Good Weekend

Attended a birthday party in downtown Portsmouth with a truly delicious cake. Used the opportunity to see how my phone camera does outdoors.

Pretty good, I'd say. (That's the birthday girl next to the Dan.)

This weekend there was no time for my usual cook all day Saturday/freeze all day Sunday routine, but last night I threw together a batch of macaroni and cheese, had half for dinner and froze the other half for later in the week.

Today we had lunch with Dan’s parents and shopped for curtains. We are on a quest to replace all the curtains in the apartment – it’s been 4 years and we feel there’s really no excuse for going on without curtains that match and look nice (our current curtains do neither of these things). We didn’t find any but we have a better idea of what we’re looking for now, at least. On the advice of my mother-in-law, who appears to have owned a good amount of curtains in her day – I am plunging into the depths of the JC Penney catalog keeping an eye out for the magic words: pinch pleats.

I’ve past the gusset decreases on the first Crusoe but I fear I decreased a bit too much. This is just a squidge tight on my foot,  and the intended recipient’s foot is just a squidge bigger than mine, so there shall be some ripping in the coming days. Sure is pretty, though.
