San Francisco, Open Your Golden Gate
After Scrap, we drove back toward home, then I treated Auntie M to lunch at the Pasta Primavera Cafe, where the service was horrible, and the food delicious. I left no tip. Then I took her to the library book give-away, and she found a lot she wanted, and I found some good ones too. I got several Georgette Heyer, and Dorothy Stevenson novels. I also got one for Jason by the author of Andersonville, and he was pleased to get it. Back home again, I tackled the rest of the food, rested, then went on to Joel's party. Evan did a most excellent job on the tri tip, and Auntie M made the baked potatoes half in the microwave, and finished up in the oven. Turned out very well. Her method interested me, I don't know why since I don't have a microwave.
Talked at length with Alex about his classes at the SF Academy of Art College. He is very enthusiastic and loving it. Doing color theory now which he says is very hard. I don't know why people find it hard, color is easy. He forgot his portfolio, but showed me his sketch book. He says it is super being in the city up on the top floor of a tall building with windows all around in a life drawing class. I think he likes the excitement and tempo of the city. He is still working in the law firm doing the visual forensics. It was nice to see him so happy.
Now I am back from church and ready to start my vacation properly by making a mess.
