A Weekend in the Life #AMonthofFaves

For the month of December, I am joining Girlxoxo and Traveling with T for their #AMonthofFaves blog event. To learn more and to see the list of topics, read their announcement post–#AMonthofFaves 2019 [Blog Event] Announcement.

Today’s prompt is “A Day (or Weekend) in the Life,” and while my weekend life isn’t very exciting (which is just the way I like it), I’m going to write about it anyway.

Weekends for me are Lazy Time. I work Monday through Friday, get out of work at 5pm, then go home and do school work most nights. I watch TV with my husband from 7-9pm, then go to bed. So on the weekends, I don’t want to do a damned thing aside from read for pleasure, take naps, and be lazy.

This weekend was a little different because I had some chores to do, but all-in-all, it was still a lazy weekend.

My husband had the flu for the entirety of Thanksgiving week, so I’ve been sleeping in the guest room. He was still coughing a little last week, and I didn’t want to move back into our bed for fear he would cough in my face while we were sleeping and I wouldn’t even know it. Ew. So this weekend I had to wash the sheets on our bed so I could start sleeping in it again. This is a major operation because we sleep in a waterbed, and we have so many blankets and sheets on it. It takes me most of one day to wash everything that goes on the bed and then get help putting it all back on. I did that on Saturday.

I also watered the plants on Saturday. Most of them are succulents that only need to be watered about once a month, and I typically forget to water the other ones more often. I usually end up watering them all on the same day, or individually when they start to look like they need water. The aloe plant and the large plant in the bottom-right corner are out of control. I don’t even know what to do with them. The one in the bottom-right of the images needs to be trimmed again (we’ve already cut it down once).

I did get some pleasure reading done on Saturday–I read 143 pages of Duma Key. I was hoping to finish it this weekend, but with the other things I had to do, I’m not sure that’s going to happen. I had the last of my school work for this quarter to turn in this weekend, but…


I can pleasure read in my free time for the next 28 days! I’m so excited about this.

Sunday was a truly lazy day. My husband and I went to the family-owned restaurant around the corner for breakfast like we do every Sunday (their breakfast is so good), and then he had to work at our local library from 1-5pm. He has a Monday-Friday job, but works that the library a couple days a month for play money.

As soon as we came home from breakfast, I put pajamas on, folded a load of laundry that was in the dryer, then got on the couch with Rascal. I read more of Duma Key until I felt tired, took a nap, then got up and wrote my last mini paper for school for this quarter. Now I’m writing this post, I’ll have dinner when I’m done, then I’ll read more of Duma Key (and maybe finish it?) before it’s time to go downstairs to watch TV.

I also watched more Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Friday and Saturday nights with a friend who lives in a different state (we do this every Friday and Saturday from 9-10:30pm and chat on Hangouts while we watch).

This is how my weekends typically go. If I had to write for this prompt next weekend, I would have been able to tell you all about the Hogwarts Escape Room my husband and I are doing next Saturday, but alas…

How was your weekend? Did you do anything exciting, or do you like your weekends to be lazy like I do? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I try to alternate lazy weekends and weekends filled with stuff. This weekend was fairly lazy (I stayed at home in yoga pants and messy hair, don’t care and glasses.) But I’ll be making 2 trips to see my nieces this upcoming weekend.

    Is that a Christmas cactus in one of your photos?

    1. Yes, it’s a Christmas cactus. It was given to me as a gift maybe three years ago and it is thriving. I’ve repotted it once already. I wish I had thought to take a picture of it a week ago—it had a ton of blossoms on it!


  2. Enjoy all your free reading time!!!

    Unfortunately this weekend was too busy and I am desperately in need of a lazy weekend. I’m hoping we’ll have some more free spaces this coming weekend.

  3. The first time I read your post I completely missed the part about going out for breakfast and then coming home and putting on jammies! Ok THAT is the best. Breakfast out and then home to JAMMIES, a cat and a book.

    1. My husband owned the waterbed before we got married. I’ll bet it’s from the 80s. Hahaha! But yes, they do still make waterbeds! Someone told me the other day that they’re coming back around? I love it because I have no pressure points when I sleep in it…and it’s HEATED, of course. So it’s nice and toasty in the winter.


  4. I couldn’t find your e-mail…but thought I’d let you know I went to comment on your latest blog post, but couldn’t. No comment form there. I’ve recently had that happen to me several times. I just had to click on “allow comments”.
