Weekend Recap - Down Time

Well, I just had one of the quietest weekends I can remember. Friday night, I hung out at the Promenade with a friend, just walking around, looking through books at Barnes & Noble, and chatting over coffee. Saturday, I did a little errand for my boss, then swung by the Farmer's Market in Santa Monica, where I chanced upon the most delicious grapes I've ever tasted. They're hidden in the refrigerator where no one but me can find them. If I could password-protect them, I would. Hahaha!

Saturday night, I was finally convinced to go to a volunteer dinner at church, where I spent the first hour smiling emptily at people I barely knew. Fortunately, I was able to sit at a table with one of the funniest group of people I've ever met, and before I knew it, I was actually enjoying myself. I was surprised when everyone started getting up to leave - it was actually that late, and I hadn't noticed it. Anyway, I came out of the dinner with three cute teddy bears that I hoarded after being told that they were going to throw away the unclaimed ones.

Sunday - mass and then work again, and then a quiet night with a book and a magazine. All in all, a relaxing weekend - much needed, considering the days preceding it.

The weather has been pretty dismal though, and according to the forecast, the rain will be here till at least the middle of the week. Normally I love weather like this, because it's so perfect for sitting on a couch under a blanket, for a quick cuddle and a nice mug of hot chocolate. But there's work to be done, no couch time to be had, and I feel robbed. Why does this kind of weather come when I'm not prepared for it?! :P
