I played hooky last night. John and I spent the evening last night at one of these:
For his birthday, I had bought John tickets to the Philadelphia Orchestra, which spends a few weeks in residence up here at SPAC.
It was an all Russian program. Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto #2 (one of my favorites) and Prokofiev Symphony #5 (one of John’s favorites). Very, very good! Then we went out for coffee afterwards. An official date night 😉
After a wonderfully cool night of sleep (we dipped into the 50s), I was up for brekkie. This is the first time all week I missed grains because I wanted pumpkin oats today since it was so cool. Oh well, soon enough. Instead, I did a 1-minute muffle with blueberry sauce and coconut butter.
Such a nice day out today. We do have really wonderful days here in the later summer. I am sorry for all of you feeling the heat and drought 🙁
It did call for a porch lunch today.
I mixed up tuna (yes, 1 can made a reappearance) with mayo and lemon pepper. Plus a whole cucumber, which was a bit on the bitter side. Boooo.
Here is some of this week’s garden:
Aphids! Ewwwww!!!! I got some organic insecticide to put on these tonight.
The marigolds – I know everyone loves these poms.
Four o’clocks. I grew these from seed. They are really fragrant. The blooms open up early in the morning and close during the day. Then they open again in the evening.
Such a gorgeous day today! John made me up a latte while I was working.
My new headphones for work. I love them! They are USB and the sound is much better.
It was such a nice night we wanted to bike for dinner. This usually means pizza, but I am no grains. We went to East End Eatery because they do have other things on the menu:
Grilled chicken! I did bend my local meat rule here, but having too many rules is not always a good thing. Note John’s pizza in the background. Surprisingly, I was not craving pizza – even seeing it. It looked good, but I was fine with my meal. The fries were excellent, too!
We had a nice 10 mile round trip for dinner. Tomorrow should be a nice long ride day. No cupcakes, but there will be some yogurt or ice cream in the mix. Yum.
I am so glad it is the weekend! Now if you will all excuse me, I have a couple plums to eat
