Three Days

I've loved every second of this three-day weekend and wish it wouldn't end. (Clearly, as I'm stretching it out as late as possible.) It's been a quiet one for me, and very self indulgent. Over the past few days, I . . .
  • Watched a few of the games in the NBA finals - go Pacers! (I know we're gonna see a Heat/Spurs match up. I'm just enjoying Indy.) 
  • Had dinner out with a friend.
  • Spent some time thinking of our service members - past and present - and the sacrifices they make so that they rest of us can have peaceful weekends. 
  • Went to an Al-Anon meeting - it was truly amazing, like it almost always is.
  • Went to the Lego store for my nephews birthday . . . and got myself a little something while I was there :)
  • Watched two documentaries - an ESPN "30 for 30" episode about Allen Iverson (my god - racism; that poor kid), and one about the early days of the AIDS epidemic, called How to Survive a Plague - it was outstanding, 5 stars. Thank God for Act Up. 
  • Went on two tiny little jogs. It's something. 
  • Ate an obscene amount of froyo.
  • Talked with my mom and my sister. And texted a bit with my baby bro. Nice to connect with family. 
  • Listened to 3 or 4 episodes of This American Life. I sure love it.
  • Slept in until 10:00 AM one day! Holy crap. (Have I mentioned my new black-out shade in my bedroom? True love.)
  • Spent some time sewing a gift for a friend, and then started on some patchwork. I'm not sure what I'll use it for, and it sure is time intensive (good LORD), but I really like the effect.
  • Didn't think much about work or other issues. Mostly relaxed. That was nice. 


  1. What a lovely way to pass the time :-)

  2. Sounds like a good weekend. I need a hobby because I was getting restless this weekend. I finally felt ok once I started in on some house projects.

  3. That sounds like an awesome weekend. And I am jealous of all your fabric. It was all I could do to keep from petting it while I was there. It's just so pretty. And that's enough weird for one comment.

  4. I've noticed the same effect with a recently-acquired blackout blind in my bedroom. It's difficult to get out of bed in the mornings.

    I'm beginning to believe that I'm solar-powered, which would explain why I've experienced chronic fatigue since I moved to Yorkshire.
