Weekend: Degas, park, Korean food, and basketball.

This was our first weekend home in two weeks, so some of it was spent doing those awful household chores that take too much time for a weekday. But we got in a lot of fun, too:
- The Degas exhibit at Newcombe art gallery (I'll post my favorites later).

- An afternoon in Audubon Park, mostly spent working on my crocheting...
Our shadows...because finally we had SUN.
- This crocheting in particular. I finished this 16" doll while at the park.
In granny panties.

- Then I spent some time reading and drinking my coffee. I'm reading A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry. It's just ok. Nothing to write home about. 
More sun.

- Saturday night we watched a short WWII documentary and ate Korean food. This was actually my first time trying Korean food, if you can believe it! I liked our entree - spicy pork and squid on rice - but the kimchi side did not impress. I know kimchi is very on-trend right now, but I guess it's an acquired taste. The spicy marinade somehow seems dry to me, and the flavor is too alkaline, if that makes sense. I mean kind of like mole: the sauce for mole always tastes too alkaline to me, as well. I promise I'm not a picky eater... but the kimchi just didn't do it for me. 

- And while we finished the documentary, I made the doll a little dress. 

Sunday, we slept in a little, and went to church. Later that afternoon, we went to a Pelicans game - the first I've ever been to. We had a season ticket package when they were the Hornets, but I kind of stopped following them recently. I barely knew anyone on the team. For shame.

After the game we visited David's parents to "teach them their phones" as David said; it was good to catch up since it had been a few weeks. We reset their phones to "accessible" which basically makes all the fonts larger, by the way, and that solved most of their problems!

So, full weekend, but nice to spend it at home after being out of town for two weekends.

What's your favorite at-home weekend activity?
How do you feel about Korean food?
Do you have to teach your older relatives their devices?


  1. It's always nice when you have time to check out all that is good about your local area--something we don't do enough of here! As to Korean food--we have tons and tons of it here. Huge Korean population and they have an entire stretch of road that is populated by great restaurants, just about three miles from our house--good stuff!

  2. My favourite weekend at-home activity is napping. Or reading. Or reading till I have to nap. It's just as well I run or I'd be a total sloth.
