Book Club meets outdoors

Well, that was very pleasant indeed. Sunshine and laughter and always the worry about the future with this tRump guy. Six women wearing hats and discussing Where the Crawdads Sing and enjoying just being outdoors together. I included a photo of the back of Gini's charming SF home, Connie with an armful of books and then the patriotic sticker on Madeline's back car bumper.

Appearances Can Be Deceiving

That is the name of this exhibit at the deYoung which features Frida Kahlo's personal items from her lifelong home, La Casa Azul, in Mexico City. I was planning to go to Mexico City this year, but I will certainly settle for a museum visit tomorrow. I need to do a bit of reading to prepare myself. Now we must reserve online and there will be fewer people in the galleries. This does not bother me one bit.

Nancy and the cereal boxes

 Yesterday I started a new puzzle and began listening to a great audio book entitled Pelosi by Molly Ball. The latter is a loan from Libby at the Library and I highly recommend it. It is our October book club pick from Gini and I must say it is fabulous. Ms. Pelosi is a force to be reckoned with and she just makes me so proud to say that she is from SF and this crazy city taught her a lot about politics.

new puppy for old college friend

Of course you remember Ginger in Santa Barbara. She called yesterday and even though I have zero phone skills, we (she) chatted away for about 45 minutes. It is a good time for her to train this brand new guy named Skylar since she can't travel to faraway places these days. Her other dog, Shally, is adjusting slowly to all this boundless energy.

when writers zoom

Grrrrrr. It took me 19 minutes to get on yesterday afternoon, so today I have to fix my zoom because I can't bitch about these l-o-n-g sessions if I am part of the problem. But still nice to see old friends and read their words, hear the comments.

we mourn the Notorious RBG

So much sorrow as we learn that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died last night. A small woman, a brilliant giant who fought for women's rights. A horrible loss in this bad year 2020.

hermit emerges!

Dodger Doug (aka The Great Plotnik) is fixing the BEST grilled cheese sandwiches since Husbando had the audacity to leave this earth. I walked to/fro and then had to rush a bit to make the 4pm dinner deadline at Pat's Grove. Nice to be with nice people and be able to breathe again. Gratitude even though a certain Annabelle Snugglebutt exhibited haughty disdain when I finally returned home.
