Santa Cruz 2007

Gazos Grill, Highway 1, favorite spot of motorcyclists it seems

And with good reason, our lunch was delicious.


(At the UCSC reunion I had Joe snap a couple pictures of this display, with photo of my college roommate Lisa)

Joe is actually much happier than this quick snapshot reveals.

Dark humor in UCSC graffiti; Edward Gorey would approve, I think.


The view from Cowell College hasn't changed much, thank goodness

post-move Discardia 2007

We get sentimental about the silliest things

469155103_419250f113_o

This is the 4 cup measure we had when I was a kid and always used when making fondue. I smelled - only in my imagination - swiss cheese & tarragon when I picked it up. I am trying hard to be strong and not rescue this from the Goodwill bag. We have 3 perfectly good, much easier to clean glass Pyrex measuring cups. Sigh. Bye bye, measuring cup!

Simian Liberation Army mug

There was a purge to whittle down to a reasonable half dozen mugs, so this is a farewell photo.

Interesting construction downtown 2007

Some redundancy in this set as I was holding my phonecam up over a fence to take the shots and had to try again a few times.

Progress! 2007

Books in place

These are all our books including cookbooks & bar guides.

We decided to arrange by color, just for fun.

Ikea 2007

5:30pm car to Ikea [according to Joe's Google Calendar]


A spot cleared for the new counter extension

463602272_ac39d2eff0_o

Much progress was made subsequent to this picture. Joe built the dish cupboard. I got much of the counter assembled (with a bit of help on the two person bits). We hope to put in the drawers & put the top on the counter tonight and then be able to finish unpacking the kitchen boxes. Woo!

Frisson

Lovely soup with beautiful reflections at Frisson

458291024_37301c8c7a_o

Truly the best presentation incorporating sensory delights of the room I have ever seen. The reflection in the soup spoon was perfect too.

No damage.

And you'd be stunned at some of the stuff they brought down that narrow winding front staircase.

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
