Listicles: 10 things to do during the weekend

Fave #6: daytrips in Modo cars
It's Sunday again: Listicles time! This week's topic, as chosen by the head Listicler herself--Stasha of 10 Things To Do During The Weekend. Very appropriate, as here we are, right in the middle of one. However, at the stage I'm at right now, with two little kids, weekends aren't really all that special. We tend to just do the things we do during the week, just at different times & with all four of us. So it was a bit tricky to list ten things. Here's what I love to do on weekends:

  1. Sleep in. Yes, I still get to do this sometimes, even though I have two small children. I suspect being a nightowl is genetic.
  2. Make pancakes or French toast. Then eating them smothered in real maple syrup.
  3. Go for walks with the family. Usually these walks are to the grocery store, pharmacy or park, but it's nice to get out & move.
  4. Get errands done by myself. I biked down to a textile recycling place (more on that later this week) all alone yesterday & it was awesome.
  5. Treats like gourmet doughnuts or ice cream. Our neighbourhood is kind of a mecca for that, with a half dozen bakeries, a high-end doughnut shop, a cupcake place, & a Dairy Queen within a ten-minute walk of our house.
  6. Book a Modo vehicle & take a little daytrip. This is on my to do list for the year: visiting somewhere fun that's too far to walk, bike or bus, like Steveston or Lighthouse Park.
  7. Go out for brunch. We haven't actually done this since Bronte was born, but I'd like to get back into it. 
  8. Go on bike rides. These family rides are on hold for a few more months until Bronte is a bit older. Can't wait to start up again!
  9. Sew things. I tend to squeeze in little projects here & there during the week, but on the weekends when Oli's home, I can sometimes even get a whole hour or two to concentrate on sewing something. Sometimes.
  10. Impromptu get-togethers with friends. We were invited to dinner at the last minute by some of our friends who live just around the corner last weekend & it was a really wonderful evening.

There you have it. I don't get to do all these things every weekend, but I do at least one of them. What are your favourite things to do on the weekend?

  1. great list, I love crocheting my bigger projects on the weekend, so much fun. Errands on your own is such a joy, right? YES YES YES to french toast and pancakes. hmmmmm

    1. I never appreciated going places alone before having children... :) Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Can your kids come and teach mine about sleeping in? I’m a night owl, but it didn’t seem to take. Sounds like your house has great weekends!

    1. Ha! Perhaps we should run workshops... ;) thanks for popping in!

  3. Sounds like a great way to spend weekends! I miss bike riding. We have far too many hills and cars to do that safely. Hiking is a good alternate though!
