After an unbelievably productive and totally enjoyable weekend at home, this week begins with a Monday version of The Sunday Salon. Over a quiet dinner at our favorite restaurant Friday evening, we decided to tackle a few outdoor projects. Saturday morning began with a run to the hardware store... and the rest is a blur. By Sunday evening, I was amazed at all that had been accomplished.
- yard work galore
- major garden clean-up
- experimented with two new recipes
- gazed at the Super Moon
- finished reading The Makioka Sisters
- laundry, and the other usual indoor tasks
- read a few letters in Clarissa
- relaxed by the lake with a glass of wine
As it turned out, I was also unplugged for the entire weekend. It wasn't planned, but there was no Weekend Cooking post, no Sunday Salon, and no blog reading. Sure, I popped into twitter for a moment on Saturday and took a quick look at Pinterest on Sunday, but overall it was a technology-free weekend. We didn't even turn on the television! Graduations, college reunions, and apartment hunting with Daughter #1 loom on the horizon, so this won't happen again any time soon. But what a great weekend - at home and unplugged.
