1. Spending five more days and nights with my girl and the little ones was definitely a blessing for me. Mostly, we prepped rooms and boxes for their move, but we also took time off to relax. Of course we had to shop for groceries. Here is Zoe's grocery list:
The reason this is a fave is because a year ago, she didn't know letters or sounds and certainly couldn't have written any words. I'm so very proud of her!
2. Every time I visit San Diego, I try to have one breakfast at The Mission Restaurant in East Village. The best granola in the world is served there.
The french toast is excellent.
And the coffee--I could go on and on and on about the coffee. I'm picky about my coffee. This was the best Americano I've had. ever. In fact, I ordered a second cup.
The little ones came with us and they waited patiently for their 'brunch'. Their mama knows how to keep them entertained with cars and leap pads.
4. I took the Amtrak train home which means -- beach views! I was sitting on the coast side but the windows were really dirty. And since I was on the later train, and since it was a 'coastal fog and low cloudiness' day, all my photos look a bit 'surreal'. Even so, they're beach pictures. And you can never have too many beach pictures. (These are especially for you, Kathie!)
5. When I stepped off the train, The Professor was there on the station platform waiting for me. That's the very best.
These are the five faves of Willow's Week. I hope you have taken a few minutes each evening to think about the day's blessings and be thankful.
