Perfect Evening

Pretty Pictures

Yesterday after work, I'd planned to go to the library, make some stir-fry, maybe watch a DVD. But by 3:30 or so, it was raining, hard, and cooling off, and I realized that I was going to be useless that evening for anything but making soup, drinking tea, knitting, and reading a British novel. So when I got home I ransacked the cupboards for vegetable stock and barley, dug random CSA veggies out the fridge, and threw together some vegetable barley soup:

Veggie Soup

While the soup spent most of the evening simmering, I drank tea, knit a sock, and reread the sixth Harry Potter book in preparation for the new one tomorrow.

Perfect Evening

Ahhh. Lovely.

What a perfect evening! I love staying home and relaxing. Can't wait for my HP book to arrive either!

I gotta say: I'm impressed you can knit and read. Did you see HP5? We went over the weekend and were fairly pleased. I was glad to see Umbridge's nastiness reduced for the screen. I'm not a fan of that book, in general though.

Oh, do we get to see any pics from you MLS graduation??

I got a lot of knitting and reading done last night, too, although I was reading Sex, Murder and a Double Latte. I'm listening to the HP books as I drive around and I'm only 1/3 through 4....

That sounds like a very nice evening. Once I read this HP, I'm going back to read them all slowly. I always rip through so fast that I barely remember what happened.

I wish every night could be like that! Wish I could read and knit for that matter ;)

Well, that sounds like my favorite night.
Tea, a book,(sometimes on CD) knitting and vegtable barley soup.... makes me hungry and want fall to come! LOL
