It was a three-day weekend, which means I have 50% more weekend to report:

  • Dinner at our friends’ house. Lots of delicious food, concluding with homemade cherry turnovers.
  • Breakfast with Rudi before his ride.
  • Laundry.
  • Beginning The Woman Who Died a Lot.
  • The usual February letdown begins, but a little later than normal … and perhaps a little less severely, at least so far.
  • New reverse lights for the car — and proving that there was a screwdriver in it to access the panels.
  • Snacks and shopping at Union Market followed by additional shopping in Virginia (where I had to go to return a library book).
  • Three episodes of Doctor Who.
  • A cold wind means my homemade sweater joins my turtleneck and handknit woolen accessories.
  • The farmers market brings produce, breakfast, and a bouquet of tulips, ranunculus, and anemone.
  • Chai and muffins for brunch.
  • Duckpin bowling. Rudi wins two out of three, but I don’t care.
  • The documentary Kings of Pastry.
  • Finishing a pair of socks for Rudi — the first in probably 9 months. (Photos to come later this week.)
  • Sleeping ridiculously, luxuriously late.
  • Getting dressed into workout clothes, but never actually working out. (It’s not really the thought that counts.)
  • The beginnings of a deep clean.
  • A fresh tablecloth.
  • Colorful fairy lights restrung around the periphery of the living room.
  • Tuna sandwiches.
  • Good Neighbors.
  • Disappearing into the bedroom with my book and a cat during intense tv.
  • Savoring the first few pages of Kindred over a cup of tea. (This is not a zine to be read quickly.)

How about you? How was your weekend?
