I feel like this past weekend was the first regular one we’ve had in ages. And believe me, we made the most of it.
There were Friday Night Snacks to kick things off. No TV in the background just music and lots and lots of talking. And maybe a dance or two.
On Saturday (after I finally watched Thursday night’s Grey’s Anatomy and had all the feels about how they handled the departure of Alex Karev) I headed to Sean’s house for a cooking lesson with Jo-Ann. She wanted to learn how to make his chicken soup. And I wanted to learn how to score sourdough bread.
Sean had the dough all made and he shaped one round loaf and one oval loaf.
My skills have a long way to go but I can already see what I’d do differently next time.
Sean sent me home with some of his sourdough starter and there are supplies on their way to me from King Arthur Flour. There’s a learning curve with this but the reward is bread and it’s delicious even when the scoring doesn’t turn out the way you’d hoped.
Our lunch was delicious and the company made it even better. It was a fun morning and afternoon and I look forward to more days like this with my friends.
I spent the afternoon reading and relaxing and in the evening I cooked steaks. It was a great way to end our day.
The best part about Sunday was being home all day. I stayed in comfy clothes, I did some reading and knitting, I got our tax documents together, and planned for the week ahead. We ended the day with a couple of episodes of Grace and Frankie (we are just starting the newest season) and the latest episode of Outlander.
It was a great weekend and just what the doctor ordered.
P.S. The email issues continue. I’m reading all your comments but am not able to respond in my usual way.
