early august weekending
posted by soe 1:25 am

This weekend there was:

  • Blocking the latest knitting project on the office floor over the weekend. (No doors to keep out cats means all blocking over a certain size gets done at work.)
  • Friday evening at The Yards with friends means eating a salad while lying on the ground listening to covers of pop music (from the last 30 years) and watching pink clouds.
  • Making it back across town in time for cocoa outside at a coffeehouse.
  • Rising early (for me) for a garden work day. We filled water barrels and weeded the pathways and then I harvested a few things.
  • Stopping at the store and finding nearly no line.
  • A yogurt parfait with lots of berries from my fridge.
  • A surprise text from an old friend saying he and his family were on their way to town and was I free to meet up with them in an hour?
  • Seeing Jason, his wife, Essia, and their daughters, who are going into 6th and 8th grade (I remember when they were babies!!) in the fall. Catching up on their lives for a few hours. Parting with the hopes of a follow-up visit later in the week.
  • Discovering a comic book store had moved into the neighborhood and making a few purchases.
  • Chatting with my family.
  • Going to a midnight showing of the ’80s classic, Labyrinth.
  • Sleeping in the middle of the bed, surrounded by cats, while Rudi was out of town.
  • A farmers market stroll.
  • A swim with Rudi after he returned home.
  • Laundry. Clean socks and underwear!
  • Sitting out at the local coffeeshop as the sun broke through the clouds.
  • Pulling up the episode of Endeavour we missed the day before it disappeared from PBS’ website.
  • A thunderstorm.
  • Finishing a book.

How about you? How was your weekend?

Weekending along with Pumpkin Sunrise.
