My weekend

Jeremy and I were supposed to be out of town this weekend, but after careful consideration of the past month and of the coming few weeks, we realized that more than anything we needed a weekend at home together doing nothing. And you know what? It was wonderful!
Saturday morning we went to the local Farmer's Market and had breakfast and walked around. Bought a few veggies, honey, and coffee. We followed that up with some tennis. Um, well, we served the ball to each other, but the making it back across the net didn't exactly happen much. :) However, it was fun and something different and free for us to do together. A heavy rain shower sent us packing early, so we went to the gym to finish getting our exercise. After a snacky lunch at home we went to Barnes and Noble and sat and read for an hour or so. I made a veggie packed stir-fry for dinner which we ate while watching "Reign of Fire." Sunday morning we had church, but the rest of the day was together, very relaxed, and involved lots of reading.
We both felt refreshed and think the time helped us prepare for a few more busy weeks.
I love my husband and love spending time with him, even if it's just sitting next to him sipping coffee and reading a book (thankfully he loves to read as much as I do, so this scenario--while not done all the time--is mutually enjoyable).
Hope you all had relaxing weekends as well!

Dave and I like to sit and read together, too. There's intimacy in it, even without conversation. :)

We missed you but I'm glad you had the time you needed!

I'm slightly jealous that your husband likes to read. I always dreamed about a life like that--but alas. I married a very active man. We do play tennis together, which is quite fun. But it's so different from what I imagined!
