Weekend Wrap-up

My plans to avoid work on Friday afternoon were thwarted, but I managed to end the evening well with a mushroom burger at Whitlows on Wilson and the chance to navigate through the most poorly conceived underground parking garage in Arlington for free parking -- if you could fit the entire game of Chutes and Ladders onto the Free Parking space in Monopoly, and then rig Mousetrap! around it, you'd have some semblance of similarity.

On Saturday, everyone on Facebook was mentioning that it was snowing, so I looked out the window and confirmed what I had learned (with less effort) on the Internet. Other than a quick sprint to Costco for essentials (kitty litter and hand soap refills), we stayed in all day through four inches of snow, making chocolate chip cookies, putting up the Christmas tree, and watching the movie, Coraline.

Sunday was a quiet, productive day filled with a snow-walk to Safeway, thank-you notes (50 down, 16 to go), and some e-learning about new technologies. In the evening, we ate very small chickens with a rich butter glaze that was very close to four parts butter with one part margarine. Delicious!

I also posted a few pictures from Fall 2009 for your viewing pleasure.
