This was not a big DIYing or blogging weekend. And actually it was pretty nice.
However, because it was a different type of weekend, you get a different type of post today. Get ready for a view into my life outside of renos.
Somehow, Matt and I both arrived home before sunset and at the same time on Friday evening. We headed out with Baxter for a family walk across the fields, which was a lovely way to start the weekend.
Saturday was lots of family time for my nephew’s first birthday, and then a girls’ night at my friend’s new house. I’ve been friends with some of these women since kindergarten. Our unit of six was solidified before we started counting our ages in double digits. While we don’t see each other as often as we’d like anymore, when we do, it’s as though no time has passed. I am very thankful I have such amazing friends.
Sunday, Baxter and I went for a hike with some of his doggie friends. We’re doing the 21-day dog walking challenge from ThatMutt.com (#ActiveMutts). A two-hour off-leash hike is a good way to get some exercise and training practice. My focus with Baxter this month is “come.” There were some great successes and one epic failure. Baxter abandoned our hiking group to join another group with a Great Dane and two Dobermans. He looooves Great Danes.
Since moving to the farm, I’ve become a huge homebody–and there’s obviously no shortage of things to do. Weekends like this that take me away from the farm are not my favourite. However, it ended up being a very nice time and a good reminder to me that it’s important to make the effort to do something different every so often.
How was your weekend? What did you do? How do you like to spend your weekends?
