Haul Out the Holly

Haul Out the Holly

I’m having trouble getting into the holiday spirit this year. There could be any number of reasons: I don’t have kids.I don’t like egg nog.It hasn’t snowed in Pasadena yet. I gained weight before Thanksgiving.I don’t enjoy shopping.I can’t fly.I haven’t started on my holiday cards, even though every year I promise myself I will [...]

Onward, Christian Soldiers

Onward, Christian Soldiers

Have you heard any of the press about “the war on Christmas?” I heard about it on Patt Morrison yesterday on KPCC. Apparently some people are up in arms (it’s a war after all) because they prefer to hear “Merry Christmas” instead of “Season’s Greetings” or “Happy Holidays.” They want to see red and green–none [...]

Retreat

Retreat

I stopped at Vroman’s today. Wednesday afternoon. Middle of the work day. Parking lot packed. This requires patience. You wait in a line of cars (you have no choice, you’re stuck now) while someone backs out of a space. The line moves on and finally it’s your turn, your space, the furthest one in the [...]

Co-Operating on Food

Co-Operating on Food

Last year our clementine tree was so prolific I gave clementines as Christmas gifts. I shared clementines with neighbors up and down the block. I enlisted friends to help pick them and sent them home with bags full of fruit. This year, nada. Like eleven clementines or something. I guess that’s just the way it [...]

Zen Monday: #124

Zen Monday: #124

photo by Katie Murphy It’s Zen Monday, the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo’s about. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd or silly. And I stay out of the comments box until the end of [...]

Not in the Spirit Yet

Not in the Spirit Yet

I had a migraine yesterday which is unfortunate any day but particularly unfortunate yesterday as I had party invitations as well as errands, a whole long planned-out tightly scheduled day with an itinerary and a list with subcategories, which is probably why I had a migraine in the first place but the doctor thinks it’s [...]

Christmas at Heritage Square

Christmas at Heritage Square

Here’s something Christmasy to do this weekend: The holidays are a good time to visit Heritage Square Museum, a whole neighborhood of preserved buildings straight out of the history of Los Angeles. This time of year they deck the place out to do Charles Dickens proud. This picture was sent to me by Brian Sheridan, [...]

PDP/PPM Books Contest, week 8

PDP/PPM Books Contest, week 8

This is it! It’s the last week of the PDP/PPM books contest/giveaway. Let’s give a big round of applause to Prospect Park Media and Colleen Dunn Bates for donating the books! For the final contest question, I thought devoted readers of Pasadena Daily Photo should have the extra edge. You can’t Google the answer to [...]

I’m Not Hip

I’m Not Hip

There was a time in my life when I thought it important to be in the know. No more. I’m too busy now to pay much attention to what’s in style, although I admit to enjoying the Sartorialist once in a while. But being hip requires actual study. You’ve got to read the right magazines [...]

Fire Station 31

Fire Station 31

The Altadena Hiker called it an “excellent adventure” and it was. She, Bellis and I had long planned to visit Castle Green on Sunday for the annual Christmas open house. The closest parking lot was full and each of us had walked some distance to get there. But as the line snaked out into the [...]
