Woohoo, a mellow weekend!

The first mellow non-curling weekend in a very long time.

Yesterday, Jeremy, Joel, and I went to Market House Corned Beef located 1124 Howell Street, Seattle, WA 98101-1409. Jeremy and Joel had the very tasty corned beef sandwiches, while I tried the pulled pork bbq sandwich. Both were very tasty.

From there, we headed to Feierabend. Jer and Joel drank beer, while Gravity and I sat and hung out. It was a very nice day.

Jeremy grilled up some salmon and I made some no bake peanut butter oatmeal cookies.

Today, Jeremy started his training for STP. While he was up and about, I washed a couple of loads of laundry and dishes. I also took the recycling out and sent out some bills. Jeremy managed to lock himself out of his car, so I headed out to rescue him with the extra set of keys.

I then drove home and made a batch of peanut butter chocolate chip cookies to take to the club. We watched the gold medal match of the women's worlds, Germany vs Scotland. Germany took the gold.

Its just been trying to tidy up my mess. There's still a crapload of dishes to wash, and I am tired.

Talked to Maya briefly about her trip to artfest. Apparently someone approached her, thinking she was me. The person mentioned she still has the stuffed owl that I made for trades 2 years ago. Pretty cool...

Power evenings..

I would love an evening to decompress. Just sit and veg out. Probably not going to happen until this weekend at the very least.

Since I've been home I've accomplished this list of things:

1. Cooked dinner
2. Washed 2 loads of laundry
3. Folded and put away 1.5 loads of laundry
4. Watched an episode of Numb3rs
5. Emptied out the closet in my craft room.
6. Fed the beagle her dinner and meds.

Things that still need to be done

1. Wash dishes
2. Fold and put away 1 load of laundry
3. Play with the beagle
4. Throw away some old junk

Men's Gold Medal Curling and Jill Officer

This weekend was fantastic. My husband was the best, scoring me a ticket to see the Men's Bronze Curling match. He stood in the rain for an hour, before being let into the Vancouver Curling Club....

Afterwards, we saw the Men's Gold curling match. Seeing Kevin Martin's rink play in person is just incredible.

On the way out, we managed to snag a photo with Jill Officer. Jill is very sweet and personable.

I'm feeling a little under the weather today. Mustered up some energy to try a new type of apple, called Lady Alice. Very tasty. Crunchy, sweet, and a little tart.

Sooo busy.I hope I don't get worse. We're heading out for nationals on the Thursday red eye.
