Good Morning, Kittens.
Hope you are all well-rested from your Extra-Long Weekend and tackling this bright sunny Monday with vigor!
My weekend was quite good. On Saturday afternoon, I did some gardening, planting 4 different kinds of basil: 2 Thai basil plants, 1 cinnamon basil, 1 purple basil, and a whole bunch of sweet basil seedlings. Then, I made a red quinoa salad (red quinoa + corn + black beans + red onion) with a lime vinaigrette to take to Mike's Fourth of July BBQ, which was a lot of fun. From his house, we walked to Scott Circle to watch the fireworks. Here's a video (no sound) of the Grand Finale:
The rest of the photos are here.
Y drove me home. We had sex. Lots of it. Then, on Sunday morning, he popped the question (so to speak). He asked me if he could move in for a few months. He will be finishing he dissertation this summer and looking for a new job (somewhere). He would like to rent out his entire condo rather than risk leaving it partially vacant.
In normal circumstances, I would have immediately said no. However, these are not normal times and an extra $500 for a few months would certainly be helpful. I would also have to draw some strict boundaries. Anyway, it's something I have to take a few days to think about for sure ...
After he left, Eric from Baltimore came down and we met Tiger and her boyfriend for Margaritas at Alero. Then, Eric and I went to Nellie's for a few drinks. It was dead. We left and got home a little before 11.
All in all, a pretty groovy weekend.
Have a great day!
