Love Weekends: A Little Alone Time

lake dusk George has been away for work since Wednesday, so I’ve been spending a lot of quality alone time with myself. Not in a depressing way, I quite enjoy being alone. I’ve listened to music that George hates (electronic, dance) and watched TV shows and musicals that George hates (Downtown Abbey and Fiddler on the Roof.) I’ve had quite a good time, actually.

I actually had time to take a walk around a gorgeous, local lake. I saw a heron in flight! And I dog-watched. I’ve been a bit of a crazy pet lady lately. heron over lake lake I wasn’t totally alone all weekend. I celebrated a friend’s birthday on Saturday and I, of course, talked to my plants. I’m becoming a crazy garden lady too.

My ladies! banana peppers and zucchini

I cannot even express how proud I am to actually have grown something. It may sound like I’m exaggerating, but I seriously consider having a producing garden to be one of my biggest achievements in life.  reading on kindle

I also had time to finish the Divergent series. I’m a little disappointed in how it ended, but I’m a little disappointed in the end of most YA novels.

Although I accomplished so much this weekend, I now can’t wait until George gets back. I’m actually starting to really miss him. And even though I get much less accomplished when he’s around, he’s a welcome distraction.

What did you do this weekend? Let me know in the comments!

Love Weekends: First Signs of Spring

Pathway in the park I don’t think I’ve ever been so desperate for warm weather in my life. Sunday was such a relief. George and I went to a local park to really get the most of the 70 degree weather. We saw way too many cute dogs and I have a terrible case of puppy fever. At one point I almost stole an adorable brindle pug whose head was way too small for his body. Puppy fever is real people.

ducks How was your weekend? Did you get a tiny taste of spring?
