Weekend in Review

Hey, can someone hand me some coffee?
Ahhh, yess, Monday morning and the promise of yet another week. I had a really nice weekend so I don't mind so much having to work today. It is when I don't get anything done on the weekend and then Monday rolls around that I feel I need another day.
Saturday was so nice. I slept about 12 hours and woke up at about 10:30 AM to the phone ringing. It was Tim's sister so I spoke to her for about 45 minutes on the phone (Tim was out playing tennis). I slowly woke up and made myself some tea and got back into bed and read and slept for a couple more hours. At 3:00 PM I got up and took a shower and was ready to go out and do something. Luckily we had plans to meet up with Katie and Marc for an early dinner at Herbivore. We met them there and sat outside in the back since it was warm outside. We gave them a gift for the baby (due in one month) and ate dinner. Both of them crack me up so it was a lot of fun. All of laughed our way through dinner and dessert and then decided to go over to their place to play wii. Tim kept telling me about it and I was not in the "know" until I played it. I absolutely LOVED it. It was so much fun. We played tennis and boxing and Marc showed me around the wii system. You can get on the Internet, etc. it was really cool. The next thing we knew it was about 9:15 PM so we decided to head back home. When we got home we watched TV and I worked on a little craft project until about 11:30 PM and then it was time for bed.

Sunday I took a class in Berkeley from 11-6. It was a calligraphic flourishing class taught by a man who does Spencerian calligraphy (super ornate and swirly). I did not do the sample above, but that gives you an idea of what it is supposed to look like. On my way to the class I payed attention to my natural surroundings and to the trees that were in bloom (as promised on my Friday post) and took some photos. There was a band playing music by Peet's coffee so I listed to that for a while and when 11 AM rolled around I walked over to my class. The class was hard for me. I am a little heavy handed with pens and had to teach myself that the pen barely has to touch the paper in order to get the desired look. It is a beautiful art, it was fun to meet new people and doodle all day. I don't know if it is something I will incorporate in my other art stuff, but we will see. When the class was over I went home and Tim and I ordered Chinese Food and listed to some music, I worked on some craft stuff and then went to bed. I slept until about 8:00 AM this morning! Yikes! It felt good though.
Below are some photos from my walk on 4th Street in Berkeley.
Stay tuned...
