bird watching from the parking lot...

I'm at the allergist once a week for allergy shots, then again every other week for asthma injections. Fun stuff. Braces, shots...oof. My allergist is in a little town south of where I live and it;s right off the freeway in one of those industrial type parks. The cool part is that I think there's a wetland nearby as I'm always hearing frogs and birds I cannot identify. Today there were these hawks. Can you see both of them? They were just flying around screeching up a storm. I'm no good with hawk identification but still, I stood there in the parking lot with my head turned up towards the sky as I watched and listend to these two hawks. Last week I saw five or six quail hightailing it away from my car as I pulled into ap arking spot. You never know what you will see. I am so glad I look.

goodness in a shell

One of my school families has chickens. Well, many of my families have chickens, but this one family has set me up in eggs for the year. Fresh eggs, really fresh eggs are gorgeous and so good. I've started eating fried eggs again with a soft yolk. When the yolks are as rich as they are in fresh eggs, you want to have that beauty spill over whatever food you place it on. I'veb een eating them over toast with greens, or fried rice....soooo good!

one month in

I'm not sure I'm seeing any difference yet. My mouth hurts. Not too bad but I feel like my teeth are asleep and I can't chew a darn thing. I've had two adjustments already and all I can say is ouch. Serious ouch. Everyone talks about how much their mouths hurt after the adjustments, by my mouth hurts DURING the adjustments.  Also, I'm really tired of soup.

reading in the pink room

I did it! I cleaned up the pink room enough to get the bed clear and happy bedding put on it. Now I just want to stay here all day and read.
Hmmm...with this awesome pile of books, and those pretty vintage sheets, I think I just might!

happy things


There is something so happy about a chicken mug. Especially one that takes both hands to hold. Me and my darn fondness ofr chicken mugs. But how can I resist?
I splurged on a bit of happy Gudrun Sjödén. The colors she uses in her designs make me so happy. I can't wait to wear these! The blue with the pink leaves is a summer weight tunic kind of like an onld late 80s babydoll dress. The black in the front is solid with a spotted pocket. In the back it is all spotted. It's a bit sloppy on me...I should have picked a smaller size but I love it!
It was a two mug kind of day. The chicken mug housed my coffee, while this mug housed my tea. I picked up this super nifty magazine when we were in Seattle ofr the eclipse trip. I still have not read all of it. It's got a lot fo eye candy in it!
