This last weekend has been quiet, as I have been alone a lot which is super nice and peaceful. Â I also got some stuff done on the house, which required a trip to Ikea on Sunday – wow, now I remember why I go during the week.
Anyway, Rick my wonderful handyman, came by and fixed the leaking toilet, hung shelves, hung curtains, and even sorted out hanging pictures. Â Whew! Â Plus he came back today to start filling in a doorway, so the house has three rooms, not two rooms and a walk through junk room.
Yesterday I grilled out and bought ribeye, woah, I forgot how expensive good meat is, I normally don’t buy meat anymore, Â sticking to chicken and fish from Costco, bought in bulk and then frozen in packets. Â But, I splurged and Greg was coming for grilling out and I haven’t seen him in almost 6 weeks. Â The meal was perfect! Â I did the grilling, ribeyes (medium rare), chicken thighs (crispy golden), corn and baked potatoes with truffle salt. Â Plus a caprese salad. Â I was going to do grilled peaches with mascarpone cheese, but we were full up, and about to leave to go watch the fireworks.
I love the fireworks at Lenox, it is one of my great memories of the USA is watching them and being wowed. Â So that is what we did. Â We caught MARTA to Buckhead Station and walked on over, it was quick easy and stress free. Â Surprisingly this year the cops did not close Peachtree Street off early enough, so there were cars stuck while people watched fireworks. Â Which was odd, and a little distracting. Â There were some cool colours and newer explosions, and I loved it. Â The MARTA back was just as easy and stress free, definitely the way to go.
Today was my first day back at yoga, oooh, I am unfit and stiff, and tight. Â Hopefully I will go a bunch this month to release the tension in my shoulders and back.
