beautiful weekend

in which I/we--

missed my marm
ate hot dogs, then marched across the street for thin-crust pizza
played congratulatory phone tag with my dear friend Laura, who on Friday gave birth to a baby girl
briefly entertained a name change for b. Hoodes
made fun of The Most Annoying Dining Patron Ever
was gifted a beautiful cluster of blushing peonies, my favorite flower, from my boys
took lots and lots of pictures of feet
together made a spring-y Sunday supper of strawberry, almond & spinach salad with strawberry-rhubarb sorbet (I just wrote the letter s 8 times...)
watched huge, shaggy San Francisco dog residents playing on Marina Green
finally discovered a sauvignon blanc that we like at a Merry Edwards tasting
started a new knitting project
drank a tad too much with old and new friends
watched northern California's biggest fireworks show...from a kayak
got reprimanded by the Coast Guard
shared a rhubarb napoleon at the Farmhouse Inn and we both simultaneously swooned
belly laughed at SNL (motherlover!)
took in the view from the Marin Headlands for at least the 15th time since living here
floated in McCovey Cove, just like boaters who try to catch homerun balls do
ate ham & swiss cheese bagel sandwiches for brekkie
ate bacon & egg english muffin sandwiches for a late dinner
attempted getting a pedicure but grew impatient at the long line, then left
took a wonderful spinning class outside, and one of the songs was Billy Jean which rocks my world
completed a wonderful writing exercise that ended up being very meaningful
stalked the flickr pool

drank a dessert wine that we had been holding onto since Christmas, worth the wait
watched the season finale of The Amazing Race--I sobbed at the end
