Photo Fun Day Friday

Happy Friday!! This week flew by for me, how about you? Got anything fun planned for the weekend? Hubby is originally from Louisville, so we are celebrating the Kentucky Derby tomorrow, as we do every year, but this year we can actually host a little party at our new home. We are so excited.

I plan to make a bunch of food that reminds Mark of home, most of which I cannot eat myself, but I definitely don’t mind one bit. I think Mark actually gets more homesick this time of year than at the holidays. It is such a big deal there. So I plan to make some Hot Brown Sandwiches, a black-eyed pea salad, pimento cheese dip, jalapeño cornbread, deviled eggs, apple cobbler and a bourbon pecan tart and of course mint juleps. Then we are picking up some homemade fried chicken from the market at the corner. Depending on how all the cooking and baking goes I will try to share some of the recipes on here, afterward. But I make no promises!

Having a home yoga practice means sometimes you get a little kitty in your down dog.

And sometimes your mat gets taken over by a real dog.

Mark was in San Francisco for a few days for work and Seri really missed him. She wouldn’t leave his side when he got home.

Tried running on the beach this week since I have been having a little knee pain. It felt really great on my knees and my back.

Discovered the most teeny tiny adorable hummingbird nest, cozied up in our grapevines. It is barely 2″ wide. If that. Incredible.

Had a growler of local organic grapefruit kombucha delivered by bike from local husband and wife company, Fine Feathers Kombucha. I just adore where I live.

I *think* I found what I was looking for on yesterday’s run. I KNOW that Seri did. Look how happy she is

Went to the doctors yesterday for the first time in over a year. It really is the one place in the whole wide world that can give me anxiety as soon as I walk in. I really don’t like doctors.

    I canNOT believe you have a freakin BANANA tree in your BACKYARD! And a hummingbird nest. Officially, unabashedly, with all of my might, 100% jealous of you. 🙂 And I can’t even EAT bananas. (Not on a regular basis, anyway.)

    Great pictures. I especially love the hummingbird nest. I have never seen one before. When we take the time to look than we will really see. Love the dog and the cat too! I love where you live too 🙂 Have a beautiful day and a great weekend!
