Lunch lounging

23 Aug

I don’t know what it is about fresh air that seems to be such a necessity in my 8+hour work day but I can’t go without getting outside for a little enjoyment of the sunshine and ocean breeze.  There are many different spots I like to explore and go “lunch lounging” as I like to call it.  One of my favorites is Justin Herman Plaza.  It’s packed with people around lunch but yet there is room for everyone to have their own space.  Lately I’ve been laying right by the fountain (in the picture below) which is pretty close to being under the zip line set-up they have going in the plaza.  It’s fun to watch people leap off the platform and screech with enjoyment for about 15 seconds.  I can also see the beautiful Ferry Building, the bay bridge, the water,  and the enormous concrete monsters called the Embarcadero centers.  It’s a great space to enjoy a lunch lounge if you will.

A little fresh air is also majorly conducive to a better day.  Try it and you will see 🙂

Is it possible that summer might actually be here??

25 Jul

This weekend the weather forecast didn’t look too promising going into it but it ended up being absolutely beautiful!  It didn’t hurt that I had some very important visitors either to enjoy it with.  Saturday consisted of family brunch, followed but dinner in SF with Ian, and then Grace Potter and the Nocturnals at the most beautiful venue ever…. Mountain Winery in Saratoga with Kimmie, Ian, Shannon and Lacey.   I have some more photos from the weekend that I will post when I upload them to my computer.

Sunday was perfect.  The sun was out and the pool was calling our names.  Ian and I went over to my parents for pool time and cheeseburgers.  I haven’t had a “summer day” like this yet.  I’ve been on the go so much and the weather has been pretty unpredictable so it was nice to finally just relax.  Here’s a few photos and I have more from my nice camera of the boys lounging that I’ll upload when I get a moment.

Love eating all of the in-season fruit during the summer.  My favorites are peaches, plums and pears.  Costco recently had some EXCELLENT cartons of peaches.

I’ve been trying to work on my floating skills while wearing a sunhat hahah NOT easy but oh so relaxing.

Doing some more floating before Ian jumped on me in the pool!  This is also obviously just an illusion, I had two kick-boards under my back 🙂  I used to have all sorts of great pool floats and such but my parents have two dogs that love floatation devices as well…

I think it’s safe to say… summer is finally here or at least for the time being.
