low-key weekend plans
posted by soe 1:15 am

I don’t have a lot planned for the weekend, which is good because I’m quite behind in my blogging and having Sunday free might enable me to catch up, right?

Saturday afternoon I’m going apple picking with fellow alumni from my alma maters and ten other small New England colleges. I’m also hoping to pick some raspberries and maybe a pumpkin. Saturday night, I have dinner plans with friends, which is always exciting.

Sunday has nothing on the calendar other than the farmers’ market (to supplement the orchard’s takings). I’m thinking I’ll be using it to finish the Red Scarf that’s due on Monday and to cook up some of tomorrow’s pickings. Plus maybe I’ll get a bike ride in during the nice, cool weather.

Relaxing is important because things at work will be busy this week. Monday afternoon is my company picnic and Wednesday I leave for Detroit for a three-day work trip. (BTW, does anyone have any recommendations for restaurants/sightseeing/shopping to do in downtown Detroit in the evening?) This means I only have a day-and-a-half of actual work-time and will require lots of focus and staying on task. Plus I have to train someone to work on the project I left so she can get started in earnest on it.


Let’s think about all those nice apples instead. Apple-carrot soup. Apple crisp. Apple cake. Baked apples. Anyone have a fantastic apple recipe they love they want to share?

Well, Rudi’s bread is done and I’m feeling a little tired, so I think it might be time to hit the hay. After all, I need to get up early tomorrow to start enjoying my relaxing weekend, right?
