Weekend went past faster than I could track. I was feeling really poorly on Friday, so after the doc, I went home and crashed out. Spring was really in the air, though, so the flowers were starting to bloom. I couldn't resist stopping to admire some of the first flowers of the season.
I go back to the doc in another week - hopefully I'll have the meds down so I'm not as sick as I am now, soon. I also discovered weatherspark - (I set up Interactive weather graphs for North Beach, MD, 20714, USA. http://t.co/3xVDzP9)
Saturday - Chores, did a little fallout 3, BHK ,the in-laws and I went out for a late meal. We ate a little hummus and felafel at the pizza joint between our house and Annapolis - not bad, but they got our order wrong - I got tomatoes on my hummus, and Larry got cheese on his hamburger.
Sunday - we got up early to make an exodus to Savage Mill so BHK and our gang could hit the the yarn party (primarily BHK's thing, though I had a nice time too. She got loads of loot that she'll no doubt post to her ravelry page.
Also at the mill was The Family Game Store - Robin was a very helpful host - Games obtained - Gore Years expansion for Chrononauts, Mr. Jack Pocket, and Qwirkle Cubes. (Not to mention a renewed love of Cheapass Games. ) They have a *lot* more items in stock than are listed on the website, and many are open and playable - I really like the place - it's family run, and they appear to know their stuff!
The Curmudgeon Bookseller, on the other hand could've used a lot more help with displays. It was a pretty standard collection of older books - I think that anything I'd have purchased there would have been a happy accident, rather than by an active search.
Whatchamacallit - Bleh... overpriced café-style shop at Savage Mill. The restaurant specializes in breakfast, light foods and baked goods. Bagels, hot and cold sandwiches, salads, toast, pies and cookies are all on offer here, but at $1.30 for a diet coke in the can, I was happy to head to Piece A Pizza
Ended on a happy note at Piece A Pizza. Mozzarella / Basil / Roma Tomato pie was good, and the white pizza was also excellent. Cookies are great, but 4 for$5
Polished off the day at Cosmic Comics & Toys (While BHK went to Cloverhill Yarn for a little more textile fun) , sadly, about 5 minutes before they were due to close.
I was a bit put off by the Christian rock on the speakers... and the relatively cool reception I received, given how nice the other guy was the last time I visited. I'm going to chalk it up to him being antsy to go home, but I didn't really feel very welcome this time. I'll be back, but we'll see If I return for a fourth time. When met with a friendly smile, I dropped a nice pocket of cash - this time, I left quickly, without making a purchase.
We got home ok - though I think the sheer amount of time out and about wore me to a nubbin.
Today - Lots of running around and putting out fires. (or, a typical Monday.) Now that the dust has settled and I'm heading home, I thin I may hit the hay early, just to get my energy back up for tomorrow.
