Weekend of 8.24.12

9:25 AM

This weekend was the last one before the school year starts and I head into the third trimester (aka right before things get really crazy). So we decided to be terribly lazy and just do a whole lot of nothing. It rained almost every day and we brought out blankets, put on some new records and settled in on the sofa. On Saturday night we did venture out for our belated anniversary dinner. We had the best time at one of the restaurants at Skyland resort. The place had practically 360 degree views of the mountains and I ordered an embarrassingly large chocolate cake as my dessert. 
I also cooked a lot this weekend. I don't have as much energy as I used to these days so I take advantage of any bursts that I may encounter. I made my mum's pelmeni on Friday and Sunday for lunch I made a creamy mushroom soup. And then wouldn't you know I spotted the most darling toadstool right in our yard a few hours later! 
I'm a little sad to bid farewell to our summer routine but autumn is in the air and there's a lot to look forward to in the coming months so I suppose it evens out in the end. 
Here's to a successful new school year!
