My work weeks are pretty tiring and stressful, spending many hours each day at my work place. So, when the weekend finally arrives, I take the chance to go to refreshing surroundings. My favorite way is to drive out to the natural parks in the country-side and just relax, walking, jogging, just sitting on the bench. That very much rejuvenates me. How about for you ? What is your favorite way of spending the weekend ?

Hi greenline, I have considerable time to do whatever I love in weekend, for it's my off day. I usually would like to read and write myLot posts as well as listening to music in the morning. I enjoy doing all these relaxingly for I don't have to go for part time work as usual. There would be some changes in weekend if my son is back to hometown. he would take us to have breakfast at the food court where his favorite food is served there. After that we would have a pleasant outing at some where nearby riding in his car. We like the fresh air as well as the natural and tranquil environment which is apart from the noisy and busy downtown. It's a great pleasure to walk along the scream. We then sit on the huge rock in the stream. We feel really comfortable to have our bare feet soaked in the cold and crystal clear flowing water. We chat and eat the snacks we bring along. my camera is always with me and of course I won't let go any fascinating scenes and unique stuffs I come across for sure. We enjoy watching the pictures taken on the pc screen after we are back at home. Happy posting and have a nice day!

That sounds very enjoyable, indeed. I very much like going out to the country-side, driving along the country roads, enjoying the refreshing scenic beauties. Yes, I used to take pictures of the places too. Have a nice weekend !

really glad to read your comment here greeline, though it's available after a year long. Does this mean that you are back to myLot again after a long stay away. Yeah, having outdoor activities is healthier than sitting in front of the pc or tv all the time of course. So let us enjoy heartily the fresh air and fascinating landscapes amongst the greens at least once in a week together with our loved ones Lol... I'm looking forward to the coming beautiful Saturday...it's still three days to go before

it all depends of the budget at hand. when we dont have the budget to get out and go somewhere then me and my wife with our son will go out and go to the mall or to the park. when there is no budget at hand we just stay home and find something to do. on a hot day we set up my child baby pool and we all take a dip and on a cold or rainy day we make ourselves busy on helping my wife on the kitchen, while she is cooking something special. our child is only four but he helps around the house with his little hands.

A very happy family, taking care of one another. That is indeed very good. So wonderful that your child, only four years old, is already helping parents around the house !

that was a year ago of discussion and it was fun to read what i said. now my son is five and he sets the table already. lucky that he has not break anything yet. he has firm hands and good grip. he is a big help around the house. though sad to say that i will be leaving next week to work abroad. but i am confident that my son will help his mom around the house. not a big help though but a good help.

Wonderful ! Do you live near a beach ? That is very nice. Even watching the scenic blue sea is very enjoyable and relaxing, isn't it ? I do like going to the beach too when the weather is favorable.

I work Saturdays but I i have Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday off. The very best way to spend this time is either going shopping , either food shopping or window shopping, watching a good movie , and then a good baseball game or this summer soccer game and then my new favorite show(s).

Hello Sarah. Very nice , you have three days off. That would give you plenty of time to relax, doing things what you enjoy. Window shopping is one of my favorite ways for relaxation too.

That's perfectly right. One has to sleep early on Sunday night so that one can get up early enough on Monday morning not to be late to work. I get up late some days, and so get to work pretty late ! Ha ha !

Oh, I can understand you have very busy work schedules. Yes, indeed, you do deserve time to relax and enjoy life. I suppose you would be able to organize your work hours in the future better !

As a mom to be with a 4 month old baby in my belly, I love to do NOTHING on the weekends! :) I do feel guilty sometimes. Thinking I should be doing something much more productive than watching movies and indulging on my favorite snacks. But in all reality, these lazy weekends are all that keep me going!

Okay, weekends would be the perfect time to relax. Watching movies is a good option for relaxation too. Do you spend a lot of time on the internet too ?

Yes, me too. I would get up pretty late on Saturdays. I would then miss my breakfast. That's the day I always go for brunches at some of my favorite restaurants !

I love to just relax, go shopping, or spend quality time with family and friends. There is no other better way to spend a weekend that doing what you love best.

I certainly agree with you. Weekend is the time to spend with the family. During the week, one gets so busy that there is rarely time to talk to family members.

I have a very stresful job too. I like to do things on my days off that are relaxing and helps me to feel fulfilled. I like to oilpaint or at this time float around in the pool and relax. I do like to go hiking too.

Hello Jen. Nice to see you. Oh, you like going hiking too ? Would that be on the Smoky Mountains ? I know that is a very beautiful region, very scenic and enchanting ! Have a nice weekend !

My favorite way of spending the weekend is going to the mall to watch a movie, eat and dine to a new restaurant and the shop a little. Enjoy the weekend!

Since I don't cook at home, I do go out to the malls and restaurants for lunches and dinners. On weekends, I like going to the restaurants which serve delicious buffets.

i just rest. I work 5 days a week, over 12 hours a day. When the weekend comes we just sleep and regenerate for the labour to come. Sometimes i think we work too hard because we are both too tired to enjoy our time off blessings

Working over 12 hours a day ! Oh, that is very exhausting, indeed. I would be very very tired if I have to be working over 12 hours a day. Yes, weekend is the chance to sleep for hours !

Weekend is rest day, and family day. Whether at home, in the church, in the mall or anywhere else, as long as its with my family.

Always wonderful to spend the time together with family members. Everyone will feel happy and relaxed. I very much like the way you said, weekend is family day !

My weekend isnt as relaxive as yours is. I got classes on saturday and its in the afternoon, which means i cannot enjoy the entire day. So i got Sunday, which i spend either with my family, brother or girlfriend. Seldom, i go out with friends on special occasions, and only on those occasions because i have alot of time to spend with them during weekdays. There isnt really a fixed thing i do on the weekend, so its pretty much a suprise.

Fighting and dancing with family members too ? Oh yes, some times we get into arguements, right ? Well, that is the value of a family any way ! But, everybody is happy !

I work a 4 nights/ 4 off shift pattern, with frequent overtime, so weekends don't really exist. I spend too much time on my PC if I have week days off. We will try to take a walk to the park, or even a bus/ short rail journey, to escape the house at the weekend.

Just for a change, it is very good to go out-of-town over the weekends, isn't it ? I do that too some times, to be relieved of the busy noisy downtown core !

I usually spend my weekends at home. I wake up early on Saturdays to do my weekly laundry. After doing it, I speel again. I usually have breakfast and lunch at the same time during Saturdays. The rest of the afternoon is spent on reading, watching DVD's, eating and working out. Sunday is spent with my boyfriend.We usually go to the mall to watch a movie, eat in a restaurant or just simply stroll around. I feel rejuvenated every weekends. I get a lot of rest from my work. Since I do not have a personal laptop yet, I also get a chance to be out of my internet world once in a while too.

Yes, weekend is the time to find ways of relaxation and getting refreshed. After a long week at week, one has to relax. We all have different ways that we like for relaxation, movies, music, shopping, strolling around, and so on.
