oh, yes


We finally saw Moonlight Monday night ~ a DVD from the Flix®. It
is everything and more ~ sad, warm, tender and so overwhelming that
I had to take a ME day yesterday, all to myself, just to ruminate and recover.
Yes, that worked, but it is a movie that will never leave me. Glorious.

Joe Day on 3rd Street

Wool: Nature's Technology

exotic wood and string elephants

First we had brunch at Serpentine (great!) and then we hit the Museum of
Craft and Design to view Felt Decoded (thought about you, Anna) which
explains, with detailed photos, how felt is made. Then Wendy Maruyama
and the wildLIFE Project ~ we must preserve these magnificent animals
who are slaughtered for their ivory tusks. Such beauty.

two Sunday winners


Congratulations to RR and George who won many lovely ribbons at
the horse show in Moss Beach yesterday. And great photography, dear
Blogmaid. These two sure make an elegant team, don't they?

tomato talk


We took advantage of the sunshine yesterday and covered our back deck
with tomatoes and flowers. I still have a little dirt under my fingernails
and that feels good. Early Girls work best for us and you will be able
to witness the growth, as per usual. Yes, the cages are a bit premature,
but we are optimists ~ always.

finally ~ a win



Speaker Paul Ryan couldn't muster the votes for that mean health (not care)
bill and so maybe, maybe we are one step nearer to universal single payer
healthcare like the rest of the civilized world. Now to impeach this
Russian-inspired President and we can keep moving forward...

and always ~ the books



This year, the first full year of retirement, I started a book folder on 
my desktop. The big one is "want to read" and then the "finished"
list, which is growing slowly. South of Broad takes place in
Charleston and (surprise) San Francisco ~ Pat Conroy was a very
special writer and I thoroughly enjoy his work. I just started
the Frankel book, I believe I read about it in the New Yorker. 
Both on my Lindakindle2, of course. This is how it Always Is
tells the story of a doctor and her writer house husband and 
their five (!) sons. Wisconsin is the locale at this point. Yes.

now on the Flix®


Last night we finished the final episode (#10) of this OJ story. Neither of
us wanted to watch it because like the rest of America we were saturated
with this drama during real time and our memories are strong here. But
about 10 minutes into the first episode and we were hooked. Great
acting and lots of details that have come out since that tragic time. Great TV.
