A freak heatwave in the Bay Area. The rest of the country is half-buried in snow, and we were sweating with temps in the 70s all weekend long.

Hot February Day

It was so gorgeous on Saturday, my friend and I grabbed sandwiches and a bottle of white wine, and headed to Dolores Park to enjoy the weather, spending about a full hour outdoors before retreating back inside to hide from an unusually bright sky. There's something luxurious about sweating on the grass and taking big swigs from a chilled bottle in the middle of February.

Friday night I attended a girls' night dinner party at a coworker's house, and wonder if maybe I showed a bit more of my personal, non-office self than had been expected. But it was good to see one of my old graveyard peeps, and catch up on the shift that still has a little piece of my heart. (I still feel a little like a traitor, becoming a daywalker.)

And I should be writing right now, but am too hot and a bit too tipsy from Claire's Chandeleur party to focus. Half considering buying a netbook just so I can work on my writing in my off moments at the office, before Krav, while out with my friend, on the bus.

A little all over the place about this weekend. It was both incredibly long and way too short.

Man, those are the days you just love the bay area.

And swiggin' from the bottle is classy. I am from Northern CA, the land of Napa so darn it, it's true!
