Hope everyone has been enjoying a restful weekend. I certainly have! Friday night I slept 10 hours and last night 8-8.5! Guess I needed it. And, good thing since I won't get much tonight.
The weekend has been busy, but good. We did grocery shopping yesterday (is it me, or have prices really gone up?) and I got out my winter sweaters and put a few summer things away. It used to take me forever to do this, but several years ago I really purged and I don't have much to do these days. It's a good thing. I also filled 3 Trader Joe's bags with donations - 4 pairs of shoes, a purse, a bunch of tops, etc. Things I hadn't worn or used. No sense keeping them.
I cooked an eye roast, garlic mashed potatoes and a green bean casserole for dinner last night - such Fall comfort food. Later we watched an episode of Shetland on Netflix. Love seeing all the sweaters and the sheep, but I will confess to having a difficult time understanding some of the dialogue. The accents! But it is also so refreshing to see a show with actors/actresses unknown to me. Have any of you watched it?
Today I made banana pancakes for breakfast, cleaned the bathrooms, ran out and dropped of the donation bags, came home and packed for my trip to FL tomorrow. I have a driver lined up to pick me up at 5 (which means he will be here at least by 4:40). My flight's at 7 and it can take an hour sometimes to get to the Phila. airport. And Monday mornings can be a mess. Hopefully it won't be bad. I do have to check my bag (I never carry on - too difficult for me to lift it into an overhead bin with the arthritis I have in my shoulders), but my boarding pass is printed and I am ready to go.
Today I also managed to knit about 10 rows on my shawl (which will be going to FL). And I finished The Housekeeper and the Professor. I loved it. Almost as much as Ove! Now I'm reading Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore. So far, so good. It's on my Kindle which is also going to FL.
I'll be trying to catch up on bog posts come Wednesday afternoon when I am back home (I do read some on my phone, but it is harder (for me) to comment that way).
A parting picture of Marcel as a Yoga Master:
Colin just texted me that picture. So cute. It is grey and damp here - a good afternoon for curling up!
Have a wonderful week, I'll be back later.
