I am struggling to even begin to recap this weekend because it really all melded together. I may have relaxad less than I wanted to but I also feel like I got a lot done and still had time to really just sit on the couch and reach, watch TV and multi-task because this is me we are talking about, right?! So let’s just get to it.
Friday: I finished up the book I was reading which was pretty good. It was a YA/College age book. Brinley is the girl who never does anything wrong but struggles with her past due in part to her alcoholic mother, Ryder is the boy who kissed her during a game of truth or dare. It ended with Brinley in the pool and her hating him.
A few years later they meet up again in college and they can’t stay away from each other. Brinley’s best friend has been keeping an eye out for her and one drunken night makes a play for her. Her roomate also helps to shake her life up a little. This was an advanced readers copy but the book is due out tomorrow the 21st, so click on the picture to add it to your Goodreads list or pre-order on Amazon, it’s currently listed at $2.99 for the kindle version.
Saturday: I tried to remember to relax and enjoy the day. Considering I woke up early I needed this mug to remind me. I did get to start a new book though and watching Seamus make faces at me helped.
I did a little bit of laundry, and other chores before heading out to get some cardio. My favorite form of cardio is obviously hiking. It is just so peaceful.
It was perfect timing though because it started to drizzle just as I wwas finishing up. On the way home I headed to the grocery store to pick up some supplies for lunch. I also grabbed The Fault In Our Stars from Redbox. I made Bacon Wrapped Steak, smashed Cauliflower with Chives and Almond milk, and Pan Seared Asparagus. I noticed when putting the movie in that I still haven’t taken the sticker off my t.v., that I’ve had for almost 5 years, and I still haven’t taken it off either! Haha!
After the movie was over I watched a few episode of Friday Night Lights while working on some blogging stuff, like that new Facebook like box in the sidebar. You’re following me there right? 😉
Sunday: I read for a few hours before getting going making a to-do list and getting some stuff done. My spare bedroom took a huge hit when I re-decorated my bedroom, excess furniture, bedding and spare items got tossed in there. So my biggest to-do was cleaning it up and moving items to the basement for storage. Also the big bag on the bed is stuff I am donating, so it was off to Goodwill. I saw the copy of my brothers published stories/poems that he did back in college. So proud. Seamus also always feels the need to rub his face all over the bed which is why I keep the door closed a lot.
After that I headed out for another hike, it really is so beautiful at this course and I try to take new paths every so often to switch it up. My post-workout meal was some Apple pork chops over zoodles, recipe coming tomorrow. The rest of the night was catching up on my DVR, blogging and the Walking Dead!!
Overall it was perfect and though I would have liked to have less on my to-do list and just veg out I think this weekend was a good compromise.
How was your weekend?
