Nesting in Limbo

Nesting in Limbo

Nest Furnishings may look like it’s going out of business, but it might take a while. The store is located at 680 E. Colorado Blvd. on the southeast corner of Colorado and El Molino, where plans for the new IDS Playhouse Plaza building project have stalled. The proposed building apparently exceeds city size requirements. The [...]

Window Tweetment

Window Tweetment

I have Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and a blog and it’s already enough/plenty/on the verge of too much. Some people digg and delicious and Classmates and Flickr and Friendster and the list goes on and on. (I tried Library Thing briefly but that was too obsessive even for me.) Do you tweet? “Tweeter” was my nickname [...]

Boz and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day*

Boz and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day*

First, June gloom. In JULY. Why get up? I did. I forget why. Finally the sun comes out and what happens? BATH. They give me a BATH. It is TORTURE. Lather, rinse, REPEAT. Why repeat? WHY? I endure because I know I will get the traditional pig ear for my reward. I take it to [...]

Stylish Nerds

A while back I promised you a photo of me and John in our new glasses. We finally had our picture taken by our fabulous neighbor, Linda Centell (thank you, Linda!) and voila! New glasses. It’s a good day to post this photo because today is special: it’s the birthday of my husband, my best [...]

Zen Monday: #105

Zen Monday: #105

You won’t be surprised to know it’s Zen Monday. Today’s the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo’s about. There’s no competition, no right or wrong. We’re here to have fun. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something [...]

Abundancia

photo inspired by John Sandel There’s always something to photograph at the Saturday Farmers’ Market at Victory Park. Today everyone was exclaiming over the purple peppers (near the top of the photo) at the Jaime Farms booth. We shopped all around the market: peppers, zucchini, eggplant, broccoli, arugula, freshly baked bread, peaches, granola and fresh [...]

Just Call Me Sherlock

Just Call Me Sherlock

It’s not like I go to Target every day. But one has occasion to stop in at least once in a while. I visit the store at 777 E. Colorado Blvd. (there’s another at 3121 East Colorado). You’d think somewhere in five years of shopping one would notice hundreds of little hand prints on the [...]

Stairway to A Secret

Stairway to A Secret

If you’re willing to get off the main path, Lower Arroyo Park will give up its secrets. Stone walls, steep trails, hidden stairways and more lie waiting in the underbrush along the walls of the Arroyo. I’ve sometimes wondered if these human-made bits might be traces of Busch Gardens. The walls, maybe. Some are old, [...]

Planet Flora

Planet Flora

My move in the late 1980′s from Illinois to southern California was a culture shock so complete I didn’t even recognize the vegetation. Gone were the tame, Midwestern maples, elms and simple posies, to be replaced by palm trees and flora I recognized from Dr. Seuss. To keep my attitude positive, I decided to think [...]
