Monday already? I could have used another day — Fairly busy weekend.
Soldier Daughter, due to a series of events, is back at Ft. Riley from Iraq. I am not unhappy about that. I haven’t seen her yet — she flew in through KC and had to report to the base right away. But just knowing she is only 2 hours away gives me comfort. And she plans to come down over the weekend, so it will be nice to spend some quality time with her.
Saturday I went and played bass for a friend who was leading worship at a one day women’s retreat. I stayed until just after lunch — it was good to catch up with her and play music together again.
I picked up a few groceries and did some browsing at Pier 1. I want to buy new lamps and I checked out their lamp selection. I have narrowed it down to 2 choices and will go later in the week and make my final decision.
I made falafel salad for Sunday lunch and then made a ratatouille last night to eat over whole grain pasta. I like to take that to work for an easy lunch.
I finished packing up the fashionista’s stuff that she didn’t take with her and stored it in the basement. She always had the larger bedroom, so I decided I would move into it. I spent a good portion of yesterday afternoon cleaning, sorting, laundering, and moving furniture around. I think I am pretty satisfied with it.
Last night I vegged on the couch and watched The Land of Women on dvd and knitted on a Squidge cloth (free pattern on Ravelry). Read some more of my book, The Street of a Thousand Blossoms by Gail Tsukiyama, which I am thoroughly enjoying.
