I had a fairly long list of things I intended to do this weekend, but what I mostly did was knit. I have myriad appointments this coming week and the New Baby will be here any day and what with one thing and another I felt like I needed another long spell of downtime.

So the Bun (AKA Charlotte) has her dungarees completed.

I got the button bands done on the New Baby’s sweater.

I harvested an eggplant for the evening’s ratatouille.

We have plenty of basil and peppers in the garden as well.

Some flowers, even.

I baked a pineapple upside down cake and a dozen cupcakes for the freezer, cleaned the refrigerator in a slapdash fashion, did the grocery shopping in an equally inadequate way, and read out on the patio for a while.

I tidied my button boxes and knitting box. These are clearly not the most important cleaning tasks in the house, but they were the ones that came up as I was making Charlotte’s dungarees.
