I Need a Weekend from My Weekend...

Whew, I had a lot going on this weekend.  So much that I actually turned down meeting a friend for drinks last night, because I was DONE by the end of the day.  I apparently need to schedule some downtime for myself!
Yesterday started with a bowl of fresh blueberries, peach, and plum.  I love fresh summery fruit :)  No photo since my camera is still not working :(  Here's the update on the waterlogged camera.  I *think* the thing was almost back in working condition and then when I went to put the memory card in I realized a piece of rice was lodged in there.  A lot of people suggested putting my camera in rice to help it dry out.  I did so with all it's doors open to get the inside dry and the stupid rice went into the card port.  In the process of trying to dislodge it, I may have screwed the thing up even more (i mangled some prongs trying to dislodge the rice), because now I'm getting a "card read error" message upon turning the camera on....  NOT GOOD!
I still have no phone, but the husband just arrived home this morning and is going to take a look and see if he can make it work.  I don't have high hopes, but he actually has fixed his own phone 3 times, so you never know.  He wouldn't let me get a new phone til he tried messing with it, so I've now been phone-less going on four days here.
I later met my friend Chloe for a late brunch at The Flying Biscuit.  I've been wanting to try this place for a really long time and it totally lived up to my expectations.
 (this is the best I can do without a camera...rrrr)
I had The Hollywood Omelette, which was: Egg whites, spinach, mushrooms, and white cheddar cheese topped with a warm tomato coulis and served with fresh fruit.  It came with the signature biscuit and wow, everything was delish!  I even tried a bite of Chloe's grits after she insisted (I told her I wasn't a big fan of grits), and they too were awesome.  Breakfast Win!
I went home and regrouped and later in the afternoon I headed back out for an afternoon Power Yoga class.  I met Jessie and also saw Jen there.  I again was a human fountain of sweat, but the class was great and I felt good after.  One thing I LOVE at this yoga studio is the lavender scented cold towels they give you during savasana.  Mmmmmm...  So needed by the end of a sweaty class!
After yoga, I was DONE.  I went home, grilled up some zucchini over quinoa and black beans, caught up on internet stuff, watched P.S. I Love You, and gave the pup some attention.  Really great downtime :)
It's going to be another busy week!  Do you schedule in downtime for yourself??

I need to find a yoga studio in Mooresville... reading about all the Charlotte bloggies and their yoga makes me jealous ;)

And yes, I do schedule down time... I think it's an important part of the life/work balance!

I really want to try this place! And now Brad does too. :) Sunday is usually my downtime. And that usually involves baking and laundry, but I think I seriously would go crazy if I actually did nothing.
