My Day in a Nutshell

On the very rare occasion I get a weekend off, this was what my day looked like:

8:00 AM - I got to sleep in till 8!! And i rolled out of bed and onto my yoga mat.

9:00 AM - I made myself some coffee while I got started onto some early morning crafting!


11:00AM - I didn't get done until about 2 hours later and then continued with some chores like sweeping and cleaning the bathroom.

12:00PM - We haven't got our washer and dryer yet so we drove to J's parents' to do our laundry!

1:00PM - While a load was in the wash, we trudged outside to do some mushroom foraging.

2:00PM - We trekked over to see the neighbor's (very friendly) cow. Poor sod, she is always so happy to see us, I suspect she is really lonely. She bellows real loud when she sees us coming, and bellows again when we leave.

4:00PM - The laundry didn't get done till now, and then we drove home.

5:00PM - It started to pour, but we were getting ready for our movie night out! J was going to see Underworld with his dad and brother while my friends and I got tickets for Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.

6:00PM - It was growing darker by the minute and still pouring. Even so, Birkdale is a pretty place at night! There were only parallel parking lots available. I aced the parking bit, even though I held up the traffic for a good while.

9:00PM - After we cried buckets, the movie ended. I got home and read a bad review about the movie here. Didn't think it was very fair, but certainly spot on about Hanks and Bullocks' non-contribution, as well as stellar performance by Von Sydow. I still think it's an ok watch, certainly a standard Hollywood tear-jerker.


Hope you had a productive weekend like I did!

  4. Wow what a great day. I want to see that movie too but will probably wait until it is on DVD, as usual.

  5. Yay for fun and productive days!
    That's so inspiring you do yoga in the morning.
    I definitely need to do this.

    1. I can only do yoga in the mornings. I get too distracted later on in the day.

  9. So much to say...first, where's Birkdale? Second, I didn't know you could find edible mushrooms in NC and third, What a sweet cow!! I've been wanting to see that movie. I generally don't read the critics and have my own opinion about movies, just because I rarely agree with them. By the way, I love yoga, but can't imagine rolling out of bed to do it...must have my coffee first!
    Hope you are having a good week:0)

    1. Hi Angela!

      Well Birkdale Village is like a cute little shopping area in the town of Huntersville, where I currently live. You can find edible mushrooms almost everywhere if you know what you find. There's a mushroom man who scours the Biltmore Estates for edible mushrooms to sell to restaurants!

      Have a great weekend!

  10. wait, you neighbours have a cow? That is so much cooler than a cat or a dog! I hadn't heard of this movie before and maybe I'll watch it now! :) x
