Last Friday the weather report called for the last sunny day as a storm was coming in for Saturday and Sunday. Pablo and I filled the gas tank, stopped for an egg, potato and cheese burrito and drove ourselves down Hwy 1. Our first stop was a new Micheal's craft art store where I walked the aisles and picked up odds and ends. My favorite "find" was "Miracle Sponges" thinly compressed cellulose sponges, that expand when wet. What does that mean? I can cut my own shapes while it is flat...squares, circles and then use as a stamp when wet!! The total purchases came to $68 but I had a $25 gift card so I joyfully hauled my loot to the car.
Next we drove over to Carmel Beach to enjoy the sunset and breathe in some of the freshest ocean air. At the beach there were 7 big panel trucks filled with equipment and a film crew. Pablo nosed around but couldn't find out the movie, he did find out what the caterer was serving the crew..delicious looking steak with linen tablecloths on paper plates. We drove on to other scenic roads and then decided on clam chowder at the wharf...rich and creamy!
It's raining on and off as they predicted and I'm sure glad we grabbed the opportunity to spend a sunny day together...easy conversation, laughter and love. Tomorrow I will try out those sponges!
This afternoon we are going to a small Oscar party. I haven't kept up with the movies this year but I'm willing to see the beautiful gowns. She will be serving turkey chili with cornbread so it should be fun and cozy sitting around the TV.
