This weekend has been pretty awesome. I’ve gotten a lot of studying done for the inservice and I’ve also had a really fun time with Mechen, especially since he was gone during the week. He was at a conference in Panama City, FL which sounds like it went well AND he got to see his brother so that was great.
I’ve decided I’m only going to drink twice a week because even the “moderate” glass of wine or beer on weekday nights has slowly but surely caught up to my waistline. Since I’m not interested in that effect AT ALL, I’ve decided to drink only on the weekends at two meals- either two dinners, a brunch and dinner, etc.
So, Friday, we just hung out, ate a delicious soup that Mechen loves and split a bottle of 2007 Lake Sonoma Winery Cabernet Sauvignon. It was pretty tasty and a nice mellow evening.
Yesterday, I spent all day studying and, right at the point that I was hitting “crazy lady” level, I stopped, showered and got ready to go out with Mechen. It was one of the best date nights in awhile. Not that there are bad ones but the food was holy hell good.
We went to the Blue Ribbon Artisan Pizzeria in Encinitas. We walked along the beach to get there, although we had to go up the D St stairs since the tide was up to the rocks around the Swammi bend. We put our names on the list and grabbed a beer at the Lumbaryard. I had the beer of the month, an ale that was citrusy and flowery while Mechen had a Firestone ale. Both were good but it was mainly to pass time until we got our phone call. We were called about 25 minutes later and had seats at the bar. It is a tiny restaurant but the view at the bar was great since we got to look at the oven across the room.
