broodings from the burrow

less successful weekend
posted by soe 9:04 am

Let’s start with the good news. I did succeed in:

  • Seeing the Toulouse-Lautrec and Lichtenstein exhibits at the National Gallery
  • Making strawberry shortcake
  • Watching a good number of baseball games on tv
  • Getting to the farmers’ market
  • Putting a new water filter on the kitchen faucet
  • Doing some cleaning around the Burrow
  • Buying batting gloves and a pot and soil for the tomato seedling
  • Watching Bridget Jones II — it started off terrible, but got better after it moved to Thailand (and the Bridget Jones-Colin Firth interview in the bonus feature was very funny
  • Knit about 64 rows on my current project

On the other hand, I did not succeed in:

  • Buying a couch
  • Getting out on the bike — just too hot for me
  • Potting the tomato
  • Going to the Pride parade — again, too hot
  • Watching Kitchen stories
  • Enjoying the exhibits at the National Gallery — it was just too crowded (a friend compared it to standing on the Metro at rush hour) and I forgot I don’t particularly care for Toulouse-Lautrec’s style (although the rooms that focused on how TL and his contemporaries portrayed the same subject were interesting)
  • Making the apartment look like we’d done any cleaning

I don’t know. It just seems like the weekend should have been better than it was. Too many expectations, I suppose. But this week holds the promise of a sneak preview on Thursday and cooler weather towards the end of the week, so I suspect I will lose the funk that’s been hovering over me since August temperatures arrived a week ago.
