A Weekend 10

For this Tuesday, a prompt to share 10 things from my long weekend…

Old Glory

Saturday morning started with a road trip the Newark airport to complete the process for my Global Entry access…

…On the way home, I stopped at a new to me organic farm stand and picked up some beautiful things…and then stopped to snag a picture of this huge flag at an equipment rental…and stopped at a fave produce stand for more local goodies…

…while watching Olympic trials, I knit on dishcloths from the red/white/blue skein…

…I finished up one read (meh) and started on a book (fittingly, a presidential biography) from under the Christmas tree…

…I was on a mission to go through the “stuff” in my spare room which yielded some delightful finds…and also the joy of getting rid of lots of stuff via donation/trash/shred piles…

…I readied 8 large totes of “no joy” stuff for Tuesday morning GreenDrop pick-up…

…while sorting, I streamed and enjoyed TURN: Washington’s Spies – which seemed appropriate for this holiday weekend…

…I roasted radishes for the first time – delicious when paired with roasted onions, green beans & a farm fresh ham steak…and had tasty meals from my farm stand finds…

…I baked a delicious Blueberry-Rhubarb Cobbler because the 4th calls for red, white & blue desserts…

…I closed out the weekend watching A Capitol Fourth on PBS as is family tradition…love their 1812 Overture and Stars & Stripes Forever, each year…

Before I knew it, the long weekend was over and it was time to ready for another busy week ahead. This weekend was a good combo of tackling the to-do list and also getting some much needed relaxation.

What did your weekend hold? 

Linking up with Carole for Ten on Tuesday

  1. Roasted radishes! Wait, what?? How did I not know about this! Also, dish cloths have been showing up recently in many blogs, hmmmm – a sign from the knitting gods?

    Fantastic post! Thank you for sharing!

  2. You just reminded me that I need to gather containers of No Joy items and dispose of them. Sounds like you had a real nice weekend.

  3. I’ve never roasted radishes but they do sound interesting and something I will have to try. Along with blueberry-rhubarb cobbler – delicious!

  4. You’re the second person to mention Turn in the past week–I definitely need to check it out.
