Spring Break is finally here! I’ve been so jealous of everyone else’s break waiting, some times not so patiently, for my own! Day one, we were local tourists up in the city. Our agenda was minimal, check out Britex fabrics–me, and ride a cable car. We were successful!
Our first stop after getting on the BART and heading up towards Union Square was the basement of Macy’s. I had to pee. This was the first of three stops I made, thank goodness I wasn’t dehydrated! Macy’s had several live floral arrangements throughout the make-up sales areas. I loved these flower balls. They were gorgeous.
Next, I spent several minutes browsing Britex while Eric looked for tri shoe laces and checked out the Virgin Megastore going out of business sale. We both left without purchases. I am trying to find material for this Ralph Rucci Vogue Pattern 1073. Here’s a better view. I’ve settled on a stretch sateen fabric, but have no clue on what color I want. Finding anything stretch, 60″ and of a quality I like is proving quite difficult. I’ve got so many other sewing projects in the works, that I don’t mind shelving this for a bit.
We then rode the cable car down to fisherman’s wharf to eat some clam chowder in a bread bowl. We’d never before ridden a cable car or tasted clam chowder in a breadbowl, so the experience was quite fun for the both of us!
Our next stop was walking towards the other cable car line to take us back up Powell to where we could catch the BART. We remembered a wine tasting room in the Ghiradelli square area, and checked it out. We decided to split a bottle and people watch. It was a lot of fun and the perfect way to spend such a beautiful afternoon.
I sure am glad Lent is over so I can imbibe once again–though I must admit I did “cheat” three times. I did stay away from sodas, and plan to continue that. My body definitely is much happier without artificial sweeteners and sodas.
I’m planning on taking a blogging/internet break for the rest of Spring Break week. Enjoy the sunshine and Spring!
