Sick day

I have the dreaded summertime cold, so instead of pictures of my new hair cut here are pictures from around the house.
 
I am obsessed with glass floats. I bought these in a shop on the side of Kam Highway in Kahuku.
 
Impulse purchase at SoHa. It so neatly summarizes my (non-working) life.
 
Could not resist a bright green orchid for $5 at the farmers market. Unfortunately, I cant keep anything alive so I predict death in the near future.
 
This amazing hammock shipped from Mexico on Monday and arrived here on Thursday. Unfortunately the stand I ordered for it will take another few weeks to get here.
 
I love love love these plantscapes from Magnolia- I ended up buying two. Finally, something green that I cannot kill.
 
And finally my breakfast pineapple, just because.

Balboa Park


Hey, look, another not-super-awkward face. Maybe it was the margarita I had for lunch at the Prado.

Anyways, packing for 7 days with only a carryon bag, the requirement to pack a suit, and temperatures ranging from 95F to 40F means lots of repeats as evidenced here.

Tide pools

After flying down from Monterey, I kicked off my boots, threw on some sneakers, and poked around the Point Loma tide pools for the afternoon. I needed all the traction I could get, as it prevented me from face planting in a kelp-filled tide pool and left to the crabs. Yet despite years of following Rule #1 of the Ocean - never turn your back on the ocean- I turned my back and was doused by rogue wave.
Back turned!
