Just a Quiet Weekend

I can't say I've been documenting my life much lately, mainly just because there isn't that much going on. Unexciting things, prep for bigger things to come, laundry, season premieres, but nothing worth noting.

At least this past weekend, we were actual people. We got out of the house and did stuff. Nice change of pace.

So, on to what we did! First, we went out for a lovely lunch at a new place down on campus. It's called 'The Fix' and it only serves fancy and customized versions of macaroni and cheese. Dan had jalapeno and bacon and I had tomato, mozzarella, and basil. It was yum yum yummy.

Also, Saturday was free Smithsonian museum day, meaning any museum associated with the Smithsonian was 100% free entry. We chose to use our tickets for the Arizona State Museum. Do you know what it has? Lots of baskets and pottery from Southwestern Native Americans. Yep, baskets. Tucson's history is baskets. I guess it's ok, but I really wish he had more momentous and significant exhibits and sites.

Dan did learn how to weave a basket.

I learned that this lovely little owl pot was somehow significant.

We also learned about the ten types of Native Americans in the Southwest, their history, and where they are now.

We rounded out the day with a trip to the grocery store, a trip to the mall, watching a football game on TV, helping Dan's friend shop for a new car, and watching the season premiere of SNL. It was a good way to spend a weekend before the craziness that is October starts. {Sidenote: since October is like one of two nice months in Tucson, there are a million freaking things going on. Plus trying to tile a fireplace.}
