3 Good Things

I always look forward to the weekends, and before I know it, the week has begun again. I'm really feeling the beginning-of-the-week blues this week for some reason. Maybe it's because this morning it's rainy and cloudy, and my huge homework/project/household to-do list is staring me in the face. Either way, I thought that in an attempt to snap out of the Monday/Tuesday blues, I'd share with you 3 wonderful things from this weekend.
1. My garden is growing so much! It probably means nothing to you, unless you garden... but seeing those little seeds sprout up in the sunshine and start budding is so awesome. I can't wait to be able to pick off the strawberries and eat them this summer. I never thought that having a little garden would be fun, but it absolutely is. Every day, Madi and I go out and water it, and she helps me pick off the dead leaves and clear any tree leaves that have made their way into the garden bed. She adjusts the little stone turtle that I have in there to make sure he's "comfy." I seriously love it. And I'm planning on expanding it soon :)
2. We spent the majority of our time this weekend outside with family. The sun was shining bright all weekend and we totally took advantage. Saturday, we stayed home and hung out outside with my parents, and my neice came over. Madi absolutely adores Kylie and it's so cute to watch them play and interact. They threw rocks in the water, rode bikes, played on the swingset, and "helped" Pawpaw with his yard work. Then on Sunday, we spent the day with Mimi and Pawpaw. We just hung around the house there. We grilled some good food, had some good conversation, and played a lot in Madi's playroom.
3. I've been going to the gym 3 days a week for about an hour each time. Usually 1 1/2 hours on Saturday mornings. I get there at 8 when they open and it's always empty. There may be a few older people there, but other than that, I have it all to myself. I look forward to going all week. Those days are when I work out my entire body, so I spend a lot of time there and it's so nice to be able to have free range over all of the machines. I also do ab work on the days I don't go to the gym. I have a love/hate relationship with those though. ;) I seriously love the days I get to go to the gym. I got out of running for a few months and I've never felt so unfit in my life. After running consecutively for about a year, I could feel that my body was changing for the worse. I can confidently say that I won't ever let that happen again. Running and working out feels far too good to let it go again.
Those are my "3 Good Things" from my weekend. Here's to a productive week and a relaxing weekend up ahead. What are some of your highlights from the weekend?
