Oh Weekend Where Did You GO??

I'm in the midst of a non-stop few weeks of working every single day (and I don't even do taxes!), and I'd fully planned to do this tonight:

Finish up a few more Sundry Baglets for the show next weekend, listen to more of the book, and knit a dishcloth for the office kitchen, while sipping my gin and diet tonic.

That was my plan. I got sidetracked, however. Yesterday was sewing for the show and working on the vet's books, today was finishing those books, and getting to the Greenway to walk my 30 minutes (!), then running to the grocery, and coming home to cook my Meatless Monday dinner and whip up a meatless salad for tomorrow's lunch. By the time I did that, (I managed to get the gin and tonic made while cooking and sipped on it during all that) suddenly it was almost 10 p.m. and I needed to get ready for bed.

So. I at least got my gin and tonic. (The important stuff, right?)
(I drink so often - I had the gin up in a cabinet, a pint from probably 5 years ago with about 2 inches in the bottom of it. I bought the lime for the salad and suddenly thought, "hmm...tonic? I could make a drink!" It was a good treat. I wonder what I'll do with the rest of the tonic, because it'll be flat before I get around to another maybe another 5 years...)

Also mourning the weekend here in MN, though I wasn't as productive as you were with yours!

Tonic water is good for loosening rusty nuts and taking out stains. I'm glad you had an enjoyable drink...the little things make all the difference. *hugs* :)

Heehee :) A gin and tonic sounds like a just reward after that weekend! I'm impressed with everything you got done (and I love the colors in that dishcloth yarn). :)

I can't believe how quickly the weekend flew by. I stuck with wine this weekend, but you've made me think about a mixed drink. What shall I have? hmmm

Weekends are too short! I had to work at lab part of the morning both Saturday and Sunday, and it just threw everything off. Glad you got the gin and tonic in!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
