Gentle Readers and Dear Friends another Monday is upon us - the weekend was a lot less wet than the week - so that's something to be grateful for. We started off the weekend on Friday evening by going out to dinner to a favorite restaurant of ours. It is a little Italian place we haven't been to in a while called Capri. It is on upper market in the Castro district and has been there forever. I had some delicious lasagna - it's what I always have when we go there. I often have the same things over and over at specific places, I guess I get to liking one dish and just stick to it - occasionally I break out and try something new, but the old tried and true always wins in my book.
On Saturday we made it to a few of the local Estate sales and I picked up a few things......-
A locally published version "David Cooperfield" - 1947, a great old vase, a wooden shelf, an old hard paste porcelain plate, a new box of Grinchy Xmas cards.... and we stopped off at a Blockbuster that was going out of business and I picked up a couple of BluRay flicks I didn't have.
I made a recipe of my great aunts - Apricot Nectar Cake - I have seen the recipe on line as it is not hard, but very tasty.....
- and - I got in a little stitching - here is a progress snap of ABC Hornbook.... the Blogger thing is giving a ton of trouble - I'll try again tomorrow to post a snap. sorry.
There you go sports fans - a low key weekend!! Hope yours was a easy going as ours.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again.
