I decided to take it easy this weekend, since I’m camping in central PA next weekend. Friday night was a mini-shopping spree to replace the black work pants I ruined a few weeks ago and a casual bag to slop back and forth to KH with. Of course, it’s going to be another week before I can make it back to the shop, what with camping next weekend and another United game on Wednesday.
Speaking of United, they had a game yesterday afternoon. I do love how ESPN schedules a DCU game, midday on a Saturday in the middle of August. Oh yeah, that was comfy. It did yield my Saturday Sky picture of the day though. There were a couple of other artistic maybes but I like this one the best. I won’t say much else about this game for the time being besides it was good to see Petke even briefly; he did come clap in our general direction after the game.
Did I mention our friendly neighborhood D.C. police occifers? These two are the guys who regularly keep an eye on our section for rogue confetti – the one on the right frequently just laughs at us, while Officer John on the left isn’t quite sure what to make of things.
I did manage to knock out some quality gym time in the morning before the game and even packed a snack to take to the game so I could stay away from the oh-so-tasty, yet frequently-not-hot chicken tenders and fries. *sigh* I don’t wanna talk about it.
I really didn’t do a thing this weekend. Watched the race this afternoon while knitting nary a stitch. I finally cast on the 2nd tsunami sock, but haven’t really gotten rolling on it. Both Sisyphus and the gym sock are at points where the pattern is changing, so I have to…um…find the patterns again.
Last but not least, I did a little cooking this morning. I tried out the Breakfast Fig & Nut Cookies from Cooking Light‘s July ’06 issue. I haven’t tried them out yet; I’ll report back after breakfast tomorrow. They look tasty though – dried cranberries and figs and almonds, oh my!
