Weekend Wrap-Up

Ah, man. Monday, already? This weekend went far too fast! 

Yesterday morning, I curled up on the couch with a bowl of scrambled eggs mixed with bacon, scallions, and low-fat sour cream. Um, it's sort of delicious! And not very good for me! But calories don't count on Sundays, right? 


Anyway, on Saturday afternoon, the weather peaked in the mid-60s so I headed over to a local garden to snap some pictures with my new camera. *Hugs camera* I was pleasantly surprised to find a few of the cherry blossom trees in bloom! This means spring is almost here. Hopefully.

{Cherry blossoms in bloom!}
{Spring must be around the corner.}

Suffice to say, I'm super ready for winter to retreat back into its cave! I want to wear skirts and shorts and flowy dresses. I suppose I shall pray to the Weather Gods.

The rest of the weekend was spent revising and reading, namely whittling down my library pile. See, I'm trying to cut back on my book spending, mostly because I could spend $100 a day on books if I let myself. Also, I've bought some lemons in the past and that makes my brows furrow like this...  >: (

It's no fun getting all excited about a book and buying it and then...that awful disappointment. And hey, books ain't cheap! 

{The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight} 
{The Hunger Games}

I've been re-reading The Hunger Games (yet again) as inspiration for my WIP and because the movie is almost upon us! My excitement cannot be expressed in words! Eeep! 

So how was your weekend?


  1. Random coincidence: we stayed at a friend's house this weekend, and she made us sausage gravy for breakfast on Sunday morning. As she was cooking, she looked at the nutritional info for the biscuits, and I told her to look away because, and I quote, "calories don't count on Sundays!"

    If we both believe it, then it must be true!!

  2. We're so on the same wavelength! I totally had a hunch that calories don't count on Sundays. :)

    You know what this means, right? Lavender Moon all day on Sundays!

  3. I'll trade weekends with you!! Henry has a cold and an ear infection. He also exploded in most of his outfits and therefore left me with a mountain of laundry. THEN Sam caught his cold and is now a sniffling mess who can't go to school (the quietest 3 hours of my day). I've re-instituted nap time.

    1. Aww, I'm so sorry that Henry and Sam are sick! That is no fun at all! At least they're so darn cute, right? *Hugs*

  4. Okay, I love that you are kissing THE HUNGER GAMES. A true fangirl. :) And your pictures turned out beautifully. Share more when you have time!

    1. Aw, thanks, Katy! And I am SO excited for The Hunger Games movie--if only I could watch it with you and Erin!

  5. My weekend was pretty chill and I saw Monty Python's Spamalot, which was really funny. Did you take those pictures with your new camera? The flowers are lovely!

    1. Oh, Spamalot! I hear that is so funny. Lucky girl!

      Yes, I took those pics with my new camera! I really love it, although I have to admit that I use Picasa to make the pictures prettier!
