Closing down another weekend

November 17, 2013

Leaf and candle reflections
I had some lofty goals for this weekend, things like laundry, cleaning the apartment, working on a real (as in thought out and maybe even edited) blog post, but alas very few of those things happened. Instead I did things like go to Costco with Alex and purchase a membership (and lots of delicious produce – I like the goal of eating two heads of lettuce this week!) and go to a lovely farewell potluck on Saturday night which included some much needed friend time. Speaking of delicious food, I also got to enjoy a delicious salmon meal at Alex’s church that was celebrating the end of their successful fall pledge drive. Mmmmmm Norwegian Lutherans know how to BBQ a salmon!

Those were some of the weekend highlights, but the weekend also included a nagging patch of allergies which included me feeling just kind of out of sorts for much of the days and taking a 2 hour nap this afternoon! Apparently my new attempt at allergy medicine (generic brand from Costco = cheap drugs!) kind of fogs me up a bit, so I think I will need to try to adjust to taking it in the evening and not the mornings. Also I spent a fair amount of time this weekend working on the secret project. Which in reality isn’t that secret, just something I don’t want to post about. So if you are interested, feel free to email me. But let’s just say it is exciting, kind of terrifying and also all about writing and revising things I don’t like to work on. However, progress was made and if all goes as planned, I should be completed by tomorrow evening. With that, I am off to refill my tea, work a bit more and then get off to bed.
