2020 & January Intentions

January 1st Tried parts of a smoked apple fritter from J.D. Flannel. Hiked 10.4 miles to Sitton Peak faster and more fearless than before. Hell’s Kitchen wasn’t open.

Sunday Bests: Cheers to Cheer! (Holiday Parties)

Girls’ Night Pajama night complete with martinis, gingerbread house, and baking cookies, which didn’t come out well after a few martinis.

The display is still working yet … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Worse Before It Gets Better

Sunday Bests: Leaf Chasing & Pumpkin Carving

In past Octobers, I’ve been to the Eastern Sierras and New Mexico for some of the most relaxing trips. Last year in October, I spent a 3-day weekend in Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear.

Sunday Bests: My So-Called Break Weekend

I was supposed to take a break this week. There were cool things happenin’ in San Diego, but gas is over $4/gallon here and I’m sick of being in traffic… and I was just overwhelmed and tired.

On Sunday night, I picked up a … Continue reading Sunday Bests: My So-Called Break Weekend
