is it nearly the weekend?

Life can get busy and I can get lazy. We live in a beautiful country where the weather is just lovely so why haven't we been making the most of it?

When I first arrived I used to go to the beach all the time and be out and about all the time, enjoying the outdoors leaving the house work behind me to go and do something fun! Now I like to have our house looking nice and clean which is fine but then in the evenings and on the weekends we haven't been making the most of where we live or the outdoors. Don't get me wrong I love hanging out at home, chilling, watching some TV and just being BUT it can get a bit old. Also, being our first year of marriage we are learning lots of things about balance, things I am sure we will continue to learn but I am keen to start having more 'up and go'. This weekend we have big plans:

Saturday morning - All church leaders, bible study leaders (that's us), kid leaders (that's me) etc are meeting up in the morning to discuss the next year and then we are heading off to the beach for a picnic and for some fun.

Saturday evening - SP suggested we go out for a nice dinner in the evening - I mean who is going to argue with that?

Sunday - we are going to do the Spit to Manly walk which is a beautiful 9 km walk. One of our friends who we haven't seen for a long time, who MC'd at our wedding is coming with us too.

So all in all a fun packed weekend which I am really looking forward too, we didn't really get much chance to catch up with everyone at church on Sunday night as people were popping by to say welcome back, so Saturday morning will be a great opportunity to say hi to people and spend some time hanging out. Plus we are adding the element of exercise + fun by going on a lovely walk - who would have thought it...

Is it nearly the weekend yet?

Healthy eating = check
Exercise = check, gym last night + this morning = :-)

The walk sounds like a cool one! I really enjoy hiking!

Yeah I have done it once before, it is lovely and if the weather is nice I might get a slight tan, I am looking particularly white and English. I am ok with the English thing but I am REALLY pale. That's what 3 weeks in the cold UK will do to ya ;)

Sounds like a great weekend to me. You're absolutely right, who can argue with an offer out to dinner.

I watched a travel show about Australia just the other day. I learned lots of interesting things. Like "Aus is the size of the US, but the population wouldn't fill ______ (insert appropriate US city)." And the vast majority of the people live near the beach.

Did you learn that you would like to visit it one day?

I love being outside. Lately in Austin we have been getting freezing rain and its cold! That's not what I signed up for! I'm ready for nice weather again!
