A weekend to savor

A Friday evening dinner date at the new Latin-inspired restaurant in our neighborhood.  A glass of refreshing and citrusy Albariño.  Spicy, chipotle-spiked guacamole served with crisped plantain, yucca, and tortilla chips.  Sautéed zucchini squash, roasted carrot mash, and crispy yucca spaetzle with olive pasilla sauce. A long and challenging run on a wooded trail.  A tranquil post-run bubble bath, scented with sweet orange, lavender, and sandalwood  Shopping for fresh ingredients to cook two wholesome, savory dinners.  Whole-grain spaghetti with arugula and a sauce of sun-dried tomatoes, basil, white wine, and garlic on Saturday.  Tandoori-spiced salmon with curried vegetables and brown rice on Sunday.  A suspenseful and thoroughly intriguing film. The seasonal ritual of storing summer clothes to make space for autumn's cozy sweaters, jeans, boots, and scarves.  Savoring the latest issue of a favorite magazine.  Making plans for my upcoming birthday weekend, which will be spent in Colorado with a dear friend, and for an early November sojourn to Virginia's wine country for a weekend of exploring vineyards, dining at an organic farm-to-table restaurant, and enjoying the fall foliage.  Working on several for-fun writing projects while listening to mellow tunes.  Finding the perfect black ballet flats.  Savoring a restorative, creative, and restful weekend.
