Life. 365-Style. (3/12-4/1)

Three more weeks in pictures. Lots of new house (ahem, tiny apartment) shots, because we are moved and settled! What an ordeal. So far, I don’t totally hate not having a dishwasher, but it is extremely annoying to not have garbage disposal. I pick shit out of the sink all the dang time. First-world problems…


71 – I had the Tuesday off before we moved in, so it was spent at the hairdresser’s, at the new place getting the painters set up to uh, paint, and eating lunch in Dolores Park. Pictured is the shawerma from Truly Mediterranean. And my chubby feet. Mmmm…. mmm….


72 – My friend/coworker, Frannie, and I have a Wednesday lunch ritual. This time, we got lucky and there was sun on campus. Gotta love Palo Alto in March.


73 – sometimes I can’t resist a good people-watching photo. this guy is ready for summer, and for the flood.


74 – I’ve since realized that this is a gang symbol. But when I saw it, I thought of my buddy, Caroline¬†and her blog.


75 – into one place, and out of the other. walk-through with the landlord. and finally, a stop at The Mill for coffee!


76 – the boxes won’t quit. and Chris is waaaaaay tired of me being a drill sergeant.


77 – the mantle gets to showcase Chicago love. and yes, we still watch CSI. The original one. duh.


78 – it took some finagling, but thanks to Big Bob, the pot rack is hung. life is complete.


79 – grey shoes, grey stones. and grass!


80 – yay for gang graffiti.


81 – I started my Friday with my regular routine: coffee (tea the rest of the work week). But this time, I finally tried Philz. made me dizzy all day; that mess is STRONG!


82 – gave Mission Chinese another try since it keeps getting a ton of hype (and it delivers to our new spot!). Eh. Just eh.


83 – one cat in each corner, soaking in the sleep.


84 – finishing up an American Horror Story (Season 1) marathon. that mess was nuts!


85 – another Tuesday off, but this one involved hours of wasted time at the DMV and the SFMTA – all to get a neighborhood parking sticker. I did finish the day with some extra extra toasty yoga though, so that was nice.


86 – the sky is multicolored!


87 – I love him.


88 – Friday night takeout party! I could eat another pork bun right this second.


89 – I’m sorry, I know I already posted this on Instagram AND Facebook, but she’s just so dang cute! look at her scruffy neck hair!


90 – and then there’s this one, who gets into anything possible. that receiver is a warm piece of equipment, and she knows she isn’t supposed to be on it. so that’s why she is.


91 – and while this place is sans food posts as of late, I should add that I am still cooking. this is a quinoa “tabbouleh” salad from the True Food cookbook. It’s my new favorite resource for good, hearty, healthy things.

Life. 365-Style (2/26-3/11)

Here’s what the last 2 weeks have been like. Not too shabby. More backpacking, some cat pictures, and oh yeah, preparing for yet another move. This time we totally didn’t want to, but we are doing it anyway. It’s a long story, but in the end, throwing stuff into storage and living without a dining room and dishwasher for a short period of time was a no-brainer.

Anyway, here’s the happenings:


57 – lunch on the Embarcadero on a Tuesday off. If you’re ever down there for lunch, PLEASE go to Soup Junkie on Market and get the bun rieu (tomato and crab noodle soup). You will thank me, I promise.


58 – downtown view from Potrero Hill. And dang, that house on the left is INSANELY huge.


59 – I love when Sasha sleeps in the bathroom on the dirty clothes. Such a cutie.


60 – a super foggy morning. my red car really stands out here, eh?


61 – ok, duh, I didn’t take this, but still. We went backpacking in Point Reyes with our new water reservoirs.


62 – these are the water reservoirs. Best things since sliced bread. why didn’t we buy these when we first started backpacking?!


63 – someone tried to label Tange for storage. how rude.


64 – I know this is a horrible picture, but the highlight of this day was going to Chipotle. I love that place. Yes, I also love their chipotle sauce.


65 – I just have one word for this lady: WOW.


66 – it was a polka-dot day at work today. also, I started a new book called “Yes, Chef“. a good read so far.


67 – communication is key. that is all.


68 – i know this might look sad, but that cat was so cute! she was playing with a girl who walked by earlier. I wanted to yank her from the window, but something tells me that 3 cats is 1 too many for the new apartment.


69 – Tange is looking old and wise. I like the Victorians in the background, too. She will miss this view, but she’ll like the next one, too!


70- speaking of views, you can see Bernal Heights Park from one of the front windows. Not too shabby eh?
