Rain and more rain
I definitely intended to post sometime this week. However, this is how it shaped up:
Sunday – a trip to the Hathaway's drive-in to watch Dark Knight
Matt wanted to get a good spot, so we got there early; in fact, we were the third car there, which is unheard for us. It rained and there was no where close to a full crowd. Good movie, though—worth seeing.
Monday – It rained. Didn’t feel like doing much of anything when I got home from work.
Tuesday – It rained. I picked more red currants anyway, and spent the evening doing Jam Session #2. Made only four jars of red currant and three of blueberry.
Wednesday – It rained. Made cupcakes for a coworker’s birthday. Spent an hour tasting rice crackers for work.
Thursday – Tried to clean up for Matt’s parents, who we were meeting on Friday in Saratoga.
Friday, Saturday, Sunday – Visited with Matt’s parents and aunt. Fri. was in Saratoga at the racetrack, Sat. in Manchester shopping, and Sun. was lunch at our place. It rained again—torrentially, with accompanying thunder and lightning. In between, I spent some time gardening (time to pull the garlic and replant lettuce) and time reading Gourmet and thinking about food, which I do regularly anyway.
This weekend it is my parent’s turn to hang out with us and do appropriate Vermont things, like buy maple syrup.
By the way, if you've been dying to check out my website, it's finally back up and running--and I promise to update soon!
