Watery Wednesday #39

Sausalito Marina, originally uploaded by M’roy.

A couple of years ago my husband and I celebrated his birthday by taking a day off. I asked him to play tourist in our own backyard and walk around Sausalito and enjoy the late November day. I remember the weather was sunny and very pleasant at around 60 F. We took pictures all over the marina and this is one of them. I always associate this image with his b/day. We capped the night with a lovely dinner at Chez Panisse. It was a perfect day from the time we got up to the time we turned in.

This year we celebrated his birthday by battling jetlag 🙂

Watery Wednesday #38

Last winter we went on a day trip to Lake Tahoe, a 3-hour drive, to snap some photos and have a “snow day”.  On the way, we stopped where cars are parked on the side of the road and explored the place on foot.  During summertime drive up to Lake Tahoe, I don’t recall even seeing this place, but of course this little bridge over a small stream is about a half hour walk from the Interstate.  Boy was I glad we stopped and took that walk.

My World #52: The Last Shopping Weekend B4 Christmas

The past weekend was the last shopping weekend before Christmas.  While majority of the population are busy shopping for last minute gifts or grocery shopping for what’s going to be on the table, we were taking it easy.  With 99% of our grocery shopping done and our gift shopping completely done two weeks before, husband and I were able to watch a movie.  We went to see 2012, which I thought shouldn’t have been shown around this season.  It’s not Christmassy enough.  Anyway, after the movies we went window shopping in Ikea and drove to Jack London Square to see the giant Christmas tree. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the memo that there wasn’t any tree this year. I wonder why.  Anyway, I’m sharing with you what I have taken on this drizzly day.

The Christmas Tree at Bay Street in Emeryville where we watched the movie.

I am so loving this new light fixture.

Just looking at the display makes me happy and gives me a lot of ideas about how to fix my own home.

I love this couch.

Happy Happy Holidays to one and all.
