Life Lately

Hello Friends!

The end of the school year is closing just like any other- with a flurry of activity and events! I’m so looking forward to summer, some fun trips planned, lots of sleep and working out hopefully! I’d love to get back on track with regularly working out, grading has taken a bit of a priority lately as I only have a few days left with my seniors.

So here is a quick view into what has been going on in the last few weeks.

I had our apartment handyman put up some shoe shelves for me, and my Type-A heart is so happy. I can see them all so I know what I haven’t work recently, and it’s wicked easy to put them back as I can quickly spot an open space on the shelf.

I went with O to the farmers market a week or two back and these strawberries were out of this world good and so bright in color.

I chaperoned a field-trip to Chinatown in San Francisco and we got dim sum and fortune cookies. So tasty!

My family has finally figured out how to make the best chilaquiles ever! Yum.

I just got back from a whirlwind weekend in Seattle for an amazing wedding to two cuties, so that post will be coming soon. How is your week going?




Fresh Picked Strawberries

On Thursday, my mum, Cathy and I went berry picking. We drove down to Gizdich Ranch, which is this charming pick your own farm in Watsonville that has tons of fruits. I have been there in the past and picked apples, but this time there were strawberries in season.

The strawberries were on the smaller side, but were juicy and full of flavor. It took all my control not to eat all of them! We picked until our hands were red and dirty, and we had picked in almost every row.

We ended up picking a ton of strawberries so that Mum could make some jam and we got a triple berry pie and gallons of fresh apple juice to take home. That pie was delicious!

Have you ever gone to a pick your own place? Any places you recommend I visit sometime?
