Whew! My crazy week-of-work is over and my life is…
My sincere apologies to those of you mired in snow and cold right now…the weather in San Francisco has taken a sudden turn for the absolutely gorgeous. 60+ and sunny; there really isn’t a better place in the world to be when the weather is this fine. It’s amazing how 20 degrees can change your mood.
I noticed it was strangely warm on Friday night. And our whole street smelled like flowers: the blooming mock orange trees are a sure sign of warm temperatures. We had a quiet night at home with the windows open, delivery sushi and America’s Ballroom Challenge (unequivicably one of television’s finest).
On Saturday, we had coffee and oatmeal for breakfast before driving out to golden gate park for archery. It felt so much like summer with the warm weather and blooming meadow. After an hour or so, we came back home with hopes to have lunch at Woodhouse Fish Company. It was closed and I made grilled cheese with an iceberg wedge salad on the side instead.
At 3:00, we rushed downtown to register at Gump’s. Rob and I decided to forgo registering anywhere else to just get our china and a nice set of sterling flatware. I’ll give a full report on Wednesday. But needless to say, it was pretty amazing!
Back home via subway to quickly change and eat before Calie’s birthday party. We met them at a pub on 9th and Irving for rounds of drinks and hearty conversation. Back home around midnight with a quick stop at the neighborhood market. The middle eastern guys who run it are such gentlemen!
Breakfast tacos and coffee on Sunday morning while watching God Grew Tired of Us, a documentary about Sudanese refugees. At 11:00, we took the tandem out for a ride through golden gate park. We sat at the beach for an hour with a picnic watching dogs and kids play in the sand.
Our total ride was about 10 miles with an average of 12 mph. Back home for some chores and errands in the warm afternoon. Dinner of brined pork chops and spaghetti-thin asparagus.
