Sun, 14 Apr 2013

This was a fairly normal week while means it was a good one. I did my usual level of work, which at this point is at a level for a normal person.

On Wednesday, I met Maureen at Taluah's Garden before going to a play together. I was running a little early, so I left early and got off at 30th Street Station. Which gave me 90 minutes for a leisurely hike from 30th and Market to Eighth and Walnut. It was unseasonably warm, in the 80s, but it wasn't too humid, so I wasn't that sweaty by the time I got the restaurant.

Rittenhouse Square in bloom.

The "Time Machine" at the Kimmel Center. Interesting but not earth shattering.

Saturday night I built a fire in our fire pit. This time I had all the materials you need to start a fire, ignition sources (paper), kindling (old branches that I have been saving since last summer), and wood. Finally having all the materials at the ready made starting the fire a snap.

Fire... sit with me (and drink beer).

The weather was beautiful, so I was able to have the top off my car almost all week. Which meant I got to make 4 trips to get more blocks for my art wall. 12 blocks at time seems like a reasonable haul for both the puppy truck and me.

Art wall extension, currently blank.
I planted asparagus last year. I'm still a season away from being able to harvest it. One lone but very large stark has appeared. Hopefully more will follow.
