How was your weekend? Good, I hope. Mine was good. Nothing out of the ordinary and nothing spectacular, but that's fine with me. Saturday I met up with Dee for some coffee, knitting and catch-up chatting. That felt good (especially after a very long work day on Friday). Fletch grilled some chicken for dinner and I made some spicy yellow rice and a garden salad of green beans, onions and tomatoes with a drizzle of EVOO and a bunch of basil.
Saturday's weather was just so nice. Sunday we woke up to a bit of rain and had rain on and off all day. We got the grocery shopping done and I managed to wash and dry two loads of laundry. Fletch loves fried mushrooms and I hate frying any food. So...I went ahead and ordered an air fryer. I made the mushrooms for dinner on Sunday to go with some fresh bruschetta. The shrooms turned out great! I cannot wait to try other things - winter squash, Brussels sprouts, etc. Deb posted last week about making fried green tomatoes - YUM!
So, a new toy to have some fun with and experiment a bit.
I did a very little bit of stitching and knitting over the weekend. My eyes seemed to be tired a lot and, of course, if doesn't help not having the correct prescription for my left eye yet.
This is shaping up to be a very busy week. I now have to go to the office both today and tomorrow. What's up with that? I need to meet with Bruce this morning and then tomorrow a bunch of folks will be in for panel interviews to replace Bill on the West Coast. I'm hoping that I'm just in for 2-3 hours each morning, but time will tell. And then Wednesday the right eye gets done! WooHoo, I really cannot wait for that and then getting updated glasses.
Looks like today will be a pretty one. A bit chilly this early a.m. (54 or so) but it felt so good to sleep (very well, thank you!) with no AC and not even the ceiling fan. Just the windows wide open. I did notice that bird song is happening a bit later in the morning than a month ago. And early Sunday morning (like 4 a.m.) Fletch and I both heard an owl in our woods!
Time to rally and get ready for the day. Here's to a great week ahead!
