Dry for a Change

The weekend was finally dry for a change — and it was very nice.  I was actually able to get out quite a bit.

Friday evening I just vegged out.  I cooked whole grain rotini and topped it with diced tomatoes and a couple of spoonfuls of pesto sauce, then topped it with grated pecorino romano.  Saturday morning I went and got a haircut — shorter for the summer.  I can spike it a bit on top and the back if I choose.  Then I worked around the house a bit.  Went to a very sweet wedding Saturday afternoon — a young couple at my church got married.  The groom was a vocalist on my praise team and invited me.  It was a lovely wedding — and who can resist wedding cake?  Certainly not me.

Yesterday evening I got out on my bicycle for a short ride.  Trying to get back into shape.  I have been going to the park to walk, but don’t get over there as often as I would like, so I thought I would try bicycling around the neighborhood.  Cleaned up the bike, aired up the tires and off I went.  I went again this afternoon, too.  Last night I watched an interesting little film — Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont.  Joan Plowright was the main character.  I love British films.

This afternoon I got back out on my bike and then worked on weeding my front garden areas and moved several cannas to a different spot.  I didn’t finish the weeding, but will do a little each evening until I get caught up — as long as it stays fairly dry, anyway.

Khalid Hosseini, the author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, is coming here for a reading at the end of June.  I phoned my mother and she wants to go, so she will get the tickets this week.  I enjoyed The Kite Runner and I reserved his new book at the library.  Hopefully I will get to read it before he comes here.

I am nearly finished with A Year in the World by Frances Mayes.  It makes me want to travel.  PBS is showing Visions of Sicily this week.  I lived there for 2.5 years back in the late 70s — I will have to watch it to see if I recognize anything. 

This week I managed to finish two new dishcloths for my kitchen — in a lemon-lime colorway.  I added some beads to the “yarn” I am making for Bauble.  I am nearly half done making the “yarn.”  This week I want to finish the second sleeve on Ryan’s sweater and another of the cotton towels I am knitting for my dining chair covers.  If I get one of those done, it will be a good thing.
