What Do You Do On Your Day Off? November 18, 2013
Hello, dearest darling!,
You might remember that palmist, Anna Esparza, was enlightening us, at last week’s Open House? Here she is, giving Patti an ear full!
Well, when she looked at my hand, she said, Work, work, work! You love to work! She went on to suggest I consider a more balanced lifestyle. (I’ve also heard I should consume 5 fruits and vegetables each day…but that doesn’t mean it happens!)
So today, I took Anna’s advice! Mr. Wonderful and I drove to Sausalito, for the day. If you don’t know about Sausalito, it’s a small town, across the bay from San Francisco. One of my favorite restaurants there, is Poggio. We had a wonderful lunch and watched the people passing by. Purely delightful!
On our way home, we drove through Sonoma, where a favorite antique shop was open. Sonoma Country Antiques, has been in business for years and it’s a place packed with gorgeous American and European antiques, beautifully displayed! We share a love for many of the same treasures!
Just for some additional zing for my day off, I knew it would not be complete, without a visit to a thrift store I had heard about!
Well, let’s see. On a much more positive note, West Point’s Women’s Rugby Team, has had such a stellar season, (see my sweet Betsy, below), that they’re going to Florida in a couple of weeks, to rub knees, with some other crazy college women, who are also really good at the game. It’s some sort of final-final games. (Yes, I suggested golf or tennis. Even shuffleboard or poker, with no luck!) Their team is actually called Women’s Army Rugby, or W.A.R. Sweet , huh?!
