The other day I spilled black ink on some patterned paper, and I thought it was an interesting shape, so today I made a little head man from it, with a pet snake!
A little Edward Lear-ish, I think.
As I mentioned, this week, I tried to do something every day that I had never done before. Let's see how I did so far.
Tuesday: Saw a personal trainer for the first time and visited Perch in Glen Park.
Wednesday: Took a brisk 40-minute walk around North Beach at lunchtime, and went to Bourbon and Branch for the first time. (It was awesome).
Thursday: Mmm, I didn't do so well on Thursday: Same bus ride to work, same sandwich, typical evening at home with a delicious Eric-made dinner of couscous salad, grilled chicken, and fava beans. (not to make you jealous, but dinners like that often await me from my husband who loves to cook. How lucky am I?)
I did get the 38AX bus home instead of the 31AX on Thursday and walked down the hill the four blocks from Geary, admiring the care people put into their small outer Richmond gardens - hardy, salt-resistant plants and native flowers and grasses. (But that's cheating a little, because I have done that once before.)
Friday: Met with the awesome trainer, Rachel, again, and beforehand walked around the skyscraper-building, Bridge-construction area of Fremont and Howard.
Saturday: Hosted a CAbi party for my friend Erin at the studio. Small turnout, but fun. Got some great clothes too.
I will continue the effort and see how successful I am next week. It's hard, which makes me realize that I need to break out of my routine a little.
