pre-thanksgiving weekending
posted by soe 2:57 am

Rudi and I kicked off the weekend by catching the late show of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I have complete faith in J.K. Rowling, so I went in expecting to enjoy the show, and we’re pleased to report that our faith was justly placed.

I slept in later than I’d hoped on Saturday, which meant that just after I headed out for my bike ride (which I’ll write about another day), the clouds moved in and the wind picked up and the clothes I was wearing for the 70 degree day where no longer nearly enough.

When I got home, I promptly piled all the clothes I owned on and dove under a blanket and a cat and dozed the rest of the night away. Sure, I woke up to eat homemade pizza and to drowsily watch the first hour of Free Birds, but mostly it was an unproductive evening, although I did get the laundry into the washing machine before I went to bed.

Which meant today needed to be far more focused. I got up at a more reasonable hour and got myself into the shower before heading to the farmers market to procure vegetables and breakfast. I cleaned a little and hung up the laundry. When Rudi got home, we went to the grocery store and the library together and were grateful for prompt bus arrivals that meant we didn’t have to wait long in the chilly, gusty weather.

Rudi made a delicious gardener’s pie (a vegetarian shepherd’s pie) for supper, and I worked on sending out our Christmas party invitation and evaluating our Christmas card stock. (It’s lower than I’d hoped; apparently my post-holiday stocking up was the year before last.)

It's Hard to Nap When Your Mattress Wants to Knit

We watched a little tv, and then Rudi retired for the night. I listened to an audiobook and worked on my Christmas mitts. (I think I figured out the rolling picot problem, but it’s going to require redoing the top of that one mitt. I also knit a thumb onto one of them, but it’s too wide, so I need to rip it back and decrease a couple stitches and try again.)

Now, having had a cup of cocoa, I’m going to go find a place in the fridge for the leftovers and the quince we pulled out for me to poach, and wash the dishes, so I can get to bed.

I hope you had a nice weekend!
