Low Key Weekend

July 12th, 2015 at 02:07 am

Today was pretty low-key. I wanted to go to the pool, but F said she'd rather go tomorrow when her friend is over.

So... I vacuumed and cleaned out the litterbox, washed the picnic blanket, dusted, got the fur off the pet covers that I keep on the sofa, cleaned all of the kitchen appliances (including toaster crumbs and the inside of the microwave).

We had a nice lunch on our patio (finally it's warm enough after weeks of rain every day!). Quesadillas and watermelon and leftover roast courgettes and red pepper.

Then I worked on the General Store dollhouse I made for F. It's almost done! I think we'll be able to decorate it tomorrow! I will definitely post some photos.

We played tennis at the park (and unfortunately lost a ball; ah well).

Then we went to the store to get strawberries and whipping cream. I made mini pavlovas for dessert tonight. That might be my favorite dessert ever. I had two egg whites I'd saved from a recipe that used just yolks, so I wanted to use them up, and meringues are perfect.

Tonight we're going to watch Married at First Sight which is sure to be completely stupid, but we all need to relax. Last week was stressful (work) and rainy (a day of crazy hail which made the upper patio fill with dirt which we had to dig out) and emotional (F had some anxiety due to the thunder associated with the rain). I am looking forward to sitting at the pool tomorrow and reading the book on my phone!

Sometimes I feel like our weekends are dull compared to other people (I'm on Facebook too much obviously), but I think I like them that way. Are you a high intensity weekend person or a low-key weekend person? I think they can both be frugal...

    I like low-key weekends, although I work every Saturday so there's not much we can do then. That reminds me, I need to find time to clean the microwave.

    Definitely a low-key weekend person. (Especially being a married mature age student who also works full time - I don't have the energy to have a full on lifestyle! Something will definitely fall out of order then). But at this point in time it doesn't bother me at all, I like having my life in order.

    SG I made something this morning that exploded in the microwave! Let's just say it's now sparkling Smile

    Most of our weekends are low key. We made a point yesterday to get out and do a couple fun (free) things, trail walking and visiting a museum. A couple of us may go see the Minion movie. Trying to enjoy the weekend before our movers arrive with our stuff tomorrow. Getting organized will keep me busy for awhile.

    Low-key is me! I'm enjoying low-key weekdays now, too!

    I need something going on the weekend, even if it's small. DH and I went to our local Bastille Day celebration--fun and free, but I did buy a gift.

    A fairly low spend weekend since we are getting ready to leave for vacation on Thursday....we will be in Santa Fe on Friday! Smile

    sounds like a really nice weekend. I like mindless tv too Smile haven't watched that one, but I see the appeal

    Always a mixture - my hubby works Sundays so I potter around then but Sat he always wants to go out during the day (when I'm exhausted by work!) Our version of MAFS is over - I didn't watch but understand it was a little underwhelming as they weren't actually allowed to get married. And how to start a fight between aussies and kiwis - tell one the other invented pavlova Big Grin

    Have only watched the first episode! But I think they actually do get married... We'll see. There were three couples and one already decided not to meet. Your comment about pavlova is funny! I actually have a really close friend from New Zealand - she and my husband (British) gang up on me because my American way is ALWAYS wrong! But that was a yummy pavlova! (My New Zealand friend would say that it couldn't possibly be a pavlova because it wasn't one big meringue but individual ones... oh well!).

    I feel you - my husband's british and i just can't hear enough how much we get chips wrong :/ But, I'm going to have to go with your kiwi mate - small/individuals are meringues Big Grin Enjoy your show!

    I'm pretty much a low-key all the time person ... not just the weekends. Smile
