My Weekend – 11.04.2013

Ah, now that Nano has begun, most of my weekend was like:

my Nanowrimo Life

But have no fear – I actually left the house, too. In between paragraphs.

And I made some awsome ultimate pad thai – seriously. I am still craving more pad thai.

On Friday we went to First Fridays in Venice. It’s when all the food trucks line up on Abbot Kinney in Venice and people mill about, tasting some truly gourmet edibles passed through the windows of trucks. Classic and tasty burgers (or chicken burgers for me!), a truly mobile street eat called a potato tornado, ice cream, churros, tacos and I even grabbed a huge container of siriacha fried rice. So yummy.

The Boy found Mexican Coca Cola (medio litro!) that tastes just like home (made with sugar not corn syrup)!

Saturday, the Boy bought himself a car. This has been months in coming. He’s so meticulous about finding the right thing, the right price, the right colour, age, etc. Anyways, he found everything but the colour he wanted – and this is his third car purchase since he was 17, and I think he did a wonderful job of it ๐Ÿ™‚

So quiet a ride …

We drove it up to Sherman Oaks, to our favourite pastry place, Natas, for a cappacino and a pastry in the sunshine.

And on Sunday the boy decided to race around the Streets of Willow, which was very windy, but real fun.

And that was my weekend!

  1. My weekend was amazing! I went up to Toronto to attend the ‘Reversed Polarity’ Doctor Who con, volunteered, went to some great panels, had a great time. Then a write-in on Sunday afternoon when I got back home. Yay for Nanowrimo!
