Monday was Walk2werq Monday and I had a great walk over Lone Mountain and Pacific Heights.  It came in at about 7.6 miles (!).  I got some pics of some of the super fantastic homes on Broadway in Pacific Heights in the Gold Coast.

This is super modern, sharp and awesome.  I think it was recently updated.  I love it:



I like this Georgian place but I love the conservatory in the front.  Fancy:





This is an apartment building on Broadway that is growing on me:


This was the view from my office window as I was getting ready to go home.  So many questions:


I went to a spin and then weight training class after work and then I headed home for dinner.  Then I got cleaned up and went to bed early.  I was super beat.

Sunday, July 17

Sunday we slept in and then finished cleaning up from the party.  The dogs didn't want to get up:



We went to the Lookout in the afternoon to work the Different Spokes fundraiser.  Then we had an awesome Chinese dinner at the new place on 16th and Sanchez and then headed home for bed.

Saturday I threw myself a birthday party and it was lots of fun.  I made, as usual, an armada of desserts:


Butterscotch tarts, penuche, choupettes:


Genoise filled with chocolate cream and frosted with seven minute frosting:


Bombe Royale:


Guests:




It was a great party!  We were in bed by 9PM.  Long day.

Monday was walk2werq Monday and I had a fabulous walk out to Grand View Park in Golden Gate Heights and then through Saint Francis Wood to Ocean and then Balboa Park.  It came in at 6.1 miles.  Here are some pics from Grand View Park:




I walked to Japantown Center over lunch (4 miles) and then went to my spin and then strength training class after work.  I was so beat when I got home.  What a day!

Saturday I was supposed to lead the Different Spokes Jersey ride but I still felt really crappy so Miss Gaus led it for me and I stayed in bed.  Brendan stopped by late morning and hung out on his way to a family reunion.   We'd been thinking about going to the Lifecycle thing that night but I just didn't feel up to going out so we didn't.

Thankfully, I got it together on Sunday so Mr. Poe could take me to Devil's Slide.  It's a nice park they made out of a former highway that was replaced by a tunnel.  Very nice:








We had a picnic on the beach and then headed home.  We put the dogs in the stroller and took them out for a couple of hours and then headed home for dinner.  I headed to bed after that--  it was a long day!  I didn't make it til 8:30.

Friday I came into work on Muni and then headed to the Asian Art Museum over lunch.  I didn't have  a whole lot of time but I go there so often that I can be in and out of there in a half an hour.  Some pics from the 'gorgeous' show that's going on now:




Me in some of the old Library spaces.  Love:




After work I went on a long walk.  I started off at Telegraph Hill:





Then I headed over to Nob Hill where I saw this AMAZING chandelier in a mod sixties ballroom in the Saint Francis:




I headed back to the office to pick up my stuff and then headed home via Union Square.  I hadn't been feeling well all afternoon and be evening had concluded I was sick.  I headed home to go lay down.

Thursday I came into work on my bike Market to Noe to Duboce to Scott to Post to Kearny to Clay to Sansome.  Sadly, the wheel I'd taken in to REI to get fixed on Wednesday wasn't fixed so that had to go back lunchtime.  After work I  made the happy discovery that the 12 bus picks me up in front of my building and then drops me off a half an hour later a block from REI.  So much faster than taking the subway and then walking.  I headed off Brannon to Potrero to Cesar Chavez to San Jose to Bosworth to Lyell to Alemeny to Sagamore to Brotherhood where I made the even happier discovery that the Benny Bufano sculpture is back where it used to be and has a new park to sit in.  Yay!:




I continued on Brotherhood to Lake Merced to John Muir where I stopped for more pics:



I continued on John Muir to Skyline to the Great Highway.  I stopped at the foot of Sloat for pics of the coast.  It wasn't cold but it looked a little grim:



I took the Great Highway to Vicente to 17th to Taravel to Merced to Hernandez to Laguna Honda to Portola to Corbett to Ord and home for dinner.After dinner I got cleaned up and we went to bed.
