The past weekend was relatively uneventful, which was exactly what I needed.
On Friday evening, my husband and I rented a DVD of Dave Chapelle's Block Party and ended up watching all of the extras, too.
On Saturday morning, I got up around 8:30 a.m. and went to a large farmers' market to get produce. I bought tomatoes, zucchini, green beans, eggplant, a green pepper, sweet corn and new potatoes from a combination of Mennonites, hippies and small-town farmers. I bought stuff until my shopping bag got too heavy to carry, and I only spent about $9.00.
I went home by way of a regular grocery store (I needed bacon and I hadn't thought to buy Mennonite bread) and made veggie omelets for breakfast.
The rest of the day wasn't quite so productive. I meant to get a few things done, but I was kind of tired and it was easy to laze around and watch it rain, which it did most of the afternoon and early evening.
I finally got moving again around 6:45, just as the rain stopped. I had a ticket to the roller derby, so I went there and met up with a group of friends. I sat on the floor at the edge of the rink until a falling roller girl came barreling into me. After that, I decided I'd stand.
Foregoing the after-party in favor of an early bedtime, I managed to sleep until 8:30 Sunday morning and then from 8:30 until 10 on the couch when it turned out I wasn't really ready to get up yet.
After one more trip to the grocery store, I spent much of the day cooking. I made breakfast, salsa, two dishes for a Soroptimist Club Ronald McDonald House dinner, and ended the day grilling burgers and steaming corn and new potatoes for our dinner.
It wasn't the most productive weekend I've ever had, but at least I got a decent amount of rest. Now I just need to make it through one more work week before the four-day weekend!
