first set of weekend plans for 2020
posted by soe 12:14 am

A lack of nearby snow means I suddenly have a weekend to myself. Here’s how I’m hoping to fill some of the time (other than eating the rest of our New Year’s cheesy grits, which were delicious after some time under the broiler and registering for a Sunday afternoon bowling league with a friend):

  • Sleep in. I have an early train to Philadelphia on Monday for a meeting, and working two whole days in a row while still not being fully healthy has been a challenge.
  • Send out my Christmas cards. Because the twelve days end this weekend and I will not have them lingering past that. But, hey, at least folks will be getting real mail in January as well as December, right?
  • Finish my shawl. I’d like to start something new, or at the very least, move on to another project, but I’ve sworn that I won’t knit anything else until I kick those final rows that have been hounding me for months now.
  • Go to the library. I have holds waiting for me.
  • Read. I have four books in progress.
  • Do some laundry.
  • Start some tidying/purging projects.
  • Write a best books of 2019 post. As per usual, I ran out of steam on the monthly book reports, but I’d like to get the year-end wrap up done sooner rather than later.
  • Bake. Earlier today, I saw a Mary Berry 5-ingredient shortbread recipe I might like to try.
  • Phone a friend. She called before the holidays when I was sick and voiceless and I owe her a return call.
  • Watch some more Christmas movies — the ultra sappy ones that Rudi won’t mind missing. Or maybe take myself out to see Little Women. (I’ve promised to go a second time with Rudi if I opt to do so.)
  • Spend some time outside. Because fresh air and activity are good for me.

How about you? What’s on your to-do list this first weekend of the year?

Thank you for the Feb Cornell bird count information! I’ll do it! But who do I tell if I am seeing the same birds over and over in a fifteen minute period?

I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! I had some similar plans, but I haven’t done much with my weekend so far. And that’s OK. It’s too early in the year for stress 🙂
