Monday Zen and other Unsure Things
Today I will be hopefully finishing one of my least favorite things - transferring my "data" from my old computer to my new computer. And learning what my new computer is all all about. At this point, "fiasco" is not too strong of a word.But first, I'll go out & take a few snapshots of LA
Oh, K, I don't envy you--well, the photographing part I envy, but not the computer transfer part I do. Once it's finished it'll be worth it. Are you changing platforms? (PC to Mac, for example?)
What a lovely photo.
Oh, and I'm getting my oil changed and going walking in Eagle Rock with The Evil One.
Morning - clean the house and plant some cosmos. Afternoon -clean the house. But evening time with friends and Janet Klein at the Coffee Gallery.
Karin, I took this photo soon after we emerged from the southern "off limits" part of the Huntington.Roberta, that sounds like a lot more than nothing!
No plan days are the best.But I am in pre-Pesach panic. Gotta track down every last crumb of bread etc. before a certain time tonight, you know. Monday morning the neighbors will be making a little fire to burn it.Pretty picture you have.Bon dimanche to you.
What I'd like to do: sit on that bench and read Blame by Michele Huneven, which someone's just given me. What I have to do: spring clean the deck and feed the plants.
Palm Sunday Peace Parade! You're all welcome to join in! http://theskyisbig.blogspot.com/2010/03/palm-sunday-peace-parade.html
Feeding/watering my big Shamel Ash tree in the front, cutting back the leggy camellias, weeding that big patch of birds of paradise - they're in a 50-foot triangle in the front sideyard and all the volunteers pop up in there.I also see some tax forms piled up on my drafting table...
inhaling the scent of blossoms;revisions; driving to OC for an early Passover.Still mentally living in Olive Kitteridge--
What a lovely scenery, Petrea. It seems very relaxing. Nice place to sit down, close the eyes and seize the sounds. I would like to be there now.
I never make plans, and this Sunday has gone....almost.
Such an interesting variety, and yes, now this Sunday has almost gone! Bellis, I'm reading "Blame." It's nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award and deservedly so. From what Desiree says, Elizabeth Strout may have to be my next literary discovery.
If I lived closer I would have spent the day sitting on this beautiful bench. Such a lovely photo. Instead I met my dad at Moe's Books in Berkeley (where he sells used books and has lots of credit so I happily walked away with a few free books) then had lunch at the cafe across the street that was featured in a scene of The Graduate. Now I'm making cinnamon chocolate gelato. Ooh and it's after 5 so I think I'll have a glass of wine and some peanuts.
Kevin, we used to use Fiascos at our house, but we got too many blue screens of calamity. Now we use Macs.
Love this photo! The bench adds a wonderful touch to the scene.Our Sunday: Long walk, reading, creative pursuits, household chores.Hope your Sunday was a good one.
Moe's sounds like my kind of place, Katie. Since I can't go there I'll settle for wine and peanuts.Mac people are so...Ms. M., yours sounds like a lovely day. Yes, thanks, mine was, too.
OH Petrea, this is a gorgeous shot my friend. That's some serious composition right there!V
Will I get to meet the Evil One?V
Hosted a 1st birthday party for thirty (30!) guests for my son Henry. Not a relaxing day, but a good one. And there is leftover birthday cake (flourless chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling) for my midnight snack/
I think the Evil One is Phoebe, so yes. Don't dress up.Gina, you deserve that cake. I hope you had some wine with it.
Glendora Mountain Road. I tried to do micro shots of Lady bugs mating. Hmmmm iffy
'Tis the season. I tried, but wasn't steady enough. Needed a tripod. They move a lot.
Are we talking SLOBBER?
