Easing In

Well, it’s the first official day back from Spring Break and, boy, is this week looking crazy! A deadline today, a photo shoot on campus tomorrow and Wednesday, an alumni event Wednesday and Thursday, and my half marathon on Sunday. Good thing I took next Monday off to relax!

As the JA and I eased our way back into ‘work mode’ we also enjoyed ourselves this weekend. Here’s what we accomplished:

– Spruce up the house. In light of our tree root incident from earlier this year, our landscaping left a lot to be desired. We took a trip to Lowe’s this weekend and attacked the front yard and flower boxes. We also planted herbs and veggies in the backyard. Now only if the grass patches would grow a bit faster, we’d be good to go!

 

– Hang out with friends and family. Nettifred came into town on Friday and that can’t happen without some bonding time – especially when she brings her new dog with her. I use the term dog loosely here, as Winnie weighs about 8 lbs. total and stands only a few inches tall, but she’s so cute. A trip home also means that we do things specific to MD, like grabbing frozen custard at our favorite local ice cream stand. Delicious!

– Let loose and have fun. Friday night we indulged a bit and made an old-school staple for dinner: pizza bagels. While I know these are not the healthiest options, I’m all about balance and these guys totally hit the spot. The JA commented that they were, “totally picture worthy,” and I happily snapped and posted the pic to Instagram. Additionally, we couldn’t ignore our own pup! Watson had plenty of time being pet and pampered, but we also got a bit goofy with him. I think he looks pretty distinguished, don’t you?
