absent.

hi, remember me?

i'm alive!

i still have no computer so my online time has been VERY limited, and so that's meant no blogging.

it's been 3 weeks since i got here to san francisco, and i've loved almost every minute of it. we had really nice weather (upper 60s, i think it even hit 70 for a few days, and clear) the first week or so i was up here. unfortunately, it's really really cooled down this week and it's been quite chilly and rainy. oh well. welcome to the bay area, right? ha.

i've been having fun exploring the city as much as i can during my free time, and i still have plenty more to explore. i checked out a couple of SF guidebooks from the library to find some cool spots that aren't necessarily super-touristy, and i have a list of places to check out. i haven't been wanting to be home much lately since they're remodeling my place and it's noisy and dusty most of the day, so that gives me plenty of time :) now, if only it would stop raining!

of course, every day hasn't been perfect, and i have my moments of loneliness and homesickness...but for the most part, i've looooved being up here.

i had a lovely valentine's weekend, which ended up being a 4-day weekend for me :) the boy and i went to luna park for dinner (we went there for my birthday last year, and went back), where i proceeded to eat waaaay too much. you can't go wrong with the poke and the build your own s'mores there. mmmm. mario and jen were up here this weekend for v-day weekend, so i went to lunch with them yesterday. i wanted to take them to mama's because i haven't had that amazing french toast in forever, but the weather meant that i didn't want to stand in line for an hour in the cold, so that didn't happen. it was nice to see some people from home, though. today, the boy and i tried to drive up to jenner, a coastal town about 80 miles from here. the day started off nice and sunny and continued to be sunny until halfway there...eventually, it started to hail. the rain stopped while we were there, but it would've been soooo much nicer had it been sunny. oh well. had a good time anyhow :)

photos to come sometime when i can unload all of them off my memory card and edit them.

Glad to hear you're still loving your new abode! :) I'm still totally jealous, I love SF too! If it makes you feel any better, we've had lots of rain and even hail yesterday. Hope you get the precious back soon!
