Hey there. Long time no post. How’ve you been? Busy? Yeah, us too. We unpacked the last of the boxes today, so we’re looking forward to a whole lot of the following:
Two weeks ago, we made the move from highrise hell to a cute condo north of Old Town Alexandria. We’re right off the George Washington Parkway, just a hop skip and a jump from the Potomac on one side, and Buzz and Rustico on the other. The new place certainly has its challenges, including a tiny kitchen (at least when compared to our last two):
but it makes up for it with sunlight and a washer and dryer and no elevator and trees and quiet neighbors and lots of things for Mina to climb:
This weekend I was supposed to be in class Friday night and all day Saturday, but due to a registration snafu, we unexpectedly had an entirely free weekend ahead of us at 5pm on Friday night. We took advantage of it and went on a date, watched a lot of football, and found farmers’ market treasures on a very hot Saturday:
8 pounds of peppers for $4! I roasted most of them while SB relaxed after lugging them (and lots of other stuff) around the market for too long in the sun. They’ll make for fantastic eating in a few months.
In other news, a frittata miracle occured Thursday night:
The secret? Amply coating the bottom of the pan with butter, then spraying the sides with non-stick spray. Genius. Now that things are a bit more settled, I’m hoping that we can get back to more regular adventures – and also more regular blogging – around these parts. Until then, please make sure you’re registered to vote, and keep cool and out of harm’s way.
