Saturday’s Fruit Orgy

Seeing how much I love a good bowl of cereal (A Five-Bowl Meal), you’d think I’d have been to Kate’s Kitchen a bunch of times, but the truth is that I hadn’t eaten at this Lower Haight joint until just last week. And now, I plan on bringing this spot into my regular brunch rotation.

Closet Cleaning … and Greening

I love to pack for trips—it’s the unpacking that’s always a big drag. When I returned home from my holiday visit back East, I left my suitcase unzipped for a day. I opened it once to retrieve my toothbrush and toiletries, but closed it right back up. The next day I opened it but realized I had no empty hangers—or room in my closet—for anything new. Santa brought some clothing and accessories but I couldn’t fit them in my crammed closet. What’s a girl to do but take stock and clear out undesirables from her closet?
