Fun

I had a fun weekend.
So S and I have been kinda settling into a routine. Other than work, we had fun last weekend at the Sacramento Second Saturday Art Walk, have made plans to meetup with some couchsurfing.com peoples of Sacramento, and I did some volunteer time bagging at the Coop. Last Wednesday, after I returned from bagging, we did some cooking then Thursday (of last week) we headed for the Bay Area, where I went to the Claremont Resort (here) again for the annual brunch with R, J, E, D, and K enjoying a medley of foods (most of which I didnt sample):
