Monday Zen and other Unsure Things
Something I don't do everyday? Well, that leaves out reading a great new book!I'd like another week at the beach, a warm one so that would require a airplane trip. no?I give up. I think I'll go bake something yummy
Take a break from all the stress that some family member has caused... and since I believe in Karma, the person who has caused it will get his in the end... and yes, lol, maybe that end as well....oops...
Well, given the weather here this afternoon is so miserable, I'm off back to bed!
Every Friday afternoon my husband and I share a cappuccino at Intelligentsia Coffee in Old Town Pasadena. Yes, it's one of those teeny tiny cups of cappuccino, and somehow that makes the whole thing much better -- the fine art of savoring each sip of that luscious brew. This is what I fondly refer to as "a poor person's date". All things considered these days, we have to watch our pennies. So, one cappuccino for the two of us, and life is grand. It has become a Friday ritual that makes my heart smile. Life is full of enchanting moments if only we look for them. :) Your blog is always full of enchanting things! I love where you take us. Happy Friday to us all!
BD, a book a day! You are phenomenal. I'm lucky if I get in 25 pages. Enjoy your cupcakes/cookies/whatever it is I'm missing out on!KBF, for you I prescribe a massage or some yoga, something to help you let it go. Not so easy, I know.Geoff, you've got the right idea!Leslie, what a lovely idea--but "lovely" isn't a good enough word, so I'll borrow yours: enchanting. You may see me and John at Intelligentsia soon! Thanks for your kind words.
I'd take a nap under a tree in the Arroyo.
I would get a manicure and pedicure while reading trashy magazines!
I like both of those. It's a little cold today, so I'll save my Arroyo nap for summer. Or maybe I'll fall asleep while having a manicure and pedicure.
My break today was getting up late, staying in my pj's...a little tv...some computer...a cat in my lap...it's been a rough week and I'm glad to be home...
My idea of a break would be to take a long walk with the dog in the higher San Gabriels, hopefully not meeting another human the whole way. Peace, perfect peace. Thank you for never taking a break from PDP, it's a treat every morning.I've never looked closely at a dead silk floss flower before - it's a bit like a discarded ballerina's dress.
I like going to museums
Chieftess, I'm sorry you had a rough week. When I've had a rough day (or even half a day), home is the best break of all.Bellis, I didn't know what kind of flower it was. Thank you. It was simply lying on the coffee counter at the entrance to the Huntington gardens.PA, I do too. I haven't been to the Pacific Asia in a while and I keep meaning to go.
Cool flower, although this morning when I saw the tiny photo on my ipod I thought it was bacon, which sounded like a good break to me! My ideal break would be to skip work on a sunny warm day (which we had on Monday and I was really tempted!) and drive an hour to Muir Woods to walk among the big trees then with a (sweets-heavy) picnic lunch head to a crowd-free Muir beach and just sit and watch the waves. Then after a long hike to work off lunch I'd head to the Pelican Inn for an English dinner and a pint (or two) of ale, a round of darts, and a night in one of the gorgeous rooms at the Inn.
A trip to the art museum or go on a photo shoot at the botanical garden or drive around at night to see some of the holiday lights. I love Leslie's idea, too!
There are a lot of good ones here, aren't there? Muir Woods is out of my current reach, but I can walk among our local trees (must bundle up, it's cold). And there's an English restaurant I've been wanting to try. If they're not open, I'll just have a couple of beers at home.Photo shoot! Thanks for the reminder, Ms. M.
Between Paris and a cookie? That's a lot of miles.
My ideal break would be to pop across to Pasadena for the Doo Dah Parade, though somebody's going to have to invent a Star Trek style transporter because my old back won't take that amount of plane travel.Did Georgia o'Keefe die on your kitchen worktop?
Hiker, I was hoping someone would notice that one. I'm kind of proud of it.Dive, as we say around here, I'm not touching that one with a ten foot pole.
