Hello friends, It's Saturday morning here and I just read Janet's blog and her take on Ten Random Things who got the idea from Amy over at Love Made My Home. So, here are mine . . .
#1 I have enjoyed the weather this week with the cloud cover. My plants enjoy it too. This lovely trailing plant is growing over the wall from the neighbor's garden. The neighbors are having a party tonight supposedly with music. Too bad they didn't invite us :(
#2 Lilly has to be in the center of everything! She's a curious kitty but so loved.
#3 Thursday night my dear husband and I headed off to the beach to have dinner at our favorite restaurant. But, there was NO parking anywhere to be found. We decided to go back home via Pacific Coast Highway and found a new lovely restaurant on the harbor. It was a fun evening after all!
#4 I am addicted to making my Sophie's Blanket and also to my teacup/tea collection. Here's the new teacup I just had to have. It's Wild Strawberries by Wedgewood. I originally saw this pattern on the Japanese TV show I watch "At Home with Venetia in Kyoto". Venetia is from England and has the most lovely collection of different china. The tea is Fortmason from Fortnum and Mason. A lovely black tea scented with orange.
#5 My children are off camping this weekend. I love how scenic this campsite is although I don't now exactly where they are.
#6 My daughter ordered some new Tory Burch flats and asked if I wanted a pair. I liked these gold ones but for some reason, they really don't fit my feet. Having a bunion doesn't help either!
#7 I did my grandma duty this week of babysitting. They soon will be turning 8 and 2! Time goes by so fast. I'm lucky that I'm just a few minutes down the road from where they live.
#8 I really have enjoyed the cloud cover these past few days. I'm not a fan or sunny, blue skies! The sun kills me (although the UV rays are just as bad with clouds). We're having some monsoon moisture coming our way which is a bit unusual for us down here in SoCal.
#9 My "to do project" which will be a DIY. I bought these handmade Mexican tiles last month in San Diego. I'm going to apply them to the wall where the outside bar-b-que area is. I don't have enough so these will be intermixed along with some large, plain tiles. Question is; when will I get this done?
#10 We found a new coffee place. I'm not a fan of Starbucks (sorry but the inside of their messy stores upsets my OCD). But, there is a little lane of old houses in San Juan Capistrano and one of them has the cutest coffee shop with beans roasted onsite. You can sit outside in their garden under the trees and savor your cup of coffee! Heavenly.
That's is for me. I hope your weekend is off to a great start wherever you are!
With my best wishes,
