This weekend I had absolutely no agenda and I wasn’t too concerned about having plans since I knew the next few weekends coming up are going to be super busy.
Friday night I was feeling absolutely exhausted when I got home from work and opted to have a nap. I know, I’m the lamest ever on a Friday night. I made up for it when a friend invited me to go see Savages at the theatre with some other people though. I was in! I thought it was a decent movie, but the guys thought it was going to be way more action. I didn’t go in expecting to get a lot from it which is why I think I enjoyed it more than they did.
Saturday morning was the typical trip to the farmer’s market. I was disappointed that Mini Beans and Peppermint Andy’s weren’t there this week! Afterwards I ran some errands and came home to do a bit of cleaning. After Layne helped me clean out the drain in my dishwasher I decided to run a cycle of vinegar and a cycle of baking soda through it to help clean it out even more. I’m hoping that will help it clean my dishes better even though I know it won’t help the super high pressure that thing puts out, leaving some of my dishes over turned and full of dirty water when I go to empty it. Anyone know if there’s a way to change that?
I had suggested to Cassandra that we take a trip out to Sylvan for the afternoon and do a round of mini golf and get some ice cream. That’s exactly what we did, which meant I got to cross one thing off my Last Summer Bucket List! It was a nice afternoon to go since it wasn’t blazing hot but it was still warm. While I’m typically bad at mini golf, I had a great time and even ended up winning which was shocking! We had a lot of fun.
It was funny when we got there and I noticed that Cassandra’s step daughter was wearing her ‘I’m going to be a big sister’ shirt. Since Cassandra isn’t showing yet, it probably looked like Rebecca belonged to me!
After we finished a fun 18 holes, Rebecca decided she wanted to go to Menchies rather than get ice cream. She hadn’t been to Menchies yet and was excited to try it. I hadn’t been for a long time so it was nice to be reunited with my beloved fro-yo. Seeing that Mucho Burrito had opened up next door made me want to try, especially since I’ve heard good things about it.
Sunday I woke up to a rainy dreary day and had no desire to get out of bed, aside for the fact that my stomach was growling. I got up around 11 for a bowl of cereal before crawling back into my bed with a book. I finally decided to get ready for the day around 1 when I got a call to go for brunch with some friends, and then met up with another friend for coffee afterwards. It was a nice visit, we chatted for nearly 2 hours but could have probably sat there for another 2 more. I always enjoy a good coffee date.
Afterwards I decided I should finally tackle cleaning the condo even though I just wanted to crawl back into bed and read. Don’t judge me, I need to take advantage of lazy days while I still have them, because I won’t have them much longer! I did manage to get cleaning though. The last while I’ve been trying to use up my old chemical cleaning products and replace them with natural stuff. Today I was finally able to clean my shower using baking soda and vinegar. I HATE cleaning my shower. It always seems that no matter how hard I scrub I can never get it clean. It’s especially more difficult maneuvering with a giant belly in the way and it makes me wish I could pay someone JUST to clean my shower. While it still took a lot of scrubbing, I think my shower is actually completely clean after using the baking soda and vinegar! Feels good to know that not only am I cutting out harsh cleaners, it’s cheaper and more effective! Go natural!
I’m now done the cleaner and thinking I might curl up on the couch with a cup of tea and see what’s on Netflix. The week ahead is going to be a fun but busy one with Westerner Days festivities, a blogger meet up, UFC fights in Calgary and the Mud Hero! I can’t wait!
What did you get up to this weekend? Cross anything off your summer bucket list?
What is the one thing in your house you absolutely hate to clean?
