weekend planning
posted by soe 1:00 am


Just as I was opening my blog, a single clap of thunder erupted overhead. Rain is now pouring down outside, and I am glad to be inside. Plus, I’m about to head to bed, and rainfall makes such peaceful sleeping most of the time. It does make me question how the weekend weather is going to play out, though (we definitely aren’t getting a blizzard like some of you, but rain is predicted for parts of both days). If the weather cooperates, this is what I’m hoping it includes:

  • Participating in the cleanup day at the garden. I’d also like to plant the two strawberries I bought this week, pick violets, and put in some supports for my peas.
  • Checking out the cherry blossom festival along the Anacostia waterfront.
  • Listening to or watching baseball.
  • Drinking strawberry daiquiris. I have a ton of frozen strawberries in the freezer and would love to clear out a bit of space. This is a delicious way to accomplish that. (Ooh! There’s more thunder!)
  • Shopping at the farmers market. Milk and eggs are on my list.
  • Baking. My first stab at macarons did not leave enough time for setting and cooking and this batter is not fond of refrigeration, so I’ll see about take two. Failed attempts are still delicious, even if not especially correct.
  • Hitting up a library or two. I’d like to watch this overdue dvd and return it, and I finished the book that belongs to Virginia, so maybe I can make it over there to give it back, too. Also, I need to use a printer.
  • Figuring out my taxes. Yes, this has been on my to-do list for literally months. Happily, this should be the final list it appears on this year.
  • Washing my handknits.
  • Eating grilled cheese and soup. (This is one for if it’s rainy.) Homemade tomato soup is another thing in our freezer. I’ll need to buy/make bread, though.
  • Doing some tidying. I’m heading out of town next week and would like to leave the place a little less messy for Rudi and Corey.
  • Knitting. Maybe I could get through picking up the stitches at the gusset of my sock or could work some on my lightning shawl.

How about you? What’s on your weekend agenda?
