After having several weekends in a row with plans and stuff to do, it was nice to have a weekend home with NOTHING on the schedule. Which meant, of course, making big to-do lists (cleaning! filing! working!) but getting none of them done. Which was completely, absolutely fine because what I did get done was probably much more fun. Like doing these 7 things:
7 Ways to Spend a Lazy Weekend
Finished two of the books I was in the middle of! On to Orphan Train next. Any other good summer reads to recommend?
2. Running. a 7.6 miler on Saturday and a 6.6 miler on Sunday. One of these days I’ll get a Garmin so I actually run even numbers.
3. Baking. Once again we had a surplus of blueberries from our CSA, so I whipped up a batch of Blueberry Buttermilk Scones.
4. Pho-ing. Yeah, I know that’s not a word. But Friday night B and I hit up our favorite Pho place for some salads, spring rolls and bun. Sorry, bun not pictured (but enjoyed very much!)
5. Suiteing! Yup, again, stretching it with the word, but B and I enjoyed a fun Indians game on Sunday in after a friend asked us to join him in their company suite.
6. Cooking at home. Which meant pasta from Ohio City Pasta (via Fresh Fork) and Limoncello from Italy!
7. Enjoying new flavors of ice cream. Because what summer weekend would be complete without it? Pictured below (sorry it’s somewhat blurry) is orange ginger from Rothschild Creamery!
Despite not cleaning, or doing the work I wanted to, as you can tell, it was a pretty good weekend after all.
Some questions for you:
- Do you enjoy after dinner drinks like Limoncello? What’s your favorite?
- Any fun flavors of ice cream you’ve tried lately?
- What’s a new book I should add to my list?

I love this post idea! I always look forward to the weekends where I have absolutely NOTHING planned, because I just want to relax. But then I get bored by late Saturday morning, and I’m looking for something to do 😉
I am the same way! Weekends with nothing planned always end up sounding better than they are … I somehow end up finding a way to fill them with something!
