Last night I had the pleasure of attending the launch party for the fabulous new magazine Anthology
Today was my birthday, so my turn for birthday breakfast of choice. I asked T. to make me pop-overs, and he did a fabulous job (helped along by a birthday present from my best friend, a pop-over pan.) They were amazingly delicious.
We spent the last two days at the beach (a quick birthday get away,) and the weather was thoughtful enough to be perfect for me today.
Back home tonight my parents came over for Thai food and champagne and birthday cake.
I’m really looking forward to this next year in my life. For one of the first times ever I truly have a sense of everything falling into its place. Life is good.
Lisa Congdon’s show opening at Candystore on Thursday was great – the shows up for at least another month, so next time you’re in the Mission stop by and check it out. I especially loved the giant branches she painted on the wall.
Last night (Friday) I saw one of my favorite musicians play my favorite ever song (first one on the video) at one of my all time favorite venues. Throw in some free apples and it doesn’t get much better than that.
Today there are lots of small things to get done around the house, the farmer’s market to go to, some errands to run. Annie Galvin’s new show, “Better Go in Disguise” is opening at The Salon is tonight, and promises to be great, followed by a birthday party for one of my oldest friends. I’m working on several projects this weekend, hopefully I’ll have pictures to share of at least one of them by Sunday . . .
And school! It’s been great so far, thanks to all of you who’ve asked. Life in general is good right now, things are really settling into place. There’s a feeling of coming full circle, of things making sense in a way I wasn’t expecting. It’s pretty nice.
I’ll be at both of these events tonight, if you’re in the area come check them out (if you spot me come and say hi, I’ll be the one taking a million pictures with the huge camera I carry around.) I’ll post highlights on Saturday.
Feria Urbana – 5-9pm at the Oakland Museum. An “urban fair made up of local artists and designers.” Should be good.
Modern Economy was lovely (if crowded) this morning. Note for next time: getting there 15 minutes after start time means things are already fairly picked over. Despite this, I manage to make it home with a few new things for the kitchen.
The high-tea baby shower I threw on Sunday went really well, if I do say so myself. Click here to see more pictures.
