hello, february

In San Francisco, it already feels as though spring is here. This weather this weekend was soft and lovely- on Saturday, we drove out to the Legion of Honor and sat on the patio drinking coffee and basking in the morning sunshine.

Usually when we go to the Legion of Honor, we go to see some exhibit or other. Daniel has a membership and so we go fairly often for short periods of time. At the moment, they have Bernini's Medusa on display, which is something to see, but apart from that there's no big exhibit going on, so we spent our time checking out their collection of Rodin sculptures. When we'd had our fill, we left and drove up to Napa. We'd hoped to stop for lunch at the Fremont Diner, but it was closed due to some sort of electrical problem and so we pressed onward to the Oxbow Market.

We ended up lunching on various fancy tacos at C Casa- duck with spinach, bison with chipotle sauce, lamb with goat cheese- and then poked around some of the shops in the market. Daniel bought a very smelly chai tea mix and I picked up some sea salt and saffron. It was really the first time Daniel and I have had together, just the two of us, on a weekend, in a while. It made our time spent at the museum and at lunch feel particularly precious. Sometimes it's hard to believe how lucky we are to live where we do and to find such enjoyment in the activities available to us.
