Weekend Events/Food/Happenings

Wow what a busy weekend. Ours technically started on Friday evening when we found ourselves at our local hardware store staring at different wood stains. Yeh, we have a project happening around here and I can’t wait to tell you all about it later this week.

I finally got to use my new cookbook holder my husband so nicely made me after I complained one evening that my cookbook would not stay open to the correct page while making a recipe. It’s amazing to me how he can go to his work room and whip something like this out in minutes. I guess he works with wood like I work with kids….its comes pretty easy to us both.

Saturday I was solo all day since he needed to squeeze in at least one more ice fishing day before the ice is unsafe for the season. Plus, two of his best friends have been waiting to fish with him but with work travel lately fishing has not been able to be worked out for them. Being solo for me is not a bad thing though. I get so much stuff done when I am alone. I began my day at yoga…..I so needed this yoga session. Then I came home changed and off to the car wash I went.

Living in WI does not make keeping your vehicle clean in the winter and easy task. And if there is one thing I dislike with a passion it’s my vehicle dirty. Being it’s winter, my only option is the car wash…just one more thing I miss during the winter months is being able to wash our vehicles in our own driveway. Soon…real soon. Anyhow, while I was sitting in the car wash I began thinking about treating myself to lunch but was also tossing around the idea of going back home to grab my husbands vehicle and treat him to a clean car come Monday morning. He was kind enough to treat me to midweek tulips after work one evening since he knew I was struggling through this week with the winter blues…so I figured I owed him one and a clean car would make him pretty happy. The tulips sure brightened my day with the melting snow making a nice mud mess outside.

As for that lunch, I did end up treating myself to my favorite deli in the area and got myself my favorite sandwich that I ended up eating in my husbands clean car since the restaurant was fully packed with people.

After lunch I came home, cleaned the garage, went for a 3 mile neighborhood walk, took a shower, put on my lounge clothes, made BBQ chicken pizza, and called it a day. IMG_8713

And then Sunday arrived. We already knew the weather was going to be nasty so I had planned all my indoor stuff for Sunday. House cleaning, haircut for my husband, laundry, and food prep all happened while my husband finished up the home project with that stain we picked out Friday evening.

Food prep for this week looks like this:

I decided tuna pasta salad would be my choice lunch this week so I threw a quick batch together.

Plus, I made a dozen hard boiled eggs then cleaned and chopped all the needed veggies for the week. I also sauteed some cabbage and spinach to have with eggs.

That sums up my weekend…..super productive which made me feel pleased by Sunday evening.
