Great Weekend

What a great weekend I just had, even though it was cold and rainy, it sure was fun!

We to my studio after work until about 8 PM and finished my first book (my journal for the New Year). I know selfish, but I didn't have a journal yet so I had to make myself one and sort of break in my new digs!

Met Debbie at the San Francisco Craft and Folk Art Museum. We were excited to see the Embroidery that is on exhibit currently, but it was all sort of tech based, lit up, etc. Still kind of cool but the museum is literally one room so it took no time at all to check it out. By the time we left it started raining so we walked over to the Metreon to look at Chronicle books and then dashed through the drops to Samovar at Yerba Buena for tea and lunch. I had only been to the Samovar in the Castro, the one at Yerba Buena is awesome, they have a wonderful menu so lunch was fabulous! They make a mean cup of Chai that is for sure, yummmm. We sat and talked for a long time, Debbie showed me some old photos of her from when she was younger which all had a story attached - I loved it. I love hearing about my friends lives before I knew them and looking at pictures. It was a blast. After lunch we went over to St. Patrick's Church, Debbie had never been inside, so we took a lap around and checked it out. I love the smell in there, incense, wood and rain...a great combination in an old church if you ask me. Debbie departed on the 2:35 bus back to Oakland and I had some time before Tim was to meet me at 4:00 PM so I decided to check out the Jewish Contemporary Art Museum. They had an awesome exhibit on the Torah where I learned a TON. They have someone there who is a Scriber and she is currently writing a Torah (it was Shabbat so she was not there), they had a video of her talking about how she came to write the Torah and the entire process. It was super interesting. When I was done at the JCM (also pretty small) I walked around just a bit and then met Tim at the rink for some ice skating. The rink was crowded! It was like dodging landmines the way people were falling all over the place. We had fun though albeit very slow skating at some points when we would get caught in a pack of beginners. When we were done skating we were super hungry so we went to Mel's Diner and had dinner before going home and relaxing for the evening.

Slept in, called Mom and Dad, chatted online with Emily and then at about 1:00 PM went to run errands at Target and then out to lunch with Tim. We played wii in the afternoon, I read a bit and just puttered around the house (which I love). My day concluded with 3 hours of The House of Elliot, I sent my discs back today and CAN'T WAIT for the next 2 to arrive, the episode ended with a cliff hanger.

Monday, so far so good. Skating tonight should be good, maybe not so many kids as on the weekends (fingers crossed). We have been on a Monday before and it was awesome!
Hope your Monday was grand!
