A little Stitchin' and a Coffee Run

Gentle Friends, still plugging away at Beatitudes... here's a snaperoo.......

I know I'd much further along if it weren't for my phone... my phone you ask, yes that evil little device that I've put the TikTok app on... and the wast of time that has ensued is crazy, but I get to watching and then an hour passed... I'm amazed at the creativity and fun that those little snippets show... so brave TikTokkers you got a fan out here by the bay!!

I had a question a while back about SF and hows the lockdown going.  Well, it's a lockdown.  We've both been home working since the first part of March and there seems to be no end to that.  So' I'm really grateful I can do my job remotely and have not been made redundant.  So many of our friends have and are moving away so rent is trending down quite a bit, but when you could get $7000 a month back in February for a very smallish apartment.. $4000 a month now is a bargain.  

The one fun thing we've sort of kept up is running down to the Starbucks for morning coffee.  We place the order online run down to 24th Street pick it up and bring it back home.  All while wearing the mask.  It takes about 10 minutes total but at least we get out of the house ...

.. I usually get (even with the weather here hovering in the upper 50's every day) a venti iced double shot with the 2% milk and mini vanilla scones... it ain't much to write home about but 5 shots of espresso with a shot of simple syrup and a splash of milk - nectar!!

There you go sports fans.  Thanks for stopping by do stop again. Stay Safe!!

Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!


  1. Great progress on the Beatitudes!
    Thanks for sharing a snapshot of lockdown life. I'm just amazed at how different things are depending on where you live. I'm just ready for the craziness to end...

  2. 7000 a what? Almost choked on my death by chocolate zucchini bread! 4000 didn't go down any easier. Yikes!

    Stitching is looking good. Glad you're able to work from home. The hounds must love it too.

  3. Looking good....of course I love the little crows (yes they are crows...! I just know LOL)...on plants on either side. Yeah, I am with Marly on the choking part....EEEEK That would be a mortgage payment for a year on a nice modest home in these parts. Glad you are coping well with the lockdown. ~Robin~

  4. Dearest Edgar: I love your Sampler it is beautiful.
    I love Starbucks, the scones and the lemon loaf are so good, I am addicted to Starbucks, it is nice when the Baristas see us walk in they automatically start our drinks, we are there so much.
    I cannot believe your weather is so cold, brrr, 50 is cold to me.
    I have always known rent is high but San Francisco is worth it.


  5. Your sampler is coming along. I haven't fallen down the Tiktok thing (and truth be told, I don't even really know what it is), but I am guessing it is tech related. Glad that you are able to work from home! Those mini vanilla scones look yummy.

  6. That sampler is going to be just beautiful!!We have kept up an occasional outing at Starbucks too. It helps to make life seem a bit more normal. I have a friend who has only been out for PT since March. It has me a little concerned.

  7. Beatitudes ... so beautiful... both in spirit and workmanship.
