Ugh. I don’t even want to think about this being Monday. Haven’t had my coffee yet. Therefore, I will write about the lovely weekend I had…without homework!
Cleaned my house until it sparkled, which is a pleasure for me. (Do you know anyone else who actually LIKES to clean house?!) I harvested some figs….so now, I have more figs….and I prepared a nice meal for friends.
We had scallion pancakes, miso soup, a Japanese salad and stuffed vegetable dumplings. (steamed). The food was good, the conversation was stimulating, and the music that followed was even better! It was a great evening. Before it was all over, Sarah dropped Ingrid off for her sleepover, which is always delightful.
Sunday morning, we had a beautiful morning together…a slow breakfast, played a game, read some books and went for a puppy walk with her friend, “Piggy”. (Her sleep/snuggle toy.)
Very nice. Her parents stopped by to pick her up and I spent a good deal of the day cooking. Trying to come up with a recipe for lentil loaf like the kind we had back in the 70’s, but I have yet to perfect it. Mine was good…but not great. I did concoct a very nice mushroom sauce, however. Still working on it. Overall, had a very good day. Stopped by to see a couple of friends, had a laugh or two….and now…well….it’s Monday.
This week promises to be killer, in terms of school work. 3 papers and 2 discussion questions in one class, a data analysis, a paper and learning to do advanced ANOVA research designs…factorial, repeated measures, ANCOVA, in the other class….so I’d better knock down some coffee, take puppy for a walk and get crackin’.
I hope all of you have a glorious week! xoxo
