'Virtual' Date Night...Quick...For Comfort

       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*
      We're planning to come back again soon for a Giants ball game at AT&T Park...
     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 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, 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!


  1. I love the yellow threads in that white one! So pretty! They're all pretty!
    I've never been to San Francisco, but I hear it's a pretty place. Glad you enjoyed yourself.
    Sorry that you have to have a sad day today. Hope it all goes well.
    Jehovah will help you all to get through it!

  2. Deb, All your headbands are so pretty. Doesn't matter the colors because you see the love that they were made with. So sorry that your day will be filled with sorrow. Hope you can find comfort today.

  3. Your headbands are so super cute! I am loving the colours you are using.

    Thinking of you today. Sending you
    enter me.

  4. CinLynn, I'm glad you liked the threads in that one. I'm using up some of my threads in some of the other ones I'm making now. It's letting me add a little color, but also making the headbands a little more sturdy!...Tough day, but also a good day.And Jehovah did indeed hold my hand all the way through it! :-]

  5. SnowflakeDreams1, Awwwwwww! Thank you so much Velma! :-) By the way, look for an email from me later. It's at the top of my list of things to do...right after breakfast! :-))

  6. Alittlesprite, Thank you so so much! ♥ I'm glad you like my funky colors. :-)) And thanks for the encouraging words too....You're entered!

  7. I love your crayon colours. That pink is so vibrant. I also really like the yellow & white. It looks very pretty.
    Would you believe that I have been to San Francisco? I was only at the airport for a change of flights and it was 11pm at night so I didn't get to see anything :( but I can at least say I was there.

  8. Jo-anne, Well, thank you!! I thought I'd be the only one into these colored ones! I'm glad to know you like them too...And yes! You mentioned to me before about your airport San Francisco visit. :-)) Hey...a visit is a visit! ^_^
