For me, weekends are "getting things done" time -- things that I don't have time to do during the week. It's time to tidy up, do some yardwork, and be otherwise productive.
So, today (Sunday) I did a fair amount of yardwork -- although I also partially sawed a short log in half, so that it could dry without splitting. (I've put the log back into water; I'll finish sawing it next week.) And I exercised: I don't particularly enjoy exercising -- but I like the result (i.e. getting stronger. Eventually).
And I got dinner for the kids.
But. I sat on the sofa and watched two episodes of As Time Goes By with The Girl -- an old show that she and I both enjoy. And I watched an episode of Cupid online -- possibly my favorite t.v. show, and probably my favorite episode of that show.
So, that's about two hours I spent watching t.v. (so to speak), when I could've been productive with things around the house. Like vacuuming.
But, you know what? I enjoyed how I spent my time. It made me happy. And doing things that make me happy are as valid as "being productive".
