scenes from the weekend
It was a good weekend. My question about weekends is, how can you make them last longer? And how can you attend to all chores and errands and still have family time? Such a conundrum! In all seriousness, I guess I managed a decent balance but I didn't get everything done I wanted to. Still I managed to get in a big hike (the full Shelf Road loop, which takes me about an hour and a half). Walking and thinking and being by myself while I walk and think--I find it so restorative. I did a fair amount of cleaning (I finally figured out mopping--I got a steam "mop" and I'm obsessed with it). We also took the boys out to Lazy Dog and to see the live action Jungle Book on Saturday night, which was so fun and festive. And on Sunday we went to the pool and swam and hot tubbed and ordered lunch (I got the turkey burger with salad).
So I'm happy and rested. I made scones and granola too, (and dinner on Sunday) so I also was domestic. I guess I really did get in a balance of things. Still wish I had more time, though.
Granola recipe is here.
Recipe for maple-oat-nut scones is coming up this week.
