and I can’t even remember the last time that happened. Over the weekend I realized that the last time Eric and I were both home on Friday AND Saturday night was July 12/13. Holy smokes, I do not know where our summer went but a weekend at home was much-needed. Here’s what it looked like…
Friday after work I cleaned the house top to bottom! Cleaning for two hours isn’t the most appealing thing at the end of a long work week but I was happy to get it out of the way before the weekend hit. Then we went over to my mom’s house for dinner and board games. We played Scattegories and Clue!
Saturday started off bright and early when Eric and I crawled out of bed for a morning run. We met up with my friend Carmine and her pup Donut for a 13km trail loop. Eric was on fire and ended up leaving me and Carmine in his dust about 6km into the run and actually ended up doing another 4km at the end for a total of 17km! What a rockstar.
After our run, showers and coffee we headed down to the Farmer’s Market. This was a good reminder to me as to why I don’t go to the market after 9:30am ever. It was so busy! Like literally shoulder to shoulder with people. We grabbed some bannock, kale, lettuce, peppers, nectarines, plums, eggs and strawberries. We then went to say bye to my dad as he was heading back up north after being down here for the past three weeks. It was great to have such a nice, long visit with him!
Then in the afternoon Eric and I went to the movie with my mom and brother. We saw “The Giver” and I really enjoyed it. After the movie we ended up having a two hour nap! It was much needed after our long run that morning but it was actually a bit too long since I felt groggy afterwards.
Saturday evening we prepared a mexican feast for my mom, brother and cousin Megan. It included chicken enchilada’s, beef taco’s, spanish fried rice, refried black beans and homemade pico de gallo. It was sooo good! Then my lovely friend Jen stopped by and I helped her pick out an outfit for her maternity photos, which she looked gorgeous in!
Sunday morning we enjoyed a leisurely morning laying in bed until 9:00am! I can’t even remember the last time I stayed in bed that late. Since I was washing the sheets that day we let Chloe sleep in the bed with us the night before and she was just as sleepy and cuddly. Once I got my butt out of bed I headed to a 10am hot moksha yoga class. I haven’t been going to yoga enough lately and I was very stiff and sore but it felt good.
After yoga we basically puttered around the house all day on Sunday! I did some laundry, we purged and reorganized our spare bedroom and I had a nice long video chat with Lisa. In the evening we went out for ice cream in waffle cones. We had plans to go fishing on Sunday afternoon but the purging/reorganizing took way longer than originally planned so we’ll have to save that for the long weekend.
Overall a really fabulous weekend! I know that when I posted my blog on Friday and listed some of the things I was going to do this weekend people were like “umm, that doesn’t sound unplanned to me!” but for me an ‘unplanned’ weekend means that I don’t have certain things scheduled at certain times. I personally don’t find doing nothing relaxing but rather having the right mix of activity, productivity, social time and laying around in my weekends is the most relaxing combo for me!
How was your weekend? What does a relaxing or “unplanned” weekend look like for you?
