Belden Place = delightful

 Dancing Jen and I had a garlic-filled, delicious lunch yesterday at B44 in Belden Place, a wonderful street (alley?) in the financial district with Russian, French, Spanish and American restaurants. All outdoors, some with roof top coverings, some not. Another "why I love SF" kind of day.

it is shrine season

 The top photo features the Mother of All Shrines Ever with the Blogmaid's creation at Apple. All the wonderful bobbleheads and schedules and the big orange thumb. I'm not sure of the date ~ maybe 2010? The baseball email group believes in shrines and I do too. Here is my half-assed attempt this week on the mantle above the fireplace. We have lost two games since I installed this...

Pamela, Judy and me

 Yesterday Pamela and I met at the deYoung to see the Judy Chicago exhibit ~ honestly the place was almost deserted and we had a fine time with coffee (show your Vax card and ID!) in the cafe afterwards. We were bummed to start the exhibit with the Death business (the artist, her mother and our earth) but then Judy covered almost everything else. The Holocaust stained glass window in the top photo was my favorite and yes, I am so glad we did this. Ms. Chicago works with glass, pottery, watercolors, oil, tapestry, embroidery and photography. So much talent. Yes, I recommend it!

huge waste of money

 Who did they think we were? How dare they try to recall Gov. Newsom with an election coming up next year? Yes, all at taxpayers' expense. Congratulations to California and our ex-mayor. Back to work...

Built for October

 The Giants are going to the Playoffs. Who is more surprised? The fans or MLB or the gamblers in Las Vegas? Built for October is on the new tee shirts the team is wearing in the photo. I want one.

10,495 steps

 A perfect day for a walk. Up busy, bustling Mission Street to 17th Street where I discovered this outdoor cafe with a view of the new (to me) housing on Shotwell. Robin's Cafe was just what I needed after my long "oh look at that" walk and I will return for another sandwich and a latte. Shotwell is a Slow Street (no car traffic) so I had a very nice and peaceful walk home. Today I be lazy and that is easy...
