Equal Measure Weekend Recap

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you enjoyed the weekend and I hope anyone in the path of New England's hurricane is safe.  I peeked at a webcam in Mystic CT around 3pm and saw it was pretty calm.  I'm hoping it wasn't as bad as they were predicting for those in the vicinity though I saw many were without power.

Our Saturday was spent reading retirement crap, learning about ETF's and hybrid life insurance policies with long term care riders.  Scintillating.  It wasn't a super relaxing day but I suppose any bit of knowledge and a path we can forge is better than relaxing.

Sunday we lazed around in bed a little bit before the Mr grabbed our grocery pickup.  It was about 10:30am so we decided to take a walk around 'Grandma's condo' before it got unbearably hot.

We got in almost 3 miles, chatted with Grandma, and made a mental note to replace her memorial flag since it's taken a pretty good beating from the sun this year.  We were super hot and exhausted (especially since we hadn't eaten yet) and headed over to DQ to cool down with our last small cone of the summer.

Then it was time to head home to get a cool shower.  After that, we had caulipower veggie pizza and a salad for lunch.  The Mr decided it was naptime so I had Fantasy Island on in the background while working on this and answering some emails.  All I knew was it was nice to have our workout done for the day and we could putz around without it hanging over our heads.  Later on, we settled in with an episode or two of Chateau DIY which we haven't watched in a few weeks and our Sunday night usual of Renovation Island.

That brings us to now.  I've got some work crap to get done today and I need to work on my water.  My calories were SUPER low last week and no real water drank to speak of and the scale showed it but I was happy it threw the Mr a bone.  So it was a weekend of equal measure of productivity and relaxation for once.

  1. Yeah that was a good way to describe the weekend. That walk was tough by the end due to the heat and cooling off with a cone might sound counter intuitive. But I believe you should treat yourself within reason and we fit the calories into our day without a problem and I am proud of that.

  2. Saturday was the county fair. It's not as much fun as it was when I was younger, but still fun for the kiddo so we met some of his friends there and they rode the rides.
    This was my last weekend of freedom, kids come back to school today. I'm not ready, and since it's going to be 100+ degrees so it's definitely not feeling like summer is over. But I guess if I want that paycheck I'm going to have to.

  3. It was a really nice weekend. The hubs had the last minute notice of not having to work on Saturday so that was a wonderful surprise for him. I did the shopping and laundry on Friday so the weekend was free of that stuff. I did some gift wrapping and paperwork, exercised, then got lost in a book and watched some football and racing. Sunday the hubs ran to the store for me while I was at work and then he did all the vacuuming and washed dishes while I slept after work. It was a nice relaxed pace and we got to enjoy some puppers time. =o)

  4. A friend came down for her birthday - so it wasn't the weekend I had planned, but it was a good one. Maybe a bit too busy, but that's ok!
