Week at a Glance
We are patiently waiting to hear of Al’s Surgery date. We had hoped to hear last week but hopefully this week we will hear. His surgeon is on vacation until the end of this week.
I continue to keep busy knitting, doing short rides on the bike and last Thursday spent a nice day with my eldest daughter, having breakfast out at Pan Chancho, browsing the downtown Farmers Market and coming home here and we made fresh spring rolls. Yesterday a friend and I went to the new Sunday Farmers Market in my neighborhood, its having a trial this season and I hope it is a success so I go every Sunday to support it. One vendor sells fresh greens with edible flowers and pea shoots which are so yummy.
I brought my old (circa 1978) Kenmore sewing machine home from Kiley’s so I hope to get a few projects done. I want to make a selection of cloth napkins and I’ve ordered a vintage 1972 Simplicity pattern for a halter top. So I’m hoping to fabricate a few of those and be ready for our next heat wave.
We have organized a wee View & Chew for this Friday night for a small group of friends who have not yet seen our new digs. So I’ll be busy this week planning and making my finger foods for that.
Al and I have become fans of Downton Abbey and that has been our evening entertainment. Once it is over Al wants to start a marathon of his new favourite show.....Top Gear.
