Weekend Recap

I just love the weekend with my heart and soul. This one was no exception. There was some delicious eating, general relaxation, a cute new haircut (a new year needs new hair), working on the office, playing in the yard, and practicing with my lovely little camera.

The verdict is in: Hugh is my most cooperative subject, followed in distant second by Henry. Fletcher basically does the opposite of whatever I want him to do. Good thing they're all cute:

Oh, and fifty-five degrees and sunny? Where have you been all my life? I wanted to put on a sundress and drink a Pimm's Cup on the porch. Instead I uncovered all my plants, hauled them out into the sun, and refilled my bird feeders. I'll just call it early Spring cleaning.

I'm mainly here to tell you about some necessary eating. Since I'm doing a vegetarian meal plan this week, I decided to make Hugh's favorite, decidedly non-vegetarian dinner on Saturday night. Brace yourself for this lowbrow glory: Chili Dogs. Check back tomorrow for the recipe.

How was your weekend, friends?

Post Script: For all its goodness, there were some downs this weekend. Mainly that I'm the clumsiest human being alive. Like, sometimes I am standing still and I just fall over. On Saturday I was walking out of the office and somehow my foot got tangled in the laptop cord. I ate it. Like, fell so hard on my leg that I thought it was broken. Instead, I just have a very swollen and purple knee, a hip that's so sore I can't sleep on it, and a sprained big toe. Fortunately, my husband is basically a doctor, and he thinks I'm going to live.

On Sunday, I was carrying my full twelve ounce mug of coffee and it slipped out of my hand. It landed on the floor and coffee shot up like a geyser. All over my face, the floor, the walls, my nightstand, my books. You name, it was covered. Did I mention that I put about five tablespoons of sugar and a quarter cup of half-and-half in my coffee? I was really excited to spend forty-five minutes cleaning that stickiness up.


  1. I totally get it. I spilled a huge vat of tomato soup on the floor last week. It looked like I was throwing it around like an ape. I'm still finding it everywhere....

  2. Awesome pictures! Stop falling down.
