Reading Log: August 2012

It’s time for another monthly update on my Reading Log!  August seemed to last exactly one month—it didn’t fly by, but it didn’t drag either.  I read a few really good books, and now that Fall is almost here, I’m starting to get excited for the upcoming holidays.  I can’t wait to visit and be… Continue reading Reading Log: August 2012

City Sights: Picnic Lunch in the Castro

A couple weekends ago, Sam and I headed to the Castro district for lunch.  We didn’t plan ahead very well—as usual—but despite a few surprises, we enjoyed the day out. I don’t know much of the history of San Francisco (except for that earthquake in 1906 of course!) and I especially don’t know much about… Continue reading City Sights: Picnic Lunch in the Castro

While we… Continue reading City Sights: Street Food Festival

Meow Monday: Queens of the Couch

It’s pretty obvious who rules the couch. Cora loves to sleep on top of the couch. Tali can usually be found sleeping on the bed during the day, but at night she likes to sleep in MY spot. When it’s bedtime, sometimes she gives me the stink eye when she’s ready to go to sleep.… Continue reading Meow Monday: Queens of the Couch
