Could a Monday begin any sweeter than cozying up on the couch under a blanket at 10 a.m., still in your pajamas with your first cup of coffee in hand?
I don’t think so!
I am really thankful that I do get the federal holidays off. Those extra-long weekends definitely feel like a blessing, and it must have been the most relaxing weekend in a while. Of course, I ran my usual errands, did the laundry, cleaned up around the apartment, and went to the gym!, but besides that I took it easy and just relaxed in front of the TV with my crochet hook, yarn and a book.
Here are a few things that make the weekend really feel like a weekend after my own heart…
★ sleeping in without setting an alarm
★ reading blogs and responding to emails in my pajamas with a fresh steaming cup of hot coffee next to me
★ having a phone marathon with my family members (because the weekend is the only time where we can really talk extensively due to the time difference)
★ taking my camera out for a stroll around the neighborhood
★ checking out the local farmer’s market for fresh produce for the upcoming week
★ having fresh bread from the European bakery for breakfast
★ watching movies and mindless TV shows
★ falling asleep on the couch and waking up at 4 a.m. just to change location to the bedroom and crawl back under the blankets for a few more hours
★ spontaneously deciding to go for a walk in the sunshine (or not, if it is raining!)
★ going out to brunch with our good friends
★ just being able to do whatever I feel like at any moment
