Another weekend in San Diego and I’m starting to feel a bit boring with these, “I’m in Paradise, 65 degrees in the Winter, send help, just kidding!” updates. This will change with this upcoming weekend where SMS and I will take a four day extended weekend to an exciting out-of-town destination. Clickbait, clickbait!
So, we were in San Diego this weekend since I was on call. It was quiet but I still have to be around. On Friday, my work day ended early after I went to the Del and supported the NMCSD residents in the quiz bowl where they did really well. I read during the afternoon and picked up SMS in the evening.
The next day, we lazed around and went out to the Henry for breakfast. Later, we went to Point Loma Seafoods for a late lunch preceded by some errands. Since I’m still on my no fun diet, I would like to go back to both of these places. Holsem had some delicious breakfast options that were still quite healthy while at Point Loma Seafoods, I would like to get the less healthy fried halibut sandwich with tarter sauce. It is excellent but I have not had one since coming back to SD.
For dinner, I made a scallops dinner that was quite delicious. For sides, I made mashed sweet potatoes and kale salad.
Sunday was a little more active. I did some yoga in the morning, followed by a coffee stop at Holsem in North Park. Afterwards, we went to Mesa Rim for a couple hours of climbing. I felt a little short on endurance but I felt like I did a good job. Dinner was pan-seared halibut (2 min each side) followed by 3 minutes in a 450 degree oven. The fish was perfectly cooked, although slightly over-salted. Always room for improvement!
On Monday, I went to work while SMS stayed home and teleworked. The birds were excited and buzzed his head a few times. After work, we went for a walk and saw a gorgeous sunset, which was fleeting- the sun sinks so quickly! Then we went to Leroy’s for an early dinner followed by a trip to the airport for SMS to return to the Bay Area.
In other news, I am finishing up a yoga challenge with Tim, my SoCal yoga buddy whom I don’t know but I like his teaching style. I fell behind two days but as of tonight, I’m caught up! Someday when I’m up in Newport, I’d like to go to one of his live classes. I’ve really enjoyed this month and feel a lot more mobile in my upper back, which had started to really tighten up. So, yes, definite benefits!
