Ah.... weekends. I wish I had more of them in my life. I am starting a new job after I graduate in June I am going to have to work on Saturdays, and I am having a really hard time reconciling myself to losing my Saturdays - after all, I only just discovered them!
Let me explain.... I have a horrible habit of working too much. I used to have three jobs, and for years I worked weekends so that I could have my weekdays for school. But last September I quit the job that I hated (best thing I ever did!!) and suddenly I had all these lovely, lovely weekends where I could go bowling with friends, sleep in and do the crossword puzzle with T, and just plain relax.
So, I keep trying to tell myself that it is going to be okay - that I *will* get enough leisurely brunches and back-yard hangout time on Sundays...
Unfortunately, I can't really enjoy the last few Saturdays I have left... you see, I am going to graduate in just five weeks! And I have so much left to do on my poor thesis project (which I have definitely been neglecting) and my portfolio. So it looks like I will be spending my next few weekends at school working. Bah!
But T had a wonderful idea. He came home from work on Friday and said that we needed to have a wonderful weekend - sort of a last hurrah if you will - full of all the things we love to do!
And we did!!!!
On Saturday morning we did a little antiquing (definitely more my fun than T's) and found these awesome metal drawers... after a little cleaning (they were covered in spiderwebs and rust!) they became the perfect shelves to house my little pitcher collection.
We caught up on Season 3 of 24 (thank God for netflix - we could never wait a whole season... the suspense kills!)
We also went dumpster diving.... and found a great stash of old pallets and 2x4s - perfect for fueling our fire obsession. (the forecast calls for rain all next week - and we have to keep the kitties warm!) T was so proud of me - I swung that hammer and pulled out nails like a pro! (but boy oh boy am I sore today!)
And then on Sunday morning we had the most amazing *Huevos Rancheros a la Robinson* as we dubbed them. Scrambled eggs with tons of fresh red peppers and sun dried tomato, black beans, and to top it all off - a super yummy *salsa* of avocado, orange, and mango.
