Sausal Creek

Trying to get to Dimond Park the other day, Lauren and I made a detour into a neighborhood and found a little trail (which turned out to be a big trail) called the Bridgeview Trail. Looking at a map, it seems to connect all the way to Joaquin Miller Park, too. Here are some lo-fi barely visible camera photos!

Pacific Orchid Expo

First: fake flowers on my real arm, done by Hannah at Castro Tattoo this weekend. I like the look of the vintage floral postcards and wanted a tulip because it is my mom's favorite flower. It is a crummy photobooth photo, but you get the idea. 

Second: T took me on a surprise date to the Pacific Orchid Exposition. There were thousands, possibly millions of different orchids from all over the world: California, Florida, Hawaii, Taiwan, etc. It was amazing. I read The Orchid Thief by Susan Orlean two years ago which really piqued my interest. It was made into the movie Adaptation but as usual, the movie barely does the book justice.

Rainbow Fun with Words!

Happy belated V-Day, internets! Some of my kids used these Valentine heart letters to make words - I thought they came out pretty cute, but were only seasonably applicable for one day. Maybe I could make little rabbits or eggs to celebrate the Equinox too. 

Also, rainbow fun with words! 

Also, some kind of diorama - I still need to add little furniture, but I am hoping it will come out looking something like a cross section of a house. the blue is the bathroom and has a glitter waterfall, of course!
