A realization of dreams!
My weekend was one of dreams coming true!
Well, actually just PART of my dreams came true. But that's better than nothing, right?
Instead of a week in a cabin by myself, I got 30 hours at home. I quickly made a list of useful and productive things I could fill my day with ........ and disregarded it the moment I was alone. It was heaven.
We were up early Sat morning (to birdsong and sunshine); and after I dropped the girls off, I found a wonderful porch sale. (Details to follow later this week.) I took a walk by the river and drank a yummy latte ..... which gave me just enough zip to spend a happy hour at Frenchies. Lots of lovely thrifting bargains there.
I brought out the garden and deck furniture. And then I curled up on the couch and finished my murder mystery novel ("Grave Secrets" by Kathy Reichs -- It was a good read.) followed by a delicious afternoon nap. I'd eaten a sparse but healthy breakfast and lunch ..... so I indulged my fantasies and had beans on toast for dinner.
Then I reclined on the couch once again and watched an old DVD which I'd bought recently -- Funny Girl with Barbara Streisand. I haven't seen this favorite of mine for many, many years; and I'd forgotten how good and how funny it is.
Sunday brought another gorgeous sunny day and hot tea on the deck -- while I wore my fuzzy slippers, winter coat and gloves! It is only April in Nova Scotia! After church, my tired, dirty girls came home and yes, they were happy to see me. I took another delicious afternoon nap on the couch, and followed it with a very long walk.
Why walk so long? Well ya see, I'd decided to indulge another fantasy ..... I made chocolate chip, peanut, peanut butter, oatmeal cookies. I didn't eat 3 dozen -- so far the number is up to 6, so I shall have to take many, many more long walks!
So, it's been a lovely 1 day vacation. It's back to work and routine tomorrow. But the rest of the evening will be spent lounging on my bed and watching "Titanic" on TV with Kate and Leonardo. The tissues are close at hand!
