Shan knits, and does a lot of other stuff too.

2 years, baby!

May26

Sunday, May 17, was our second wedding anniversary. 2 years! Sweet! And he still seems to like me! Yes!

We started the party early by going to see Star Trek at the drive-in. It was, as promised, awesome. Zachary Quinto… you know, as captivating as he is on Heroes, I didn’t give him much credit for being a really good actor. (Inherent contradiciton? Yes.) Maybe it’s because I spend most of his onscreen time wishing that they would clean up the hair. The front is fine, but there is no, and I mean NO reason for it to be longer than his collar in the back. But he was excellent. The trick with seeing movies at the drive-in is that you miss a lot of the details. I didn’t realize that Kirk’s mom was Cameron from House. But the sound was great and the movie was excellent.

Sunday morning we went to church, partly making sure to because we thought that the Bishop was being released, and partly because it’s where we were married, and it’s nice to return to the scene of the crime. He’s also the one who married us, so it was a one-stone-two-birds kind of situation. We went up to the room where we were married, but that’s the room where they have choir practice, so we didn’t go in.

After church we went to Little America for the breakfast buffet. This is always such a treat. All of the goodies… eggs benedict, blintzes, pancakes, omelettes, an incredible variety of fruit, and my favorite, smoked salmon and bagels, plus a lot more.

We had planned some sort of outing that afternoon, but after the buffet we decided that a nap sounded nice. And it was. We were pleasantly full, the room was cool, and the duvet was warm. Really, what more could you want?

After our nap we did some origami and talked to our parents on the phone, and then we ordered Chinese food. While we ate the Chinese food we watched the Rifftrax of the second Matrix Movie. Matrix Revolutions, or Reloaded, or Rehashed, or Refried. I can never remember.

I’m still scrapping some of the photos, but here’s one page I’ve done:

Friday (April 24) is for fun

April24

So, it’s time for the Friday edition of ShanKnits.  Fridays are for fun!

Okay, to be more specific if you’re doing this whole life thing right, hopefully everyday is about fun and happiness as well as productivity, progress, good works, blah blah blah. But, Friday is a special day, it’s the day Shannon posts about things that might help you enjoy your weekend. And, being that I, Shannon, am more than a little bit known for the randomness, who knows what will happen?

This week’s Fun Thing – Really, really Belgian Waffles

I have very fond memories of my trip to Belgium a few years ago. I visited two cities, Brugge (Bruges) and Bruxelles (Brussels). As a good portion of any of my tourist experiences involves food, two of the things that I really, really wanted to do there were have waffles and fries. While not a fan of what most Americans think of as “Belgian Waffles”, those airy, deep pocketed things that it are impossible to butter, I was pleased as punch to find out that there is another kind of waffle in Belgium, the Liege waffle. While the Brussels waffle is eaten with a knife and fork, served as a dessert, and often topped with whipped cream, fruit,  and/or ice cream, the Liege waffle is a street food, like hot dogs or tacos. It’s a dense yeast-based waffle with clumps of sugar in it and a golden exterior. While the former is easy to find at many breakfast places, the latter has been hard to come by in Salt Lake, outside of a cart at the Farmers Market.

Well, good news. Pierre , the owner of the aforementioned cart has opened a permanent location now, just across the street from Pioneer Park. Bruges Waffles & Frites serves exactly those things, waffles and frites (fries). You can get a waffle with chocolate, whipped cream, and/or chocolate, or a cone of fries with your choice of 7 or 8 different mayonaise-based sauces.  They do have one other item, a Flemish stew, but I couldn’t tell you anything about that. (Yet.) Pierre is tri-lingual, so if you speak French, Flemish, or English, say hi.

Yesterday… all my troubles were successfully ignored

April22

Yesterday was quite a nice day, I must say.

I got up at a reasonable hour, then hung out until it was time for the luncheon. Actually, I should be more exact. I hung out and did laundry until Liz came to the door and I realized that I had completely lost track of time and had neither prepared myself nor the dessert I was to take. Luckily the luncheon was in our building’s (very convenietnly located) social room, and I am married to an incredibly sweet man who offered to run to the store and grab something. I asked him to pick up a chocolate cake, a can of whipped cream, and some strawberries. I figured that you can’t go wrong with those three things.

I ended up simply putting a piece of cake on each plate, putting a dollop (spray) of whipped cream on the plate, and sticking two strawberries in each one. Simple. (I should have taken lots of pictures, but didn’t. I’m sorry.) Liz made a delicious black bean salsa, Stacey made a delicious spinach salad, Heather brought a veggie tray from Costco (you know, the good one with the dill dip and peppercorn ranch) and Kim brought a tray of delicious sandwiches.

Afterward, I walked to the post office to mail a few eBay sales and then to Sam Weller’s. Speaking of, Sam Weller’s is planning on moving, so all of the used books are 25% off right now. As I walked back I took a few flower pictures, and I thought that I ought to post one.

I was excited to see something I hadn’t expected at all, lilacs starting to bloom. I love lilacs more than almost anything on Earth.

Lilacs starting to bloom

Thing you should do. You know. If you want to. I guess.

I was writing Friday’s blog post when I realized that what I was going to suggest there might not be as possible/fun since there is supposed to be a storm coming in on Friday that could possibly last through the whole of the next week, so here’s an idea….

Take a flower walk. Whether or not you are participating in Project 365 (I’m not, but think it’s a great idea,) it’s a wonderful time to take 20-60 minutes and take a walk with a camera, and maybe those people you like to take pictures with/of, and find some pretty patches of flowers. Tulips and daffodils are at their prime in downtown Salt Lake, and I suspect that after this weeken’s storms the blossom will be off of many of the flowering trees, so don’t wait!

You know, if you want to.
