Hi friends, how was your Easter weekend? I hope it was lovely!
I have to be honest with you: if my Mom hadn’t reminded me that it’s Easter weekend, I probably would have completely blanked on it this year. Oops. I blame the fact that neither Good Friday, nor Easter Monday is a federal holiday, so I tend to forget when these holidays come up. I am glad that she reminded me though because I had to get baking for Easter Sunday. We always have sweet yeast bread for Easter (come back for the recipe tomorrow!) and I wasn’t going to skip this year.
Friday I ran my usual errands and then I had an interval training scheduled in the afternoon. The weather was perfect and it was a great 7.5 mile- workout!
We made a big pot of stew for dinner and watched TV.
Saturday was household chore day, hooray. I worked on our mid-month budget, we did a few loads of laundry and mopped and cleaned the whole house. I mean, who doesn’t like a clean kitchen? I sure do!
J had a haircut appointment in the early evening and we went out for pizza afterward. When we came home, I prepared the bread dough for the two loaves of bread that I was going to bake in the morning and then I read until after midnight. Oops. Does that ever happen to you, too?
Yesterday was low-key. I slept in, baked sweet Easter bread and a multi-grain bread and talked to my parents on the phone. Everybody had gathered at my sister’s house in the morning for brunch and an Easter egg hunt for the kids. I wish I could have been there.
I have to confess that I skipped my scheduled long run yesterday afternoon. I wish I could say that we had other commitments and that’s why I missed my run, but that wasn’t the case. In fact, we had nowhere else to be yesterday and I simply love days where I don’t have to leave the house. I feel a little bad about it, but a) it was raining non-stop (I know, excuses, excuses!) and b) I didn’t want to drive to the gym. Besides, my current book was calling my name and the couch was way too comfortable. What can I say? I poured myself another cup of coffee and gave in to laziness.
I am planning to make up for it this week though.
How was your Easter weekend? Did you do anything fun?
