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 […]
“Don’t wait for someone to bring you flowers. Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul”. Luther Burbank
Do you ever have one of those moments where you wish you could live over again? I guess everybody does. It’s part of human nature. A couple of weeks ago, I met up with my best friend from high school in San Diego to see one of our favorite bands in concert. Hearing the band sing songs that represent such an important time in my life and being there with my friend of almost thirty […]
I can’t get enough of these flowers. I don’t know their official name but I just call them yellow buttons. I guess I’ll just have to buy some more this week.
A couple of things I can cross off my summer bucket list, got back into the pool and I’ve been doing lots of reading. I should share those reads soon. Other then that it’s been a busy, busy, hot, hot and very low key summer.
Do you have those type of days were you just want to hide from the world. Sit in a room, eat junk food and just rest. I haven’t had one of these days in a really long time but today is just one of those days I don’t want to be an adult. Tomorrow is a new day and I’m looking forward to a fresh start.
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!
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 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 […]
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 […]
