My weekly post, “Five things for the week”, is turning into a weekly email newsletter. Each week I’ll choose five thoughts and/or updates on topics and events to share. My hope is that this format of sharing will be less scattered than my Twitter rants. And I much prefer the email newsletter format over postingContinue reading ““Five things” is a now a newsletter!”
After reading this writeup (Sacramento Bee), I added Kuji Asian Grill to our (long) list of places to try. We finally had a chance to visit on our way home from Davis, CA. My first impression upon walking into the small, fast-casual style restaurant was, “I like that it’s small and you’re up close withContinue reading “Korean food in Woodland, CA”
My Grandparents used to live in Oakhurst, CA, right outside of the southern entrance to Yosemite National Park. I was fortunate because this enabled me to visit the park, and surrounding places like Bass Lake, many times. The Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad is a memory straight from my childhood, as we stopped by topContinue reading “All aboard! Nature!”
Self-Care Sundays I’m increasingly creating a routine that ends up with Sunday’s focus on my own rest, healing, health, and overall mental state in preparation for the coming week. This comes in the form of things like Personal grooming Spending the mornings reading and writing Eating without guilt, yet still healthy and in moderation PlayingContinue reading “Five things for the week”
Read How to Break Up With Your Phone, by Catherine Price – I liked this read. The first part of the book gives you the facts and the “why”. The second part of the book talks through the “how” using a 30-day plan. While I haven’t (yet) participated in this plan, I can see howContinue reading “Recently Read, Watched, and Listened”
Today, I found myself with a meeting-free morning and an excuse to be downtown around breakfast so, I figured it was the perfect opportunity to try out the recently opened Solomon’s Delicatessen. They have been working on this one for a while so it’s very nice to have a location much closer to me. Though,Continue reading “Solomon’s on K”
This week, I finally purchased a smaller “companion” camera to carry in my everyday bag. I also wanted something on the smaller side for those weekend excursions where I want a camera but I don’t want a bigger kit with me. Just something nice and easy. Because I use the Fujifilm X system, and alreadyContinue reading “New camera, who dis?”
During yesterday’s visit to Federalist Public House, I captured two murals located nearby. All three locations (the murals and the restaurant) are within the same block in Matsui Alley. I really like both of them. I love how dreamy this one looks, especially with the color combination the artist chose. It looks like Michelle BladeContinue reading “Two murals in Matsui Alley”
Me: I’m craving a wood-fired pizza. Wife: Same. Federalist Public House has been on my list almost since the first day we arrived in Sacramento. I first saw their gorgeous wood-fired pizzas on their Instagram feed. Frankly, it’s a little mind-boggling that it has taken this long for us to try them. We found ourselvesContinue reading “Federalist Public House”
Site and Blog changes coming I’m still in my planning phase for some upcoming changes to this site. While I don’t have anything concrete to update you on now, I will say that this site will remain an “everyday” general blog. I’m putting together a personal photography website, which will have a portfolio and aContinue reading “Five things for the week”
This is likely my last AeroGarden post for the tomatoes. The plants are no longer growing in height nor width, and are really focused on just producing so, rather than continuing to post pictures like this one, I’m going to end the photos here. Y0u can see the next “harvest” coming in. I’ll most likelyContinue reading “Day 88 – AeroGarden”
It’s been far too long since my wife and I have had a chance to go out of town for the weekend. We knew it, and we knew that we were in complete control of when we would be able to. So, we made it happen this past weekend, opting to travel to my oldContinue reading “Weekend Getaway – Ventura, CA”
On day 84, I picked the first batch of heirloom tomatoes from the AeroGarden. Admittedly, I did pick some individuals from the plant in the proceeding days, just to taste. I’m really happy with the way that they turned out and cannot wait to use the rest as they come into ripeness.
It was nice returning home, after a getaway weekend, to see all of the tomatoes in different color states.
