And Your Little Dog Too...




Marietta has a couple of pups on the bottom. Now I am thinking of the doves as the flying monkeys.



I hope that everyone is having a great weekend. I was off yesterday. Rich and I headed up to Greensboro to run some errands. We started off having lunch at a newer restaurant in town called Cleopatra's. It is an Egyptian/middle eastern restaurant.



We started with some hummus, baba ghanoush and fewl. Excuse my spelling if it wrong.



We went on to a sampler grill plate. Everything was great and we will definitely be going back. We brought home leftovers, yum.

After that is was if to Costco, Target and Kohl's. It was good walking around working off our lunch. The temp went up to the low 90's. Too hot for baseball and our timing wasn't right to see a movie.
When I got home I made a couple of loaves of banana bread. They ripen so fast in this weather. I had also bought a lot of fruit on my trip to Aldi this week so we put together a big fruit salad.



Yum!
After that I tried to settle down to stitch. I could not find any type of rhythm. So I gave myself a sloppy pedicure.



It doesn't look too bad from a distance.
Today has been pretty low key, puttering around, vacuuming, more banana bread, a nap and stitching. I think I am still catching up from having been sick.
I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend with some fun and joy!

For how long you were sick, I would imagine your body needs a few naps! I have no idea what that food is, but I'll take your word that it was delish. The fruit salad I recognize!
