A potpourri

By
Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

As Friday draws to a close, my mind is whirling around, not settling on any one thing. This entire day has been that way, from my morning yoga at home practice, to my early morning "wake up and breathe" walk. From lunch with a client/friend to our check up on the renovations of a duplex that will soon be ready for a new tenant. And dodging rain drops once again as I drove home. A nap didn't settle me down, nor did cooking a new meatless recipe for dinner (yummy!) 

It seems fitting that this blog post just has random pictures that I enjoy. I hope you'll find one that makes you smile. 

If there is any theme, it could be called, "color in the urban environment." The dog portraits were showcased at a gallery called "Batch" a couple of blocks from home. The license plate was spotted as we walked home from dinner one night recently, and the hot sauces caught my eye during a visit to Rainbow Grocery in San Francisco. Capurro's is a fun, down-to-earth restaurant at the north end of Fisherman's Wharf, and shown in the first photo.

Good morning Sheila Anderson and Brian England - some days the brain just fires in random directions - yesterday was that day for me. I suspect I've gotten that out of my system for a bit!

Lottie Kendall -  Three times? I knew you were a survivor; however, I did not know that you had it 3 times. I can sympathize but I have not lived in your skin. Cancer threatens so many lives, people, including animals. Nobody that I know says as a child, when I grow up I want to get cancer. I know you didn't ask for it and you must have had many highs and lows in your life including poking and probing. No, I can't say you ever had or ever will take "any day for granted."

May you continue to live with purpose, love in your heart, and your passion for life. I wish you good health always.

Hi Lottie, Thanks for sharing the potpourri of colors!  The restaurant looks like a wonderful place to visit with the bright colors everywhere.  Very earthly.  Seems like you know how to take care of yourself taking in the bright things in your neighborhood.

I might have to do yoga at home as well. I went to two different types of yoga classes this week in Midtown. One was yin (which is what I do in Hawaii at Holualoa), and it consisted of 6 poses while the yoga instructer sneaks up to molest you, like rubs your feet or your head, LOL.

And the other yoga was in a room heated to 98 degrees, very strenguous, barking out poses, one of which I cannot do: stand on one leg raising one leg behind you and pulling it up over your head with your hand. Half-way through I had to leave or die.

Thanks, Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - I'm in good health once again I'm happy to report. With these recent treatments behind me, I've also changed my diet, am working more on stress reduction, increasing my yoga and meditation, etc. Yesterday was a day off; my husband and I had a wonderful hike on Mt. Diablo. I opted to return to the car via a more challenging route and came home tired, happy and well-exercised. Loving it!

Hi Gloria Todor - Capurros, at the north end of Fisherman's Wharf is a delightful family owned and run business. They painted the exterior to honor their grandmother's love of Sicilian wedding carts which apparently are painted in a similar fashion.

Hi Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents - 30 minutes or so of yoga at home each morning is nice--I choose poses that speak to me on any particular day, and always incorporate some breathing techniques and meditation. Only problem--I can get lazy and avoid poses that are good for me but I don't enjoy!

I think it's time I get back to Yoga on the Labyrinth at Grace Cathedral on Tuesday evenings, a San Francisco tradition much better than Rice-a-Roni!!

Hannah, I snapped the picture of the hot sauces on a visit to Rainbow Grocery, a co-op here in San Francisco. I was blown away with how many varieties there are and --- I love the colors!

I love the vivid color of the building.  I especially like the yellow Corvette, and I'm envious of the selection of sauces.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat I thought the license plate, "Guudtym" was perfect for that Corvette!
