NUMBER OF PHOTOS FOR SATURDAY | ABOUT 20
It usually takes me a couple days to settle in to the kids being away. It's at that point (a day or so after they leave) that I take a really deep breath and start imagining all the things I could do around the house.
Some weekends I take the opportunity to catch up or get ahead on work (feels like that's been the majority of the time lately). Some weekends I do nothing but lay on the couch and watch movies or I go to the movies (either by myself or with friends). Some weekends I spend time with Aaron and his kids or we head off on an adventure together. Some weekends I cook or organize or get all caught up on the laundry (I did four loads today).
This weekend I've got a little bit of everything going on: work, cleaning/organizing, time with Aaron and fun with friends.
Here's a look at my Saturday:
Started the day by picking a bunch of tomatoes. These are the volunteers that came up on their own after I let last year's decompose in this raised bed. Pretty cool for doing nothing but giving them a little water and fertilizer this summer.
I brought them inside and made BLT sandwiches.
Aaron added scrambled eggs and cheese to his sandwich. Mine was classic.
Listening to the start of the University Of Oregon football game. Two cups of coffee + Pinterest browsing for me.
George. Napping. The usual.
I kept the laundry going today and folded a bunch of clothes.
Working in the early afternoon. Listening to Mumford & Sons.
My friend Kim and I did a bit of wandering and chatting and purchasing (Gap and TJ Maxx) in the afternoon. I originally met Kim in college at Oregon State (just about 20!!! or so years ago) and it's been really fun reconnecting and getting the chance to hang out over the last few years. I enjoy her.
She's the one that thought Aaron and I should meet.
She's good at that kind of stuff.
After that I had some noodles (that would be Top Ramen) for dinner, did a bit more work in my office and then headed over to Aaron's to hang out and watch a movie.
