I could have used a bit more time this week. I feel like I maybe didn’t get enough done that I wanted to. With gearing up for the wedding on Whidbey Island this weekend, work and post-work activities it was a fun week but a blur.
Luckily, I did find a dress while shopping around downtown on Monday night. I started stressing a little bit when the first 90 minutes came up with ZERO prospects. Once I had the dress I could relax a bit. I wanted to get my nails done, but again time became an issue and I will just be doing them myself this weekend.
But Bryan and I had a wonderful date night on Tuesday. We met in Lower Queen Anne for some dinner and beer first. I had some great fish tacos (getting me ready for L.A.) and Bryan had a juicy burger and tots and then we made our way over to the Seattle Rep for the pay-what-you-can performance of A Raisin in the Sun. The play definitely got going after the first intermission and after 3 hours of performance with two intermissions (we weren’t prepared for the length) we were in love with the play. Great acting, great plot, and great messages throughout…and we even got to leave happy. Which we did, albeit late, getting home around 11 pm.
Wednesday and Thursday night were volunteer nights for me. I first helped out with a Farmer’s Market: Spring(?!?) class at Hipcooks which was a truly delicious class and a great group of students. I could have eaten gallons of the spring pea and mint soup in all honesty but I saved room for the goat cheese, prosciutto and asparagus chicken roulades with lobster mushroom sauce, strawberry balsamic raddichio salad, and strawberry basil and thyme shortcakes (which I shared with Bryan once home) because I mean, they were all amazing!
Thursday night was a great and busy night at FareStart with the crew from Lark and Bitter/Raw. They served up a delish four course dinner to a full house so of course it was a late one for us. We had a delicious antipasto plate first, followed by a kale and roasted vegetable salad, chicken and butternut squash tagine with couscous and honey yogurt, and a bomb.comb chocolate and marshmallow tart.
Finishing up packing (and picking out my outfits) to leave for Whidbey early this AM. I’m working remotely from the cozy Langley Library overlooking the sound…I ain’t complaining.
