Weeks in Pics: October 27-November 2, 2014
Giants winning the World Series and Halloween Week – what more could one ask for! My week started out slow but I was goofy-tired and giddy from all the excitement by the end of the week.
M O N D A Y: Everyone at work was nervous and excited about the World Series. Many conversations ended with “Go Giants!”:)
Bags of cookies from La Boulange kept on appearing in our suite staff room. These little goodies made the work day sweeter.
T U E S D A Y: Giants – Royals 0-10! Sad day in the Bay Area.
W E D N E S D A Y: An enjoyable lunch with Kai at Four Seasons Vietnamese restaurant. Good food and an hour of girl-talk. Thanks for listening and for the pleasant company, Kai! 🙂
Nail-biting, anxiety-inducing playoffs. And the WINNERS are —-the SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS!
T H U R S D A Y: More cookies appeared in our staff room. Thanks, generous co-workers!
F R I D A Y: Rain! Finally!
Giants celebration parade on Friday. I am fortunate enough to be invited to a World Series celebration party and watch everything from a comfortable venue with a great view.
A cozy and quiet Halloween with the BF. Just like our yearly tradition, we spent our Halloween watching scary movies and having a spread while waiting for trick or treaters. We watched “Halloween 2” and “Ghost Adventures” and noshed on shrimp cocktail, sushi and roast beef sammie. Did not get many which was what I wished for since I was beyond exhausted from all the excitement. The little trick or treaters were cute, though. More candies for me! 🙂
S A T U R D A Y: Fun date night at SOMA Streat Food Truck Park in SF. Finally able to try the Bacon Bacon Food Truck (the chocolate-covered bacon did not disappoint) along with Kokio Republic, El Calamar, Firetrail Pizza and Bobcha.
S U N D A Y: Church with the family. An edifying worship. Lunch at the church potluck where I stuffed myself with pancit (Filipino noodles) and ginataan (fruits in coconut milk). Watched the Niners lose to Rams! Ouch! Took my parents grocery-shopping. More persimmons from my aunt’s tree.
Definitely an exhausting but super-fun and busy week. Thankful for life’s celebrations and grateful for the worship and message that made my soul feel strong. Now looking forward to the solitude of fall before the mad rush of the holiday season.
