|Colorful Sunday Runday|
|A rare break from brown and yellow.|
|You see steps. I see SAQ training (speed-agility-quickness).|
|People get into holidays around here.|
|It's rare to be able to see Mt. Diablo and Sacramento on a|
Summer day. It's usually too hazy.
|We went to an antique sale at a place in Rocklin. I love|
antiques, want them all, but fortunately, left my wallet at
home (on purpose).
|I would have totally bought this toy piano. And the strawberry|
cup in the pic above.
|And the green glassware.|
|Someone posted this on Facebook and I nearly fell off my|
chair glorying in the awesomeness.
Of course, on Monday, I went to Santa Rosa, and the posts from my visit to the Schulz campus are already blogged here. But that's not the only Instagramming I did that day.
|Online dating gets more and more hilarious. What out for those|
dudes who date Cheerios.
|A few cute ones from the Schulz campus.|
|I still love that I had a Snoopwich Sandwich (almond butter|
with strawberry jelly on whole wheat).
|Look at the drawing board--you can see the worn-down spot.|
|We spent a couple hours relaxing at the hotel before dinner|
and the concert.
|When you're in wine country, the hotel provides bedside|
|This was near the restaurant.|
|Me, Katie, Tom, Summer. A good crew, a fun evening.|
|Ben Folds!! We were in the 2nd row.|
|He stopped to tie his shoe between songs.|
|Drumming--he actually majored in percussion.|
|Our hotel was on Red Barn Road, and this is why.|
|Summer bought me breakfast.|
|Summer stayed at the hotel for a bit longer before check-out,|
but I had plans to see Santa Rosa's air museum at the
Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport.
|F-15. This very plane was one of the first responders on|
September 11th, in New York City.
|F-14--the info said this one was used in "Top Gun" but when|
I asked the docents, they said that was actually incorrect.
I replied, "Darn, I was hoping to get its autograph!"
|Who cares if it's not a movie star? It's still a badass airplane.|
|I think it was ground crew who signed this one.|
|Flowers growing under weapons.|
|I stopped in downtown Santa Rosa on my way out of town.|
Parked RoPro, promptly saw a great sign.
|My purpose for stopping, just beyond this sign.|
|I love this--Santa Rosa is justifiably proud of their famous|
former citizen, and I'm sure they love the tourist money
he still draws in.
|I found a scrapbook store and had to stop in.|
|This made me giggle.|
|Finally home, I enjoyed my adorable cookie from the museum.|
|While I was gone, this arrived in the mail. I ordered it on|
Etsy last week. I'm not a particular believer in angels, but
for some reason this gives me comfort.
|A souvenir from Santa Rosa.|
|Dad got Mom a birthday present a few days early, and|
wrapped it himself. :)
|I had to Throwback Thursday to these cuties. Friday marked|
five years since I took them in for two weeks. This was day
one, while they were still too shy to come out of the carrier
|Who runs up a half-mile hill when it's already 85 degrees out?|
Morons. Morons do.
|I've been seeing a lot of these lately, and that makes me happy.|
|I went to Lowe's hoping to get something else for Mom, and|
ended up buying her a hibiscus plant for the garden. They
|I got a lot of cracks about posting my roller--a few people|
seem to think it's something naughty. Nope, it's pure "hurts
so good" for my back when it's bothering me. I lay on it.
|A visit from Dixie always means cookies from Dad.|
|That white spot is an egret. I was too far away to get a great|
shot, but yes, it was overcast.
|Fridays are not run days, so I walked, because instead of the|
gym, I was working out at home.
|Gorgeous shot--just as I hit the "post" button, it started to rain|
|After spending much of Friday morning cleaning, Mom and I|
spent Friday evening prepping food for today.
|Before I could go to bed, I had to get to 20,000 steps. I ended|
up walking some figure eights (in both directions) in the
|Dad put the flags out this morning.|
|I went for another walk.|
|This is the same pond as the pic from Friday--I walked down|
to it today.
|THIS. I know people who refuse to celebrate this holiday, and|
this is the best rebuttal I can find. Yes, there are people who
are still not enjoying many of the freedoms many of us do.
There is work to be done, always.
|We moved garden furniture around and set up tables for|
Mom's brunch party.
|My contribution: it's crescent rolls baked as a crust, topped|
with cream cheese, mixed with sugar and cinnamon. Then put
fruit on top. It was a hit!
|Mom also loved my idea to put flags in the utensil holders.|
|One couple gave Mom these lovely flowers.|
