Happy Monday everyone!
I hope your weekend was good and that you are refreshed and energized to tackle the week!
We had an abrupt return to winter on Saturday and I am a bit concerned for all the things that are now growing in my yard…
- Forsythia are about to bloom
- Tarragon, mint, chives, and thyme are growing like mad
- The lilac bush has oodles of leaf buds on it (however, I do not see any flower buds yet…)
- The Spiraea in the front yard is filled with a beautiful green haze of new leaves
- And, I have a plethora of perennials coming up all over
So, the snow and bitter winds on Sunday were especially unwelcome.
Despite the wild weather – it was a good weekend!
There was another “huddle” with my fellow resister’s which has become something I am really looking forward to. The bit of time in camaraderie with like-minded souls is definitely a boost!
I discovered when I was almost done with the first part of the chart on sock one that I somehow skipped 12 rows. So… riiiiiiiip! I am glad I discovered this before getting much further – AND before beginning sock two. I am back on track with a post it™ to help me with my obvious confusion! However, both socks being done before the final clue comes out on Wednesday is highly unlikely.
We also found some nice looking Romanesco at Whole Paycheck (although they were not insanely expensive) and made my favorite salad, Romanesco alla Diavola, with it to accompany pasta with meatballs for dinner last night. It was so good!
We watched some of the Oscars, but being the lively, stay-up-late crew that we are we did not last until the end. (Actually, it was far from the end, and as such we missed all the uproar over the best picture!!) Now, I am waiting for the same thing to happen with our last general election…
And that brings us to Monday – a hit the ground running morning here. How about you?
