the weekend

My weekend started 4 hours early on Friday. I took a half day in order to get some stuff done. Mainly, I was concerned about planting garlic in my garden. The weekend was calling for rain (though it didn't end up raining today. go figure). So, I went outside on Friday and worked in the garden for a bit. Prior to that, I put on a big old pot of chicken soup for supper. Mmm. I did some other things around the house that evening, but nothing worth reporting.

Saturday morning, I went to a pierogi-making class at the Bottleworks. It was fun, but I can't say I really learned anything (as I have made pierogies on my own in the past). In the class, we made the dough and assembled the pierogies, but we had to cook them ourselves (at home). I packed up the cooked pierogies and went to the office where Brian and I shared them for lunch. He was working on the kitchen ceiling all day. Looks great! I did some more painting--kitchen trim. Last night was kind of a blur, but I know I did some stuff.

Today was pretty productive, too. After brunch I went outside and wrapped up some things (namely, mulching the garlic; harvesting the broccoli rabe; and doing some general clean-up in the yard). After that, I did my usual afternoon "office management" work and then we headed to the office to do more work. Brian wrapped up a few loose ends and I painted some more (the kitchen trim is finally done!). This evening Jake and I got all of the treat bags ready for Halloween and I did some housework (there's no shortage of that in this house).

It was a pretty good weekend, but I didn't get as much done as I'd hoped (I never do). I guess I'll take tomorrow evening to get caught up.
