I realized last week that I am beyond burnt out. Actually, I think I knew this for a while. But last week I managed to not do a project that we had more than a month to do until the DAY BEFORE it was due. That’s not my style. I rocked it, in case you were wondering. I didn’t lose any sleep either.
I’ve been in dire need of some super-relaxing weekend time.
What did I do last weekend? Not a whole heck of a lot. I watched a LOT of Grey’s Anatomy on the couch with this little dude:
He was so snuggly, I didn’t want to leave …
I spent a good chunk of time outdoors because we broke 60° in Iowa (FINALLY). Barney and I walked a bunch (yes! he even went with me — the dog that usually refuses to walk). Also, I managed to hit my 2014 running goal of 5 miles on Saturday, so I signed up for a 10K in July. Actually I may have signed up for the race before I did that, but the last few weeks are kind of a blur, honestly.
I baked a couple of batches of cookies. One batch was a major fail (this one), but they taste good. The other batch turned out so good I’m not sure if I’ll send them to Mark. Kidding. Just don’t count them …
I also cleaned and did a bit of laundry, but I kept all that jazz to a minimum. And I made some more of my veggie chips.
Then I slopped some paint on a canvas*. I use these pieces as backgrounds for my design pieces, and it’s super relaxing to paint, so I’m going to keep doing it.
That about sums it up! I could go for another several days like those, how about you?
What did you do this weekend?
*I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I’m not an artist. I enjoy making shapes and mixing colors. I’m an artist just about as much as Joe Blow who knows how to use InDesign is a graphic designer. And no, Joe Blow, you are NOT a graphic designer.

Hi there. I'm Calee (pronounced CAL-e). If that's too hard, just call me Cal. I also respond to Chimes. I'm a gal hanging onto the last bit of my 20s as I venture into a graduate degree in graphic design, whilst balancing a career, a long-distance relationship, and a million hobbies and trades. Here's the unabridged version.
