A Productive Weekend

We had a seriously productive weekend. So productive, in fact, that I only managed to snap three photos, despite my goal of Taking More Photos. Oh, well. Productivity is worth the sacrifice. 

Ready to kayak.

Things we accomplished, in no particular order: one kettlebell class on Saturday morning, and a four mile run on Sunday; cleaning the chicken coop and treating it for roaches (blargh); mowing the front yard; figuring out dude attire for the wedding; talking to my mom on the telephone; taking the dogs to the park; hosting a little game night (Blokus!); kayaking on the Intercoastal Waterway; keeping up with the dishes; stuffing our faces with vegan blueberry pancakes; working at the wine store; making more progress on the wedding (finalizing the rehearsal dinner, sending thoughts on marriage to the officiant, setting up a Skype date with our DJ's); and finally, watching an episode of Buffy and Vampire Slayer while dining on homemade vegan pizza and sipping on a glass of wine.

Swiss chard from the garden.


As usual, a pretty great weekend, and now I feel primed to take on the week. I'm going to start with Monday, naturally, which features a pretty full to-do list, despite all I accomplished over the weekend. So far this morning, I've already set up a payment plan for my Fall 2012 tuition, posted Lou the Roo on Craigslist (sniff...), emailed our wedding caterer, and written a blog post. Pretty good for 8:00AM, but there's still a long way to go. I don't mind - I'm one of those people who actually loves Mondays, because they hold so much promise and possibility for the week ahead. And now, I'm off to make that promise a reality. Wish me luck!
