Happy Monday Ya’ll!
Hope you all had a fantastic weekend, but now it’s back to reality…
I was lucky enough to spend this past weekend at the cottage, this summer I have been trying to get to the cottage more often & I have already been up there more than I have in previous years. I have been noticing just how much I need weekends like this!
So this weekend was weird weather wise, Saturday was one of those chilly summer Saturdays where you cuddle up with a good book & some tea all day! However with all the reading I got in, it was very clear that I have been needing a relaxing weekend where I honestly ignore my phone, the TV, etc. I can not lie I did end up listening to the local Classic Rock Station all day with my mom & we had some impromptu dancing & singing moments. Before you say anything, I am a slight Classic Rock junkie, I grew up on the classics & find the songs so captivating in the way the artists/bands played the instruments or sang.
After falling asleep relatively early on Friday night, I woke up more refreshed than I have in a while on Saturday & I actually slept the whole night! Who would have thought the country air had this sort of impact on you. So after feeling all refreshed, I decided to go for a run while everyone was sleeping. I ended up loosing track of time & distance & running 10km (I did walk a little, I’m not that crazy), & I couldn’t be more excited. This was the first time I have ever ran over 7kms just cause. The three other times I have ran over 10kms was literally for a 10km race I was participating in, I never even do that during training. But my body is now feeling it!
This past weekend I also started reading a new book, & I was on cloud nine. I started reading the Slash book written by Slash & Anthony Bozza. Can I just start by saying: Oh My Lord. I have yet to be so captivated by a book since I read Rocks by Joe Perry about a year ago. You can bet your bottom dollar I read like a mad woman this past weekend, I could not for the life of me put this book down.
Clearly I stayed up late Saturday Night curled up with Slash (kidding, just the book version..). I woke up Sunday ready for another relaxing day. I would go into more detail but I am pretty sure Sunday played out like any other Sunday does in my life. I did however skip my usual Sunday Morning run, but I went Saturday so that’s okay with me! I watched the F1 race with my family in the morning (my parents love it), had some bacon & eggs for breakfast, read my book, went on the boat (yay, the weather cooperated) & then read some more before heading back to the city. It was a very much needed relaxing weekend that my mind & body clearly needed.
Also, it might be Monday but guess who doesn’t have the Monday Blue today? You guessed it, me! I am already counting down till the Bacheloretttes Men Tell All tonight, oh & this is a pretty exciting, event filled week, meaning the weekend will be here in no time!
Can you believe that August is literally right around the corner?
Hope you all have a very productive & lovely week!
