triskellian: (spinning)
[personal profile] triskellian
...One which ends with a load of new handspun yarn, a swimsuit and a towel, all hanging on a clothes airer to dry :-)

In between the spinning and the swimming, I went to a mini-festival at the allotments round the corner, where I bought vegetables and books, and saw birds of prey; did a load of sock- and jumper-knitting; ate sweet and sour prawns with strawberries (strange, but not un-nice) at [ profile] metame's birthday meal; walked along the river with [ profile] smiorgan; saw two episodes of season 2 of The Wire; read half of Swallows and Amazons; cooked yummy stuff-I-found-in-the-fridge risotto, and still felt like I had a decent amount of time at home doing nothing in particular.

(Next weekend, being the Reading festival, will be rather more action-packed and rather less restful ;-)

ohhhh, that DOES sound and look like a lovely weekend - nothing more satisfying than doing lots of good stuff and still feeling that there is spare time.

Strange how some weekends it's possible to be rushed and yet achieve nothing either useful or fun whilst other weekends (see above) are the exact opposite.

And if you can put pineapple in sweet and sour sauce, why not strawberries? It's no weirder than the balsamic-vinegar-on-strawberries thing, which I'm pretty sure you introduced me to.

Black pepper goes well with strawberries too... they're promiscuous little false fruits!

And aside from the fascination with wool-based activities, that sounds like an almost perfect weekend.
