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!

IMG_2536

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

IMG_2539

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

IMG_2540

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

IMG_2541

79 – grey shoes, grey stones. and grass!

IMG_2544

80 – yay for gang graffiti.

IMG_2545

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!

IMG_2548

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

IMG_2551

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

IMG_2554

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

IMG_2557

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.

IMG_2561

86 – the sky is multicolored!

IMG_2562

87 – I love him.

IMG_2564

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

IMG_2571

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!

IMG_2573

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.

IMG_2574

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:

IMG_2479

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.

IMG_2485

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

IMG_2487

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

IMG_2490

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

IMG_2500

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

IMG_2495

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

IMG_2499

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

IMG_2502

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.

IMG_2504

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

IMG_2506

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

IMG_2508

67 – communication is key. that is all.

IMG_2512

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.

IMG_2514

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!

IMG_2516

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