one more try



View from our room on the 16th floor, the day was already warm!  But what an incredibly clear day in the City by the Bay.  Absolutely beautiful.


Another clear shot, it was so perfect.  The Golden Gate Bridge in the back.

And that is all I am going to try for tonight, not going to press my luck.

my Friday morning....


so, here is another typical Friday morning for me.  Up as usual by 5:30am, but it is cleaning day.  Coffee, Bible study or a reading from a favorite book given to me in a special way.  But that is another story.
But, the creative juices start flowing and they aren't in the direction of vacuuming and dusting.  So, I made some caffe in the Bialetti that my daughter gave me, found my husbands Ducati cup and saucer up in the cupboard and made a vanilla caffe latte.  Ok, this morning is definetly looking good.  But, I think, this would make a great picture memory, and out comes the camera.  Then the flowers catch my eye, and agreeing with myself, that they would be a great addition.  So, here it is, and in between laundry, fixing some breakfast for my hubby and myself and sitting down at the table!! conversing, (how much better can it be?), making the bed and blogging.  
Now that I babbled on....here is my morning memory.  So much more fun than cleaning house!
Make memories this weekend.

Already mid June!



I cannot believe how quick the days pass.  Already mid June with the longest day of the year only a week away.  How I wish it could stay like this.  Enjoying evening walks, opening the house up to catch the fresh air, the cool fog flowing through the canyon from the beach to our valley.
Last weekend I went to San Diego and did a Watercolor Journal workshop with my sister at the Center for Creative Renewal in Encinitas, CA.

 We both were amazed at the talent it really does take.  We giggled, compared, shared and learned something new.

Here is my attempt that I am willing to expose out there.
The instructor's books are incredible as were many of the students finished pages.
