Saturday mornings

If I have a morning off each week, it is Saturday.  Usually I work on Saturday nights but this week I have a whole day off to do absolutely nothing.

I woke up this morning wanting pancakes.  I don't even like pancakes.  But I am willing to bet I venture out to by eggs so I can attempt to make pancakes before my day is over.

I should spend my only morning off catching up on all of the things that I don't get done during the week.  Since I was traveling, the house isn't awful.  But it could use a thorough spring cleaning before the waves of company invade over the next few weeks.  I think I'll just find time to do that next weekend.

Today, I would like to do a whole lot of nothing.  Maybe make the aforementioned pancakes.  Probably bake butter cake with chocolate frosting later.  Eat leftovers for lunch and maybe cook for dinner - I'm kind of wanting salmon as well.  Just watched some tv chef make salmon on Food Network and it looked delicious.

Sounds like my day is going to revolve around food.  Just so long as it doesn't revolve around laundry, I'm ok.

Really, I'll probably lay in bed for a while yet.  I laid on the couch for hours last night and every time the thought went through my brain that I should get up and get something done, the cats took control and settled in for a long snooze.

 (Notice their coordinating collars.  Souvenirs from my work trip.  Too cute.)

And then this morning, I thought about getting up and starting to move and Charlie snuggled in.  I wouldn't want to disturb her.

I am a terrible blogger / reader / movie watcher lately...

I need some culture in my life.  I mean besides laying on the couch, browsing online, watching Say Yes to the Dress, and making my dad's "secret recipe" scalloped potato and ham on a Friday night.  Don't get me wrong.  It has been a very very very (one more for good measure) very long month.  Work, other work, visitors in town, more work, conference travel... that has been my life for the last month.  Looking forward, it's going to be my life for the next couple of months as well.

I don't mean to sound like I'm complaining.  I'm not.  I'm tired, yes, but it's ok.  It's nice to be busy for once.

I haven't been reading any books or watching any movies lately.  I haven't even watched Nip/Tuck in a few weeks.  I just haven't found anything to keep my interest.  I realized tonight I've had the same dvd from Netflix for 6 weeks.  Thank god for no late fees.  But what a waste of money for it just to sit here.  I'm sending it back without watching it.  Clearly I'm not as interested in Book of Eli as I thought I was.

A few weeks ago, some of my best friends Kyle & Heidi were in town with their sons.  Instead of showing them the finer things in Lexington, we ate at Culver's, watched portions of multiple stupid movies, and ate breakfast at Waffle House.  Oh and I got their car towed.  Wonderful to see them but not exactly exciting.  I have become the worst hostess on the planet.

No, that can't be true.  People keep coming to visit so I can't be all that awful!  In the next 6 weeks, I have 3 different weekends with company in town.  I usually cook for my guests and that's something!

Wow, most boring blog post ever.
