It’s pretty hot. So I’m staying indoors today. I did go out to get some iced coffee and came across this mural. I just really, really liked it. I miss just having time to wander and taking time to look at things that may seem mundane to some people. Stay cool!
As the Sunday passed, I had to do something I haven’t done in a long while… sit and read. No rush, nothing to get to, no distractions. Just me, my book and my ipod and the backyard. The sun began to sink and the wind had a cool breeze. The laundry was dry. The sheets were clean. The sun was still bright but the shadows started to show their wings. New sheets being cleaned for […]
Wow, it’s been a long time. It’s been a dosey of a year both personally and professionally. It’s all good now. I really thought about whether or not I wanted to keep this space, but didn’t want to leave it yet, so I’m back! Speaking of new seasons, Summer has officially arrived and so far I’m loving it. New season means a new “bucket” list. So here it is and I can’t wait to cross […]
Here’s a few things that went down. I started another painting class. The pumpkins arrived. Happy hour with my sister on a weekday. A visit to the Mystic Museum. Coffee. Onto November!
It’s no mystery that I love going to coffee shops to enjoy lattes, read, write and eavesdrop. Just kidding, I don’t always eavesdrop but I love people watching at coffee shops. I particularly like going on Mondays (when I happen to have the day off) because it’s a bit of a different crowd. It’s the retiree crowd, the student crowd who are working on projects or meeting up with others in their class, the moms […]
It’s been hard for me to keep this space up the last few months. Summer was hard. Not sure why but I was just not motivated to do much. However, I did… Explore a little teeny-tiny bit. Drink margaritas. One of my favorite summer drinks. Go camping at the beach. Now I’m ready to drink lots of coffee and enjoy all that the new season has to bring.
It’s August! Where did the time go? I had all these plans this summer but I’ve pretty much been sitting around trying to stay cool. I’ve been a summer bummer. The one thing I have been excited about is my paint class. I’ve never taken a paint class, maybe in college but I think I dropped out. Anyhoot, it’s been fun. I’m not that great, but I don’t care. I’m there to learn and experiment. […]
It’s Sunday and today was HOT, super toasty, humidity way to much humidity. However, things still need to get done. Here’s Sunday. Oh wow, the morning sky. Just wow. Noticed this nice color combo while out on a walk. This color combo at the Farmer’s Market. The carrots also look so good. This coming Tuesday would have been my Mom’s birthday, so we wanted to buy some pretty flowers to take to the cemetery. These […]
Hello! To those in the U.S.A., Happy 4th of July. I hope you are enjoying your day with friends, family, delicious food and a pool or beach. Me, I’m keeping it indoors today then am going to a friends house to watch fireworks later. Here are some things I’ve been up to and places I’ve visited this past week. Went to the Vanilla Bake Shop and enjoyed their delicious coffee and scrumptious sea salt and […]
After our San Clemente visit, we made our way to San Juan Capistrano. Such a cute little town. Wanted to eat here but it was aleady closed. Boo! It’s right off the Amtrak train tracks. There is a nice adobe house with some pretty gorgeous cacti trees. It gives you a bit of the history of the city. Gorgeous! There is a nice little neighborhood by the train tracks. It’s a mix of residential, cafes, […]
