Just A Fine Weekend
I have had so much fun this weekend. I took a Pilates class on Saturday - an intro to mat and reformer- and loved it. After the class, I ran to Whole Foods and purchased salads and good bread and came home to welcome two friends for an outside patio lunch.
A couple of weeks ago, I canned pickles and just had to take a photo of the jar when I got some out to serve. One-half gallon of beautiful little pickles and the dill is from my garden. They are very tasty.
After my guests departed, I went out for errands and as you can see, gasoline is now $3.59 per gallon. We are all excited for gas to be down to $3.59 - go figure! I am grateful; fuel has been as much as $3.89 per gallon here in the last few weeks. I know it has been over $4 a gallon in California and Washington for quite a while. On my home from errands - the sun over the Mississippi was too beautiful to not stop and look in wonder.
Yesterday evening I had the pleasure to talk with Tor and Anna in Norway - they were at the summer house and it was terrific to talk with them.
Now I am packing as I am leaving for San Antonio, Texas tomorrow evening to take care of some family business. My good friend, Missy is meeting me there - we are staying at a great spa hotel on the Riverwalk. I will return on Thursday and will post from Texas.
