Unfurl the Sails

This is one of the photos I took while on my trip … still catching up.  This one is of San Francisco Bay with Marin County in the background.  I soooooo love it there.  Unfurl your sails and catch the winds of love.  December begins tomorrow. Big changes coming. Namaste’

Just Desserts

Oh, my! I guess this isn’t the time of year to worry about dieting.  So I don’t – ha ha!  While having lunch with a friend, I noticed that when I put my glasses down on the menu, the lens landed on the word desserts.  What do you know!  I love desserts.  Diet downfall. The…

Are We There Yet?

Are we there yet?  Is it the end of the year when I get to stop posting a photo a day?  OK, OK, I shouldn’t be complaining.  I’m the one who signed up for this and made the commitment.  Someone asked me today why I did it and my instant reply was that it was…

On the Back of a Car

Well, after yesterday’s post about being stressed out and no one to choke, I saw this while in traffic today.  What is it I always say at the end of my posts? Look right above the license plate.  How fitting that I should see this today.  I guess if we pay attention, we get messages…

For Two Reasons

It seemed appropriate to post this picture today.  I took it while at a friend’s house.  Yes, Linda, you’ll recognize it from your coffee table. This is also for a blogger friend of mine (and you know who you are).  We both have been feeling the pinch of the holiday stress, so here’s to us….

Officially Finished

No I don’t mean the blog.  I have until December 31 for that.  What I mean is that our Christmas decorating is officially finished.  Hubby did a fabulous job on the outside and we put up a tree this year … first time in a long time.  Thirty days until Christmas.  Sure seems to be…

It’s That Time of Year

It’s that time of year for those blow-up lawn ornaments.  Here’s a couple that were on the roof at our local Ace Hardware store.  Just had to have a little fun with them. Click to enlarge. It’s kind of hard to get into the Christmas spirit here.  It’s 80 degrees today.  Namaste’

The Culprit

There’s this plant that is wreaking havoc with noses and eyes right now in the southern Arizona desert.  I don’t know it’s formal name (you know I don’t, right?) like Bulldog knows all of his.  I’m jealous.  But it blows around, makes us all sneeze and provides a fine film of white fluff on the…

About Today

Thanksgiving is about food for lots of people.  Well, I like it, too, that’s for sure, but it’s about more for me.  I don’t want to get philosophical but it’s always a day where memories of Thanksgivings past flood my mind.  I remember all of my loved ones that have gone on to the other…

Autumn Leaves

As you probably know, the desert doesn’t see autumn leaves, so I asked my friend and traveling buddy, Pat, to send me some autumn leaves when she was in Chicago last month.  So now they’re an added addition to my Thanksgiving place mats tomorrow.  Thanks, Pat, and I’ll be thinking of you for sure.  As…

Forever Marilyn

I found this to be one of the most amazing things that I saw on my trip.  A 26-foot statue of Marilyn Monroe.  As you can see by the people at her legs, she’s pretty tall. She was sculpted by J. Seward Johnson and has been in Chicago until May of this year when it…

Car #496

Another image from my trip.  These are so much fun to ride, especially when you have sore feet from walking along all the piers and Fisherman’s Wharf.  Namaste’
