MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: JUNE 3–9, 2019!

My weekend in the desert in Palm Springs spending time at the Palm Springs Museum of Art and buying too many lavender products I never thought I needed in at the lavender festival.

Enjoy!

Starting the week giving Sufi and Tweedy a ride to the doggy dentist for a teeth cleaning. Good luck in there, boyos.

Making a few to bring with me to Rachel’s wedding celebration in a few weeks

Sufi had some dental surgery so he was feeling a little out of it, poor boy.

His little snout is swollen 😦

Tristan brought me this Queen bobblehead back from his trip in London, and sadly it is too cloudy to activate

Finally got my shit together and just worked through the puzzle and got her done. The dark background was really a challenge. For a second, thought we lost a piece but we figured it out.

Morning light, one last look at the puzzle before she’s back in the box.

Friday morning I hit the road and head to Palm Springs for a work presentation.

Left the office after lunch and made it in a few hours.

Views of the mountains at the hotel, very nice

I’m a dummy and forgot that the desert is HOT. I dressed for the LA gloomy June weather, and had pretty much only pants. Not my smartest move.

I wandered out of the hotel and a street fair was setting up

Wandered into a shop called Cocky Cactus, how could I not buy these chili placemats.

Untitled
While I was inside the Cocky Cactus, a friendly street fair vendor walked in and handed out free frozen custard sandwiches.

It was like over 90 degrees and the city had an atmosphere with all the misters.

Untitled

Couldn’t resist trying a few things from the taco vendor.

Untitled
Not appropriate desert dress, but I’m giving a presentation so figured I’d put pants on.

The mini conference was at the Palm Springs Art Museum, so during breaks we got to wander around the museum.

Left a work dinner and then Andrea swooped me up in her car. We were both randomly in Palm Springs this weekend and decided to hang and do the Aerial Tram.

Parked and rushed toward the aerial tram entrance

We missed a tram that left right as we arrived so tragically we had to wait for the next one and missed the sunrise one up. 😦

Going up in the tram and seeing the city come into view was pretty nice too though

  1. Ah, I just realized at the end looking at your Tony’s picture that your posts are featuring about a month past… at first I thought this was July 3-9 and thought you were in Palm Springs when those earthquakes hit! I was like, “Oh no she’s even closer than she’d normally be! :O” Did you feel both quakes pretty good?

    The Palm Spring Museum looks nice! I enjoyed all the photos. Were these just the ones that caught your eye or did you try to just feature a lot of the installations?

    I live in Orange County, CA, so Palm Springs for us, too. Or LA, haha. I have quite a few co-workers who love Glen Ivy Hot Springs in Corona to have a relaxing weekend away but nearby. I’ve never been to a spa before, though! And I’ve only ever driven through/by Palm Springs!

    1. I am a little behind!!! But yes this is June! Weirdly, I didn’t feel any of the recent earthquakes. Did you feel them?

      I was just shooting whatever grabbed my attention! There is definitely a lot more to see at the museum.

      If you ever make it to the Glen Ivy Hot Springs, let me know how it is! I have family out in Corona, I wonder if they’ve been…

      1. I did feel them both! The second one was scarier… I was on edge for like the next week afterwards. Haha, but then again, I’ve always had a strong fear of earthquakes. Probably all those drills in elementary school!

        Will do! It seems like it might be fun to grab a few friends and relax there. They have mud pools. >:O

  2. Palm Springs Art Museum reminds me of the High Museum in Atlanta (the cafe like the V&A in London). Augusta is 3 hours from anything you want to do, which is nice. Savannah is a nice weekend getaway, or Atlanta. It’s also just an hour and a half from Columbia, South Carolina which is a very charming, tiny capital city.
