Gentle Readers and Dear Friends I am back up and running and "seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!!" There are still piles of things to do but I am making some head way through the heaps.
Over the last few days - although there where 5 of them away from work they still just flew by - my sister and her family came in Thursday morning and after settling in I knew it would be a great Thanksgiving. We had some other friends over so I had two tables - one for the "old" adults and a table for the "young" adults - and everything worked out well. After a few hours of completely over eating and hanging out we just all plopped down to watch some movies - and that was basically our Thanksgiving!!
Friday came and we headed out to run around San Francisco. I let them make the decisions as to where we are going and what they wanted to do - they are the guests from out of town - and I live here - and we had a great time!!
We started off with a visit to Dudley Perkins Harley Davidson showroom/shop. They are great fans of the motorcycle and Harley is the brand of choice. I had my camera and got some snaps....
This is the front of the place..
.. and there is this old picture you can be a part of, that is Katie and Cissy being part of it and John looking over the top..
Inside on the first floor are some classic bikes and some racing/biking memorabilia
The showroom is upstairs on the second floor..
A bigger snap of the showroom
.. and a bike I thought looked great. From here we went and got a late breakfast at a place called "The Pork Store."
A great place for a tasty breakfast or lunch.
From there we headed to the Haight/Ashbury area....
and passed the Ben Jerry's shop, where I got this snap of the seasonal flavour offerings....
We walked in and out of the shops along Haight Street and made a big stop at Amoeba Records. We rounded out the day with a tasty dinner from Patci's Pizza- they deliver!!!
They packed up and left Saturday morning and we had our quiet afternoon cleaning and putting everything away. On Sunday we got to early Mass where Father Steve and all of us used the new Roman Missal, 3rd Edition, translation - there was some stumbling, but eventually everything will run smoothly again. Thank goodness there was a fold out card with the step by step new responses and changes spelled out!!
I finished up the stitching and finishing of an Exchange piece that I will send out tomorrow.
There you go - our little weekend of Family, food and fun!! Thanks for stopping by, do come again!
