February 29, 2012: Leap Year

Today I am thankful for Leap Year.

I don't know why, I suppose it's the novelty. 
I wonder how many women will propose to their significant others today? Or how many babies will be born? It would be both fun and annoying to have a Leap Year birthday!

February 18 2012: Sloppy Seconds

Today I am thankful for the "sloppy seconds" man on Market Street.

I do not know his name, so I call him that. 
I have never spoken to him, but he speaks to everyone. 
We do not agree on much, but I look forward to seeing him none the less.

No trip to Union Square is complete for me if I do not hear the "sloppy seconds" man preaching nonsense the good word. 
He chants "Sex between a married virgin man and a virgin woman only. NO SLOPPY SECONDS!" repeatedly. I always look for him sitting on the corner and am strangely disappointed when he's missing. This time, I had Nick snap a picture. Apparently he wasn't very discreet. Busted.

February 12, 2012: Cookbooks

Today I am thankful for cookbooks. 

I'm not sure if I'll ever have enough. I found a fun cookbook filled with San Francisco restaurant favorites today and I have spent the last hour flipping through the pages, getting inspired.
I'm really feeling the cornmeal...polenta, biscotti, poundcake. Drool.

February 8, 2012: Rain Drops at Nght

Today I am thankful for raindrops at night.

A couple nights ago there was an unexpected rain storm that snuck up on the city just as I crawled into bed. The sounds of the rain on the roof and windows as I was snuggled up with a book was just perfection. The only thing better was waking up throughout the night to the sounds of the rain shower continuing.
Love that!
