BlogFire Carnival: My Fave Weekend Activity

Okay, so I missed the deadline...I had it set for the wrong day...but since it was written anyway....
My Fave activities? Not really sure if I have one. My weekends are not much different than my weekdays. The biggest difference is there are more people here (no school for the kids or work for hubby). 
Ideally I would relax, do nothing, maybe go on bike rides. I will relax much as being a full time parent can let you relax. Do, no. Need another 14 years until the youngest is out of the house for that one. Bike rides, sure...but always with a passenger. That activity won't need 14 years until I can do it alone...only about 10 until he can stay home by himself.
In the real world my favorite things to do are hang with my boys and sew. The summertime is almost like one big weekend for the hanging with the boys, so weekends don't feel like weekends just yet. Maybe in another week or two when both boys are in school.
The sewing part, well, that is not much different than the weekdays either I suppose. Maybe even less time spent because everyone is home. There are those times that the boys - I am including hubby in this - take off for somewhere & I get the house to myself for an hour or so. But in those moments - I tend to do nothing...and love every minute of it, usually with a good book.


  1. I like the idea of the summertime being one big weekend! Fun post and I enjoyed reading about your fun times!

  2. Reading used to be my favorite wekend activities, but I've been so busy lately, I haven't been reading as much. Don't have kids... my life would be MUCH different if I did! Good to get out of the house and go for a ride!

  3. Enjoyed your photos. My weekdays and weekends are also pretty much the same except that my husband is off work. He works from home so is around a lot unless he is traveling. My kids are grown up, but I feel I have less time to myself now. That is probably just because of the life circumstances I find myself in right now (caring for others). Yesterday was fun. not spent by myself, but... I rode my bike with a friend to an art show. (I need to get in that one!) And my son made a delicious dinner!
    (a side note: I had to laugh at the title of one of the books--Holidays are Hell!)
