For me, it's always been a toss-up as to which is better: a weekend with nothing to do, or a weekend filled with plans. When I've had a couple of the latter I tend to wish for one of the former.
This weekend was one with no real plans. It was OK but not fabulous. I'm almost through Mists of Avalon, which is good considering I'm also reading a book called Katherine
, and Women in Love
. That's not including the books I only pick up every once and again like my Britain guide books and the Bill Bryson book I picked up at the Strand (you know, the one with the grimy little girl handprint on page 10
Labor Day weekend, though, I will be driving down to North Carolina. I have some good friends who recently moved down there, and I'm really excited to see their new place, and play some Trivial Pursuit. HA!
(inside joke--sorry). But they know and I know the real reason I'm going down is because I miss her:
Tell me that is not a great expression!
Anyway, if you know a fast route to get from PA to NC, lemme know. I love road trips. If you have a great roadtrip mix CD (or a great idea for one) and you'd like to share the playlist in the comments, that would be really great too.
What your favorite way to spend a weekend these days?
