My last week was spent studying for my first college exams, being worn out from driving home at one a.m. from seeing Jenny Lewis play in Fayetteville, bike rides, & lots of quick lunches that consisted of opening up a can of beans(something i actually very much enjoy.) So, by time Thursday came, i was excited to be done with the exhausting part of the week. Marianne, Keesha, Nick & i went to the pizza place Meg works at for a free meal, and noticed some stuff in the dumpster behind the salvation army next door...which lead to us climbing into dumpsters & jumping on top of old matresses stacked seven high to uncover tons of beautiful old suitcases & the perfect chair that i've been looking for for my bedroom.
Needless to say, it was exciting. & probably illegal.
Nick & I stayed up that night as his house making muffins & crafting.
Friday after classes & smoothies with Nick, I drove home to eat sushi with my mom & visit for the weekend.
We woke up early on Saturday to meet Meg out at the farmer's market.
I spent merely 11 dollars on five large apples, two sweet potatoes, a clove a garlic, about 5 big bundles of basil, and a half pound bag of purple hull peas. it was so exciting. i made some homemade pesto when i got home with all the basil i bought.
we met up with my dad at boulevard for lunch & spent some much needed time together.
i miss the days when it was easy for the four of us to be together for a day.
For dinner tonight, Nick & I made turkey meatballs with organic homemade spaghetti sauce on the whole wheat pasta i bought at the farmers market in Columbia, with an organic french baguette and my homemade basil pesto. : )
It feels immensely better cooking dinner at home with him than going out to a restaurant.
sweet sleep to all.
