My goals for today are simple - try to get the magic marker off my belly where the doctor put his initials to insure he cut into the correct side of my body.
Goal for the week - finish my Gathered Knot pullover.
Ah, the simple things . . .
Surgery went really well, and I'm now home and recuperating. Every body has been so kind and helpful and I'm grateful to have such a great group of friends and family!
I'm off work this week, so plenty of time to recuperate, read, knit and be insanely bored.
Thanks to everyone for their kind thoughts and deeds!
Friday night I hooked up with LA and my neighbor to attend a wine tasting and show and tell at our local yarn shop. After that, dinner at a great fish place and a bit more wine.
Thanks to the hot tip from LA, I dvr'd Letterman all last week because U2 was on every night. I don't get to see Letterman too often, but I did enjoy it, although the dvr would cut off in the middle of U2's song every night. . . . sigh . . . not sure if I'm sold on their new album yet.
I found a new, gritty vampire series - the Joe Pitt Vampire books by Charlie Huston. The story is that Pitt caught the virus from a strange man in the bathroom at CBGBs in NYC in the '70s, and has been part of the vampire sub-culture since then. In the books, Manhattan is divided into various vampire territories, controlled by rival vampire gangs/groups. Pitt is an independent walking the line trying to keep on the right side of the rival groups, while keeping himself "alive."
Found a new favorite recipe - zucchini cakes with parmesan chees and diavolo sauce - yummy!
One advantage of sharing coconut shrimp with Sam is that the tails don't go to waste.
Saturday we took off and ran some errands.
We went to Petco for a new tank for Splish, (now 12), a bead store for some strings of pearls to use in jewelry making, and the grocery store.
Having been lazy yesterday, today we headed out early for a five mile walk, and since it was in the high '70s today, we stopped a couple of times to rest in the shade.
When we got home from our walk, I pumped up the bike tires, loaded Sam (for the first time), into the basket on the Jessica Fletcher, and we went for a bike ride.It was a tad awkward loading her in and out of the basket, but Sam did great! I lined it with a towel, and she didn't stress and was a brave buckaroo, kicking back and checking out everyone heading down to the beach for the day. Maybe next week we'll ride down to dog beach.
Took it easy this afternoon, and did a bit of shopping online. I love all the handmade things you can get on etsy.com - today I bought 2 hand dyed scarves for 10 dollars each from an artist in Australia. Shipping will be 5 dollars for both, but it's still a helluva deal.
How was your weekend?
