Tonight (Saturday) was pretty low key.. I babysat my favorite 2-year-old (who lives down the block).. so we jumped on his trampoline, ate some dinner, played with blocks, rough-housed, and watched some Sesame Street.  By the way, the current “Gordon” on that show sounds a whole lot like a mellow Samuel L.  Just an observation.

Goodnight world.. I’m going to crash until my pillow gets home. 🙂

24-hour Summer Vacation

Filed under: Drool, Life — Tags: , , , , , , — marimcfly @ 10:43 pm

Yesterday was excellent.  This is my only week off, and I had to go in for jury duty today.. so yesterday I figured I should cram as much Summer-y goodness as possible into the day.  Here’s how it went:

  1. Morning run
  2. Lazy breakfast and reading for fun
  3. Farmers’ Market at The Grove for lunch (fresh seafood pasta salad and frozen strawberry lemonade)
  4. Getty Center (Japanese Lacquer exhibit and a walk through the garden)
  5. Stop at Robek’s for a smoothie
  6. Alibi Room for (more) Kogi tacos with my TCS fam
  7. Watching the Lakers DOMINATE at Andrew’s place
  8. DVD night in Pasadena

Literally.. it was the most fun-filled day I’ve had in a really long time.. with the perfect balance of planning and spontaneity.  I only have pictures from the Getty garden and Alibi Room, so here they are.

And Alibi Room.. I remembered to take a pic of the tacos this time! 🙂

Hollie is sooooo ready.

I’m really glad I did everything I did yesterday, because today I sat in the Jurors’ Lounge from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, minus the lunch break.  And the tv only played TMZ and Tyra.  Luckily, I had a book, a sudoku puzzle, my Blackberry, and my iPod.  Whew.. But now I’m free!  🙂
