Some Weekend Stuff

Gentle Friend we had a lovely weekend here by the Bay.  It was bright and sunny and although chilly not nearly as cold as the past week had been.  We decided to change things up a bit after our usual grocery shopping Saturday morning.  After unloading the car we headed on over to the Legion of Honor, located at Lands End in Lincoln Park....


What got us over there was the temporary exhibition 


We knew time was running out (The show closes in a couple of weeks) - we had talked about going for a while.  It was a gorgeous show with lots a beautiful things to see - and so worth the visit!!  We walked around the grounds afterward - as they are so pretty....  here are a couple of snaps...

......  looking toward the Golden Gate - lots of sailing going in the bright sunshine that typified Saturdays weather.


Looking in the other direction across the golf course we could look out to the pacific Ocean.  It was a lovely visit and I am really happy that we made the effort to get there before they packed the Royal "bric-a-brac" up and sent it back to France.

Yesterday I baked up a tasty coffee cake...  a "Rich Cranberry Coffee Cake" to be precise..


The recipe I found on line over at Taste of Home.  I made two little changes, I added and extra 1/2 Cup of cranberries and deleted the powder sugar on the top - I did not think that the powdered sugar added anything to the finished cake except make it look a bit dusty!!

On the stitching front I worked a bit on Mary Hutton, and will get a snap up tomorrow.

That's about it for today sports fans.  Thanks again for stopping by, do stop again!

take care,
edgar
