mid-september weekending

This weekend included:

Batalá Washington at Adams Morgan Day 2015

  • The final Friday night concert/picnic at Yards Park for the season.
  • The first rain in what feels like forever.
  • Three street festivals: 17th Street, Adams Morgan, and the D.C. State Fair. A diverse assortment of activities that ranged from drag queen performances to pot growing tips to a women’s drum group.
  • New plants into the garden: a Brussels sprout, some choy, and a new-to-me salad green, plus a couple seedlings Rudi found in the donation pile. Several more tomato plants came out; we’re down to just a couple left now.
  • Finishing one audiobook and starting another.
  • A scone from a newish food truck.
  • Laundry and vacuuming.
  • Ripping out what I’d knit on my new socks last weekend and re-casting on with the correct number of stitches. Better to lose five inches of knitting than to make a beautiful sock too small to wear.
  • A trip to the farmers market. We’re getting to the end of heirloom tomatoes, corn, and peaches.
  • The members’ sale at Politics & Prose. I picked up a couple gifts, as well as a copy of Claudia Rankine’s Citizen for me to own.
  • Capreses and corn on the cob for Sunday supper. When the tomato, corn, and basil seasons end, so will our typical summer weekend-concluding meal.
  • Cool, clear weather.
  • Sitting at a cafe with a mug of chai, watching the sun set.
