Counting down the hours until the work week is over! This evening is the last Music Theater performance for the summer. My DD has agreed to attend with me. We are seeing Thoroughly Modern Millie. Every show I have seen this summer has been very good, so I’m sure this one will be as well.
I have finished several BallBand dishcloths in the past week. I am on the last section of the multicolor rib scarf and should be done with it over the weekend. I have a dvd of Rent to watch, so it should be easy to finish the scarf. I started the back of the Devan sweater, which is my lunchtime knitting project, but I got too involved in reading this week to knit much.
I finished Terrorist by John Updike and a book by Yasmina Khadra called The Attack. Both were interesting reads, but I preferred The Attack. The Attack is set in Israel and is about a surgeon of Arab origin who is an Israeli citizen who finds out that his wife was a suicide bomber.
My DD did not get the law firm job she applied for, but she did get a job at a local Christian book and gift store. I think she will enjoy working there.
Last night I had a three hour praise team practice. I was pretty tired when I got home. So many people are on vacation or gone for the summer — so I am playing bass for two services this Sunday. But I need the experience — need to get better at those walking bass lines!
I did get my yard work done last Saturday — and used muscles I had forgotten about — I was moving a bit slowly the next couple of days. It took me three hours to get it all done. Then I came inside and cleaned the basement utility room — or should I say cleared — my DD came home from Colorado and asked where all the stuff was!
My tomatoes are lovely! The green beans are finished. The other evening I made cheese tortellini pasta with sage butter sauce — using fresh sage from my herb garden. Heavenly! One of the ladies from the office had an abundance of butternut squash — I chose one from the bag and I think I may roast it with olive oil and fresh sage. I made a salad this week of fresh mozzarella, oregano leaves, basil leaves, slices of homegrown tomatoes and drizzled olive oil over it. I need to start picking herbs and getting them ready to freeze.
