Friday was a rainy windy sort of day. Not much got accomplished around the place, but we did meet up with friends and went out to dinner at El Toritio. Afterwards, we headed to the theatre and caught the high school production of Guys and Dolls. It's a good choice for a Catholic high school. The kids did okay, but it was a little too overdone for my tastes. When the general got down and did rap to Sit Down, You're Rocking the Boat, it was a bit much.
We did get a call from our travel agent who is trying to acquiesce to TBG's desire to fly on a Dreamliner for our next trip. We have no trouble getting one from SFO to Zurich, but we can't find one coming back from Europe to SFO. The only option is from Heathrow, but that was an illegal connection and Heathrow being what it is, we opted out. I think we are going to fly Lufthansa home. We will see.
Saturday was the usual collection of shopping, chores and the like. It got really dark and it hailed like crazy for nearly forty minutes that afternoon. The total storm was about ninety minutes in all (alas, no more avocados), but it was miserable enough that I lit a fire and curled up to quilt. The cats, always opportunists, joined me.
For dinner I made some chicken satay, which I served with a peanut dipping sauce, stir-fried vegetables and pan friends noodles. TBG decided we had too many bananas and so he made Bananas Foster for dessert which we ate while watching Arrietty. It was a nice evening.
I am hoping that today will be a bit warmer. I discovered an open wound on Little Black's tail, so I need to take him to the vet tomorrow. I suspect they will want to keep him overnight. I will have him wormed and deflea'd at the same time. I so wish I could get him adopted. He has such a sweet nature, but with two tomcats already, it would be spray city to bring him in. Sigh, poor guy. He's been adopted and abandoned twice. He's had a hard life already.
Other than that and a trip to the farmer's market, I have nothing on the docket. I hope it stays that way...
Here's wishing everyone the best of all possible Sundays!
