Catching Up....

A brief summary of what I've been up to lately....

July - Went to Arcata to bum around on beaches, shop for used books and take photos.

October - Went back east to Ft. Wayne, Indiana to watch my nephew play one of his last football games. Unfortunately he sprained his ankle in a game the week before I got there and was out for the next three games.

Went to some weird gypsy event where I had my fortune divined. Nothing she said resonated with me, including her theory that I was craving feminine energy but was holding back due to an attachment to archaic beliefs.

November - Went on a poetry binge in Berkeley and ate raw, vegan "Live Nachos" at Cafe Gratitude. The nachos consisted of flax chips with spicy sunflower seed “refried beans” on a bed of mixed greens with guacamole, salsa, & cashew nacho cheese.

Saw Keller William's play an intimate show at the Sierra Nevada Brewery in Chico. Was able to walk right up to the edge of the stage and freely snap as many photos as I liked as long as the flash didn't go off.

I stole an idea from my parents and put some of my favorite rocks in a shadow box on the wall.

What a fun catching-up post. I love the rock groupings. Do you have a favorite one?

Thank you. Yes, I have two favorite rocks: the yellow/grey one in the upper right hand corner, and the green one (which is serpentine) in box to the right, below it.

Thanks for the update. The photo of the Live Nachos makes me hungry for some delicious food. And the shadow box ... yes. I want one too.

Those nachos were surprisingly tasty. I was a little skeptical of the sunflower seed "refried beans" but it was delish!

Nice post! Thank you. The wall hanging with rocks is a great idea.

Oh, and cashew cheese is da bomb.

I'm in love with your rock display. We don't have cool rocks in Kentucky. :^P I have a shelf like that back in PA that is filled with miniature animal figurines.

AAAA Ft Wayne?? You were only 4 1/2 hours away from us! So close and yet so far away.

It's funny that people are liking the rock display because I threw that pic in there as an afterthought.

How is it possible that there are no cool rocks in Kentucky?

How lovely. I love the rocks and the Buddha. What a wonderful catch up post. Thank you for sharing this.

I'm in your neck of the woods these days you know... ;)

A box of rocks
The most memorable Christmas gift that I received from my folks was when I was around ten; they gave me a box of rock/mineral samples.

Re: A box of rocks
Do you still have these rock/mineral samples?
