While this has been a really really weird year--an understatement--I am always and forever grateful for all that I have--certainly for the material things and the wonderful life I have, but I'm especially thankful for friends, family, and the very best husband ever. 

Please enjoy a flashback to Tallulah Mae and her delightful disdain for this glittery turkey.

 Funny: these are all sitting at tables at Bread and Cie, our fave cafe and bakery, to stop anyone from sitting inside. I do love Mr. Bill slumped down in his seat...

Nespresso Art

It has been awhile since we've looked at Nespresso art. 

Above: A three-legged sheep grazing.

2. Elephant with a ball in its trunk (seen from above) floating amidst lily pads

What do YOU see?

Petite Fungi

A miniature mushroom crop!
So very very small...doll-sized fungi.

And so cute! There were tons of them hiding under some leaf detritus.

Monday and yesterday were astronomical high tides ("king" tides), where the moon and sun exert their strongest pull on the tides. We went to Coronado, where the tides were definitely splashier than normal, though not terribly "kingly." (Where the water has something to splash against, like a cliff or rocks, it is more dramatic, obviously.) Nice nice nice, though...lovely weather, heavenly ocean smell.

It happens again next month, so maybe we'll go where things are more dramatic!

Silverwood Sunday


On Sunday, we went for a hike at the Audubon Society's Silverwood Wildlife Sanctuary. It was a little hot (freakishly so for November), but really nice.

There is a bird observation area...just as we arrived, the volunteer told us that there had been a Cooper's hawk flying low, so the birds were mostly hiding. Above is a yellow-rumped warbler.

A white-breasted nuthatch. Such funny birds...they skitter down tree trunks head first.

This area was severely damaged in the 2003 Cedar Fire, but it has recovered...this is a burned tree from that fire.
