Saturday, the opera, Otello. Marvellous! My first time seeing this opera (last performed by VOA in the early 1980s -- my parents probably saw that), and I hope it won't be the last.
Pater and I cycled 7 or 8 kilometers, a short ride but one we used to justify chowing down at Bandidas Taqueria, also on Commercial Drive. I had a breakfast salad -- Something like a huevos rancheros, actually, except with a whole lot more fresh veggies. Might try this at home now -- yummy!
And Sunday afternoon, a Sashiko class
with my daughter
I know! She's clever like that. . .
Now, lest you think that my day was done after that three-hour Sashiko class, let me tell you . . . Our other local family was busy all weekend moving into their brand new condo, and The Resident Cook here invited them for his Moroccan Chicken. Obviously, this dinner was another example of Busy being Good Fun and Very Satisfying. . . .
But all that satisfaction doesn't preclude this Nana from being relieved that it's a Monday, and everyone's back to their regular schedules, and I have my whole home to myself (Pater's off to meetings all week long).
So I'm off now to make some lists and get some non-blog writing done. How's the week starting up for you? And was yours a quiet or a busy or a Goldilocks-just-right weekend? (And did anyone manage to fit in some of Little-Girl's-Style Dancing?
