california dreamin'

Though I returned to Philadelphia almost a week ago, I have been both busy and lazy since then and doing the best I can to adjust from vacation mode to life as I know and a city with it's final grip on winter. If I said I was having a hard time of it you may sympathize with me or perhaps scoff at such luxury problems. Either way I will still share with you here some highlights of my delightful escape west. I hope to hold on to that sunny San Francisco feeling at least as long as the substantial wheel of Mt. Tam cheese I flew home with lasts in the fridge. Though truth be told, it's disappearing fast. I suppose there is some small consolation in the fact that February is over in only one more day. Also, since I have been home I saw the first shoots of spring bulbs breaking their mighty green tips through my burlap winter garden cover. Hurrah!
up, up and away
