I’m captive today. Surrendered my car to a mechanic this morning with hopes of picking it up sometime tomorrow afternoon. Then, shortly after getting back home, the rain started. I’m quite certain the rain came to ensure that I stay inside, blanketed and on the couch today. Just when it looked like spring….R and I have been talking of gardening, bbq’s (yes, we now officially live in the suburbs- more on this adjustment later) and then, just like that, the sky opens up and pours out the last of winter. I love it. I wish we’d get more rain. I love finally living in a (slightly) cooler climate with the occasional rainstorm. It’s been so nice working from home today, with my coffee and stormy soundtrack. Here’s my week in photos- mostly from a weekend bike ride and a few neighborhood beach walks. A little taste of the central coast (yes, it was sunny all week until today):
And…. in a surprising burst of weekend baking energy: I made a challah on Sunday! Holla! Used the Smitten Kitchen recipe! So easy and delicious. This has inspired to make more bread. It’s so satisfying. Will let you know how it goes!
