Weekend Recap: Stayed Home


We slept until about 11:30am.  I honestly can't remember the last time we did that.  I credit the room darkening curtains that I just bought along with 2 late nights in a row.  Ha ha!  We had leftover Thai food for "brunch" at about 3pm and then we were going to go read in the park before we remembered that we have a yard.  So we just put a blanket out and read books.  Staying home meant staying connected to wifi so there was also a lot of intagramming and pandora listening happening.  Staying home also meant we could sit out until it got dark because of the proximity to our own bathroom and refrigerator.  When we finally went in we had a pizza and movie night.  I convinced Steve that he needed to watch Rosemary's Baby because it is so creepy and awesome.  I'm happy to report that he agrees with me.

Here I am sitting with a pile of all of my electronics.
Steve has been reading every Frank Herbert book in existence.
City Bunny!!!

On Sunday we got up at a normal time and made individual brunches.  Then I read and Steve played video games for a couple of hours.  We did actually leave the house to go for a walk in the afternoon because I needed a break from reading.  By the way, I was obsessively reading all weekend because I was trying to finish Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.  I participated in a read-a-thon for a book club last week where everyone read classics.  Last week turned out to be busier than I thought it was going to be so I wasn't very far into the book by Saturday.  I didn't actually finish by the end of the weekend but as of now I have less than 20 percent left to read.  I think I'll be done with it tonight.

Brunch: a portobello mushroom and brown rice and tomatoes with two eggs over easy.
I think I read about a third of Pride and Prejudice during this weekend.
Steve took this picture from our walk.  We've walked in this spot before but not since it's all grown in for the summer.  This was the only spot that actually had a view because the rest of the water was totally shielded by trees.  There was also a group of 47 geese that we had to walk through.  It was frightening.
