Top to Bottom: (1) After sitting for years on my bookshelf, I finally finished reading Kate Chopin's The Awakening. It was bought at a Goodwill store through the recommendation of a friend who was there shopping with me that day. Such a dork for taking so long in reading it. Loved it very much despite it's sad theme of love, oppression and the need for freedom (2+3+4) All taken last Saturday at the Griffith Observatory. My first time visiting since they closed down to remodel in 2002. It's one of my favorite places to visit in the city, not just because of it's views but also because I have good memories of visiting as a kid (5) A bus we spot almost every morning on the way in to work. Not sure where it goes, but fan of it's pretty paint job. Wonder who gets to ride in it since it's always empty when I see it? (6) One of my favorite easy-to-make comfort foods. Grilled cheese sandwiches on sourdough with sharp cheddar and lots of butter when toasting (7) Sometime in the summer the flowers on my orchid died. I asked the man who keeps the orchid stand at the farmers market we visit almost every week what to do, and he told me to trim the stem of the dead orchid about half way and that in 4 months I would have new ones... and it worked! These little buds just started growing this last week. Can't wait to see how they turn out. Know I probably sound like an idiot here, but plants tend to die on me (8) George was sick this weekend? I'm not sure why? He didn't eat anything out of the ordinary, but he seems better now, so I'm hoping it was just hairballs.. gross, I know, sorry!
Wishing you a great new week! ♥
