Hmm…choosing my first weekend activity


Ok, so today is Thursday and I need to choose the first activity for the weekend coming. Exciting! The book promises that none of the suggested ideas are expensive, which is good (I hear my husband give a sigh of relief.)

It’s important to remember that this is about reclaiming life’s SIMPLE pleasures, not some kind of bucket list. I won’t be throwing myself off bridges attached to rubber bands or anything foolish like that. To give you examples, some of the ideas* from the book are:

  • Sleep under the Stars
  • Have a Picnic
  • Browse a museum or gallery
  • Go Beachcombing
  • Catch Rainbows
  • Go Mushroom hunting (really? They try and get away??)
  • Fly a Kite
  • Hear the Dawn Chorus – (actually I hear this every damn morning so I feel I can cross this one off…although in the spirit of the book I reluctantly suppose I could get up and listen happily and with wonderment rather than burying my head under the pillow and cursing their fluffy little feathers grrr…

At this stage I’m leaning towards either ‘Pick your Own’ or ‘Have a Picnic’

Will let you know as soon as I decide! I think the decision making process calls for some red wine, and it is after 5.00pm…

*(I’m not sure whether to refer to them as ‘activities’, ‘ideas’ or ‘experiences’ – which one sounds best to you?)

  1. How about refering these activities to – ‘simple pleasures’ as your title mentions 🙂 And it certainly is, for those of us who read your delightful entries!
