This weekend Dan and I went to the plaza art fair not once, but twice. Art + good food + good friends? I am surprised we weren’t there the entire time.
Friday night we met up with Julie and her husband Mike.
We looked at some art, but I had the bright idea of trying to buy food in the fair food crazy lines, which landed us at Gram and Dun at 10 PM completely ravenous. This ended up being a good thing because Gram and Dun makes wonderful food and we had the chance to sit and chat with our friends.
Saturday we met my friends from high school because Sarah was in town from North Carolina.
Apparently, I was too busy chatting with the girls as we moved from booth to booth, because I failed to notice that Dan had purchased a piece of art. The front was wrapped, but when I saw that the description on the back said, “Hogfather” I knew I was in for a treat.
He ceremoniously unwrapped it to reveal this:
Yep - that is a hog’s head on a human body holding a chunk of bloody meat. I think I will hang it in our entryway. It will especially welcome any guests to the house who are hungry for dinner. Ina can say goodnight to Mr. Hog/creepy man every night before bed.
I clearly won.
Other weekend happenings:
- Saturday we weeded my garden and harvested some more kale, which makes my $1.50 investment in a kale plant completely worth the at least $75 worth of kale I have picked from it.
In case you were wondering, hovering over a kale plant while trying to pull weeds with a toddler on your back in an excellent workout.
-Sunday Ina and I went for a little jog before church, which she ended up sleeping through.
-After church we met our friends at the Royals game where we cheered the Royals on to a W!
Ina was in hot dog / Dorito heaven.
-After the game we went to a family BBQ to help celebrate Papa Dan’s birthday. (Thanks Debbie for the pic!)
We crashed as soon our as heads hit the pillows.
I hope you had a good weekend too!
