We had the best weekend here in our area. It was sunny, warm, and just plain beautiful. I have been known to be energized by sunlight which drives my husband and son a bit bonkers at times, but this past weekend it paid off. We got so much done it’s crazy but so worth it. Every year around this time we all want to get out and have some fun after being locked up in our house all winter long. Although, I am a stickler to the rule of work before play. Which is exactly what we did this weekend.
Our chore list consisted of:
go to the laundry mat to wash all rugs and big comforters….done!
shred cheese to freeze….done!
swap snowblower and shovels for lawnmower and rakes/clean out the shed….done!
wash curtains throughout the house, vacuum out both vehicles and get car washes….done, done, done!
place the order for wine slush to be prepared for summer…..done!
laminate workout diagrams to hang in my home gym for future use…..done!
Our Play List Was:
Ahhh, all the work for the day is complete. Now it was time to do something fun. Originally my husband and I were going to do something together but it was so nice outside that we decided to go separate directions for a few hours. He went fishing to one of his favorite fishing holes
and I went for a solo hike to one of my favorite trails.
I had been hoping all week that I would arrive at this trail and it would be dry enough to hike the entire distance. Thankfully when I arrived it was exactly what I was hoping to find…dry. It was also so alive with Spring, from eagles flying overhead,
to geese looking for open water,
and caterpillars coming to life again after a long winter.
It was so great to just be outside, feeling good, and breathing fresh air that I even sat on the bench near the end of the trail for awhile and just listened to all the life around me.
It was quite the weekend. We accomplished so much, each had our own bit of fun, and even found time to relax and enjoy life before another work week begins.
What is your favorite thing to do when Spring weather comes?
Do you work before play or play and then work?
