Rain, rain, where are you????????  You promised!!!  According to the weather report, there is 0% chance of rain by 1 pm, but 90% chance by 2 pm.  Fast moving "storm", I'd say.  We'll see how that goes.

ETA @4:15 pm:  Oh, hey, I guess it's started...Well, I mean, I think they will call this mist "rain"... STORM WATCH 2012!! Hahahahahahaha!

Well, the weekend sure went quickly.  

We went to see The Descendents Friday night, which was good.  Intense, but good.  I didn't realize it was as serious as it turned out to be, but it was very human, too, and quite funny in parts.

Before the movie we had dinner at a new veggie restaurant near the theater.  I  am pretty excited, I must say.  Veggie restaurants are not that easy to find, and we go to this indi film theater fairly regularly.  Don't know how long this one will last.  I can only hope for the best.  It did take the place of a Pizza Nova and people are a little mad about that.  But, if PN were doing that well, wouldn't it have stayed open?  (I will miss the salad I always got there, though; it was yummy.) Anyway, my dinner was scrumptious.  Veggie-stuffed quesadilla with salad.  Yum.  It's cool because at this place there are a ton of veggie choices and just a few meat-eaters' choices...nice to have that kind of menu when I'm so used to menus where there are only a couple veggie choices...veggie burger, salad, and maybe a veggie broth based soup, if I'm lucky.  Oh, and sometimes pasta with marinara sauce or maybe a cheese pizza...tired of those choices! So, yay!

A few weeks ago, I remember now, I sprinkled a seed packet in some of the pots out on the patio, and promptly forgot about doing it.  When I checked out there recently I saw that something was sprouting...that was when the vague memory popped up.  But, I will tell you, for the life of me I could not remember what exactly it was that I thought I was planting...until the other day.  I was out there again, poking around, and saw something that made me dig (haha) deeper, and, lo and behold I give you:

It was delicious. And there are at least a hundred more =-)

Now, I am off to the grocery for taco fixins.  I guess I must be hungry.

It's tulip time in the grocery store again!  I'll be buying these lovelies every chance I get until they are out of season. We don't grow them well here, our winters are neither cold enough nor long enough.

We had a birthday celebration here recently.(ETA: it was DD's, not mine.  But, thanks!) Pizza, pink cake, pink ice cream, family game night, lots and lots of laughing.

Tomorrow evening I will be headed out to watch/listen to DS perform at a local beach pub.

Lovely, simple pleasures.
