Eat something good for you that you like, then find a project you really enjoy and put in a good chunk of time working on it.
– Tidying up and catching up with your newspapers, magazines & catalogs. Don't get hung up on reading guilt and think you need to finish them all. Just get them looking nice and read the quick stuff/toss the junk.
– Catch up on uploading photos to Flickr (or other photo sharing website, which I have heard might exist, but why?) and title/tag them while you can still remember what they show. Charge your camera battery while you're at it and then (important) put it back into the camera today.
– Clean up your desk or project space and then spend an hour doing the most creative thing you do there, writing, sewing, drawing, whatever you like.
– Clear the dining room table and the kitchen counters of stuff that doesn't belong there, wash the dishes so the sink is ready for action, then plan a nice meal. Head out to the farmers' market to shop for ingredients if you have one in your area today.

Thank goodness for RSS feeds, otherwise I never would have seen these two recent entries.
* Had a nice brunch out with my husband, and while there we designed how to use the built in bookcases around our apartment fireplace as desks.
* Uploaded some pictures to Flickr
* Wrote some long-overdue thank you cards
* Filled two bags for goodwill
Thank you for the Discardia idea. 🙂
Yay! That’s a great list of accomplishments!
Yes, feed readers are a very Discardian idea: discard the idea that you have to remember to check on all those irregularly updated websites you like. 🙂
I discarded physical stress and tension on Saturday: booked a hot tub and an aromatherapy massage, and had a glass of wine and some nibbles at my favorite wine bar in Santa Cruz (Soifwine.com if anyone is curious).
Today, I cleaned all the junk out of the refrigerator, threw all compostables into the compost bin, shopped at the farmers market, picked/washed/salad-spun the basil and cilantro I bought and put in ziploc containers with a paper towel to keep dry. Cleaned up the kitchen table, and am about to clean up the dining table, and move two obstacles out into the garage, and then make dinner and prep breakfast for tomorrow.
How did you know I was planning to do all these this weekend, and could use your encouragement? You’re my favorite patron saint!
Wow! What a great weekend, Elke! Congratulations – glad to help. 🙂
