The weekend

I hope I am not going to jinx it by saying this, but the weather here in Northern California has been absolutely perfect for the last couple of weeks. I mean, it’s August, people, and the temperatures have been hovering around 90-95ºF. Uhm yeah, pretty much unheard of for August. We had a nice relaxing weekend.

On Friday, I checked out a German deli that I knew existed, but it kind of “out there” and not really on the way to anything, so I hadn’t been there for quite some time, but oh they joy! I found some German goodies that I haven’t had for a really long time. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I had whole grain bread with Blutwurst and lots of mustard for dinner! It was delicious.

We watched “Ted” on Friday night and I must say I found the movie much more entertaining (and laughed out loud a couple of times) than I anticipated. It’s still a very unexpected movie choice for Mark Wahlberg.

On Saturday, we mostly ran errands, did our grocery shopping and I cooked Thai Red Curry for dinner (and wondered once again, why I don’t do that more often. It was delicious!)

Sunday morning was time for the Farmers Market again. I am currently obsessed with the Farmers Market and ALL THE DELICIOUS THINGS. As you can tell from the photo, I’m also quite crazy about strawberries right now. $10 bucks for 6 baskets? I couldn’t pass that up!


Later in the afternoon, we went to Oldtown and  walked by the river . The breeze is always fantastic and it was just a beautiful day.


I don’t really get tired of this view. Do you?

These photos are actually from two weekends ago, when I went to my friend Susi’s daughter’s first birthday party. I forgot to share back then, but thought I throw them in here for good measure.


Other good things this weekend:

♥ reading ♥ stitching ♥  sleeping in ♥ phone date with my family ♥ “The Newsroom” ♥ iced coffee ♥ sparkling apple juice ♥ breakfast smoothies ♥ IKEA catalogue in the mail ♥ postcard from my parents ♥

How was your weekend?

  1. Awesome pictures and yes, that view is lovely. The Farmers Market is the BEST, isn’t it?
    I’ll keep my fingers crossed for more awesome weather days. ;)

  2. My weekend was fabulous. Lots of play, no work. Went to church and mini-golfing with my niece and nephew. And we discovered a new show…Orange Is the New Black. It was FAB!

  3. pretty sure our weather has flip flopped as it’s been in the 70s here and it’s been lovely.

    sounds like a wonderful weekend!

  4. A: I LOVED TED. Hilarious :)
    B: I need to find a German deli somewhere in London.
    C: Amazing how your friend’s daughter has more hair at 1 year old than my niece at 2.5 :)

  5. I want your farmer’s markets. I feel like some of the food at our farmers markets are twice as expensive as yours. I go to them from time to time to support the “grown local” movement, but certainly not because they’re better priced that the store.

  6. What gorgeous pictures. I am always jealous of your Farmer’s Market Pictures. :)

  7. Such lovely photos – one day I will come visit you!! And what a sweet little girl! xxx
