Wahoo, weekend!

Another wonderful weekend, all the better with beautiful autumn weather – bright sunshine, gentle breezes, mild temperatures.

Friday evening: celebrating three continuous weeks of mostly-compliant progress on healthier choices for diet, exercise, rest, and self-care; meeting Dad and Dick for supper at Panera Bread (still love the yummy autumn squash soup they serve); attending the public lecture on “Successes and Failures in Engineering” at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory ~ and stretching some new suspension bridges (aka, neural pathways) in my brain.

Saturday morning: eating a hearty breakfast with Ron, while FINALLY watching the season premiere of “Grimm.”

14-10-25 leek and potato soupSaturday afternoon: running a few errands; laundering “magic” clothes for my favorite illusionist; and making my own recipe for leek and potato soup. Chopped baked potatoes, leeks, frozen corn, and 2% milk, topped with light sour cream, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, dill weed, and salt/pepper to taste. Yummy ~ tastes like fall!

Magic and Malarky at Steel BeamSaturday evening: enjoying dinner with Dad and Ron, featuring homemade leek and potato soup, Ritz “everything” crackers, apple slices, and cucumber slices; spending time with Dad and Niki watching a little of the World Series (Kansas City at San Francisco); seeing a fun and fabulous magic event at the Steel Beam Theatre. What a treat to watch, hear, and participate in the antics of these three talented illusionists: Arman Sangalang, Scott Piner, and Ron Clayton. Hope to see this trio performing together again soon!

Sunday: sleeping a little late (ahhhhhhhh!); treating ourselves to breakfast at Sweet Berry Café, where the portions are hearty enough to take home leftovers for a second meal; hanging out at home for a few chores, laundry, photo-editing, and reading. Mowing and treating the grass for winter might just wait until another day.
