Two Purple Cows and a Beautiful Weekend

This weekend was so nice and sunny (at least in Bernal it was) - sorry Sunset district. This photo was taken from the staircase across from my flat.

Most of the day Saturday was consumed with cleaning out the storage in the basement and gathering items for a garage sale we are going to have with friends in Sacramento next month.

I found a lot of stuff I had not seen in a long time. It was sort of fun. I wish I could have spent more time down there - there is no light so I have to wear a headlamp and since I have bad allergies, I have to wear a mask as well. As you can imagine, my getup was pretty impressive. I don't know how Tim kept his hands off of me. I have a nice pile of things to sell going in my hallway now and I am excited to unearth more as I clean my place out in search of things to get rid of.

Sunday morning I got up and made waffles - I wrote my own recipe and I have to say, they were pretty darn good. The recipe made 6 so I have two in the freezer for another day - I think we may heat them up and make hot fudge sundaes over them later this week - yummm! I took my time easing into the day which was a nice change as apposed to getting out the door like a shot gun as I do during the week. I went to Debbie's house in the afternoon to hang out and craft while we watched a movie - my favorite afternoon of them all. So, we watched Chicken Run and I worked on embroidery while Debbie knit. It was nice to get out of the city for a break and hang out in an actual house without loud neighbors upstairs walking around in their loud shoes (big problem, growing bigger each day). At about 5:30 I headed back to the city and was craving pesto so I made a pasta dish with orecchiette pasta, pesto, artichoke hearts, asparagus and sweet peas topped with toasted pine nuts and freshly grated Parmesan. For dessert, a blast from the past....Purple Cows! Tim had never had one, so I had to make them.
All in all, it was a very nice weekend. Got a lot of stuff done that I have been thinking about for a while, which was nice.
Have a great week!
I will try to update more often this week.
