A Few SF Snaps......

Gentle Friends, I found that Wednesday makes a good day to show some snaps of the City I live in - and today I though I would get back to doing just that........

.... one of the Estate sales we got to on Saturday was over in Potrero Hill area of the City..... and so I knew I had to stop on the crest of one of the streets to show the great view of the City skyline..... and yes, I illegally parked the car and stood in the street for this snap....

I've begun my annual search for Christmas tea so I thought that I should go downtown and see for myself if any has come in yet...... both places I was checking on are in the big Westfield Shopping Centre on Market Street ......  so that's were I went....


... my first stop was a Bloomingdale's, the only outlet for Kusmi tea in the city.... no Kusmi Christmas Blend .... yet.  I spoke to a very nice women working in the area of Bloomingdale's Christmas and she assured me that in a couple of weeks there would be some and to check back...... so in two weeks time I'll be back .......

....next up was Lupicia - I always love the Christmas blends they make....  but walking up to the store and still seeing Autumnal decorations my  FaLaLa was dashed.  I do love Fall, it's my favorite time of year - BUT - and this is a big butt, whoops but - I know from past years that Lupicia gets a finite amount of their Christmas teas and if I don't get some soon after it's arrival they will be start to run out - and they do not get restocked -  and then I'll be sad!!!  
Here is a snap from last years tea display.....


.... so' now I'm on their list to "call" when it comes in - and I'll make tracks to get some!!

There you go sports fans, thanks again for stopping by dos top again!!

take care,

I love seeing pictures of your beautiful city. Good luck finding the Christmas Teas. I was sad today to find out that Starbucks Peppermint Mocha is (grande) 410 calories.

I thought I was the only Southern "boy" who likes hot tea.

I love the city's skyline and all the dots of color below. Being from the south it's just plain sweetened iced tea for me. Well, maybe an occasional glass of peach tea .....always iced. I can't drink hot tea. I think the packages on the different teas are very pretty though. I do hope you find your special tea for the holidays.

Dearest Edgar:
Beautiful picture of your city.
It is green and no snow.
Mary a friend of mine used to go to Lupicia and buy me licorice tea, she does not travel anylonger.
I now get it at the Mall Of America.
Yummy.

Happy Thanksgiving
