walking Presidio Park

last weekend I went for a quick walk
to one of my favorite places in San Diego
Presidio Park, a lovely jewel of this city
anytime I know Balboa Park is going to be too crowded
or whenever I want a peaceful walk, there is
Presidio Park in Old Town
is almost never busy... I only encounter
hikers, people working out, and yes!
photographers! also the occasional picnic
I was just going for a walk, but then I had
my old point-and-shot in my purse

refreshing juice, refreshing music

a picture of my morning juice!
I use carrots, ginger, lime, cucumbers, chards, kale
celery, beets, and other veggies or fruits, parsley
the recipe changes every morning depending on
what I have available, but usually the carrots are not missing

it's so refreshing!

and refreshing too is great music!
so a link to KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic from today
with a live show from The Shout Out Louds
I didn't know this band, I really liked them!
with great music! nice way to begin a 3-day-weekend!

last week and today

today is rainy and cold
a day to stay indoors
chocolate cup in one hand
book on the other one
but oh yes, it was only two days
ago, when these cats
looked for the sliver of sun
on their catio
two days ago, was sunny and great
the weather, they meow, oh well!
