A day in the life : a fall Saturday

I have seen these posts recently on several blogs, and thought you might enjoy a peak into a typical Saturday in France. Here goes :

5:38 a.m. : awake. Mind starts racing about everything I have and want to do this weekend. Start making mental lists.

6:30 a.m. Get up because I couldn’t fall back asleep.

6:45 a.m. Eat breakfast. Protein pancakes, coffee, half a banana.

7:00 a.m. Check social media, read the news on line. Work on blog posts. The morning is when I have most of my ideas.

7:20 a.m. Have second cup of coffee with daughter who is having her breakfast. Turn OFF the computer so we can talk.

8:00 a.m. Pay bills. Do laundry.

8:45 a.m. Beautiful fall morning. Decide to go running then to the gym because I will not be able to exercise Sunday. I felt great and ended up doing 13 km.

10:15 a.m. Stop at the gym for some weights and stretching. On the way home buy  newspaper and a mango. It looked too yummy.

5:00 p.m. FaceTime with family in Africa for an hour.

6:00 p.m. Daughter’s friends arrive for sleep over.

9:30 p.m. retire to bedroom to read because kids are camped out in the living room.

    Wow! You accomplish a lot before I”m even awake on the weekends! I can’t really say I have a typical Saturday because I’m always planning different things to do but I generally like to get up, have some coffee and breakfast and then get going. I hate wasting the day!
