Weekend activities

Friday night we enjoyed Eat, Pray, Love (which I always want to call Eat Love Pray … just seems to flow better).  We both enjoyed it, especially my husband, because it reminds him of the journey he’s been on this year.  His has been an inner journey of exploration of traditional Christian prayer, Buddhist chanting, and mediation.  He’s also spent significant time in Indonesia, including a year teaching English to some Indonesian medical students, and this past year we made two trips to Rome.

While my husband hosted a working group for TedX San Diego at our house Sat., I used the free time to gather all my childhood/teen diaries, along with several “how to write memoirs” books and spent the morning in my comfy cushioned chair on our master deck, under the oak tree, using a boulder for my ottoman.  I had wanted to write for 6 hours straight, but having to make a lunch run to feed myself and the Gardener, and drive my son to his Dad’s house, interrupted that plan.  I did enjoy the 3 hours I was able to spend on it, though, although it’s always hard to choose between reading the “how to” books and spending the time writing.  Sat. night we had a wonderful dinner with some new friends who are experimenting with a system for growing fish in special tanks that enable you to recycle the used fish water to use in the garden, and the fish to go through their growth cycle and then serve as fresh food for the dinner table.  It’s an exciting concept and the veggies they are growing are beautiful and healthy and taste wonderful. 

Sunday was not near as enjoyable … had hours of timesheets for August to complete, and the whole month of emails to go through (archiving, acting upon, deleting, etc.).  So after a nice Sunday breakfast at The Original Pancake House (they’ve expanded their menu and the Mediterranean omelette was delicious!) I settled in at the computer from 10 ’til 5 while my husband and his daughter enjoyed listening to Blues music at a Jolla cove.  Envious, I jumped into my swimsuit, grabbed the book I’m reading (Passages) and relaxed for an hour, which was great.  All in all, a productive and enjoyable weekend was had by all!
