sunday night recap

So, two days after making grandiose plans, let’s see how we did, shall we?

  • Distribute publicity for Michael’s play.
  • Check. I’ll hit a few more places tomorrow, but I took care of the places he specifically requested. As a benefit, when I stopped into Tryst, I ordered a Washington Carver smoothie, which is essentially a peanut butter-chocolate milkshake. It was like drinking a Reese’s peanut butter cup!

  • Buy some tomato props for the garden, weed and water, and plant some fall seeds.
  • I bought tomato cages, as well as twine and bamboo poles. We took two of the cages over today to prop up the burgeoning tomatoes, but tomorrow we’ll have to play with poles and string. I watered and picked some lettuce, but did not do much weeding nor any planting.

  • Go fruit picking.
  • Yes! I spent Saturday afternoon up in Poolesville and came home with some blackberries and some blueberries. This also gave me the opportunity to wade in a creek and eat lunch with my feet in the mud.

  • Watch Tour de France coverage.
  • Check! I have watched lots of spandex and scenery fly by on the computer screen.

  • Knit on my Tour de France knit-along project.
  • I’m at the heel turn on the sock and feeling pretty comfortable with my progress for week one of the Tour. Plus, I love the yarn’s colors.

  • Read, preferably outside. I currently have three or four books going, so I don’t feel like it’s unreasonable to finish at least one of them.
  • Well, I read, both inside and out, but did not have a chance to finish anything. Tomorrow maybe… We did watch the fifth Harry Potter movie in preparation for Wednesday evening, as well as a few episodes from the first season of WKRP.

  • Bike a bit or swim — both days.
  • No biking all weekend, but Rudi did drag me out of the house to the pool this afternoon. It was lovely.

  • Pay bills.
  • Tomorrow.

  • Clean.
  • Failed at this one, unless I meant the car, in which case I did stumble on a charity car wash Saturday morning. I did also vacuum, which made me feel much better about the mess everywhere else.
