over the weekend i finally experienced my first day off in months. i had a full sunday (minus 2 hours of work!) to clean the house, stock it full of groceries, rearrange some furniture which felt so refreshing, set up the new living room furniture, and cook.
we lounged around in the morning, eating bacon and eggs and espresso in bed while reading. then read some more on the couch, planned our weekly menu and headed to town.
we tidied up the yard a bit more for winter and i started cooking. we were happy to welcome a dinner guest, so i made chicken with a caper, olive, tomato, and basil salsa along with delicata squash baked with a balsamic reduction. dessert was an apple cake topped with french vanilla ice cream and drizzled with maple syrup.
the evening ended around the new stove where we all got cozy and warm before heading to bed.
it was just enough to re-energize me for a full work week ahead.
what did you do this weekend?
