My weekend spent in The Middle of Nowhere, Pennsylvania was exactly what I needed.
✾ All-we-could-eat breakfast buffets at The Barn
I had french toast sticks for the first time in years
✾ Wine-fueled charades around the campfire
Some people are really just too good at that game
✾ Grill roasted red peppers for dinner
A little extra char makes them taste a million times better
✾ Nature walks with no end destination
We saw several outhouses - I'm glad I don't live there
✾ Chess and pool tournaments
The boys kind of dominated these, but we were happy to watch
✾ Pit-stops at Sheetz
Those touch screens are ridiculous
✾ Finding tiny animals and bugs to make friends with
It was way too cold for mosquitos, thank God
I'm still in a bit of a daze now that school is over. Work hasn't really picked up yet, but neither has the weather. I'm relishing this cold and rain to fulfill my reality TV addiction and I hope to crack open a book in the near future.
I had thought I had work today, but it turns out I wrote my schedule down wrong in my Moleskine. You can just imagine how upset I was when I thought I had overslept, inhaled breakfast, and ran down to the Museum. Once I realized I wasn't supposed to be there, I decided to spend some time wandering around a new art exhibit, treated myself to a vanilla latte, and picked up a few movies at the Carnegie library. It wasn't exactly what I planned to do with my day, but I'll take it!
Tonight I think I'm going to make my way to the gym for the first time in at least a week and then go out to some bars in Shadyside to spend time with graduating seniors. There's also a Pens game today, so depending on the outcome of that, the night could get pretty crazy.
What would you do with a surprise day off?
