phase 1 weekend plans
posted by soe 1:28 am

D.C. began loosening restrictions today, which includes things like opening parks, but not playgrounds; letting restaurants seat people at a distance outside, but not in; and asking people to observe a “stay at home lite” life.

As such, Rudi and I took a drive uptown for takeout pizza and a quick trip to the grocery store this evening, which is pretty much what we’ve done every third Friday since mid-April.

I have to spend some time working this weekend, but here’s what else I’m hoping to do:

  • Read in the park.
  • Take more beer to the garden slugs. They are hard partiers, despite knowing the consequences. Harvest things while I’m there and consider planting beans.
  • Pull together some library materials to take back later this week, since branch libraries are slowly going to allow curbside pickup.
  • Watch the rocket launch.
  • Really put winter away, since I didn’t follow through on that last weekend and since this week highlighted the need for tshirts over sweaters.
  • Make crackers. Apparently that’s one of the things I can do with my sourdough.
  • Bike down to Constitution Garden to see the ducklings.
  • Drink daiquiris.
  • Do laundry. I should probably launder the reusable bags we have that can be washed. Plus I need cleans masks again.
  • Get a takeaway drink from one of the local restaurants that have been shuttered for months.

What are you hoping to do this final weekend of May?

WATCHED THE launch. Kind of. CNN was late and the rocket was in the air while they counted down from 10….that was weird.

And IM having a frozen daiquiri.. hmmmmmmmm

I hope you’re having a great weekend and that you’ve crossed a bunch of things off your list.

I haven’t quite put winter away yet either. There might even be some lingering bits of Christmas around. But I’ve been working hard on organizing my office, and maybe by the end of the weekend I’ll have an officially neat and orderly room. That would be something!
