St. Patrick's Day Cocoa

I did not get to the mopping, nor to the movies, this weekend. But it was a really nice one, nonetheless.

I did the library shuffle, trading materials I’d previously borrowed for new ones at two branches.

I made it to the French pastry shop where the Hawaiian-style malasada (Portuguese doughnuts) will be popping up on weekends and brought home four for us to sample — jam-filled, lemon curd-filled, ube- (purple yam) glazed with coconut, and pandan- (screwpine) cream-filled. We were excited to finally get to try them.

Winter Gardening, Week 3

I stopped at the garden and turned soil in another section of my plot and planted seeds for lettuce and other greens.

I did some grocery shopping, drank tea at a cafe, and blocked my shawl (which requires going into the office after hours).

Shawl Blocking

We watched Despicable Me 3, which was cute, but not as good as the original.

Rudi had his first weekend day off since December, which was awesome. We went to the farmers market and then headed out to Savage, Maryland, where there was a local yarn market going on. It’s been a few years since I’ve been able to go, and I came home with a few skeins of yarn to mark the occasion, including a skein of blue to make a cherry blossom hat. (Now I just need to hit the bead store to buy the beads I’ll need.)

All in all a busy, but relaxing weekend! How was yours?

Well, it sounds like a perfect weekend to me. We love doing the farmers market on weekends, splurging on tasty pastries and veggies.
