Weekend Things

Carole wants to know 10 things I did over the weekend.  If you read yesterday's post, you already know most of them:
  1. Cooked a lot:  lamb on the grill, crawfish etoufee
  2. Baked some: a cake, cornbread, cookies
  3. Walked on the towpath from Oaks to Phoenixville
  4. Enjoyed a fire in the pit Saturday night
  5. Napped (of course)
  6. Finished "Circling the Sun" (loved it) and started "The Zig Zag Girl" which is okay
  7. Cleaned the bathrooms but successfully avoided other housework
  8. Avoided paying bills (guess I will need to do that tonight)
  9. Harvested tomatoes and made a batch of artisanal ketchup
  10. Watched hummingbirds come to our various feeders...mesmerizing
What did you do this weekend?


  1. It really does sound like a lovely weekend. "Circling the Sun" is on my to-read list.

    I did pay bills on Sunday ... begrudingly (but that's not news).

  2. Paying bills, bah! We were wildly excited that the electric bill might be a smidge lower next month because we had the air off for 3 consecutive days. (note, it is back on today with a vengeance!)

  3. YARN SHOPPING!!! It's my favorite way to spend a weekend AND I get to do it again THIS weekend.

    Happy week to you!

  4. Oh, a fire pit. We haven't lit ours since the kids moved out. We are such old fuddy duddies.

  5. Your weekend sounds like it was a very delicious one ♥


  6. I have now placed a hold at the library for "Circling The Sun" .
