We purposely made no social plans for the weekend, as we both needed some down time. This time of the year in the desert is beautiful. It has cooled down to the 70's, so there is a sense of fall (though we will be back in the mid 80s by Wednesday). The golden morning light always reminds me of Italy, and flowers that bloom in spring everywhere else, are in full splendor now.
We made a Costco run, watched movies, (finally saw "The Bucket List"), napped, and I did a jigsaw puzzle I was given last Christmas!
Meals were simple. We had a salad bar dinner, went out on Saturday, and had leftovers on Sunday. My only kitchen time was spent on our coconut ice cream and cupcakes!
Saturday, we did some shopping. I hit a great Talbots sale, and we bought a couple of kitchen toys at Williams-Sonoma.
The next few weekends will be busy and hectic, so we thought we'd take a break while we could!
One of our finds at Williams-Sonoma was a drink mix called "The Remedy". It is a blend of lemon, ginger and honey. Just add vodka or gin. It was a lovely way to relax on Sunday night.
