How was your weekend? Mine was not exactly as planned. We started out Saturday morning driving over to Colin & Mailing's. From there we walked to breakfast (about a mile walk through lovely neighborhoods) and after breakfast walked over to the Farmers' Market. Walking back to Colin & Mailing's from the Farmers' Market, I managed to trip on the uneven sidewalk and go down hard. My right knee was torn up pretty badly. We bandaged me up back at the house and had some delicious drinks and then Colin grilled lunch for us. By the time Fletch and I got home (around 4 p.m.), my knee was still bleeding badly so off to the Urgent Care we went. I ended up getting 8 stitches in my knee - right across the part where you bend when walking...I have to keep my leg straight for several days. Geeze! Maybe all this walking isn't such a good idea for me.
Dee and I had made plans to meet up for some coffee, chatting, knitting and lunch on Sunday...but I can't drive! Dee is so sweet😊 - she came over and picked me up and off we went. It was so good to get together with her again. Thanks Dee for being such a good friend!
We did get some very good things at the Farmers' market on Saturday. A bunch of different mushrooms and Sea Beans which I had never heard of. They are delicious! Great just to snack on and I think they would be wonderful in a salad. The woman who sold them to me said she likes to oil a grill pan and then just lightly grill them. Yum.
Anyhoo, I set about to make dinner last night:
First I sauteed some shallots and garlic scapes, then added all the mushrooms...cooked things a bit and added cherry tomatoes and fresh basil (and more EVOO). Served over "ancient grains" pasta - it was delicious:
Sunday morning I re-started (yes there was some unraveling) the Odyssey shawl and I am up to the point where I unraveled.
I wanted the dark yarn at the top of the shawl and it will move into the light greens as I go along. The pattern (so far) is easy to memorize and the yarn is really nice to knit. There is a bit of stellina in it, so a bit of sparkle. I love it!
Well, Fletch drove me into work this a.m., and I guess I should get some work-work done instead of blogging - lol. Hope you all have a great day!
