My Weekend – March 24, 2014

This weekend I had a choice: I could stay home by my lonesome, hang out by the beach and farmer markets or join the Boy on one of his track weekends in Indio, CA.

I decided on the latter.

Indio CA is in the desert. Desert Center, according to my weather app.

The track itself is called Chuckwalla – after the Lizard – and it lies 45 min or so east of Indio.

It was perfect blue skies the first day.

I read The Vanishing by Wendy Webb, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and then started on The Strain.

Saturday night was cool, with a beautiful desert moon.

We went to an Italian restaurant in La Quinta.

Beautiful place. Great pizza.

Then it was up at 5am for another day on the track.

This time there were beautiful white streaks over the blue sky.

Helped with the heat.

Then, before I knew it, it was time to go.

So we went to the outlets along Hwy 10.

Lucky me.

I have been looking forward to some more good Le Creuset finds.

Sigh.

Pretty good weekend, overall.

Got to use my wide brimmed hat, sat out in the sun reading and spent time with the love of my life.

How was your weekend?
