For such a low-key weekend it was certainly a busy one. It was rainy and wet off and on throughout the weekend so we were inside for a good part of it. ¬†Cloth diaper laundry was done, cookies were made for a cousin on bed rest and we got out for the occasional wet dog walk too. When it wasn’t raining it was foggy. There was a foggy but colorful trip to the farmers market and we went to lunch with the grandparents at a local spot with some nice live music and rice milk chai latte’s (yay!). We took a chilly and foggy beach walk before the rain came in again for the night. Sunday was wet in the morning but perfect weather for a visit to the antique market and a beautiful walk through Marina Park. We got our compost bin up and running too this weekend. Our worm bin was a fail last year on the balcony in Orange County, so we shall see how the compost bin goes. The wet weather is supposed to return this week. I know I’m being very Californian in saying this, but I’m ready for spring. What did you do this weekend?

gramie windowWhat a lovely weekend! It was certainly cold in these parts of California but we bundled up and enjoyed the sunny chill. There were sugar cookies made, oranges plucked from the tree, rolling over by a certain little one, sweaters on dogs who refuse to go on walks, lunch at a local eaterie, mini hikes to beautiful views with the grandparents and a visit from Ellie’s Great Gramma. How was your weekend?

 

Just Need to Get Out

Sometimes people show up at the perfect time, when they’re needed the most. An overly fussy baby and a tired mama make for dismal company but when the company is Gramma and Grandpa, the fussiness seems to subside and the tired mama is quickly woken up with a nice stroll downtown and a new area in the outskirts of town to explore.
