I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and, for those who celebrate, a Happy Easter. My weekend was what I could call perfect. A little bit of everything! Knitting, Stitching, Reading, Archery, Napping, Cooking. It was all wonderful and the weather was pretty nice too.
As noted, I was able to do a bit of Archery. I think this was Saturday afternoon if I remember correctly.
Our poor target withstood the winter, but the colors are done and it is in a bit of a bad shape. But...it works! The above represents the best of the lot that I shot.
We were going to Colin & Mailing's for dinner on Sunday and I was making desserts. I did finally find the unsweetened coconut at Kimberton Whole Foods, so I made the Lemon Macaroon Pie to take.
It turned out well and is one I will definitely make again - it was like a cross between lemon meringue and coconut custard pie. So good! I also made a batch of brownies to take.
Mailing's sister, Anna, was there with the dog she just adopted 3 weeks ago. Marcel and Talbot were NOT happy!! But Otto is so well behaved. He is 2 years old.
He is some kind of a mix (with a tongue that is always hanging out - lol). Anna just taught him to "sit" in the last week.
Dinner was delicious. It was nice enough that we decided to eat outside.
There was a lot of food: Falafel, Tabouli, Hummus, Baba Ghanoush, Muhammara (a red pepper dip with pomegranate seeds that I had never had - DELICIOUS!!) and pita bread.
After dinner but before dessert we decided to take Otto for a walk and move a bit ourselves. We walked in Whites Road Park which is just down the street from where Colin & Mailing live. There were a few others in the park, but it definitely was not crowded. There is a bit of work being done in the park - lots of trees have been planted and they are building a new playground. We noticed a number of "shelters" that someone had constructed.
So fun! When we got back to the house it was beginning to cool down, so we had dessert inside. All in all, a wonderful, relaxing day with family.
Today I'm debating whether to go to the office or not. I have a bunch of printing to do and a conference call at 10, so I thought I would go...but...I did not sleep well last night and I'm thinking I may stay home. Still to be fully decided! Nice to have the option either way.
Hope your Monday is the start of a great week - enjoy!
