up to date

Persimmon tree at my Aunt Bernice's Ranch

After a long hiatus I am back to my blog. It has been a very event filled few months. Basically I worked at a super stressful job for way too long and it made me physically sick. In November that all changed and since then I have devoted much of my time focusing on my health. Thanks to a series of cleansing programs and Chinese herbs I am feeling a million times better.

My first step in getting back on track is picking up my blog. I owe Anna, at Door Sixteen a big thank you for checking in with me and nudging me to get back at it. Thanks Anna! The house looks great by the way. I also need to thank Richard. The past 2 weeks Richard has pushed me to sit down and get started. Thanks Rich.

So much has happened that I don't know where to begin so I will just devote this post to an at a glance photo journal of what went on.

Halloween was super fun. We went to see a Led Zeppelin cover band. I was dressed as a Chewsquatch, Richard was a Yeti and our friend Heidi was a Bumble Bee.

I went back to Fresno for a night to attend a book signing for my friend Tony's new book entitled "Frezno"
My friend Carter came into town from NY to attend the San Francisco Premier of Milk at the Castro Theater. He took me along and we had a blast.

The organizers held the after party at city hall. It was very nice to see everyone all dressed up.
Of course we voted.
And then we celebrated with the entire city.
Richard worked really hard to get ready for a show that was held at White Walls, here in the city.
And then we celebrated at the opening.

We went to see the new California Academy of Science building.
The albino alligator was really creepy.
We bought a Christmas tree. I can't believe that I forgot to take a photograph of the finished tree. It looked so pretty.
We helped my parents pick out their tree.
Richard made the most beautiful plates and platter for me. We were suppose to keep our gifts to something that we made or something that was under $20. He went way above and beyond. I LOVE them. I still can't believe he did it. I love them so much I can't even use them.
We decorated cookies with friends.We celebrated New Years with friends. I had pink eye and I was worried about giving pink eye to everyone. I was going to stay home so Richard bought an eye patch for me.
We brought home a few new items to add to the collection.
The photo above is the collapsed version of the benches below.
We have them set up as book shelves in our hallway

Great little chair.Old radio shell that will be speakers in our kitchen once I have a chance to work on them.

SO that brings us up to date. I left a lot out but it has been a long while. Tomorrow I will show photos of the latest on the building project that I have been working on and a new glass container that I found last weekend at the flea market. I am going to be turning it into a terrarium.

Thanks for looking! Have a great day!
