the world spins madly on

we had a lovely weekend in pennsylvania. the sun was shining and the sky was blue and the weather was warm and i was so busy enjoying my bike ride and eating homemade ice cream on a mennonite farm and being fascinated by the amish version of a hay baler that i did not take a single photograph. kellee did though, so here is a little proof.

we also took in the millersville parade, which seems to celebrate nothing in particular. but any parade with adorable kids wearing sequins and giant cows plus a hobo band and some roller derby girls is a winner in my book.

and we ate dinner saturday night at a chocolate cafe. if you are wondering whether chocolate-balsamic vinaigrette is delicious, the answer is yes. if you are wondering whether EH and i have a new cooking rule-- if it doesn't have chocolate in it, we won't eat it-- the answer is also yes.

after such a grand weekend away, this week has unfolded mostly uneventfully. i didn't have to work on monday (the church is true!) so i did 900 loads of laundry, ran some errands (how come you can never leave target having spent less than $60?), got my nails done and went to a movie by myself in the middle of the day. if i am ever so blessed as to be a lady of (even part-time) leisure, i will spend every afternoon at the movies, i think. i saw "the town." it was not as good as i wanted it to be.

oh, and i baked an apple pie for family night. it was delicious.

also for family night, we took a tour of the houses in our neighborhood decked out for halloween, but i feel as though that deserves a post of its own, so that is all i will say on the subject for now.

yesterday i helped ABK arrange his new apartment. did you know ABK moved to d.c.? downside: no more brooklyn brunches. upside: we could have brunch together every day if we wanted to! i have known ABK for seven years and this is the first time we have lived in the same city. i think it is 100 percent good news.

and today i learned how to hem a pair of pants and fix a leaky faucet. plus i caught up on some "30 rock." so i would say things are going pretty well around here.

how are you?

The target rule must be like $60 per person in your family, because I spend $200 there regularly. That's why I don't go very often. Costco is also that way- but it's more like $100/person there!
