Weekending

It feels like we are finally settled into our new apartment.  There are a couple boxes that are not unpacked, but we'll get to them soon enough.  Last week we cleared out one storage unit and transferred another one closer to our new place.  We have moved the antique secretary my in-laws gave to us in the dining area, and now we need to find a table and set of chairs so we can eat dinner like grown ups!  We have visited a couple stores, but need to keep looking, perhaps after the 4th of July holiday we'll settle on something.  The weekend was not all work and no play, and I enjoyed getting together with my Dixie Star friends at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel-we hang out in the lobby doing paper piecing-our current project is the Hexagon-Blocks on the Go-Quilts on the Grow by Katja Marek, and we are all using Joyce's invention the lap app.  So much fun getting caught up with Joyce and Brenda, but wish Kathy would have been able to join us.  We ate lunch at a restaurant attached to the hotel, and I had a wonderful Caesar salad with white anchovies-so delicious and not what I expected.
 There was some finishing, project pages are updated-a pair of socks and 2 sweaters.  I also got my knitting tote organized, and working towards getting the rest of the WIPs completed before September-that's my goal.  I've already started thinking about what I'll knit this fall from stash yarn.
 Sunday was a bike ride-I LOVE the bike lanes in our new 'hood.  I rode 11 miles in about an hour, but they were good vigorous miles. I rode both on the road and in the park nearby.  It's so awesome to be able to start a bike ride from home, and not driving to a place to begin the bike ride.  Looking forward to more weekend rides.
There was lots of cooking to get ready for the work week. Roasted lots of vegges, did some chopping, and other prepping.  The zucchini to the back was given to Joyce, and the one in the front became zucchini fritters, and was roasted with onion, garlic, and carrots.  By the end of the day the cherries were pitted, the tomatoes roasted, and the pepper sliced.
There was also some frogging-ugh-just couldn't get Equinox to work for me-maybe I'll try it another time.
Hope your weekend was not all work and no play.

  1. I'm impressed you got outside with the heat... and glad to hear you're getting settled. Zucchini fritters should've been on my summer bucket list - I love them, but it's been years since I had them.
