Life lately :: Weekend update edition.

Even with D being out of town again this weekend, I vowed not to sit at home again.  I wanted to make the most of my alone time but be productive as well.

I enjoyed a nice beer while waiting on a friend to head out for some mexican food and margaritas, the best way to start off the weekend.

After a delicious brunch with another friend, I headed out to pick up some more food for my chicks and then to Logan Trading Company.  We're not doing a big garden this year but had some pots with dead herbs waiting for some plants.  I picked up some "patio" tomatoes, cilantro, and a geranium for planting.

I spent the remainder of my Saturday doing reading and only a little TV watching.

I'm really in love with this book so far.  I was able to make a huge dent in it, which was my goal since work has caught up with my and I can't stay up late at night reading anymore.  So far, I think the book is beautifully written, touching, and even has a little bit of humor sprinkled throughout.  It was the best feeling to just curl up and get deep into a book again.

Weekends really are the best.

Linking up with Hayley today!     Photobucket
