Well, my weekend flew by! And now I'm back in the office. So soon! This promises to be a busy week: yoga tonight, a work dinner at my boss' house tomorrow night, another work dinner here Wednesday night (and I have to stick around until the caterers come back to clean up), meetings all day Wednesday and Thursday, and (finally) a massage Thursday night. I'll be more than ready for that by the time Thursday rolls around.
Even though it went quickly, the weekend was nice. Friday night we had pizza with eggplant, green peppers and tomato from the garden.
That's Trader Joe's ready-made pizza crusts which are SO GOOD (and cheap) and easier than their dough (which is what I used to use). There was more stuff on the pizzas - sliced garlic, mushrooms and pepperoni on one for Fletch. Oh, and mozzarella. This is the green pepper Fletch picked from the garden - he thinks it's the nicest bell pepper he ever grew!
Saturday I was up early. Thinking of Honore, I wrote this Haiku:
Hummingbirds fly by
The sun is just coming up
My MSQ time
Fletch and I went to a local farmer's market which was packed and had delicious veggies, but we didn't get anything since I won't be home to cook for the next 4 nights. It was fun to wander around though.
I cooked up some green beans from the garden for dinner along with an acorn squash and a meatloaf (not my favorite, but I was trying to make things where there would be plenty of leftovers for Fletch during the week). I also made drinks for us:
Lemon sorbet, blueberries, vodka and ice blended up. Oh my! Very, very refreshing.
Sitting on the patio, we noticed how many leaves have fallen from our apple tree.
Saturday afternoon late, while I was inside doing food prep, Fletch was sitting on the patio and saw an owl fly by at the edge of our woods! He is pretty sure it was a Great Horned Owl. I'm so disappointed to have missed it.
Sunday I managed to get in a walk along the river. Surprisingly I saw no one kayaking or canoeing or floating on the water. It was a beautiful day, so I'm not sure where everyone was. There were fewer people on the trail too. Luckily the park rangers had been out and cleared the fallen trees off the path. There were plenty of these guys around:
The blue on the wings was so beautiful. The underside of the wings had no blue, but orange dots instead. I'm not sure what type of butterfly this is, but it was gorgeous.
A little knitting was done over the weekend - another square on the blanket and about 15 rows on the sock. Not a lot, but progress is steady, even if slow. And I finally finished A year of Living Danishly. Some parts were interesting to me, but overall the author's writing style just irritated/bored me.
Well, as the TV commercial used to say: "Time to make the donuts." I'd best get to work. Hoping everyone has a wonderful week.
