more funston

i can't help but take pictures of this place. especially riley here. he loves fort funston so much. i call it his "happy place". that's why we must go here everyday. so riley can have his fix. it's pretty nice for humans too. it's sort of where i get centered everyday. there's all this beauty and so many happy dogs everywhere. how can you not feel intoxicated after being here. some days the ocean is so blue and all the plants are so green and then other days are like this. full of mystery and magic looming around the corner. the flowers are starting to bloom in all kinds of colors. i can't wait. it is super exciting that plant season is back. last week i got this awesome new succulant. it's a japanese succulant called drunken dreams. what makes it even better is i bought it with my friend who was visiting from japan and it was all coincidence. i didn't find out where the plant was from until i talked to the guy at the counter. well, i should be off. we need to go to riley's happy place.

happy birthday to him

yesterday was the finn's birthday. when it comes to birthdays we are opposites. i love presents and flowers and balloons and all that comes with birthdays. peter can't stand the attention and would rather act as if it was just a regular day. well, he does like being able to get his way because it's his day. we went out and had a drink and got some mexican food at jay n'bee. always so delish.
we have officially been back in san francisco for a year. so crazy how that happens. one minute you're here and then you turn around and you're over there. we are so happy to be here. we really have found our paradise. when we were moving around all the time i never felt the way i do living here. it was always what's next? i viewed everything as being part of the adventure. nothing was ever permanent because we were anti permanence. now life is much different. i crave roots. heck i love plants now. that says it all. in the past i wouldn't be caught dead investing in something like a miniature pony palm. my age probably has something to do with all these changes. not that i'm complaining. this new direction of my journey is a welcomed treat.

went to the design within reach warehouse sale yesterday. we waited in a line as long as what you would find at disneyland. unfortunately once we reached the end there wasn't an exciting ride. there was some not so great over priced furniture. some stuff was okay but nothing that really sang to me. probably better that way since i don't really need to be buying furniture. you never know with those things. better to have gone and found nothing than to be wondering what you missed out on.

turns out i got myself a case of the flu. it took me awhile to figure it out because i'm stubborn like that. the truth of the matter is i hate being sick and refuse to come to terms with it when i am. i hate feeling weak. something that is a major part of being sick. so i've managed to get a whole lot of television watched and that's about it. this afternoon i have started to feel human again. riley is such a great dog. he so knows how to chill when i need him to. we went on a long walk this afternoon so now he's pooped. poor peter has been working nonstop. he deserves a vacation somewhere exotic. where that is i'm not sure. maybe i should start doing some research and plan our fantasy vacation. you never know.
