early march weekending
posted by soe 2:20 am

This was a quiet weekend. I took myself bowling yesterday and spent last night and today being surprised exactly how many muscles in your butt you use to bowl. Other than some soreness, though, it was just what I needed to clear my head. It’s surprising how refreshing it feels to fling a ball as hard as you can at something that will clatter loudly to the ground. (In case you were wondering, it takes three games to clear my head and a fourth one to bowl a proper game.)

This weekend was the quarterly member sale at one of my local bookshops, so I headed there, as well. I bought myself a book and one for an upcoming swap out of the frequent buyer dividends we’d accrued shopping at Christmas, so it was kind of like they were free!

Today I acquired another book, this time a cookbook. My farmers market decided to institute a free frequent shopping program to drum up business at the winter market. Because I go the market every weekend we’re in town regardless of the season, and because I’ve had no travel plans this winter, they’ve rewarded me with a market bag and a book with recipes for cooking vegetable dishes for one. As Rudi is about to begin a two-week road trip with his skiers, its arrival really is quite timely. Maybe I’ll eat something for supper besides sandwiches or cereal while he’s away!

I also played volleyball and ran a couple of errands on bike share for the annual Errandeneuring bike challenge, read a bit, and knit on my Sock Madness sock. I’ll have to pick up the pace while Rudi’s away if I want to advance, but it’s not like I have any other plans later this week, so I’m not despairing yet.
