extra hour weekend planning
posted by soe 2:44 am

Both things I had on my calendar for this weekend have been postponed, which means I now have to think about doing other things with my days. Plus, there’s that extra “Fall Back” hour to fill. Here’s how I’m thinking I might use the time:

  • Watch the Nationals World Series parade. I’m iffy about the crowds, but someone Rudi knows suggested the last massive sports parade he attended was manageable near the route start, so I may give that a shot. But if it’s too overwhelming, it’s not like they need me there to have the parade.
  • Go to the library in Virginia where the book my new book club is reading is on hold for me.
  • Do laundry.
  • Ride a bike to a hot drink for a coffeeneuring stop.
  • Start cleaning my apartment. My holiday party is in a month, and my apartment is more messy than ever.
  • Bake something seasonal, possibly using quince.
  • Eat pizza.
  • Book a rental car for Thanksgiving.
  • Finish my shawl. Then I could block it, because although it will be cool, it will also be sunny and dry.
  • Visit the garden to pick the last of the tomatoes and basil and pull out dead plants.
  • Read Rainbow Rowell’s Pumpkinheads, which takes place on Halloween.
  • Spend as much time outside during daylight as possible, since weekends will be the last I see of daylight for the next several months.

How about you? What will you do with your extra-long 2-day weekend?
