Sunday Poser # 129- Weekends

Welcome back to another Sunday Poser

This week my question is;

Do you like to relax at home on the weekends or go out?

Now that ( hopefully) we are over the worst of the Covid pandemic, people have started to go out, especially on the weekends and holidays for a meal, a movie, or just for fun with family or friends.

I was having a conversation with Elizabeth In comments the other day and we both agreed that the three years we have spent in enforced isolation has left a mark on our desire to socialize. I too am reluctant to go out every weekend and would rather prefer to order food for eating at home.

The zest and zeal to be out and about has dimmed considerably. Another factor may be inflation which has almost doubled the cost of having a meal in a restaurant. And even if we could afford it, living in a country where the majority of the people are struggling, doesnโ€™t seem right.

What is your usual routine for the weekends?

Please share your thoughts in the comments section or you can write your own post and link it to this one so that I can find it.

As usual, thanks of visiting and reading.

  1. I mostly prefer staying home and relaxing, unless my destination is outside in nature and I can have limited contact with people. I was an introvert long before COVID. I love sitting in the woods or on the beach.

  2. I used to HAVE to be out and doing something on the weekends, but I think I’ve gotten so used to being home, and relaxing with my kids on the weekends, that I enjoy doing that now – rather than going out or finding something for us to do every weekend. I used to feel like we HAD to be out, and that the kids NEEDED to be entertained, but I have learned that even us doing puzzles at home, cooking and baking together, playing video games or just sitting out on our patio – has become something we enjoy, so I totally like staying in most weekends and enjoying finding new things to do. Here and there, we will venture out though. Love the post! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. I guess that home is where the heart is. If you can’t relax there, where can you relax, unless chaos and confusion is swarming around your household! Enjoy the rest of your weekend Sadje! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜˜ Cheers! ๐Ÿฅ‚

  3. I’m not eating out either, only when travelling and there isn’t other option. Being close to people in a close space still scares me. Weekends go by fast, it’s the time I have to work on my journals and some painting in between grocery shopping, cleaning the house and cooking. Blogging too, it is in the weekends I have time to catch up your the reading and writing.

  4. After having Covid change my outlook on “out there,” I prefer being home more. But I’ve enjoyed getting out to my part-time job – delivering packages for Amazon. It’s roughly ten hours a week, but I do not socialize since I rarely interact with customers. It’s nice to see the sun and the greenery around me. In that way, it gives me a bit of a lift I don’t get being at home. We definitely get out more than before to eat, but not as much as before Covid.

  5. I have to say I prefer staying in, too, if I have the choice. Whether its a remnant of lockdown or getting older, abd being happier in my company, I don’t know. Or even a combination of both.
    However, I know my son, at nearly 18, wants to go out, be it to play cricket, or meet with friends.

  6. I’ve always preferred staying at home but I have to admit that due to the lockdown, it made me anxious being around people. I’m an introvert but was not that anxious around crowds. Going out with friends and my younger brother from time to time does help

  7. Weekends are my recharge days. I need to have the time at home to catch up on things here, and also to recharge myself after a week of work and ‘peopling’. Unfortunately, its also the only time I have to catch up with friends and family. So I try to not schedule something for every day so that I can still get the time I need to take care of myself. ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž

  8. Being on my own a lot I prefer to stay in, maybe have a meal delivered occasionally. But if others are around I do enjoy going out – no cooking, no clean up. Spending time with my boyfriend and I in the same state has created opportunity for a few nights out, which I have enjoyed.

    1. Thanks for sharing. One doesnโ€™t like going out by oneself, unless youโ€™re already out and about. Iโ€™m glad you get to enjoy meals with your boyfriend
