Monday was walk2werq Monday and I had a fantastic walk the length of Fillmore and then over Fort Mason to Fisherman's wharf.  I got a bunch of pics coming down into Aquatic Park:



This looks to me like a lifeboat from the Oracle ship that capsized.  Why is it in aquatic park?



Fisherman's Wharf is much less awful in the morning when it's devoid of humans:



I headed into work.  I went home for lunch and then to the gym after work.  I kept it together.  After I headed home and had dinner and went to bed.

Sunday I rode with Wanderson and Bill out to Lucas Valley.  We had wonderful weather and I had lots of fun.  It felt like I hadn't been on my bike in forever because it had.  It's super dry in Marin.  Please send rain.

I got home in the late afternoon and got cleaned up and had dinner.  I was in bed before 8PM.

Saturday I went to a spin class in the morning and some nice lady asked me if I was all right as I was walking out.  That's how you know you've gotten your money's worth.  Mr. Poe met me at Whole Foods and then we went to Safeway and then home for lunch.  After we ran downtown to Macy and then Mr. Poe went home for a nap and I headed out to Golden Gate Park to go the the De Young.  I wanted another crack that the Modernist exhibit.  It was a gorgeous day in the park:



Pictures weren't allowed but I took some anyway.  The art in this gallery was my favorite.  In particular the Frank Stella pieces at either end.


This is AMAZING in person:


After, I wandered around the permanent collections for a while.











I headed home and Mr. Poe took me out to dinner and then we headed home and went to bed.  Fabulous day!

Thursday, September 25, 2014

It's kind of crazy how Facebook is behaving with the drag queens and their stage names and such.  I'm not interested in joining 'ello' because I think I spend too much time on social media as it is.  Also, they're invitation only which completely turns me off.  I've been using FB a whole lot less since all this drama started and have not missed it at all.  I've had more time to work out, pet the dogs and plot revenge against my nemesis Linda Lavin, TV's Alice.  I'd recommend deleting the app from your phone.  I thought I'd miss that but I do not.  I've thought about not updating my blog anymore but I think I'd pay a lot less attention and miss stuff if I wasn't always taking pictures and that's a good enough reason to keep blogging.

Thursday I took the dogs for a walk in the stroller and then worked from home for the rest of the morning.  I went to a spin class at lunch at the gym in the Castro and I went to somebody I hadn't taken a class with before and I liked it a lot.  Then I headed into the office for the rest of the afternoon.  After work I walked home up Market and then cut into the Lower Haight to check out the new construction going on Waller.  It looks fantastic and ENORMOUS.  I can't wait!



I got Mr. Poe and I dinner and then headed home.  After dinner I went to bed pretty much immediately.  It had been a very long day.

Wednesday I managed to get up and out of the house early enough to walk into work.  I only had time to come down Market but thankfully it isn't as gross as used to be in the morning and I was only horrified a couple of times by our famous street people.  I did see this enterprising dog who's a successful small business owner:


8 Octavia is EVERYTHING.  I love it.  So super fantastic.


I headed home for lunch and then to the gym after work.  I had a few minutes between work and gym and walked around a but.  I got a couple pics from Justin Hermann Plaza:



I headed home for dinner and got rained on from Castro Muni home.  I was soaking wet but I didn't care because it's been so very long.  I had dinner and then I went to bed.  Long ass day.

Monday was walk2werq Monday and I had an easy walk through the Mission and SOMA that came in at 6.6 miles.  There are some beautiful homes on South Van Ness that are a little unexpected.  Some of them are in awful shape but others are super fantastic:




I headed home over lunch and then went to a spin and then strength training class after work.  Strength training kicked my ass!  I was totally beat by the time I got home.  I had dinner and went to bed.

I slept in on Sunday and lounged around the house.  After lunch we headed down to SOMA and went' to Folsom Street Fair.  A lot of it was too gross but some of it looked like this:


Us in Wish bar on Folsom:


I had lots of fun at Folsom.  I saw tons of people I knew and thankfully none of them were engaged in activities I can never unsee.  Then we headed back to the Castro for dinner and then home for bed.
