Upshur Street Books on Its 2nd Day in Business

This weekend included:

  • Halloween: carving pumpkins, chasing down trick-or-treaters who overlooked our basement denizen, dozing through Young Frankenstein
  • Sleeping in both days
  • Washing the whole can of orange hairspray back out of my hair (except for where I dyed my scalp orange (oops))
  • Brunch with friends
  • Harvesting the last handfuls of tomatoes and the basil plants from the garden before overnight temps dipped into the 30s
  • Watching the first season of Black Books again
  • Eating delicious vegetarian stew that Rudi put together from the random veg in our fridge
  • Consuming more Halloween candy than was wise
  • Hitting up the farmers market (highlights include honeynut squash, quince & pear jam, and what may be the last raspberries of the season)
  • Biking up to Petworth to check out a new bookstore on its opening weekend and visiting a well-liked coffeehouse on the way home
  • Laundry, including the first load of handwashing of the season
  • Knitting and reading

How about you? What were you up to this weekend?

Weekending along with Karen at Pumpkin Sunrise.
