When Monday rolls around I always am asked, “How was your weekend” – from the people who become a random 2nd family.
“Spectacular, always.” (Duh!) – We live for weekends over here…
Yesterday Oso, Evan and I took a super long walk; we even dropped off Oso at Mom’s quarter way through because his coat makes him uncomfortable in the sun.
Evan, naturally has it made, he loves the BOB:
It was an awesome way to unwind; and I came home and felt an abnormal calm that I haven’t felt in a while. Getting back in the fitness saddle puts me in such a better place. I didn’t completely fall off of my fitness train but it has been a bit of a struggle to fit everything in. With Evan growing so fast; I feel like I miss so much during the day with him it is hard to leave him at night… Slowly I’m finding a balance and his super independence makes me feel slightly better (well, not really but I’m trying to reach myself it is ok to have “me” time)…
I’m also getting better about meal prep and incorporating super fresh HOME GROWN ingredients :)
Today I planted some rosemary, oregano, basil and thyme into a new planter. I’ll post before and after pictures of what I used to have in my window… my new collection not only will flavor chicken tonight but it is pretty to look at while hanging by the sink.
What do you love about weekends? We love the simple stuff.. hanging out, cleaning up… Thinking of new projects around the house and hanging in our awesome backyard.
Oh one final thought… Weekends put me in a natural good mood… any other day running to Starbucks to get coffee because Hector forgot to pick it up the night before would probably make me angry… But today I took the time to enjoy a short car ride to treat him instead:
