Hi friends, happy Monday! Today I am joining some lovely ladies for the Not Just A Mom link-up. And the topic for March is “Day In The Life Weekend Edition’. I love reading day in the life posts because it’s so fun to catch a glimpse into someone’s day.
I Love My Weekends!
But before I jump in I’ll have to say that I didn’t do anything very exciting this weekend and I spent a lot of time at home. But after such a busy week it was exactly what I needed. I have structured weekdays and a set routine during the week with specific times for work, breaks, meals and household chores. So my weekdays are mainly all about keeping focused on fulfilling my responsibilities and meeting my obligations.
On the other hand, my weekends are much more flexible and open-ended. Sometimes I like to sleep in and other times I have fun plans to socialize with friends or family. I just love my weekends so much!! For me, they are a time to unwind and do the things that I enjoy without the pressure of a schedule or routine.
So let’s get started on what a day or two in the life weekend edition looked like for me…
A Very Early Good Morning
I really wanted to sleep in on Saturday but Sushi is so used to having breakfast at 6 am 😩. So I fed her and went back to bed for a bit longer. I couldn’t fall back asleep but it was nice to have a bit of extra time in my cozy bed.
A Late Breakfast
I made some scrambled eggs and bacon for a late breakfast.
My new Tefal non-stick pan is amazing for cooking anything. It’s such a breeze when it comes to washing off all the scrambled egg residue. Eggs are so sticky!!
Later on Steve and I sat down to watch a couple of episodes of Blue Bloods on Binge. I love this show and I’m so happy that we are watching from season one.
Steve went to work and I put a load (or two) of washing on. Never-ending laundry hmph!
I sat down for a bit and put together an Instagram reel. I am not great at posting on Instagram regularly but I do enjoy making reels.
A Late Lunch
Then it was time for a late lunch and I just went through the fridge and heated up some leftovers in a bowl. I threw in a couple of slices of tomatoes for colour and vitamins hehe.
Old YouTube Movie
While I ate my lunch I watched an old movie on YouTube. I like watching these old ‘midday movies’ that I used to watch as a teen whenever I had to stay home from school because I was sick.
Then I read some blogs and before I knew it it was time to start making dinner. I made some turkey burgers for our Saturday night dinner. And I also made some homemade wedges but forgot to take a pic.
I watched an episode of ‘The Sopranos’ and called it a night. Just before I went to bed Steve texted to say that he had to stay at work extra late. Because one of the other guys he works with had some sort of family emergency. Ah, the joys of working in hospitality!
I woke up at 7.24 am on Sunday and this time I remembered to take a screenshot of my phone. Sushi slept in and didn’t come into our bedroom meowing for breakfast. Thank you Sushi!
Blogging Then Church
I worked on the blog for a bit while I had a coffee and then it was time to go to church which started at 10.30.
New Woolworths Metro
After church, I had to pick up a couple of things from the grocery shop. And I decided to go to a new Woolworths metro store that has opened recently. It’s a bit closer to where I live and I wanted to avoid having to try and find a parking spot inside the busy Westfields where they also have a Woolworths.
I parked my car in the unfamiliar car park and followed these signs to the store. There was hardly anyone around and it felt a bit strange.
The new store looked so good and because it’s a metro it was small. Which makes it great for when you just need a couple of things as I did.
No frozen chips and now we have a poultry shortage as well.
Would you believe that I got lost when I went back down to the car park? It was so empty and every level looked the same.
I backtracked and thanked God for the signs that I had followed earlier. And I eventually found my lonely little car. Phew!!
I got home and by then Steve was awake. We had some lunch and then I went to Costco with my aunt. I didn’t really need anything but I can never say no to a trip to Costco!
My aunt stocked up on quite a few things.
They didn’t have many food-tasting stations because it was a Sunday. But they did have wheatgrass samples.
It didn’t taste bad at all, probably because it was mixed with some very sweet apple juice.
When I got home in the late afternoon I was really craving pasta. So I made a very simple mushroom and bacon pasta dish.
Sam and I had dinner together and we talked politics. We have an election coming up soon and it looks like he’s voting one way and I’m voting another. Haha! He’s excited that he gets to vote for the first time.
I cleaned up after dinner and watched a bit of television. Have you guys watched Grand Designs? It’s a British show hosted by Kevin McCloud. He follows some very ambitious building projects from individuals with big ideas for their homes. I find Kevin’s voice very soothing and it’s the perfect show to watch before bed.
And I was in bed just before 10 pm which is early for me. But one of my goals for this year is to get more rest and sleep.
And that brings me to the end of the day in the life weekend edition. Which was really two days in the life. Thanks so much for being here today and reading along. I hope that you have a wonderful week.
