A Weekend OFF

I honestly cannot remember the last time I had a full weekend off with nothing scheduled.  Nothing we needed to do and no place we needed to be.  It felt almost weird.  But I quickly got used to it!

I was up long before the girls were, just me and my old man kitty.  I fixed myself a hot cup of coffee, lit a candle and the oil lamp, and we watched it rain.  It rained pretty much all day squashing any ideas for me to get outside and work in the yard.  So instead I watched YouTube videos.

I watched a lot of YouTube videos for inspiration.  I've been in need of some inspiration lately.  I needed some cooking inspiration, crafting inspiration, home improvement inspiration, gardening inspiration, but mostly I watched travel and RV videos.  Which got me really excited about my not too distant future plans.  As you can well imagine.

I made a very yummy keto pancake breakfast for us, or rather brunch.  Okay it was lunch.

I was also inspired to bake some delicious cinnamon "sugar" keto cookies.  They are really good so I'll be sharing that recipe very soon.  I also made a really good keto dinner that I'll also be sharing with you as well.  It was good.  And I did do some meal prepping for the girls.  I used up a bunch of odds and ends of leftovers from meals we had prepared during the week.

Later, after dinner, I turned on Netflix and watched a movie.  Then I called it a day.  Did I get much done?  Other than fertilizing and watering my houseplants that would be a NO.  But I did get rested up and I got inspired to get off my butt and get some things done around here.  Just not right away.  Hee, hee.

Sunday I was much more productive.  I got busy right away and did some serious meal prepping for the week which took me about two hours start to finish, including cleanup.  When I was done I had an entire week's worth of lunches and dinners made up for all three of us.  I'll share more about that later in the week.

After Sunday chores, trimming my bangs, Sunday dinner and washing dishes again that pretty much wrapped up my weekend.  A hot shower and warm pajamas and I was ready for bed and ready to start my work week.


  1. Everyone needs a totally unproductive day to recharge the batteries and restock the idea pool. Glad you took the time for yourself!

  2. Pancake breakfast/brunch/lunch ... heehee, love it.

    Only two hours prep work to have a week's worth of meals? I'm anxious to read that post!

    I'm envious of the rain you got. Yesterday and today in SoCal it's in the 90's, too warm for me.


    1. We need the rain and I'm glad we got it. I'll try to send a little your way. ;)

  3. Occasionally, we all need a day to do nothing as it energizes us to do something the next day/week.

  4. Sometimes we all need that time to recharge...and a rainy weekend is the perfect opportunity! Now you're ready for when the sun is shining!!! :-)
