I'm ready for the weekend.
No big plans set in stone yet, but here's what I'm hoping for:
A movie night with fun friends. the big question - do we see Mother, the psychological thriller showing at the boutique theater by the university, or do we go and scare ourselves silly with The Shining, at a theater where we can drink beer and eat pizza in the theater?
on saturday, i want to go on a bike ride (the bike doctor said it was okay to ride!) and i love how a long ride makes me feel totally satisfied and tired. i know i'll be tuckered out and sore early, since its one of the first rides of the season for me.
after that, i hope to play in my kitchen and attempt my first roast chicken. I got a new (to me) cookbook the other day, Tyler Florence Dinner at My Place and it has a yummy looking recipe for Roast Chicken with Wilted Lettuce and Peas. Before playing in said kitchen, I need to get over and grab some veggies at the Farmer's Market... I just couldn't bring myself to buy them at the store.
Sunday afternoon, there's a benefit concert over at the Tractor Tavern, a great venue in Ballard. The Blackberry Bushes String Band is playing, and I do love me some bluegrass. They have lyrics like 'hold back time, start the day with kisses and end it with wine,' which I think it a life-philosophy to which I can subscribe. Also, I'm hoping a good friend of mine will come and bring her new boy, who I have not gotten to spend nearly enough time with...
Doesn't it seem like the weekend comes just when you cannot. wait. another. day.
See you all on monday!
