With Peaches' funeral today :-( and some other things that have to be taken care of too, we didn't want to go on one of our lingering long trips last night. We just wanted to have some comfort food and go to bed so we wouldn't be over-tired before this long day even got started.
So, a three hour flight there, to San Francisco's Chinatown...
That's Chinatown's Gateway Arch on Grant Avenue at Bush Street in the header photo. The perfect place to dart in and dart out of for some comfort food! :-) ...Okay! So it's not the easiest place to go! But it certainly was a good enough spot to put us in the right frame of mind to get us ready for the long day we have ahead of us!
We've been to San Francisco before on one of our Friday nights. That's why we came again on our quick jaunt. To look at the 'city by the bay' off the bridge, grab some food...Lo Mein and shrimp...and sit quietly on the plane, watching the clouds out the window on the way home....Quiet. That's what we needed last night..Thinking time...Getting ready time...*sigh*
But for last night, we didn't have that kind of time anyway.
Once we got back home and put our leftovers in the fridge...*we're gonna need those tonight probably...for comfort snacking*...we tried to go to bed. Not the easiest thing to do with lists of things that have to be done before the Funeral Talk...
Don't forget the flowers...pick out what you're gonna wear...figure out what to put on the card...don't forget tissues...be careful about cologne...Oh! The things you think of that don't seem all that important, and yet seem so unforgettably important all at the same time...*shaking my head*
The 'going to bed early' thing...didn't work! Not for me anyway. But you know what did?....Crocheting headbands. :-] I finished three of them yesterday!!...
This is another one in my 'Crayon' line. *Teehee* That's what I'm calling it anyway. :-)
I did a basic black one after I was almost on overload with all of the crayon colors! LOL...
I put one of my ceramic stone buttons on it...
And then I decided I was gonna make a plain white one too.....but then I remembered that I still have these threads...
...beige and yellow...
So, I took a strand from each of these colors, and added it to the white, and came up with this!...
I finished it, and the flower I put on it too...
...but by then it was too dark to take pictures of it! I'll show it to you sometime this weekend though...if we can find the time to take some good photos of it, in the backyard maybe, that is!
Okay....a trip to San Francisco (where I didn't leave my heart...just saying!), a hot cup of coffee, three crocheted headbands, some sitting and watching the pretty sky, and some fried hotdogs for breakfast.....Don't judge me!! LOL Just give me a little slack...today, okay. :-] Have a good day everybody. It would be nice to know somebody will today!
Describe The Sky
Evoking awe and bouts of wonder.
Such inspiration, you just want to cry.
With birds high-flying, and winds a blowing,
what words would you use to describe the sky?
Would you say, whether clouds are upon it,
that it blankets a wondrous space?
Or would you be more awed and humbled,
hoping there you would find God's face?
I would say that when standing quiet,
looking up at the sun or moon,
there's a feeling of peaceful oneness
that I hope won't go away too soon.
Evoking bouts of awe and wonder
was probably what it was designed to do;
That is, besides giving off light and weather,
and the most spectacular view!
