I love weekends. No, I really love weekends. It’s not that I don’t like my job (I do, and frankly I can’t imagine doing anything else for 35-40 hours a week in exchange for a paycheck). I just really like my hobbies too.
As one friend has recently pointed out: every time I talk to her I have a new hobby. In my defense, I’m not quite that fickle in my interests. I just only have so much time when we hang out to discuss my hobbies so that I really only get through one a sitting. (Apparently I can talk at length about some of them)
So while my friend may be astonished to hear that I actually do a lot of these things on a regular basis, my weekend thus far has been most satisfactory to me in that i have been able to take part in many of my favorite activities. The list goes as follows:
- I crocheted a pair of baby booties and a matching hat, along with doing some good work on my on going blanket project.
- I had an amazing hot yoga practice yesterday morning that made my entire day feel great.
- I listened to a bunch of podcasts that I had in my queue. These covered diverse topics such as: Roman history, British history, knitting, ancient Greek muses, improv comedy and replacing a rotted mudsill. 🙂
- I read a chapter in a book I have been saving for years on Canadian Architecture
- I started planning out what renovations I want to make to our condo in the next year. I also started looking at the possibility of moving within the next year and a half…
- I blogged. No not here, until now at least. I started a new daily blog. Halifax Mornings You might be thinking: “A second blog, Really? Is that necessary?”. Well I think so. Every morning I think to myself that I have the best commute in the world. It is one block in length, directly along the Halifax harbour. So every morning I am struck by the beauty of the sky and water as it changes minute by minute. I have been taking pictures of these different conditions for a while and I think I need an appropriate, dedicated place to display them for those who are not as lucky as I to get to experience it first hand. Finding Misha just wasn’t the right place for them, although I may post one from time to time here as well, so Halifax Mornings was born.
So that there is a run down of my weekend, and the hobbies I have had a chance to enjoy around the cleaning and errands that are necessary. Frankly I just love “free-time”, after all doing whatever you want is a guaranteed path to finding joy that day, and isn’t that what this is all about?
