Weekend Update: Days of Nothing Special Edition

Good morning, kittens!

I am sitting here staring out the window wondering if those are actually snow flurries I'm seeing or if it's time to schedule an eye appointment. I love my occasional Monday off :-)

My weekend was full of not doing much. On Friday, after work, I stopped by the Whole Foods and picked up a frozen pizza and some pistachio gelatto (and a box of wine and some bourbon from the likker store). I ate pizza, drank wine, and watched "Horrible Bosses," which had a few laugh out loud moments ... so I give it 3 stars!

Saturday, I went for a 5 mile run. I set a couple PRs: Fastest 5K (25:38) and Fastest Mile (7:54). I also have run 100 miles since getting my new Nike+ GPS watch for Xmas. When I got back, I borrowed K-Factor's blender and made a green smoothie:

I used some of my credit card points to buy a new blender (it is small, only holds 14 oz) and zhuzher. As soon as I get them, I am totally going to zhuzh some soup!

Then, I finished my taxes! Hello, refund (in a couple of weeks). It's not as big as last year's refund (boo. I blame Republicans ... also, I blame Montgomery County's ridiculously high tax rate). But, I will be donating 10% to some local charities and still have enough to put into savings for a Rainy Day and a New Pair of Shoes (What? It's almost Spring! The Shoe-atorium is about OVER! YAY!).

Around 5PM, I headed to Downtown Silver Spring to meet SCGB and his BF at Adega for drinks. Along the way, I saw some signs of spring:

Croci!I also saw two dead robins. I didn't take pix of them though.

After drinks (and some food), I headed home, blobbed on the sofa, ate some food, drank more wine ... Y'know, the usual.

On Sunday, I went to the pottery studio. I didn't throw anything new, but I did do some trimming and handle-making (see photo above). After that, I came home, tidied up a little (a very little), ironed ten shirts, cooked some brussels sprouts for dinner, and spent the rest of the evening blobbing on the sofa.

Today, I've been to the Trader Joe's. I'm thinking of heading up to Adega for a boozy lunch. And, then, I'm going to blob on the sofa until dinnertime. After dinner, I'll be heading to pottery class.

Good times.

Hope you had an awesome weekend and a superfun Monday!



  1. Glad you skipped the dead robins.

    Yay for Monday's off. Wish I had one.

    Hey Mr. "nothing special weekend," you are something special!

    You inspired me to check out the book One Day -- first chapter reminds me of my time in Ireland for my junior year of college!

  3. I have a great broccoli soup recipe you can zhuz up. I'll send it to you.
    Horrible Bosses was a cute movie. Enjoy your refund!
