Woooowheeee just got back from a major adventure. But first, here’s how my day began, per usual:
So, I totally need a desk but as of right now all I have in my empty living room is: a big world map on the wall, a quilt in the middle of the floor and a folding green chair. Said green chair has turned into dining room table/blogging station. Soon I plan to get a fold out couch and a desk but right now…..it’s all about the green chair. And the oatmeal.
- 1/2 cup oats with 1/2 cup water + 1/2 cup soymilk
- 1/2 banana
- dried cherries
- pumpkin butter
- sea salt
- almond butter
Made some stroooong french press to go and headed to the farmer’s market downtown. Honestly, wasn’t too impressed….it was SO expensive! Did take some nice photos though.
I didn’t buy anything and then when I got home, Hardy called to see if I wanted to accompany him up to Alexander Mountain to take some photos. And so it began.
I wanted nothing more than to climb this tree. I LOVE BEING OUTSIDE!!!
Unfortunately I couldn’t wrap my mind around how to hoist myself up the tree (with a sprained ankle, mind you) and climb it. It was sort of falling apart. Booo
We totally made it all the way to the top (via car) and landed in Mercuryville…..population 2, baby. How awesome is that?
Just a new friend.
Anyways, we totally went a taaaad farther than we anticipated and ended up almost in Mendocino county after going through miles and miles of unpopulated (except for mountain lion, deer and Mercuryville) terrain. The gas light was on and grapes were rationed for snacks.
Nevertheless, we DID make it down the mountain and naturally ended up at Diavola, an awesome pizza place in Geyserville. Naturally, we toasted to our adventure with Prosecco.
And ordered a radicchio salad with sweet corn and shaved parmesan to split, which was awesome:
And a margarita pizza!
GREAT pizza. Everything about this was pretty much perfect and I have to say, the Prosecco went perfectly. Hardy and I are both huge foodies and lunch conversation went as follows: “what are your thoughts on truffle oil?” and “what’s the best food to pair with Riesling?” (I don’t want to hear any comments about “how I should really date Hardy” though please. Just to clarify a little bit: Hardy has a long term girlfriend and we are just friends. I have lots of friends that are guys. Thank you!)
Finally made it home after what ended up to be four hour California adventure across mountains, through streams, up trees and ending with prosecco and pizza. Not bad.
I have some house cleaning to attend to, some yoga to attempt to do (being careful with my ankle!) and then tonight I’m heading over to a new friend’s house for dinner. I hope everyone has had a great Saturday!
