When I woke up this AM, I said to myself…. youdoloveMondaysyoudoloveMondaysyoudoloveMondaysyoudoloveMondays
(Ug. But I don’t really love Mondays. obviously.)
So I’m truthfully starting the week with the weekend close at heart.
You know how you have a desk somewhere in the house, that is supposed to be your home office… but you end up sitting in a non-related desk place?
Try as I might I can’t get my computer off the Kitchen nook table:
It’s even funnier because I finally got around to unpacking my office area this weekend… the one that’s supposed to be my real office space. There’s a permanent home for my computer in a nice little nook in the basement, complete with pencil cup, file folders and Oxford Dictionary… I’m not sure why I can’t stay down there yet – maybe it has yet to become a routine, or maybe it’s because I’m trying to avoid listening to Breaking Bad which Mike burned through on the weekend (that show is crazy tense… while I refuse to watch it, I can’t help but ask about plot development from around the corner… but any time I’ve tried to actually sit and watch it I end up anxiously pacing around the room.)
So currently in my home office:
At some point during the day on Saturday, I finally scraped myself away from the enthralling world that is Pinterest… (which I’m sadly still not sure I understand the purpose of, despite having sunk a good few hours into) and went out to tackle a few real life interests in my back yard.
I replanted the lavender:
Watched some stuff grow:
Watched some stuff dry:
And Best part of the weekend?
1) I found the pair of Steve Madden shoes that I fell in love with in NYC last DECEMBER, on sale in “little ol’ 2 -decades-behind-fashion-wise”, Ottawa !! (And I’m talking like 60% off sale… it was basically fashion destiny).
2) Lemonade (which made fixing the ever present leak in our pool that much more bearable):
3) This newly found recipe for creamy cucumber avocado salad dressing:
4) And lastly, (but really firstly), a wonderful night out with friends at the Greece Sing-a-Long show at the Bytown Cinema.
