Today we went to San Francisco’s Japan town. It was fun. Erik had been wanting to go for a long time, mostly for matcha stuff. We had lunch there, and it was pretty good, not at our usual place On the Bridge but a new place, a noodle shop–I forget the name. Erik would know, but I can’t ask him because he’s not here: he’s at his zendo for a dharma talk being given by his teacher Myo Lahey.
At the Kinokuniya stationary store I got three postcards and a green pen. Afterwards we stopped in Berkeley for Acme bread. For Erik we got a loaf of Pain au Levain. I wanted an apple turnover, but they were all out: instead I got a Cinnamon Swirl, which was excellent. Erik got a Pain au Chocolate. This was a conservative Acme trip because we needed to keep $4 for the toll home.
I have a dentist appointment at 9:30 tomorrow (I’m a little scared) and plan to garden early beforehand.
