Friday Potpourri

Well it's Friday
and my vacation is drawing to an end

I am feeling a little angry with myself


I did not get even half of what I wanted to do ~ done

why do I do this to myself?
do I give myself unattainable goals

I think I was in vacation mode
relaxation mode
too cold to do anything mode!

oh well ~ everything will get done eventually ~ right?


we had date night on Monday when we went to see
Blue Rodeo

they are one of my very favourite bands
so Trev got me tickets for Christmas

I was a happy girl ~ lots of smiling and singing happening

I have also been pre-planning
making lots of lists
in preparation for my recipe challenge for Feb

if you would like to join in
check it out here

if you do not feel you can do the entire month
why not plan one new recipe a week


the first day I actually ventured outside was yesterday
I took Mom to lunch and we ran some errands
it was so so cold though
it did not take us long to get what we needed done
so we could get home again!


today will be low key
maybe a couple of movies
and puttering around the house
doing little things that I did not get done this week...



I have posted this before
and needed a little reminder this week
that taking time for me is ok.

Hope you had a great week
and that your weekend is full of sunshine and smiles.

Just remember there's always going to be things on your list that needs to be done, but being kind to yourself is at the top of that list! Sounds like you had a nice relaxing week which is probably what you needed at this time. Glad you had fun at your concert! Enjoy your weekend, sweet friend! xxoo

As long as you relaxed and enjoyed yourself during your time off, that's all that matters. Don't beat yourself up. You probably gave your mind and body what it needed!

Have a great weekend! :)

I do the same thing when it's grey and cold here. It's so not motivating! At least you got some rest! That's important too. have a great weekend!

Oh girl, that's a woman's story! We make those sabotaging lists that we can't complete and then beat ourselves up! Why is that???
If we don't make ourself a priority, no one else will - so do NOT feel bad at all. You did what your soul needed, and that's what is most important!

I'm going to work on my list for February today. I'm so excited!

Stay cozy this weekend!!

I am glad to read that you didn't do anything for the week and that you were stuck in vacation/relaxation mode. Everyone needs that once in a while. You deserve it! Happy you enjoyed your week and looking forward to seeing you in a couple of months!

It sounds like you really listened to your deeper voice. Sometimes I struggle giving myself permission to do nothing. Which is really important to our peace of mind. And it sounds like you had such fun at the concert, i'm so glad for you!
