Sunday we did get teased with some warm spring weather, so we took full advantage by heading outside to take care of a little yard work and potting projects we've been meaning to get to — more details on these coming this week.
While it was nice out, we headed up to Church Hill to take Basil to the dog park and while up on the hill, we stopped by Ardent Craft Ales:
The Ardent space is located directly behind the newly opened Sub Rosa Bakery, specializing in wood fired baked goods. They hand mill all of their own flour in the second part of the space that Ardent Craft Ales is using — we slipped in and left with some of the best pain au chocolat and salumi/cheese croissants we've ever had:
We both agreed it's a good thing we don't live up on the hill and have to make the drive to get goodies like these.
We also had time to fire up a big pot of chili and watch the Oscars last night. We were both so excited to see Searching For Sugar Man take the award for Best Documentary Feature since we'd just finished watching it and loved it so much. I'll admit, we haven't been out to see many more of the other films up for awards (we actually haven't been out to see a movie together in a theatre since we got Basil, ha), but had a long list to add to our Netflix queue after last night. Which ones have you seen that you'd recommend?
Speaking of documentaries we've recently watched and liked, we had a little bit of a marathon movie night on Friday and would recommend adding the following to your list to watch:
1. Jiro Dreams of Sushi
2. Ai WeiWei: Never Sorry
Have you seen one or both already? We particularly enjoyed Jiro Dreams of Sushi — it's one of those films that forces you to engage since the majority of it is in subtitles; nevertheless, it was a pretty amazing story.
