Awesome weekend. Absolutely awesome. It was long and busy but soooo productive and I felt like I was getting my groove back. A couple friends and I did a freezer cooking day on Saturday, so I now have 12 meals plus in the freezer! We’ve done this a couple times before and I’m always amazed how having even one meal a week done (at least to the point that I don’t have to think about it too much) is such a huge relief with meal-planning! The last time we only made six or so, so this was even better, and some of the meals are individually portioned so they’ll be great for school lunches or when someone’s home alone and we don’t need a full meal cooked. I’ll share our “process” later this week.
I had the whole day to myself on Sunday, so I got housework done, waxed my desk that I repainted and am getting ready to sell (finally finished!), and worked on a bulletin board for Jazzercise. Groceries were bought at Costco the morning of freezer-cooking, so I didn’t have a need to do that yesterday. (Yahoo!) I even had time to walk the dog, finally, and it was so nice to have some outside time, especially since our temps are turning COLD this week.
Feeling like I accomplished something on the weekend always gets my Monday started off better, but then something else happened today to make it even more fabulous. (A fabulous Monday? WHAT?) This morning on the way home from Jazzercise, I ran through the Scooter’s drive-thru. I was so taken back when the barista told me that the woman in front of me had paid for my coffee! I’ve heard of this being done and intended to do it sometime, but I always forget! I wound up paying for the woman behind me as well. The whole thing just felt awesome and completely made my day. So if you’re looking for a good deed to do with the approaching holidays, maybe consider something as simple as paying for the person behind you in line!
