Escondido



Escondido is brilliant. Every Tuesday afternoon they close a section of Grand Avenue and have a little farmer's market. It is no Pike Place, but it is pretty cool. It is too hot to eat anything but salad, so it's perfect.

Our apartment has a large patio with yard. This means: 27 square feet of patio and a little strip of dirt. But... mint is growing randomly in the dirt, so that's cool.

Yesterday we went to a winery! I am shocked that Escondido has one, but it does. And it's pretty cute. Not fancy like Northern CA ones, but a nice eye-break from the chain stores of Escondido.

P.S. - Ken joined Costco! Can you believe it?

I am alright with you not having a picture. I'll just imagine it in my mind. You seem almost more excited for the winery than anything else Em. ;)

What? Costco? Well, Ken, I expect you to keep your eye on the culture while perusing the books in Costco. I know why you really joined. It's all about the books...

girl don't worry about not having pictures, it's cool. just like to hear what's going on. and you can always go to google images and find some pictures of wild mint...i know some people blog like that occasionally...

Sounds lovely Em, I'm going to have to visit, with the winery and all:) I just joined Costco too, so great! Actually, my boss bought us all business memberships. The folks at Costco listed Derek and I as spouses on the form... hmm, whatever it takes to get cheap food;)

I never thought I'd see the day that Ken joined Costco. Mom's probably right, it's all about the books.
*Russ- that's sketchy.

*Russ - that is sketchy, but funny. Ken and I actually joined with our friend Brian, and the people at Costco were looking at us weird. Maybe in Escondido... but not weird in San Francisco!
:)
:P
