Happy Spring! As it turns out, we're expecting another snow storm.
Last night, the Señor and I were lamenting how quickly the weekend passes. His proposed solution?
Go out more often on Friday nights.
This weekend was no different. Friday night was met with warm pajamas, a glass of cabernet, a fierce game of fetch with Gracie, homework, and an early bedtime.
Saturday morning began at a local bakery and farmer's market.
Then, I had class, where we were presented with an interesting question about culture.
We began the session with this time lapse video on borders, which served as a launchpad for a discussion on culture.
Our instructor asked us to identify the four dominant traits of our own culture, including, but not restricted to country of origin, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomics, race, and class.
Then, he asked us which trait of the four was non-negotiable and which trait we would be willing to abandon. It brought up an interesting conversation about privilege and how we identify ourselves.
After class, we went to my Mom and Dad's, where we indulged in my Mom's annual corned beef and cabbage dinner. Dinner was delicious, and our time with my Mom and Dad is always a treat.
On Sunday, the Señor and I celebrated Macaron Day with cafe au laits and macarons at another local bakery. Thanks to The Good Life France for the heads up and history of macarons. It reminded me of my own adventure with macaron making.
The weekend ended with a late matinee to see The Big Short, before coming home to prep for the week ahead and do a little reading.
The weekends do pass too quickly. Perhaps going out more on Friday nights will help. In the meantime, there's a lot of living to do between now and next Friday.
Cheers to the new week, new goals, and new smiles.
