Making Something

Making Something

Koi at Houston’s Restaurant Boz and I took a walk last evening and got a look at some of the Halloween decorations going up in the neighborhood. Some people do the same thing every year. (If it works, don’t fix it, right?) Some people try new things. It’s fun to see folks being creative. So [...]

Mary Linn’s Bridal

Mary Linn’s Bridal

When you’ve been snorting and coughing for five days–when you’ve barely managed to get dressed each of those days and (you’re not sure, but) you might not have managed a shower every 24 hours–when you begin to fear you’re going to be a mouth-breather for the rest of your life–that’s when you need a pick-me-up. [...]

Zen Monday: #116

Zen Monday: #116

Zen Monday is 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 squirrely. And unless I absolutely must say something, I stay out of the comments box until the [...]

Composting Appeals to Me

Composting Appeals to Me

Something about composting appeals to the Midwestern farm girl in me. Okay, I’ve never lived on a farm. But I grew up in the Midwest, that’s gotta count. I enjoyed assembling my compost bin and here you see my tools. On top of the bin are the kitchen knife I used for gouging the holes [...]

Door, 4

Door, 4

While you’re out enjoying Art Weekend it seems fitting to post another door, especially one that’s padlocked, as I’m shut in with a cold. I’m not feeling sorry for myself. Oh, no no no no no. I’m feeling all benevolent and everything because I’m not going out and spreading my germs among the multitudes, unlike [...]

Art Weekend

Art Weekend

Pasadena’s bursting with art. There’s always an exhibit, a concert, a play or a spontaneous expression. Twice a year, in October and April, we have Pasadena Art Weekend, an event that’s dear to my heart. This weekend the slogan is “6 events, 1 weekend, all free.” Art Night kicks things off tonight, when local art [...]

Garages, 2

Garages, 2

I thought doing a series on garages in Pasadena would be easy. My favorites are the old ones, some going back to the early part of the 20th century. (This does not impress the European readers or those on the east coast, but so be it.) But it’s hard to find a garage without a [...]

Pick One

Pick One

It sure feels like summer’s over. It is over, I guess, with kids back in school. Summer stays late in southern California, but here it is October and I’m lamenting its departure. I’m a glutton that way. It’s been nice, though, to feel the fall chill. Why is fall so nostalgic? I think the word [...]

The Giving Season

The Giving Season

We’ve been enjoying some wet weather. It feels like winter, southern California style, although it’s only a taste. We can expect the heat to be back this weekend, with perhaps more rain next week. Nice. The weather puts me in mind of what’s to come: Halloween, Thanksgiving, and what we like to call The Holidays: [...]
