oh, hello you beautiful weekend you.
i had a long day yesterday (after a rather long week) and slept in pretty late (close to noon) today before finally pulling myself out of bed and making my way to the kitchen. i've been really digging making myself "restaurant/diner-style" brunches at home lately. it's awesome because i'm usually so rushed during the weekday mornings and always either make myself a smoothie or breakfast sandwich for breakfast, so it's nice to treat myself on the weekends. plus, i'm saving money by not going out for breakfast and can make healthier versions of my restaurant favorites for myself!
today's plate = 2 scrambled eggs with goat cheese, turkey sausage, avocado and raspberries, with some hot tea on the side...because i was lazy and didn't want to wash the french press.
this weekend feels like the "unofficial" beginning of what is usually a pretty crazy time of year for me. the fact that i'm performing with two orchestras right now is making it even crazier. between now and the end of the school year, i've got so many rehearsals and concerts (both my students' and my own) and performance field trips and sometimes, it gets a little overwhelming. i'm also training for broad street in may and the oddyssey half marathon at the beginning of june, so i've got to keep my mileage up and run at least three times a week.
none of this should be taken as a complaint - i honestly love doing all of these things. it just makes me appreciate the slightly less busy weekends (like this one) even more...and makes a little extra sleep and laziness feel perfectly okay. my big plans for the rest of this weekend include hitting up the gym later today and performing in a concert tonight and then running 7ish miles and going on a beer trolley tour in philly with my sister tomorrow.
but first, i have a hot date with my couch and a couple of episodes of six feet under (i'm starting season four today). happy weekend, everyone!
