Love Weekends: A little more human

pizza

This past week was a doozy and I’ve been looking forward to the weekend since Tuesday. I’d been feeling a little bit like a work zombie. Come home, sleep, wake up, go to work. It never ends! But when I get feeling overwhelmed I like to remind myself that the weekend is near and Friday night is always pizza night.

My garden has still been producing plenty of veggies for salads, snacks and of course, pizza!

On Sundays George and I like to wake up late and make a good, hearty breakfast. I just started scrambling my eggs with butter instead of milk after reading that one of the Iron Chefs does it that way. I’m never going back to scrambling eggs with milk. Never ever. The butter makes such a difference. I’ve also started putting a little pumpkin spice in my morning coffee. It’s never to early to pumpkin all the things, right?!

And don’t judge my paper plates! Weekends are for easy livin’, ya’ll.

How was your weekend? Let me know in the comments!

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!
