Here is a formula for a long weekend: an island, a cabin, no computer, no internet, rain, wind, long walks on the beach, the sound of fire in the wood-burning stove, maybe a few films, and lots of reading. What do you think?
Do you think mini quick breads are fun? I think so. They are perfect as gifts! The batter for this recipe is baked in three small loaf pans. You can have three gifts with one baking!
After the big Thanksgiving feast on Thursday evening, Friday morning looked to be the perfect time for a long walk. Steve and I chose the unique Golden Gardens Park, located in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle.
These old Thanksgiving postcards, from the years 1907 through 1913, are from our collection that we inherited from one of Steve’s uncles. Yes, they are 100 years old!

While visiting Sacramento in the end of September, during the lunch breaks of the 9th International Food Blogger Conference, I got a chance to walk in the city. Besides enjoying the weather and the walk itself, I enjoyed the public art displayed along the streets.

“Have fun!” said my husband, as I headed to the precheck security line at SeaTac airport on a Thursday evening. I usually don’t fly alone, we like to have trips together, but this time I was going to have the weekend adventure on my own. It started immediately: I was pulled aside for a random check of my carry-ons, mainly my electronics. The tools of the trade. Everything was all right.
