We had thick fog the other morning. You could actually see the water in the air, It looked like fine snow. By the time I took Dash for his morning walk the fog was starting to burn off. I saw the tree in the photo on my walk to the coffee shop. It looked massive and dark, quite a powerful contrast to the soft fog. I loved it. A fairytale tree.
The weather has been great lately. It does not feel like winter at all. I managed to get rid of an incredible amount of dead leaves and branches in the yard. It made me feel so fortunate to be able to garden in January. Our vegetable planter box was full of weeds and debris. The strawberries I planted last year does not seem to mind the neglect it has received and had a tiny little white strawberry and a couple in the making. It made me happy to see this small little gnarly berry under all the clover and dead leaves.
I removed all the junk around the plant and will make sure to give it some fertilizer to say thank you.
The kids favorite place to have lunch.... Speederia Pizza in San Carlos.
Celia and I sat outside with Dash
Adel and Oliver on the inside of the window
Dash was shamelessly begging for pizza. He knows we can not resist him. Sure enough he ended up with the crust. Not sure what he does with his face but he makes himself look as cute as possible and stares us down.
Finally some rain! And lots of it :) Today was the perfect day for knitting, felting and sculpting. Lots of fun. I spent the morning hours knitting and drinking coffee with friends, what a treat. Thanks Becky! Since the weather was so wonderfully bad I had the excuse to stay inside and continue crafting throughout the day!
The spun cotton bunnies and bird received a coat of paint, tomorrow they will get dressed. I also got a chance to finish a felted mouse for Celia. Now I am moving on to tackle a knitting pattern I do not quite understand..
Today was one of those days when you know you should be doing something useful, instead you do the opposite. Do you ever have any of those days?
I had a wonderful time though. Spent the day in San Francisco. Met friends at Citizen Cake on Fillmore St., stopped at a bookstore in Japan Town. Bought a sewing book with great patterns. Cant wait to try some of them. Stopped by Union St. before I rushed
back to San Carlos just in time to pick Celia up from school.
We had breakfast at the Cliff House last Friday. The fog was so heavy that the air was filled with misty rain. We sat by the window and looked out at the ocean. It was beautiful in a sad green-grey way. We were warm and so happy inside.
