Incidents & Accidents

Sunday, January 24, 2010


If you haven't read Ellen's latest post, go and do so. It is well worth your time.

Last weekend, as I've already mentioned, was rather epic. On Sunday, David and I did even more winter adventuring, visiting Lake of the Isles (around which I frequently run in warmer weather) to fulfill my long-held goal of walking out to the islands. We did so, and it was great! Then we went to Pancho Villa to watch the Vikings win.

We're headed over there in a few minutes to watch them play the Saints. I'm even wearing purple (thanks to a lovely Christmas gift from my sister--though it's admittedly a Gap T-shirt and not a Minnesota jersey).

Over all, this weekend has been slightly less epic, though it did involve homemade cinnamon rolls, the espresso machine that had been languishing in my closet for many months, Tater Tots, and a fair amount of Rome on DVD. (We're having our January Thaw, which means temps near 40, but lots of drippy grayness.)

The weekend also involved a trip to the 'burbs to a fantastic fabric outlet warehouse, about which I intend to write more later.

For now, off to root, root, root for the home team!

Oh, I really liked Rome, even if it was kind of depressing.

And a fabric warehouse!!! That sounds so fun. I wonder if we have one. Probably not.

And last night, I could tell the Saints won their game by the hundreds of firecrackers going off in my neighborhood around 9:30 pm.

The warehouse was AMAZING; I'll have to check with David to see if he grabbed any pictures.

I realized late in the game that it was happening in your neck of the woods. I was disappointed that the Vikings lost, but it is pretty great that the Saints finally get to go to the Superbowl.

Thanks for the shout out.

There's a fabric store only a few blocks from me: Sew Sassy; I'll let you draw your own conclusions.

the idea of such huge volumes of water freezing solid enough to walk on just blows my mind.
