Birthday weekend

I had a very nice, quiet four day birthday weekend. Bob went away for the weekend on a fishing trip, he left Thurday after Thanksgiving dinner at my parents' (which was very nice, too).

So I slept late each morning, went out to eat a few times, watched a few movies, read some books . . . it was nice.

I took myself out to breakfast on Friday for my birthday. I went to LePeep, and when I got there, they said there would be a 20 minute wait for a table. My first inclination was to leave, but then I remembered that I had a book and my journal with me, and it was a nice day, so I sat outside at a patio table and wrote, and the time passed quickly. I read while I ate, and took my time, and it was just really nice.

I did a little bit of shopping that afternoon, although nothing major. I went to Borders and spent my holiday savings reward (on myself!), then went to Bath & Body Works and bought a few things for Christmas gifts, plus another bottle of Hot Chocolate bubble bath (love that stuff).

I went to Jason's Deli for the salad bar on both Saturday and Sunday, cooked fish sticks and potato pancakes for dinner a couple of times, and ate leftover turkey sandwiches one night.

I watched both Ghostbusters movies, read one of the books I bought on Friday (A Girl's Guide to Witchcraft, which was a lot of fun, sort of chick lit with a magical theme), read a couple of other books from my to-be-read pile (see the book list, and just generally had a nice, relaxing weekend just for myself. I did do a bit of freelance web stuff, cleaned the bathroom, dusted, did laundry, that kind of stuff, but I mostly just relaxed. I think I needed that.

I've gotten back into studying the tarot, and Liora (I think it was) left a comment on an entry that she liked it when I was talking about different decks and cards. The first time that I did that, I got several negative comments, and while I don't let readers dictate what I write about, I guess it made me feel kind of weird about it. So I'm going to do it again, but I'm going to do it at Rarepeace, my tarot journal. A better place for it, anyway.
