What’s a Weekend?

Unlike the Dowager Countess, I know a weekend when I see one.

In fact, I just had a pretty great weekend… nothing particularly special happened, we didn’t go anywhere, we didn’t spend a lot of money, but it was filled with happy moments.  I’m not sure what’s changed, but something has shifted in my thoughts and lately I’m feeling rather content with where I am in life – for once there are no major life changes on the horizon, and I’m just enjoying the day to day.

I’d like to remember this sunny weekend – in pictures (and a few words):

Let’s start with Friday – I won this huge framed picture in our office raffle!  Now to find a place for it…

I needed some music to get me through the afternoon – after a late lunch with the co-workers, we were all a little sleepy!

Friday night, breakfast for dinner.

Saturday – I woke up early, read a book while eating breakfast (my favorite), and ran a few errands.  I sneakily snapped a pic of this lady leaving the local cat clinic – there’s a cat in that rolling backpack!

I worked on a new addition for my nautical wall – more wonky improv piecing!

Saturday afternoon, I needed a break.  The weather was so nice – warm and breezy.  I decided to test out the fire escape – and lucky me, it’s the perfect place to get some sun and read a book!

I set up a picnic blanket and a box of necessities – a book, skittles, and my phone.

I even wore shorts for the first time since I’ve moved here – my legs are blinding!  (That’s what Instagram filters are for – much more flattering!)

(Cora was jealous, of course.)

Saturday night – tacos and margaritas!  Rouge always makes me feel fancy – must be the chandeliers!

Sunday morning – worked on a couple Pinterest-inspired projects.  Vinegar was involved.

And completely separately – green for St. Patrick’s Day!  (Posts coming soon… gotta get my thoughts typed up.)

The time change put us a bit off schedule so we didn’t make it to church in time for the service, but we went to small group after a quick lunch.  No matter what mindset I’m in before going, I always feel so refreshed afterwards.

My favorite part of Sunday is walking home – we’re always full of conversation after small group discussions, the weather has been really nice lately, and I love the buildings and people watching in our neighborhood.  We stopped by the pet store for food and litter.

I love the fancy pigeons, too.

I talked to my parents on the phone Sunday afternoon.  Sam deep-cleaned the litter boxes and I vacuumed – not my favorite chores, but at least the place feels super clean afterwards.  The cats weren’t very grateful, but we hung out with them anyway.

For dinner, we made fettuccine alfredo and watched West Wing.

It was a pretty perfect weekend.
