Saturday it was scheduled to be over 100 degrees in Davis and as I wasn't really made for the heat James and I booked it out of there as fast as we could. I truly do love Davis, but my skin was not made for the sun. I spent all last quarter biking in shorts to and from school and my legs are still chalk white, except for the occasional freckle. I fear the summer sun will someday permanently turn me pink.
On the way home we stopped in Sonoma to see the family and check up on all the animals, including the alpacas (they are getting a haircut Thursday). As James and I just booked a one bedroom apartment for fall we went consignment store shopping to look for unique household items. It was a successful trip. I pretty much wanted everything, but James and I limited ourselves to a fifty year old frame from Japan ($6). Although, now I am strongly regretting not buying the crystal wine glasses I cam across, which were $4 a piece. The frame reminds me of Sausalito, but most things do these days so I don't think that means much. I am thinking about painting San Francisco.
Once we reached our end of Mill Valley, Tamalpais Valley, we knew we were home. The fog had rolled in and we were basically wearing winter coats. However, the afternoons have been hot here in Mill Valley as well. Saturday, albeit not Davis weather, was definitly threatening serious sunburns and thus Imma and I decided to spend the day in an air conditioned theater viewing Prometheus. I love a good sci-fi horror, plus Noomi Rapace was in it.
While it was still semi-cool we went out for brunch down town Mill Valley at the Sweetwater Music Hall Cafe. Such a perfect little place. I bet it is fantastic at night when the music is live. I had this amazing avocado and scrambled eggs toast with lemon juice. It was so simple, but satisfying. I just had to make my own.
The toast is incredibly easy. After your toast is nice and warm and slightly crunchy layer it with avocado. Don't be shy with the avocado. Add the eggs, salt, pepper and a little bit of lemon juice. The end result is amazing. You will not regret making this. I think I might try adding some chives and smoked salmon next time.
At the end of my outing with Imma we decided to go shopping, always a deadly decision. I ended up getting an amazing leather bag, half off from Macy's. It is the perfect size. Small enough to keep close, but larger enough to keep a notebook for school, wallet, sunscreen and maybe a camera. I love the long strap because it is great for biking.
All in all it was a good weekend and a great way to recover from the worst week of finals ever! I learned my lesson about taking four science classes and a lengthy internship all in the same quarter. However, it was worth it and I will be doing it again in the fall. Let's pray for my sanity.
