Weekend Recap

What a nice weekend here in Baltimore. No work. All nice weather. Nothing to do but roam our fair city and let the wind carry us.
On Saturday, Phil and I (having been tipped off by my friend Annie) drove to Fells Point and ate a late breakfast at Bonaparte Bakery on South Ann Street (right on the water). If you've never been there, as we hadn't, you're in for a delicious french baked treat. We each had chocolate and almond croissants and coffee (mine was decaf, for the record). Then we took a long stroll on the boardwalk and watched the houseboats and trash floating gayly together.

Sunday was a day of lazy brunch with my good pal Angie. During which she convinced me to try embroidery. So we drove to our local craft store and picked up supplies, and went home. I spent Sunday afternoon watching The Rainman and making the above dishtowel (that's a Bolex camera I found a photo of online) for Phil. On embroidery: I could get into this! While I find that my impatience usually gets the best of me with most needle-oriented crafts (sewing, knitting, crocheting, cross stitching) I either found the right one this time, or Dustin Hoffman just always needs to be present when I'm feeling crafty. Either or.

Happy Monday.
