Lots of things going on, and all nice ones. I realized I was really really tired Friday afternoon, and ended up taking a nap tho when it's 2 hrs that's beyond a nap! It felt good even tho I missed my Artist Way group in Baltimore, but I did take a pic to show I'm still working on my Silliness.
Saturday a good friend who is a hvac man came over and finished doing the ductwork that was left undone during the renovation. Our original hvac man got into a huff when he found out he needed a permit in the city of Annapolis. That's how it's done here, hon! This isn't Baltimore! Mike had also come a week earlier and helped clean the cellar out so he could get the duct work in. Thanks soooo much!! A check we were glad to write!
Then a chance to go out with friends for dinner here in Annapolis. Guess which two were out in the garden in the afternoon? Yep, those two red faces on the right. On the drive back to our house, I had a chance to ride in the Porsche. Made me think about the one I used to have!
Sunday am...a breakfast I've been meaning to make for a while. Unfortunately, Dick had already eaten when I got around to making the eggs in salsa.
The eggs are actually poached in the salsa.
Then some time enjoying the garden - makes the hard work somewhat worthwhile. ;-)
Finally dinner of pasta with gruyere sauce (upscale mac and cheese), grilled salmon and roasted asparagus. It was so nice to have the new crop of herbs for the salmon marinade - chives and lemon thyme. A really fresh taste.
Uhmmmmmm. Very good and all gone!
What tops a good weekend more than a new book? Thanks to ??? from the This is ... meme for the recommendation.
Too much history behind me, and I guessed the location of the fence/story right away, but it's a very good book, poignant. Try it! If it was your blog on which I saw this recommendation, tell me and I'll give you credit. ;-)
