Three Day Weekend

This week I happen to have Friday, Saturday, and Sunday off. It's so nice. Brian had yesterday off too. So we went to San Francisco for lunch. There's a little street called Belden Alley that has nothing but great restaurants on it. They all have outdoor seating and there are white lights strung across the alley so it's very romantic and lovely. We chose Belden Taverna since we hadn't been there before. Yum! I had Chipotle Pappardelle pasta. Brian had Halibut. It was such an indulgence to have a bottle of wine and sit outside in the San Francisco sunshine.

I've also had some time to knit on my Socktober socks.

Stripey Socks So Far

They're coming out really neat. I turned the heel on the first one yesterday. Maybe I can finish it up this weekend but we'll see. There's a birthday party and a 49er game to go to in the next couple of days.

Hope you're having a great weekend too!

The sock is gorgeous! Love the colors!

I love all the restaurants on Belden Alley and how they are just tucked away :) Hope you are enjoying your 3 day weekend!

I had a 3-day weekend too, but by accident - everyone cancelled home visits for Friday!
Those socks will be great and cheerful to wear in wintertime, when it's so gray outside....but maybe it's not so gray in CA?

Those socks will certainly cheer you up when needed.
I took Monday off too. Great minds think alike. Have fun at the game and enjoy the extra day off. Go 49ers!

I absolutely adore the colors on those socks! So cheerful!

We had a nice little dinner experience this weekend, too, but with a pitcher of sangria in the unseasonably warm October weather here in NY.

Fun sock colors. You go! Loved the cutey pie picture of your hubby early in his life.
Your declutter plan into october sounds so admirable!
I too may have to scrounge up some couch cushion cash for the book sale at Knitpicks. OR leave big hints for Holdiay gifts around the house this week. Hmmmm, that sounds best. No guilt for me!
NO need to return to me with a message, now or ever! I just like to leave comments. :)

Love the way the socks are turning out. Once again, GREAT colors.

I can't remember the last time hubby and I sat out on a terrace watching people walk by and drinking wine. (or no wine). Maybe when my kids are old enough to stay home alone we can do that type of thing again! LOL
