San Francisco

I thought I would quickly share my trip to San Francisco to see my eldest son.
He works in the city so I did not ask him to take me there to shop or do touristy things because I know he does not care to be there as he is always there. However, he did want to take me to one of his favorite restaurants...Gary Danko.

I snapped a few pictures of our drive. This is not the Golden Gate Bridge, but it runs almost parellel.

The only picture I got of my son...We just were not really thinking about pictures. It has been 4 long years since I had seen him. Too long!

This is a picture I already had of my son :)

A little gift the chef gives to the women before you leave the restaurant...banana bread.
I have to say this was the ultimate dinning experience. Waiters galore to serve you and every bite of food was beyond fabulous!!! It was expensive, but worth it. Nice for special occasions.


Let me just say this trip was all about the food! My favorite burger place. We got ours without the bun!
sliced pickles, homemade thousand island dressing, grilled onions, grilled burger wrapped in lettuce.

The airlines that took me out was suppose to get me to San Francisco by 11a.m. on Friday morning, but   it was 15 long hours! I did not arrive until 7:30pm. Needless to say, I was not happy...long waits, etc.
I just might have gone to the city and spent a little time there, but since it was late and the day was long, we opted to head to a local Mexican food restaurant and enjoy a Margarita with our dinner :)

I had high hopes of finding some crafty, fun kind of places, but did not know where to go. But, the creative Goddess was smiling at me and on my return trip there were a few delays, but not as bad. I do understand things happen, but I will not fly this particular airline again. I was waiting on my flight home from Philadelphia and I wanted to have a salad and could not find a vendor near my terminal , so I ventured to another part of the airport and LOOK what I found!!!!
The most amazing dolls ever!
I was trying to hurry, with my salad in hand to get back to my part of the airport so the pictures were snapped hastily! I wish I would have had time to linger and absorb what I was looking at...sigh!

The dolls are created by Ellen Benson.....

There were so many!!!


Just fabulous!!!!

My book for the trip was this:

by my favorite author, Lynn Andrews

I am sooo grateful to have been able to go to Sunny California to see my beloved son!
I got to come back to snow...unbelievable! 
It is all good :)

Times are changing

(My daughter is teaching me how to use my new phone and so we took a picture of me while learning about Instagram...so much technology...
I was told I need to "get with the times" and put away my little flip phone lol!)

 I have been missing my blog postings and visits...
In this world we strive to improve and move forward upward in a positive direction and career-wise that has happened for me. Needless to say, I am soooo busy with work and family right now that it leaves me almost no free time for being creative. I hope once I settle in to my new career that I will be able to create a space of time for my beloved creative endeavors. 
I will try to sneek a peek of all of you when I can and maybe even comment. Until then,
I am wishing all of you much joy and happiness!
