Weekends: A Conundrum.

Weekends can be such a conundrum. I am like the majority of people in the way that my weekdays go like this:
7:30am - Wake up.
7:45am - Actually muster up enough  motivation to get out of bed and get ready for work.
8:30am - Begin my daily commute. Curse at traffic uncontrollably. Ponder why it takes years to complete certain road construction projects.
9:00am - Begin a long day of phone calls, spreadsheets, reports, and other mindless tasks.
5:00pm - Rush out the door with visible relief that I get to leave. Repeat morning traffic situation.
5:45pm - Arrive home, exhausted, frustrated, as afternoon traffic is TERRIBLE.
Then I usually go for a run, make some dinner, blah blah blah. Wash, rinse, repeat. This is how I spend ten hours a day, five days a week. Usually during this time I am daydreaming about what art endeavors I want to tackle in the upcoming weekend. Those two precious days are the only ones I have to myself, to do what I want to do, all day long.
Then the weekend arrives and sometimes all I want to do it laze around, unwind, read books, watch a TV show, talk on the phone. And it makes me feel so guilty, because it's like I'm not taking advantage of the days. But is that such a bad thing? After spending 50 hours of the last five days doing something that I honestly do not want to be doing, a little unwinding is normal right? I mean art never feels like work; it exhilarates me and makes me buzz and smile. Ugh, that guilt is just getting the best of me today, because I have been on the couch reading for oh the past three hours. If only every day was like a weekend...
Enough of that rambling. I did make it out to Franklin Park Conservatory yesterday to take some more summery pictures. Camera adventures are something I can't get enough of lately. Some delicious summery inspiration:

Can't believe tomorrow is Monday and back to the grind already. So many things to think about these days...


Hi Jenn , I know exactly what

Hi Jenn , I know exactly what u mean - I can relate !!It's the things that I do at home just get me through the workin' day. But sometimes real life sucks the creativity right out of me. That's when doing 'nothing' seems to recharge my batteries. Although this causes a certain amount of guilt as if I'm wasting good creative time.Got to get over it !!Gorgeous shots - fave 3rd from the top with the fence - I look into your pics and I'm there.Keep dreamin' ^_^xx

It's comforting to know that
