Today I am just posting unrelated photos of a few new 5 x 7 pieces while I tell you about my weekend.
I was hard at work on my son's room redo that I will be showing you on Thursday as part of Linda's Linking participant ORC.
The room isn't even done but I got so excited I emailed photos to my son, Mr. Death Metal Maniac, which is the name on his email profile and new to me. Nothing makes a mother prouder.
Mr. DMM also answered his phone, a rare occurrence, and told me all about his college classes. I was pleased to hear that he is crazy busy. He was also surprised to hear that I was redoing his room ( I only talked about it all summer) and that I have a website. I don't know how he crosses the street.
Saturday, my husband was home, another rare occurrence. We decided on an impromptu dinner out and nixed Oktoberfest in downtown Fredericksburg in favor of Culpeper. Culpeper, Virginia is about 40 minutes from my house and is a quaint little town in horse country. There is a restaurant that we had heard about and just not ever bothered to visit. I mean it is just Culpeper, right?
Boy, have we been missing out. The dinner was amazing and I am not easy to impress in the food department.
This is what we ate:
Crispy pork belly on rhubarb compote bruschetta
Grilled Lamb Steak served on a Citrus Braised Eggplant and finished with a Cardamom Scented Yogurt
Pan seared Tuna with roasted red pepper and golden raisin reduction
Coffee and Chocolate Covered Almond Ice Cream
Chocolate Pots au creme
It was heaven.
How was you weekend?
