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.
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.
Last week of Fall classes. Week before Christmas. My vendetta against Amazon. And cute cats. What more can you want?
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.
Back to work week. Construction seemed to be at every turn. The jackhammer noise drove me out of my office. And something punctured an i3 tire. Not fun. Tried to make it up with cats and good food cooking. Happy Birthday Darren.
Went to get the 328i tire replaced but surprise! The battery died. And that set off computer errors so minor repair odyssey stretched over three days. Then Thanksgiving hit. Lots of good food and friends. Quick demo of the i3’s semi-autonomous highway mode. And finally we hit the Academy of Sciences and the Keith Haring show at the de Young.
Week before the national day of gluttony. I hate that the end of the year is rolling up so fast. Rainy season seems to have officially begun. Cooked a couple of new meals. Lots of cute cat footage also.
Monday brought gloom and cold. Well cold for coastal California. Of course it’s my cue to head to the water. Sorry for the wind noise at Crissy Field. Met up with my pal Joe for Friday morning waffles. Made three more great Blue Apron meals. Bitched about self checkouts. And cute cats. Plenty of cute cats.
