broodings from the burrow

This weekend included:

  • Picnicking with Rudi, Shawn and Sarah at the Yards.
  • Sleeping ’til past noon on Saturday.
  • Finishing Fablehaven, my last book for the Once upon a Time reading challenge.
  • Swimming at the local pool, where they’ve added a concession stand for the first time this year. (The pool opens for weekday swims beginning tomorrow. I’m very excited.)
  • Picking the first tomato, a Stupice, from our garden. (The Green Zebras should be next.)
  • Listening to and watching the rain pour down from our safe, dry Burrow.
  • Buying lots of fruit at the farmers market this morning. (It was the first week for raspberries, gooseberries, peaches, and nectarines.)
  • Working on the two-at-a-time socks. (I’m past the gusset decreases and only have a couple more inches of stockinette to finish by classtime on Wednesday.)
  • Listening to Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince while prepping fruit for preserves.
  • Having dinner with Rudi and Shawn at a local Peruvian restaurant. (I had a mango-based drink and mushroom cebiche, and split a chocolate quinoa cake with Rudi for dessert.)

Weekending along with Pumpkin Sunrise.

you have a mighty fine tomato there! sounds like a nice weekend with friends. We had a few thunderstorms but we are still in a drought, go figure! I’ve never had peruvian food, yet. Glad you joined in the fun 🙂

So many yummy things in this list. What are gooseberries like?

@karen: I’d never had Peruvian food before last night either, but this summer’s Folklife Festival put on by the Smithsonian is focused on Peru, so I’m hopeful it won’t be my last time.

@Karen: Gooseberries are a little tart for my taste for eating out of hand, so my plan for this week’s is a fool.
