My weekend was sort of the perfect mix of friends and family, rest and productivity. It's been awhile since things felt like they were in balance. Too many days have been spent running around like a chicken with its head chopped off. But this weekend was different--there seemed time for everything I had to get done as well as browsing a thrift shop (it had been too long) and enjoying a local diner with my parents. Down time--it's a beautiful thing.
