I feel as though I hibernated all weekend. It was so cold I just could not force myself out the door at all on Saturday. I spent the day in yoga pants, which is about like wearing pajamas all day. I do notice that lots of people have no problem going about their public business in actual pajama pants. Fortunately for the world and those who might run into me, I am not among them.
On Sunday we did go out for breakfast. We have the habit of full breakfast on Sunday mornings. It was nice to have a good breakfast (I had scrambled eggs with spinach, mushrooms, and tomatoes with two slices of bacon on the side) and not have to clean up afterwards. It is such a messy meal to cook, which is why toast or cereal works for me the rest of the week. However, we did notice that the days of going out for a ten dollar breakfast are no more.
I read two books over the weekend--Nicholas Evans: The Lucky One and Tina Fey: Bossy Pants. I'm not saying that I am proud of this accomplishment. I'm just saying--it was a slothful weekend.
Oh, I did put together my new vacuum cleaner. I didn't use it, but I put it together. My mother used to have this thing about Sunday being a day of rest. It annoyed me when I was working full time and weekends were the chance to do the housework, shopping, laundry, etc. Now, I kind of like the concept.
I also worked a bit on writing. I signed up for a short class at UVM to give myself a bit of a kick in the butt. Margaret from the library writers' group insists that I need to kick Mike out of the shared office and stake it out as my writing space. I don't really feel the need for that, but I do feel the need for my own laptop. Somehow I believe that will give me the sense of my space with portability. Our house isn't terribly large, but it is certainly enough space to get out of each other's way when needed.
I did not take the poetry workshop that is an annual event for National Poetry Month here at our library. I knew I would miss too many sessions. I will attend the reading tonight, though.
So I have cleaned the bathroom and the kitchen and made up a long grocery list to get the cupboards restocked after being away for three and a half months. Today looks like it will be a bit more productive. Maybe I needed a lazy weekend.
