That’s my fun day – la la la la la. We finally got some rain over the weekend — and lots of sticky humidity. But the rain was definitely a blessing.
This is the only food photo I have from the weekend. My oven is on the fritz and I am waiting for either a new element or a new appliance. And of course since I don’t have an oven to use, I want to bake. Go figure. We always want what we can’t have.
The place I usually buy my Lebanese groceries from is currently closed, so I went to my first alternate location on Saturday morning. I picked up some chickpeas, small containers of hummus and laban, a carton of feta, and several small eggplants. I also stopped by a truck selling produce by the side of the road and purchased tomatoes, zucchini, and cantaloupe. I intended to go out to the farm market, but remembered that it was “tomato day” and figured it would be too crowded — and later I heard from a friend that it was, so it was just as well I came across the lone seller by the side of the road. I went to a local ceramics supply shop and picked up a carving tool, a flexible rib and a glaze stamp. Returned library books I am finished with.
The rest of the weekend I just puttered around. I made a ratatouille. I cut out the apron for the fashionista — finally! Yesterday I set up the sewing machine and listened to several podcasts while sewing — the apron is nearly done. One evening of sewing and it will be finished. I finished knitting a brown facecloth. Played with the pug. Not much going on at the moment.
