MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: MAY 11-17, 2015!
This is a week of lots of Gettyland work, design struggles for Dick Duquesne, and a end of week mini-vacation to San Juan Capistrano to see the “historic” California bits and bobs.
Heading off to a middle school today to give a career day talk. Pretty nervous. I am not cool. I was not cool in middle school…*haunting memories*
“Want to see your selfie in the yearbook?”
The museum’s awesome paintings conservator giving a super engaging talk right before ours *the stress*
Feeling drained but I’m a dummy and went grocery shopping.
And this awesome awesome chicken soup with ginger and vinegar…so delightful. Will definitely make again.
Woke up early to finalize potential poster designs for Zeen’s live show
Another color besides brown on my plate for lunch
Attempting to describe an auxiliary cord extender to my mom via texting and post it drawings.
Went shopping near Kiki’s without a bag…and am too stubborn to pay 10 cents so I went for the classic lime pocket
Must document every cooking success
New pug pillow is the perfect nap item
Weird leftovers dinner of sausage, toast, corn and salad.
MEGAN! Finally connected with her on one of her lil’ trips up to the Getty
Moody skies on the afternoon stroll
Heading to Santa Monica, I’m going to be taking a class this summer…I’ll be in Santa Monica a few times a week starting in June
There’s a resident dog. I’ll like it here.
OH MY GODDDDDDD pouring rain when I left the info session
Wet hair AND I couldn’t find my car in the parking lot
But then I became Totoro and everything was alright
Dirty mirror, but I’m bundled and ready for the rain this time.
Back for another romp at Zeen’s family house.
Decided to explore the “historic” area of San Juan Capistrano
Left him there for a few hours
Decided to check out the San Juan Capistrano Mission. I think this was my mission in 5th grade.
Missions are weird spaces. Lots of California kids (maybe speaking too general here) have done mission projects, built missions, and know that California is the coast with all these cool old buildings. Even at the mission things are framed like “Native Americans were converted! They got housing! They had ‘jobs’ around the mission!” But…we know how that really went…
I mean, it is still dazzling and exciting to visit an actual historic site that dates earlier than the 1800s.
The ruins of the great stone church
California earthquakes make stone buildings a struggle
Time to get serious. I’ve never been to the Costco liquor section…everything is HUGE!!!!! (And nah, we didn’t get the patron)
But we did stock up for a weekend with friends.
Enjoyin’ some relaxing this afternoon
Doin’ a puzzle while I wait for friends to arrive
Make some margaritas. Friends arrived pretty late…
Next morning. Tweedy can’t make the jump.
Kicked off the morning with more puzzlin
So sad that the family’s house is sold. Lots of memories here.
Played about 2 turns of Risk before putting it away
What having my hair in that bun did to my overall head. I’ll leave you with that.
Much love friends.
