I had a very nice and super relaxing weekend, made especially so by the fact that I stayed in comfie clothes from Friday night right through until . . . well . . . right now because it’s about time to get ready for work.
Here’s my recap:
I met Jo-Ann for a great cappuccino and avocado toast on Friday morning. No picture of the avocado toast though, Mary! I had a meeting that morning and then spent the day running some errands, finishing The Water Dancer while reading on the deck, and puttering around.
There were Friday Night Snacks, of course. And the movie Dracula from 1931. Not scary. Pretty lame, in fact, but I suppose the newness of talkies needs to be considered when evaluating that one.
On Saturday Dale and I planted the bulbs I bought from White Flower Farm. Spring Me is much more ambitious than Fall Me and my enthusiasm resulted in an order of 100 assorted daffodils. Dale dug the holes and I planted them in and among the perennials in my front garden bed. I also took the opportunity to clean things up out there, cutting back the dead coneflowers and black eyed susans and doing some other trimming and weeding. I haven’t yanked the geraniums and vinca vine out of the window boxes yet as they are still blooming. And I saw that woolly bear caterpillar. My sources tell me that the wide brown band means a mild winter ahead. I’m ignoring other signs which indicate differently and just generally feeling hopeful.
I did some work with the cricut and made this tray as a donation to the raffle table at a craft fair where I work. I later decided there were too many bubbles in the vinyl and took it off and need to start over but at least I got a photo of it first. I also made a quick run to our local butcher for steaks for dinner. We enjoyed them with some garlic mashed potatoes, oven roasted acorn squash, and a new Christmas movie on the Hallmark Channel. (don’t judge me)
I made eggs for breakfast on Sunday and we relaxed and ate and read the paper together. We had discussed possibly shopping for a new office chair for Dale but both agreed (without even discussing it) that the cold rain falling outside made staying home much more appealing. And that’s what we did.
I wound yarn for a new project. Dale built a fire.
We watched the Pats beat the Browns while enjoying delicious snacks.
It was a really wonderful weekend.
