Everyone who says ‘hi’ on Monday asks that question. I thought about my weekend and at first blush, not so great. No movie, no clubs, no great revelations, Nothing, Nada, Zip.
But as I reviewed the two days that end and begin weeks, I realized I got a lot done. Little things that I had put off and frankly had been bugging me for, in come cases, months.
There was a screw missing in the bracket that holds the sun visor in my car. As long as I don’t move the visor, its fine. But it ticks me off every time I look at it. Its a tiny little screw. On Saturday, I searched the bottom of my tool box, found the screw and all is right with the world. I gave the car a congratulatory wash. Washed the other car too, didn’t want it to be jealous.
The back gate latch has come out of the wood that holds it. 15 minutes and a power drill and we are in business.
I have put off cleaning and covering the BBQ for winter. Its done.
That wonky sprinkler head in the front yard is fixed.
I had to gear up for it, but made a trip to Costco — all alone. Completed the shopping list.
Walked to the hardware store, did 2000 additional steps (I have a fitbit) and brought insecticide for the roses. Maybe next weekend I’ll spray them.
I read two books and two short stories.
Watched four episodes of MASH.
Drank a little adult beverage and slept very well.
Wow — guess I had an active weekend after all.
Re: Fitbit — its a sort of watch you wear and it counts your steps. The goal is 10,000 each day. My regular day would get me about 5000 so I have to come up with places to walk in addition. I do about 8500 to 9000 and on some days, like when I go to Costco, I hit 10K. If you have friends who also have Fitbit you can connect with them on line and then its a challenge to see who does the best each day. I ran into a neighbor who was wearing one and he told me he averages 15,000. He’s a contractor and gets a lot of mileage in on the job. Another friend will walk around the house before bedtime to reach a certain goal. It begins to shame you in to additional exercise.
