What a weekend. I love having relaxing weekends, but sometime’s there’s just way too much to do!
We had a 5k on Saturday morning, then we came home and got our house ready for a party my husband was hosting. I went to a friends house and we had a mini vegan feast. I got home after midnight and holy cannolis was I tired.
Sunday was just as busy. I went to the store, then came home and baked a loaf and a dozen muffins of zucchini bread (to use up our last zucchini of the season, which was HUGE), and a loaf and a dozen muffins of banana bread (using some bananas that were getting a bit shady). We also pickled our entire Thai chili harvest. I think we’re getting more over the next few weeks but we picked 30ish peppers and got them in a jar for later use. Then I made dinner, of course, which was just some run of the mill spaghetti with my usual homemade sauce. Whew! A day in the kitchen will wear you out.
Needless to say, I didn’t have a lot of time to myself this weekend. I didn’t get any reading, writing, or knitting done BUT I did get a lot of all three done last week. I’ve made a bit of slow progress on my book, and I almost have a Christmas hat done. I’m just plugging away at my goals, hoping to have better luck meeting them this time around.
Writing has been going pretty smoothly. I feel like I’m writing complete garbage, but that’s to be expected. I’ll probably be semi impressed when I go back to start drafting, but for now I have the self confidence of a writer, which means zero.
Here’s a kitty.
