home again, home again, jiggity jog.

i have a headache. it could be because i start my period tomorrow. it could be because i’m at work. or, it could be because i just got of the phone with my mom. most likely, it’s a combo of all three.

i had a great weekend with jacarandabush. we met up on the central cost in a darling little beach town. we stayed at the sea otter inn, right on the shore. it was foggy and cool when we got there, which was so great since it has been so hot where both of us live. friday night we had dinner at al ittle place down the road from our hotel. we sat outside watching the water. the place gave everyone blankets so no one was cold. it was so cute.

we slept in late saturday and headed into the town where i went to college. it was so great to go back, but i felt so old! we were called ‘mam’ a bunch, which was really odd, especially since we both look really young. i guess we don’t look 19-years-old-young anymore, though. we really helped out the local commerce with all the money we spent and were beat by the time we got back to our hotel.

but before we went to our hotel, we wandered up the coast a bit and checked out the elephant seals. if you haven’t seen one before, they’re quite the sight to behold. they are huge, enormous seals that hang out on the central coast. they make funny noises and throw sand all over each other.

we decided we were too lazy to go out to dinner, so we ordered in pizza to our room. it wasn’t that great, but it was cheap and easy. on sunday, jacarandabush got up at the asscrack of dawn but let me sleep in, which was so great of her. we finally headed out about 10 and went into town and had english tea at a proper tea house. it was quite loverly. we took another walk along the shore before hitting the road.

oh, i almost forgot. when we got back into town on saturday, we wandered by an antique store, where i purchased my first piece of art. you see, there is a gallery i grew up going to called the huntington library. i have been there a ton of times and fell in love with two of the pieces. pinkie and blue boy. they are by two different artists at two different time periods but are across from each other in the same gallery. anyhow, i found this giclee print of pinkie and i knew i had to have it.

so you see, i am quite pleased with my purchase. i just don’t know where i am going to put it, or for that matter, how i am going to break it to hubby. (i left it in my car when i got home yesterday because i was too tired to take it inside). i am so glad i got away and feel so refreshed. i must get to the coast more often!

i still have a gnarly headache and i am trying to will it to go away. i have to go to costco after work to get everything for hubby’s party this weekend. i just want to go home and nap! ah, well, at least it’s already 4:30!

    Ah man…I want to go to the beach, so bad! Glad you had a good time.

    My sis ran into some people on their drive home yesterday who were moving from SLO to Virginia. They had CA plates, so she just started talking to them!

    And I totally know what you mean about feeling old going to campus now…I hate that! I get mad at all the punks getting in my way, and then I realize that I was that punk only 10 years ago! =)
