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.
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
Burrito bowl materials, fresh off the stove
Sufi had some dental surgery so he was feeling a little out of it, poor boy.
His little snout is swollen 😦
June gloom isn’t messing around
Tristan brought me this Queen bobblehead back from his trip in London, and sadly it is too cloudy to activate
In the clouds
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.
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.
Couldn’t resist trying a few things from the taco vendor.
Not appropriate desert dress, but I’m giving a presentation so figured I’d put pants on.
Hotel, coffee, baby art
The mini conference was at the Palm Springs Art Museum, so during breaks we got to wander around the museum.
Went down to the museum’s cafe (with the best artichoke wallpaper) to have some coffee
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
Icecream night cap
Check out morning out of the hotel. Had the bed to myself but still piled the pillows on one side
Hugh Kaptur architectural show
Time to head back to LA, grabbed a coffee, threw on Race Chaser…hit the road…
The Lavender Festival! Drove past signs for this so I decided to turn off the highway and check it out.
The festival had food, drinks, and all kinds of lavender products.
Soap, honey, chocolate, yum yum
Lavender fields, not in total bloom yet
More lavender goodies
Got back to LA, and Peanut is staying with us over the weekend. A warm welcome from cousin Peanut
Dressed like a toddler for a walk around the neighborhood
Interesting, sadly didn’t try
Squirrel went off
Makeup and watching the Tony’s, cozy Sunday night in.
