Coffee Shop Adventures / Observations

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 […]

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, […]

It’s Sunday today. It’s also way too hot for my comfort level, so on this toasty Sunday, I tried to keep cool by hanging out in air conditioned spaces. First stop, the Pasadena Museum of California Art It’s the Kosmic Krylon Garage by Kenny Scharf .¬† They have a really cool space where you can make your own piece of art related to their current exhibition. This one caught my eye. If you are ever […]

Last week I started my vacation or should I say staycation. I was itching to go somewhere, so we took a nice day trip to the beach town of San Clemente. I guess you could say I kind of fell in love. The surf report for the day looked pretty swell. Just kidding, I have no idea what any of this means other than surfers should use caution. I did sit on the pier and […]

Summer Bucket List

Lists / Summer

Summer is just around the corner, although it’s been feeling more like November with all this June-gloom. Either way, I’m ready to start thinking about what I want my Summer to look like so I made a bucket list. Do you ever go overboard with “to-do” lists? I do, especially when they come from daydreams and wishful thinking, so I tried to keep this a bit more realistic. Here we go! Work on my resume. […]
