You’ve waited all week for this. It’s the weekend! Now what are you going to do?

The weekend is your time to relax and enjoy yourself. But it can also be a stressful time. The weekend is when you have to do all those chores and errands that you didn’t have time for during the week. And don’t forget to spend some quality time with your family!

I usually spend quality time with my spouse talking about what has happened during the week  and what  we are going in the rest of the of it … we also go shopping at weekends, having a dinner at fancy restaurant and sometimes trying to finish some errands.

I love weekends! It’s a time I use to relax, to distract my mind!
I study very much during the week, I have a lot of chores… it’s stressful, so I try to enjoy these two days, I devote them to myself…hahaha

This weekend I’m going to an assembly based on biblical topics and I’m very happy! :D

Weekend with a great weather here. Sunny and warm.  I’m going to use it for playing football with friends (yes yes i know it’s sounds like “typical” thing for boys …). Then spending some time with family and some walk. Those are the plans.

And, talking about nature, on April 22 will be the Earth Day, so…


HAPPY EARTH DAY and enjoy that day looking the nature around you, looking to the sky, to the clowns, to the color of the sky and to the moon. Look with attention at what you usually don’t value. Try to apreciate that beauty!


Try to care of the little piece of nature that is around you! ;)


And enjoy this end of the weekend with that wonderful beauty, valuing that finite gift that we still have! ;)

Yes, the most wonderful time on weekends is morning, early morning. Well, I know sleeping in is great too, but for those with biological hours of early wake ups, the best thing is to hit the road and get outside when everyone is dreaming; it’s all quiet and nice and sunny and the air is fresh, just like on that picture that Ryo posted.
