cold house

Last day of NaBloPoMo! With the exception of last Wednesday, I wrote every day this month (I made up for it with 2 posts on Thanksgiving). It’s been fun. I will make no promises as to future writing! I’ve learned my lesson there. It’s San Diego, so it does not get super cold here, like…

weekend over

The weekend has come to an end. Over Saturday and Sunday, I watched all 6 of the Star Wars movies. The first three episodes on Saturday and episodes 4,5, and 6 today. I also finished part of the project I’ve been working on for work so that was a success. On the downside, I woke…

decisions

I woke up this morning really craving a cinnamon roll. I looked up nearby bakeries. Then I figured I should do something to earn that tasty treat. So I did a 3-mile hike through Rancho Mission Canyon. It was great! And afterward, I couldn’t find the bakery I wanted, thought about getting lunch from somewhere…

back home in SD

This morning was pretty mellow. I went out to a little bakery that has stuff we like. I get a ham & cheese croissant, and Mom likes the cinnamon rolls. Dad wanted an apple fritter. We basically lounged the whole morning. We talked some about the next visit when Sandy & T will be visiting,…

Thanksgiving

Never been a big holiday for my family. We rarely, especially since me & Sandy have grown up, have a ‘traditional’ meal. Today, we had grilled steak with potatoes, plus alioli & bread. It was really good. For dessert, chocolate pudding with whipped cream. For lunch, Mom made pan con tomate and we put jamon…

I forgot!

I totally spaced on blogging yesterday! Sorry! To make up for it, I will post twice today. Yesterday, I went to work with my pie and cookies. Around 11:15 am, we started putting food out. A lot of people were off so there was a small group, around 12. The newly appointed VP, and an…

baking, anxiety, Trainwreck

It’s holiday week. Tomorrow at work, we’re having a potluck. It seems like it’s going to be kind of skimpy this year since we have fewer people, and some of the people will be on vacation. This year, I signed up for desserts. So today I made a pumpkin pie and chocolate chip applesauce cookies….

simple pleasure Monday

I’m stealing this title from my sister. She’s been posting little highlights every Monday for the past couple weeks. Since I didn’t know what to write about tonight, I figured I’d give it a shot. Looking back on my day, I’ll tell you what occurred to me as my simple pleasure: mochas. I’ve gotten into…

beautiful Sunday

I got up around 9:30 am and decided to go for a walk before I could get myself distracted by the TV or work. My neighborhood has these “secret” sidewalks. There are 8 of them. I tried looking for them before but only found 2 even though I’d looked at the map of them and…

Saturday laze

I just read Sandy’s post for tonight, and I’m with her. I was mostly a couch potato today. And for me, when I’m not doing much, it makes me want to eat.all.of.the.things. I puttered around until 11:30 am when it was time to take Han to get his rental car. Then we came back, and…

TGIF

Even though I took yesterday off, I’m still glad that it’s the weekend. Although I brought work home (again), I’m looking forward to a relaxing time. No big news to report today. It was a standard work day. This time of the year always gets a bit weird, with people’s vacations, holiday time, etc. Most…

44

Who knows numerology? It seems like 44 should be a good number, right? I’m 44 today. I slept nearly 10 hours last night. That was delightful. Around 11 am, I left the house to go for a walk exploring the footbridges of San Diego. I found this route and thought it might be fun. But…
