Weekend in Review


The sun showed it's pretty face 2 days in a row.  So, here's how I spent my weekend.

Saturday first brought a wave goodbye to Nagisa who went out for the day.  Then there was a quick stop at a yard sale (where I came away with a lovely stack of magazines for $1); then there was a hair appointment followed by a visit to the first Farmer's Market of the season:  a visit to the Market and not a working date.  How lovely to be on the other side!   

When I got home, I watered the flowers, began a little herb garden in my deck planters, and prettied up my heart-rock collection under the hanging planter. Gotta spread the love before they even get in the door!  

As that was such an exhausting way to spend Saturday morning, the doctor ordered this for the afternoon: 
 Num-nummy Gin & Tonic.  And YES!  I ate the whole bowl!

Sunday began with a 4 km walk and an iced coffee for the 2nd leg; then a quiet breakfast on the deck ... all before 10 am.  Then there was laundry to do and 2 lasagnas to make and freeze and a student to drop off at an afternoon party. 

I really was exhausted after that.  So, the doctor once again gave the order.  But this time, I made do with an orange juice spritzer. 
This is what the sky looks like from my reclining deck lounger.  My goodness!  Yesterday the leaves on the Virginia Creeper weren't open.

I love Sunday evenings like this.  My feet are aching and my body is deliciously tired and I accomplished loads yet spent hours at a time just relaxing.  What a smart doctor I have.


FYI - I haven't had a physician for almost 3 years now!

Sounds like a wonderful weekend. That OJ spritzer looks refreshing. And when it comes to popcorn, I eat the whole bowl too. have a great week.

I love that maple leaf pinwheel. In early spring before the garden gets going, we do a pinwheel garden which drives the neighbourhood stray cats insane.

And you know, the G&T does provide vitamin C and some quinine, so you won't get scurvy or malaria. See? Health food!

It sounds to me like you had a perfect weekend. It is wonderful when the sun shines and you can get out and about. I spent most of Sunday afternoon with a book on the patio in my rocker. Hope your Monday is a great one!
