Such a beautiful weekend that allowed me to be outside, nary a mosquito or any humidity in sight.
Friday night: Chicken sausage on the grill and a French potato salad ( thought apparently the French have never heard of such a thing). Tiny potatoes sliced still warm into a bath of olive oil, lemon juice, a dash of dijon and piles of herbs from the garden, salt and pepper, eaten immediately.
Saturday night: Grilled skirt steak marinated in olive oil, lime juice, heaps of garlic, a dash of soy sauce, a bit of cumin and those herbs again, eaten with tortillas and tabbouleh.
Sunday: Walking to the farmers market with Elle, bringing back beautiful strawberry smelling strawberries and those golden beets. Stopping at the local coffee shop for a latte to go, picking up the Sunday Times and heading home where I remained for the rest of Sunday.
Pain free gardening, following the wedding on Instagram, gossiping with neighbors, freshly whipped cream for those strawberries, beet salad for dinner and a long hot bath.
Dinner: Turkey burgers on the grill and a long after dinner walk. Just pretend you have a dog is my new mantra.
I'm sorry, was I having a problem with life last week?
Zumba, the miracle cure.
P.S. the burning question, what color should I spray paint the bench? Moss green, a blue, black?
Help me out here folks.
