Friday Favorites.

friday favorites

With every passing day, summer grows closer (though it is hard to believe some days).  That means gardening season will soon be arriving too. How cute are these wooden spoon garden markers?  I ordered spoons on Amazon.  (12 for $6)  They’ll be here tomorrow.

Friday night at home calls for Chinese food.  I made this tonight and it was pretty darn delicious.  I have a whole weekend at home so tomorrow might call also for these (meatballs to freeze in small batches) and these (a small sweet treat to keep in the freezer).  I also have a lemon and an opened carton of sour cream so this.  (If I didn’t use those things in the fridge, that would just be wasteful.)

I bought a couple bird feeders to join the suet cakes in the backyard.  Watching the birds while I wash dishes is my favorite.

Favorite TV show: The Americans on FX.  (If you have Amazon Prime, you can stream the first three seasons.)  The main characters are Russian spies who live as a seemingly normal American family in the 1980s.  It’s a bit slow at times but the premise as a whole keeps me engaged and watching more.

So The Boyfriend is gone for the weekend.  (At a pinball convention.  Of course.)  In preparation for a whole weekend at home, I got movies.  (Three that The Boyfriend would never want to watch willingly.)  I got groceries.  I got wine.  (My favorite: Francis Coppola Claret.) I got projects.  (Oh, boy, do I have projects.  Thread spool garlandMagazine clipping organization.  Quilts.  Embroidery hook thread holder.  The spoons mentioned above.) I got four loads of laundry already done, and my pressure-cooked eggs and oatmeal in the fridge for the upcoming week.  Sure, I miss The Boyfriend when he’s gone geeking out with other pinball enthusiasts, but by golly gee, I get a lot done.

That’s all I got.  Okay.  Bye.
