Dreamy Saturday

Saturday, May 26th, 2012


Today was dreamy…

Breakfast with Nik at home…coffee and cinnamon currant loaf from Acme.

Quick wake-up shower.

Scooter ride downtown along our typical commute route, only there was very little traffic.

Ran into a store to return some pants only to find out that the cashier never actually charged us for them. Weird, I know.

Continuation of the scooter ride through SoMa, the Dog Patch, the Outer Mission and Bernal Heights in search of the Alemany Farmer’s Market.

Easily squeezing into the parking lot because we have a scooter while all the suckers with big cars waited in line!

Strolled through the market, which is by far our favorite farmer’s market in San Francisco. We picked up strawberries, peaches, oranges, basil, beets, green beans, and collard greens.
Bought four hot tamales to share while sitting on the ground. Had dessert horchata while watching people scrounge for cherries.

Part three of the scooter ride through a couple neighborhoods we had never been in. Portola, Excelsior, Glen Park, Sunnyside, Balboa Terrace, Ingleside, Parkside, the Sunset, and finally through Golden Gate Park back home to the Richmond. Along the way, we were stopped at a traffic light, and Nik turned his head and said, “I like being married to you.”

Parked the scooter, washed off the strawberries and enjoyed the sweetness of being home together.

Nik played computer games while I sewed him a case for his hard drive.

I talked to my mom for a couple minutes before being forced off the phone by my sister because she was physically with my mom, and she wanted her attention. I didn’t think it was fair, but we ended our conversation anyways.

Nik continued playing the game while I made myself an iPad case out of a remnant of Merrimekko fabric.

Nik made pesto and green beans for dinner while I packed up my sewing table and washed the dishes.

We ate dinner at home in the kitchen in the booth with red wine from the first Outstanding in the Field dinner of the season (which I served at a couple weeks ago).

Nik juggled while I watched.

I made oatmeal cookies and he read tech news while still seated in the booth.

We ate cookies and strawberries and drank tea, which brings me to right this moment. I am writing my first blog post in months. It is also the first one I have ever written on the iPad, so maybe writing this way will be easier for me since I rarely turn on my computer these days.

That is all! It wasn’t a day of anything extraordinary, but this is one of my favorite kind of days. Also, a lot of our Saturdays have been like this one lately, so by telling you the story of today, I have told you the story of nearly every Saturday!

ps. Thank you Kisha for nudging me to post again. Your encouragement means a lot.
