The weekend, briefly

Why is it that three days weekends never seem long enough? The rain has finally moved in so we spent most of our time inside, strategizing about the upcoming move (this is where living with an architect comes in handy - we have a scale plan of our new place and we can just move the furniture around to see where it fits).

We ate quesadillas with as much Tapatio as possible.

I played around with yarn (because it's been way too long since I've picked up my crochet hooks).

We had friends over for homemade pasta.

And watched the rain come down and down and down.

  4. You are handling the move with grace! Thanks for having us over, we had so so so much fun. BTW, you need to tell your readers the story of knitting in a college lecture someday. Classic Rachel. I'm off to the style lab :)

  10. just wanted to thank you for the Spot of Bother book recommendation - i flew through it this weekend. if you like books about complex family dynamics, i think you would like Her Fearful Symmetry, Audrey Niffenegger's new book.
