I did a whole lot of stuff that didn't seem to add up to much this weekend.
I did a whole slew of things on a list that did not even include the laundry and straightening and things like that. I certainly made a lot of dishes for the little bit of cooking that I did. Interestingly, I discovered that I have no less than 15 individual containers of lunch things in the two freezers- so for the next 3 weeks I do not and can not really, do a lot of cooking on the weekend. I have at least 2 kinds of soup, a few baked rice, some red lentil sauce, some greens and beans and then there is some couscous and lentils, and cooked beans..... I think I am forgetting something, but you get the idea. I made some pickled beets, some fresh beet and carrot salad (to use up the whole beets that I buy ONLY for the beet greens) and a batch of hummus to use up the chickpeas I also discovered in my freezer. Along with some baked tofu, I am set for a while!
I washed a big sinkful of dishes at least 4 times this weekend- and really that is the drawback of cooking. However, the fresh food is worth it. And good grief the clothes that I washed. Last I checked there were only two of us living here. I wonder who is slipping their clothes into my laundry basket. I think they need to stop, especially the little woman who gets all those workout clothes dirty.
I did go work out, I did some yoga, I snowshoed..... but the winter blah feeling has hit. Not even a round of online shopping did much to help, and I didn't think that eating was going to help so I didn't. I think I should probably go to bed!
At least I got some pictures taken, and I had a few great conversations via phone and on a device or two. I think I should just call it a good if uneventful weekend and call it a night. I do have that book club book that needs some reading and there is always a blog to pay attention to! :)
I hope your weekend included some joy along with the ordinary weekend lack of excitement. I guess sort of boring is ok sometimes.
And coming up this week:
Scenery painting commences. Stay tuned!
** weirdness in a stat
I occasionally check in on my stats for my blog and SO strange- my last blog post, my snowshoe post had 191 hits on it! WHAT?? The most I ever have had before is like 48 or something like that. VERY unusual. I wish there was a way to check out the specifics on that! freaky! Ok I'm officially mystified, but that's ok.
