Most of the day Saturday was consumed with cleaning out the storage in the basement and gathering items for a garage sale we are going to have with friends in Sacramento next month.
I found a lot of stuff I had not seen in a long time. It was sort of fun. I wish I could have spent more time down there - there is no light so I have to wear a headlamp and since I have bad allergies, I have to wear a mask as well. As you can imagine, my getup was pretty impressive. I don't know how Tim kept his hands off of me. I have a nice pile of things to sell going in my hallway now and I am excited to unearth more as I clean my place out in search of things to get rid of.
Sunday morning I got up and made waffles - I wrote my own recipe and I have to say, they were pretty darn good. The recipe made 6 so I have two in the freezer for another day - I think we may heat them up and make hot fudge sundaes over them later this week - yummm! I took my time easing into the day which was a nice change as apposed to getting out the door like a shot gun as I do during the week. I went to Debbie's house in the afternoon to hang out and craft while we watched a movie - my favorite afternoon of them all. So, we watched Chicken Run and I worked on embroidery while Debbie knit. It was nice to get out of the city for a break and hang out in an actual house without loud neighbors upstairs walking around in their loud shoes (big problem, growing bigger each day). At about 5:30 I headed back to the city and was craving pesto so I made a pasta dish with orecchiette pasta, pesto, artichoke hearts, asparagus and sweet peas topped with toasted pine nuts and freshly grated Parmesan. For dessert, a blast from the past....Purple Cows! Tim had never had one, so I had to make them.
All in all, it was a very nice weekend. Got a lot of stuff done that I have been thinking about for a while, which was nice.
Have a great week!
I will try to update more often this week.
