Every weekend is different. Every weekend is special. I always envision my weekends to be different and special. Isn’t it amazing that we all get seven days a week and that most of us have two days (out of the seven) to rest from work and just do the things we love? I know some of you work on Saturday or Sunday (I sometimes do, too), but you get the point.
I mentioned that my Saturday was breezy because it was relaxed and cheery. I woke up late while the hubby went to grad school and came back not until 5:00 p.m. We were still in Manila so I prepared my own breakfast. I also reheated some cooked dishes from the freezer because the hubby always goes home for lunch.
After feeding the hubby, I went out and crossed the street to go to my siblings’ place. Mame told me that my uncle Ludring and cousin Jun2x were there because they were to fly to Cebu the next day and Daddy would accompany them to the airport. So, we had a little chitchat first before I got to chill out with my siblings until it was time for the hubby and I to go home in Bacoor.
Before we drove to Bacoor, we had visited our son’s grave and heard the anticipated mass at St. Michael the Archangel Shrine.
Traffic was light on Roxas Blvd. and before we knew it, we were already entering the gate of our village. I didn’t plan on cooking dinner that night so we just stopped over at Kowloon House on Molino Blvd. and got two jumbo siopaos and a serving of beef and wanton noodle soup for us to share. Solved!
Our Sunday was spent doing household chores. The hubby got his OC mode on as he cleaned the car and tidied up our tiny balcony. I, on the other hand, got busy hand-washing our office clothes (I’ve been doing this since last month in an effort to prolong the life span of our clothes, haha) and preparing our meals for the day. As much as possible, I try to cook healthy meals during weekends to make up for the not-so healthy food we get to eat during weekdays. I also cook two different rice for the two of us each time.
The white rice is for the hubby while the brown rice is for me. He said that despite the health benefits of brown rice, he still cannot give up on his white rice. As a compromise, he now lets me measure his rice intake which I keep at a maximum of two cups per meal. Fair deal, I guess.
While watching TV at our living room, I noticed this 2013 planner tucked under our sofa table along with some random old magazines. I decided to flip the pages and was instantly reminded that this planner has several gourmet recipes inside arranged by month. One day, I’ll make my own tiramisu using the recipe mentioned there!
It must be the cold weather or we’re just getting old, but the hubby and I opted to sleep early that night instead of watching a movie as what we had initially planned. 🙂
How did you weekend go, friends?
May you choose happiness always,
