long weekending
posted by soe 2:51 am

Weekend’s over. I’m not looking forward to heading back to work, but at least I got a lot accomplished over my three days at home:

  1. I didn’t finish any of my knitting project, but I feel like the end is in sight for my grandmother’s birthday wrap — just as we’re heading into a heat wave.
  2. I wrote a pair of postcards that will go out in the morning’s mail.
  3. I visited the Georgetown library and picked up a few new books to peruse. I also took advantage of their back patio to read some of Eleanor & Park, which I also read by the C&O Canal, at a cafe, at a pizzeria, and, finally, on my couch, late into the night.
  4. I stopped by the garden to water and refill our slug traps with beer. I picked spinach and lettuce and probably a pint of strawberries. I also noticed the first tomatoes of the season are growing.
  5. I looked for ducklings in the canal, but only saw a family of geese. Oh, and turtles, cormorants, a couple great blue herons, and what I’m pretty sure was a belted kingfisher.
  6. I rode my bike, probably ten miles or so.
  7. I took a yoga class. (Weak arms!)
  8. I went to the farmers market, where i picked up strawberries and a spear of bamboo. (We’ll make a stir fry this week and use that and some of the bok choy from the garden.)
  9. My friends phoned and invited me to join them for dinner, so we ate Thai food instead of playing on the swings. Still very enjoyable.
  10. I drank tea, mango juice, and an Arnold Palmer outside, but not all at the same time.
  11. I got a couple loads of laundry done, but there are probably three more that need doing. (The perils of living with a stinky boy.)
  12. I mopped the bathroom floor and cleaned the sink and mirror. I’m going to let the aforementioned stinky boy work on the tub.
  13. I went to trivia night at my local bookstore and joined a team of strangers. We did not win, but probably finished in the top third. I left without buying any books, but only because it was my second trip there this week.
  14. I put away the Christmas dvds. Maybe next weekend I’ll go over my desk and put away any spare Christmas cds that are lingering there.
  15. A friend and I played phone tag for a while, but we finally got a chance to catch up in a nice chat.

How about you? How was your weekend?
