Massive sheets of rain gusting and falling down floor-to-ceiling glass windows. White bordeaux. Oysters, anchovies, and a white pizza with gorgonzola, mascarpone, pine nuts, and rosemary. A visit from Browse and Shelley. Magical neighbors at the bar; Tom Ammiano celebrating his final swearing-in as supervisor upstairs. Finishing Walk on Water. A decadent piece of chocolate gateaux from my rad waiter.
An evening alone with Russell. Thinking good birthday thoughts for Patrick from the candlelit living room. More rain.
A clean house. The last of the holiday detritus cleared away. Two kinds of soup (celery/celeriac with coriander, and cauliflower fondue.) Pasta with fresh tomatoes and basil, a smiley talky baby, and my best girl. A drink with my dad. (I'm such a daddy's girl.)
And a few solid night's sleep. Bliss.Posted by shock at January 10, 2005 07:02 AM
