Easter Sunday and Reclaiming the Routine....
Sunday, April 08, 2012
So today is Sunday....Easter Sunday to be precise. Easter's never been a big holiday in my family. We were not brought up especially religious so the whole church thing was never really in play. Easter as a kid was about painted eggs and choclate bunnies whose ears got eaten off quick as lightning and big meals at grandma's house. Since she's passed these 30 odd years ago, Easter now is just another Sunday, but one where otherwise normal people don strange hats and go prancing around 5th Avenue.
So this Easter, I decided that I would start off with a bike ride at the gym! Might as well start the week off right!! So off I went at 7:30 for a quick hour on the bike. Turned a nice time but found that the last 10 mins or so before the end of the time I started to lag a bit. Not sure why that is. Will have to keep an eye on that over the next week. Then it was home to do some chores. Well that was the plan but then I got side tracked with a friend overseas who apprently never knew that you're supposed to eat chocolate easter bunnies ears first. This was quite a long discussion! Quick shower and it was off to brunch with mom. After the slowness of the restaurant service in Paris it seemed as though brunch was over 10 mins after we were seated. I understand restaurants wanting to turn tables....but why rush people when the place is near empty???
After brunch it was nap time! Ahhhh I DO love my nap time! I start off reading then slip into a pleasant doze for a bit. How lovely! Now it's back to completing my regular Sunday routine....cooking for the week -- chicken, rice and salmon cakes should give me a good foundation for meals for the week. Then it's laundry time and some ST before finally finishing my taxes! I wonder what I'll do with me refund? Put it toward a spin bike for the apartment? Gotta admit I have been thinking about it!!
So that's it for me. Back to the office for real tomorrow. My lovely colleagues have already ensured that I won't be bored my first day back. Can't wait!
