The sign of June

The Meeting

Look who I met . Hanging outside in the yard .  Nesting atop the electrical meter. I looked because I’d made note to self last time I was in the yard to take a broom to the ratty looking nest. The nest looks much better with her in it. I chose to leave her there.  That way I feel I can at least offer some protection from the thuggish cats in the neighbor hood

Just short two weeks since I initiated this post. I call her Byrdie. Not very creative name but I check daily to see if she’s still there. Women have it hard. We must persist

My work for women kind.

Mission taco joint

I stopped at mission taco on a whim for a fast lunch  with a friend mid week. Not everyone is retired and can be leisurely At mid day.  I quite enjoyed it, the prices were very reasonable and the flavors were fantastic.  You can experience a lot of variety in just a few street size tacos .


Yes I’ve heard the various jokes about the falafel guy. I don’t have much of a track record outside of Italian, creole  and French foods. My daughter loves falafel I glanced at a  recipe, my response was this seems doable plus the ingredients list was a lot of good stuff. Herbs cumin garlic onions, garlic, and garbanzo beans.  Sounded good for me.

Learning something new. It’s a good thing.

Oh spring!

strange things

I ran across a promo video for UGGS that cracks me up
So what do you think?

She was warned

She was warned. She was given and explanation. Never the less she persisted.

Now if this was s smallchil they’d get a time out.  Elizabeth Warren is no small child 

We must all persist 

creation and consumption

Be a creator first and a consumer second.

Try a new ratio – try to create more than you consume. Cook more food and eat out less. Brew your own coffee rather than visiting a coffee shop everyday. Focus on refining your wardrobe rather than growing it. Often it’s our boredom that leads us to shop or consume things we don’t really need. Focus on spending that energy elsewhereIs Consuming Less the Answer to Creating More?… Darling magazine.com

These notions are all very true. i have been ill for the past few months  and boredom has led to consumerist desires on a day basis. The darling magazine  article was a joyful and inspiring find. These are thoughts ai can take action  upon.
