A Little Stitchin'

 Gentle Friends, I got some of the light blue stitching in on Fruits... here is a snaperoo...

... although there is some stitching in the open space to the right I am going to hold off until next month to stitch this, it's not much more than vines and leaves so I'll stitch it in when I get the next piece of the chart.

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

A Little Stitchin'

 Gentle Friends, here are a couple of snaps of the stitching this week...

.. I completed the scripture part of Paradise... and...

... got busy on the dark blue parts of the next part on Fruits...

I'm not sure how much stitching I'll get done this week as I smashed my thumbnail against the dryer yesterday morning and it's throbbing to beat the band... the little bit of stitching on the dark blue I got done was very uncomfortable so we'll see as the week wears on.

That's about it for today's sports fans.  Thanks for stopping by do stop again.  Stay Safe!

A Little Brunchin'

 Gentle Friends, I've been meaning all week to get this post up... so here goes... last Sunday we headed out to brunch after Mass with some friends to a place we last went to over 16 months ago... The Presidio Social Club Exchange located in the historic Presidio...  and since it is Summer here in SF and the Presidio is right on the Bay it was a windy, overcast 50 degrees... we sat outside on the deck under heat lamps.... chilly but fun!!  Here are some snaps...

... the front of the Social Club, the deck is around to the left side and behind ...

... I had a big cup of coffee and a large bowl of "East-West Chicken soup"  it was quite tasty very similar to Tom Yum Gai you would get in a Thai restaurant...

Rico got the Croque Madame, grilled ham and cheese with an egg popped on top, 
along with a Rose Sangria...

Julie got the Exotic Mushroom Quiche...

and Denise got Mary's Chicken Salad... the girls got Mimosas to drink

we got an order of truffle fries for the table, they stayed warm for about 1/2 minute but even cold were delicious!!  It was fun to see Julie and Deinse after so long, we last went to dinner two weeks before the lockdown last year...we've been friends for years since we all worked together on the SF Stock Exchange.....

There you go sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again.  Have a super weekend and I'll stop in on Monday with a stitching update.  Stay Safe!

A Little Stitchin'

Gentle Friends, although I would have usually switched over on the 1st to Fruits, I have kept up with Paradise this past week... here's a snaperoo...

... the color is way off in the picture, sorry.  I really wanted to finish up the Pslam before I put it down to work on Fruits... and once I set my mind to something there is very little that will deter me from my goal!   Hopefully, I'll have finished up this last section and gotten to work again on fruits before next week.

That's about it for today's sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again.  Stay Safe!

A Little Breakfast

Gentle Friends, my story continues... since we are giving up the physical office I needed to make a trip over the Bay Bridge to the office to get my stuff in my area...

(isn't this a great picture of the Bay Bridge span from SF to Treasure Island) since I had been taking some days off around the 4th and we decided to go over on Saturday.  We headed over early so we could have breakfast at a great diner called Betty's Ocean View Diner... 

which by the way has no view of the ocean, the bay, or any water I could make out and is located on 4th Street Berkeley...  this is a really popular place for the area so we got there at 7:30 and were third in line when they opened up at 8.   We got an inside booth!!  The line was enormous the whole time we were there.

... great shot of my finger, but I loved the giant piece of pie hanging over the counter service area... I do love a good piece of pecan pie!!  I had looked at the menu online and knew what I was going to order...

... and I ended up ordering a Souffle Pancake, with apples...

... imagine a puffy, eggy popover... delish!!

Michael ordered the souffle with summer fruit...

Rico got eggs over hard with crispy bacon ... and rye toast... he hates rye bread it was supposed to be sourdough...

... and John got the Banana Pancakes, which he said were delicious.

So, things are getting back to a more normal pace out here.  We went to a BBQ at a friend's house on the 4th and that was fun... and the weather has been really super SF Summer weather, lots of fog, and the temps hovering in the mid to low 50's.... gotta love this Bagdad By the Bay!!!

Thanks for stopping by do stop again.  Stay Safe!
