Last weekend was an ordinary weekend, but I still feel compelled to share a quick recap. Just because it felt like our first real summer weekend, I guess, and because it was fun and I didn’t want the weekend to end and because I want to do it all over again.
Fridays, on my regular day off, we usually get all of the errands out of the way, so that we have the whole weekend free to do other things. I personally am a big fan of having a day to do all – or most of the chores – so the weekend can actually be used as it is intended to be used: for relaxing and recuperating from the busy week. Who’s with me?
Saturday morning I got up early for a 9-mile run to a) beat the heat and b) be back in time for the World Cup match between Germany and Sweden.
Did you watch? Oh, what a nail-biter it was! This was almost too much for my fragile nerves. The winning goal was scored in stoppage time at the 96th minute! Sure, by all means, just keep us in suspense until the last possible moment, Toni Kroos! Jeez.
Definitely made our day though. I am pretty sure you could hear J’s victory scream around the neighborhood. Ha.
Then we were so emotionally exhausted that we both took an afternoon nap.
We barbecued again later in the evening after the sun was down and temperatures were bearable. I had gotten fresh pork belly at the butcher shop (that I had discovered last year) and we also grilled some zucchini and had Caprese salad and fresh bread.
This really feels like summer to me! Now, if we would all just get a summer break from work. I think it should be mandatory, don’t you?
I finished a book (which I loved) and started a new one, I watched baseball and we went for a walk around the park. On Sunday evenings, they have “concerts at the park” during the summer months and they’re such fun.
How was your weekend? Does it feel like summer where you are?
