We’re Late

False fire alarm and SF’s ongoing construction both manage to annoy me. But Jay Bell’s “Something Like” series managed to keep me entertained. If a gay romance has any appeal, you really need to check it out.

New Hair

New haircut, lunch with Justin, and the girls’ routine vaccinations pass for excitement this first week of February. And of course I make food then get some cute shots of the cats.

Feeling Up

Kind of a schizoid week. Class startup kept me busy so I didn’t take the time to shoot much during the week. Completely skipped Monday and Thursday. Oh well. Got the espresso machine shipped off. Making due with the small one. But the weekend was good. Not one but two brunches. Roamed around the city then felt superior about an Aston Martn’s tacky carbon fiber trim, before moving on to taunt a Marin mall. If nothing else, we managed to amuse ourselves. Maybe you too?

Lost Day

I know Monday happened but I have no video proof for you, kind viewer. Just as I recovered from the shock, a major crisis erupted. My beloved super-automatic expresso machine stopped responding to its buttons. Oy. Have to send it out for repairs. Then we wrapped up the week with a walk along Ocean Beach. Too bad I fell and twisted an angle seconds after getting out of the car. Pain. Swelling. And too bad I can’t send my ankle off someplace for a quick repair.

Dull Headache

The week started with various maladies popping up but none went anywhere. Still enjoyed a comfortable night in with my husband. Maybe that’s dull. I don’t care. Had a fire alarm go off. No real fire though. Had to figure out how fix our bathtub drain. Also learned why turnips have purple tops. Saturday trip to Sonoma. Found the original Williams Sonoma store. They’ve done a nice job of restoring the building. And closed the week by watching fog obliterate the Golden Gate Bridge.

Back to work, back to normal. Or a facsimile. That means me talking to the camera and the cats being cute. I rant about the uncontrolled construction here in SF, suffer through a couple of intense allergy attacks, and wind up the week worried I might be getting sick. Bah.

That kind of dead week between Christmas and the New Year. Very quiet here. Short days at the office. Lots of quality time with the cats. And I did capture some footage of a hummingbird in the courtyard.

SF Xmas

Time for Christmas. We were also on Puck duty while Matt and Migs relaxed on Kauai. Hit a sidewalk cafe with Nick. Yes, drinks outside in December. Gotta love California. Then we managed to get into the season. Found a lot of booze and chocolate under the tree. Can’t complain about that.

Short Days

Last week of Fall classes. Week before Christmas. My vendetta against Amazon. And cute cats. What more can you want?

Weird Noises

Grey week. Big storms. Rain, etc. Rich and I celebrated our 27th anniversary. Hard to comprehend. Went up to Sonoma for wine pickup. First road trip in the i3 thanks to a couple of new DC fast chargers between here and there. Amazon Fire TV stick arrived. Which let to an anti-Comcast bitch. Managed to get some nice shots from Crissy field while I walked about 4 miles. And we managed to bookend the week with yet another rain storm. Fun.
