The weekend

My productive Friday lead to a very unproductive weekend unfortunately.

What I should have done:
Made tomato sauces to freeze.
Made cheese for stuffed meatballs and a variation of a pasta dish I am making this week.
Finalize at least one recipe for the cookbook.

What I actually did:
Watch movies.
Lie on our super comfy, “new to us” mattress with Roxie and Lila.
Went out and drank a few glasses of wine and a few martinis.
Fell slightly short on the first workout of Week 3 of C25K.
Went to Fleet Feet and spent $120 dollars on new running shoes and socks.
Put a ton of apps and workout songs on my Iphone.
Made a big batch of homemade dog food for Roxie.

I shouldn’t complain because I am sure that deep down I needed a super lazy weekend and I think it has revived me to get a few things done this week. I am hoping to convince Nathan to help me buy the materials for our raised veggie garden bed this weekend. I want to build it myself but I know I am going to need his help with some of the materials. Then my biggest problem will just be figuring out what to plant besides the virtually no fail tomatoes. I see a library trip for many gardening books in my near future.

I think everyone needs a lazy day now and then. It's a great way to recharge. Good for you!!

It does feel good to be lazy... But it sounds like you still got some things accomplished!

You're far more active than I am...if I have a day or 2 at the house, I rarely do a thing!!

Uh, that was a lazy weekend? You make me look bad.

I need to talk to you about this raised veggie garden. I would love to do one since we rent and our yard is a mess. Where did you find the info on making it? Also, do you know how soon I would have to have it planted? Ok, I'll just email you.
