Fridays Fave 5 ~ San Francisco Style…

The lovely Susanne at Living to Tell the Story hosts Fridays Fave Five where we recap our favorites from the past week.


I met Dear in San Francisco on Saturday to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary so here are my Faves from the time we spent there and a couple from home.

1. Celebrating our Anniversary with a walk around the city and dinner at Scoma’s Italian Fish Restaurant in Fisherman’s Wharf and our lunches at Johnny Foley’s Irish Pub.

2. Walking into some old churches with the most amazing interiors and stained glass windows.

3. The 4 story Christmas Tree at Nieman Marcus in San Francisco and all the other wonderful Christmas displays in the city.

4. Coming home and seeing the Tumbleweed tumbling around the neighborhood!


5. Finding treasures at my favorite thrift stores in both Washington and Camarillo. These sweet Brambly Hedge Tea cups, 1 for each season, were found at Goodwill in Washington. Only the Autumn one has the saucer so I’ll have to be on the lookout for the other saucers. :0)

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007 to 2015 hostage and has replaced them all with ugly black and grey boxes asking for a ransom to have them re-published. Such a frustrating bother.

Ho, Ho, Ho!

My time in Washington is winding down. Yesterday was a full day. I got my roots taken care of by my favorite hairdresser in the Seattle area. I wrote the Christmas letter, addressed the Christmas cards, and now all I have to do is stuff the letter in each one and we’re good to go. I took out the decorations that are going to go up this year and they are all in place. A scaled down Christmas for us. On Saturday morning I fly to meet Dear in San Francisco. We are going to celebrate our anniversery dinner at Scoma’s on Fisherman’s Wharf. We’ll take the trolley from the hotel. Most of my time in San Francisco I’ll be exploring on my own as Dear is busy with a conference there. I’ll let you know what I see next week. Enjoy your day everyone…
