For the most part, I’ve adjusted okay to pandemic life. Today I was thinking that there are a few things that I really miss. Things like this … Buying fresh flowers and fruits at the Farmer’s Market. A Sunday regular for me. Library and book store visits. Sure I’ve been reading books on my iPad and I’ve ordered a few books from my favorite bookstore but I miss browsing the aisles, the air condition and […]
These photos were taken on March 7, 2020. It was a mini pre-birthday outing with my sister. Dumplings at Din Tai Fung and mid-afternoon drinks and snacks at my favorite bookstore that had just opened up a wine bar. Books and drinks, I couldn’t wait to spend more time there. These are the last evidence of an “outing” before the world changed about a week later. A world-wide pandemic hit and everything changed. I’ve been […]
The windows are open but I can hear the rain coming down. It’s the first rain of the season. October has arrived and I’m so excited for this season. Carved pumpkins, leaves on the ground, cool days/cool evenings, misty mornings, Santa Ana winds, Halloween, costumes, scary movies, pumpkin spice and everything nice. I think this is going to be a season of change. I’m not sure if it will all be good but I’m ready […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Here’s a cute mushroom village for your Saturday enjoyment. Heart shaped. They remind me of the hobbit village in “Lord of the Rings”. Happy Saturday!
