My Week in Photos: May 5 – May 11
A week of chili, chili and more chili. I attempted to cook every day, but failed.
And of course lovely friends, Gettyland work and a very happy family Mother's day weekend. Enjoy!

We played a game of Mario Party to end the eve

Kids recognize Tweedy around the neighborhood, I think mostly because the landlord's daughter pet sat for me once and I'm pretty sure she showed him to the kids in the neighborhood. He gets so much attention now, just stopped in the road!

Back to the Center

Oh yeah…my office is different now. At least I have this plant! Helps me breathe.

I got this little slow cooker months and months ago, but finally brought it out to try making chili!

It was just such a great weekend. I'm so blessed to have such tight family.

My life

Everybody was excited and awake so early. Went swimming and taught lil' cousins to boogie board at like 9 AM. The Pacific Ocean is COLD.

Later that evening I found myself at 3rd street promenade in Santa Monica. Was nice to see a bit of a hustle and bustle.

IMG_5510
Had to stop at the candy store! I found a "crunchie" which I was told is similar to a velvet crumble. I would love to figure out a snack trade system here sometime. I can send some US treats and salties, and we can all switch snacks and favorites…haha, I dunno. Would have to work it out.

IMG_5511
Running out of the theater after Spiderman 2. Very sleepy.

Many more photos coming…

I'm very sad to report that the first attempt at recoving my data on my hard drive failed. Waiting to hear if the 2nd attempt works. FINGERS CROSSED.

I guess losing all that data has made me shoot film. Can't lose that.

Much love friends! Happy Mother's Day.
