my favorite part of working here is walking the dogs on chrissy field. we are always the center of attention. people want to know what kind they are and they constantly make new friends with people and dogs alike. you take your life in your own hands if you let them smell your treats.

I love breakfast. i love the mix of sweet and savory, say pancakes and eggs or other combination. i love starting my day with something warm and filling. i love conversation as a day begins. yet, i've walked by bechelli's many times without stopping. it has everything going for it but with so many delicious morning options i had not tried it yet.

ships have always struck a cord with me. I read a great book as a girl called The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle. Its about a british girl who crossed the Atlantic in a ship and learns how to sail and gets caught up in the drama of a boat run by a cruel captain. the drama and salt air are intoxicating.
i love the idea of traveling the open seas by the stars and the storms that make you realize how small you really are.
on sundays small sailboats fill the bay.
steam cargo ships chug through every evening when i walk the dogs.
when i went to camp we sailed in sail boats and almost drowned, atleast dumped the boat over, multiple times.
ships are the most romantic form of travel i know and i hope to sail in one soon.

Today was excellent. I acquired a pass to attend the Fancy Food Show, which filled the Moscone Center with delicious, Specialty delights. I tried cheese with whisky in it, I don't know how they did it but it was excellent, lattes from an italian barista with art on the top, chocolates of all kinds and I bought a siphon pot. Its the best way to brew coffee, its a form of vacuum brewing that allows the true flavors to be revealed. Not to mention that its just fun to do.
The grounds are placed in the top and the water in the bottom, Once it starts boiling the water is pulled up into the grounds and brews for 60 seconds. When it is removed from the boiler the coffee comes back through the filter and into the pot, ready to be enjoyed. Yum.

One of my favorite places in San Francisco, hands down, is the Ferry Building Farmer's Market. Its an excellent example of California farmer's and excellent food, coffee, sweets and other goodies. They even have an independent bookstore. My favorite food location is Primavera, its a delectable take on fresh Mexican food and Boulette's larder with the best selection of every spice you'd ever need. Blue Bottle goes with out saying as the best coffee in the place but you'll have to wait in line. Its worth it. The cappuccino is unbeatable and their standards on buying etc are uncompromising.
Wandering this area is the best way to enjoy a Saturday morning.
