The Week Between

Have you entered my Peanut Butter & Co. giveaway yet?

Gooooood morning and happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a great weekend. I’m loving this Monday because it’s really like my weekend. I had some clients and hours over the weekend and today is my first day 100% off in a while. Even though I had a few days off of work with my parents here, it was still a lot of exhausting running around so I’m just relishing every minute of this slow day.

Wednesday, Nathan’s mom gets into town and she’ll be staying with us through Sunday which gives us exactly 1 week to recover from my parents! We’ve been enjoying the easy meals at home, taking a break from the drinks, and trying to get back to normal before we start all over again.

Despite my work schedule, we still had some relaxing fun over the weekend. Saturday when I was finished training, we went over to the farmers’ market to load up on some fresh produce. We threw together lunch when we got home, including a delicious apple-fennel salad that I can’t wait to make again! I’ll definitely have to share the recipe soon. The dressing tasted like a sweet vidalia onion dressing. So good!

I digress. We packed up our lunches and made our way back to Mountain View Cemetary where we took a walk with my parents on Tuesday. This time, however, we hiked all the way to the top and the views were stunning. Lunch in the 70° sunshine with these views was the perfect way to spend the afternoon.

Sunday was another slow day. After work, we took a trip to Trader Joe’s to stock up on the food we needed to make it through the next few days and had a nice walk around the area. Like I said, a nice, quiet and relaxing weekend. Just what we needed to refresh ourselves. And now to prepare for more craziness!

Do you usually need recovery time after guests?
