Weekend Snapshots

The forecast for this weekend was rain, rain, and more rain. But this time I didn’t do what I usually do when it rains.

Instead I went to San Francisco, enjoyed a Thai lunch, and spent the rest of the rainy afternoon in a cozy wine bar. If you had to be out and about in the rain, that was the place to do be. I was obsessed with the sheep-shaped artwork on the walls. So cute, right? I also saw The Hunger Games. I had been waiting for the movie for what seems like the longest time and I plan to share my thoughts in a separate post!

So yes, it was a great weekend despite the weather not cooperating. How was your weekend?

Let it Rain

As fun as it was wearing sandals and sipping a java chip frapuccino in January (like in this post), all good things must come to an end.  After a particularly dry winter, we are expecting a weekend filled with rain.

I actually enjoy the rain. I love the sound it makes tapping against my windows, while I sip tea or read a book. I love the smell of the rain after it has fallen. It’s like a clean slate.

Hope you all have a a happy, warm weekend!

Happy Friday!

TGIF! The weekend is a mere hour and a half away for me. It’s been a long week and I am excited to unwind. Here’s why:

– It’s supposed to be in the mid-70s this weekend. In FEBRUARY. I love it. As much of the country was stuck in a snow storm this week, I am glad to live in not such an extreme climate. My parents always say “We pay for the weather” and it is so true!

– Our annual Super Bowl party: I am not a football fan at all, but this gives me an opportunity to bake. What’s on the agenda? Chocolate chip cookies and zucchini bread. Yes, zucchini bread..don’t knock it until you try it! It’s a recipe my mom got from way back when we used to live in the Midwest. It became a fast favorite with our family and my mom’s specialty, but she passed the torch to me. 🙂

We also have a lot savory goodness at the party, ranging from homemade salsa, seven layer dip, spinach dip, and of course our Indian favorites. So, while everyone is enjoying the game I will be sitting in the corner, happily enjoying all the food.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
