How are you? And, how was your weekend? Mine was lovely. Friday ended up being a fairly busy work day and I was exhausted by the time that was over. We made some home-made pizza for dinner which turned out so well. We will often broil some eggplant slices to go on pizza, but Friday we used a summer (yellow) squash instead. And some marinated artichoke hearts sealed the deal. Yum. I was pretty tired and was in bed by 9:30!! That felt wonderful.
Saturday dawned and I got ready to head over to Dee's for some fun. She took me over to Lambertville, NJ which is just such a quaint and cute little town. We hit a coffee shop (of course) for some delicious coffee and knitting time. Then we headed to Chive for lunch. The last time I ate at Chive they were located in PA, but since then they have moved across the River to NJ. Their food is always fresh and delicious. After that we headed to Twist so that I could enhance my yarn stash. Not needed by any means, but definitely fun! Here's what came home with me.
The Opal yarn just screamed SPRING to me and the Crazy Zauerball. What can I say? I'm not normally a "pink person," but this ball of yarn kept reaching out and grabbing me. I had to have it! Such a nice day! Thank you Dee.
I was home by around 3 p.m. and Fletch came in a little after me. He had gone over to Colin & Mailing's house to repair their mailbox which had started tilting before the kids moved to Austin and he also took over some garden fencing for Mike to use. Fletch and I sat out a short while on the patio - it was a little chilly with a breeze, but with jackets on, we were ok. I had picked up some fried chicken for dinner and just made a bunch of stir-fry vegetables to go with that.
Sunday's weather was all over the place. We had some breakfast and I worked a little bit on my stitching. I was determined to take a walk, but the sun would come out and then it would rain, then the sun would start to come out again and then it would rain really hard for a bit. We even ended up with hail in the afternoon! No walk for me that day. But I'm hoping to get out this afternoon. I have one conference call at 11:30, so maybe early afternoon I can get out. I need to drop off a book at the library and pick up some prescriptions at CVS too. Nothing too exciting for a start to this first week of April.
So, tell me, what did you do this weekend?
