Wednesday I came into work Market to Laguna.  I stopped for a pic of the new apartment building that is going up next door to the Gay and Lesbian Center.  I had high hoped for it, but it smacks of cheapness:

I took Laguna to Post to Kearny to Clay to Sansome and into work.  I headed home for lunch and got a pic of our freshly painted front deck minus the beautiful vines.  We added some lights so that it didn't look so grim:

 Ashley Jr. lounging in the sun:

Rufus looking extra happy:

After work I headed off 2nd to Howard to 11th to Harrison and stopped at 18th for a pic of the beautiful Carnival mural between 18th and 19th:

I continued on Harrison to 20th to Valencia to Tiffany to 29th to San Jose to Monterey to Ridgewood to Floor to Hazelwood to Greenwood to Plymouth to Wildwood to Faxon.  I stopped for a pic of a house in the best Halloween drag I've seen so far:

I continued on Faxon to De Montefort to Ashton to Head to Holloway.  I stopped for a pic of the Library at Holloway and Junipero Serra.  Midcenturylicious:

I took Junipera Serra to Winston to 20th to Eucalyptus to Clearfield into 34th to Wawona to 34th to Vicente to 20th to Taravel to Merced to Hernandez to Laguna Honda to Portola to Corbett to Ord and home for dinner.

I took JFK to Bernice Rodgers to MLK to the Great Highway to Taravel to Merced to Laguna Honda to Portola to Corberr to Ord and home for dinner and then bed.

Monday was walk2werk Monday and I had a fantastic walk into work that came in at about 7.2 miles.  I walked around but not through Buena Vista Park and then headed around Lone Mountain and over to Laurel Village.  Then I headed down to Japantown and took a few pics:


This is gorgeous St. Marks Lutheran.  I've never been in but it's on my list:

 This is the old Cadillac Dealership that's now a movie theater and some other stuff.  It isn't doing well--  there's a Halloween costume place in it and that can't be a good sign:

I love the entrance.  So pretty:

I took O'Farrell down to Union Square and then down to Whole Foods at 4th and Harrison for my donut and then I headed into work.  I headed home for lunch.  After work I tried to go to my spin class but it was cancelled because of the BART strike so I decided to walk home.  I headed down Geary which is surprisingly sketchy and then made my way to Alamo Square and then stopped in Duboce Park for a pic:

I continued up Market and noted this jaw dropping view of the fog rolling in over Twin Peaks:

I headed home for dinner and then we went to bed.

Friday I went into work on Muni and then went to my spin class over lunch.  After work I walked home via Nob Hill and then I gave Mission St another chance.  Then I headed home up Market for dinner.  It came in at 4.2 miles.

This is the 1958 Masonic Center which is sooooooo fabulous.  I love both it and its elaborate frieze:

This represents the four branches of the military:

This represents the tug of war between good and evil:

I headed down to the Mission where I saw this building with it's fantastic terra cotta facade:

You can see me taking the pic in the mirror:

I headed up Market where I saw that Whole Foods is about to open.  I love this building:

I headed home for dinner and then went to bed early.

I didn't do very much over the weekend.  I'd planned to ride but canceled at the last minute.  There's a lot going on right now and I'm definitely feeling overwhelmed.  But it's gonna be OK because I got a new pair of shoes on Saturday:

Aren't they super gay?  Mr. Poe cackled with delight when he saw them.  THESE are the shoes that are gonna make it all OK.

Wednesday I managed to get up and out of the house a little early.  I rode Corbett to Portola to Woodside to Laguna Honda into 7th to Judah to 9th and into Golden Gate Park.  I made my way to the Music Concourse and took a few pics:

I came out of the park at 8th to Lake to Washington to Lyon to Pacific.  I got a couple of pics of some of the amazing gold coast mansions on Pacific:

I continued on Pacific to Taylor to Clay to Sansome and into work.  I headed home for lunch and then I headed home up Market after work.  Mr. Poe had gotten home early and I wanted to see him.  We had dinner and then we went to bed early.

Tuesday I came into work Market to Laguna to McAllister to Polk to O'Farrell to Grant to Kearny to Clay to Sansome and into work.  I headed home for lunch and then I went and helped David move some furniture at their house.  He and Mr. Chris are getting new wood floors and it's a huge mess:

Here's David posing post-move with what was the hardest to move bit:

I headed home Howard to 11th to Folsom to 18th to Douglass to 17th to Ord.  I had dinner with Mr. Poe and then we went to bed.

Monday was walk2werq Monday and I walked Sanchez from 19th to where it ends in Glen Park and then headed over to Sunnyside Conservatory before getting my donut and then getting on BART at Balboa Park.  I almost didn't make it out of the house because adorable dogs were cuddlin':

 The sun started coming up when I was on Liberty Hill:

This is the sun rising behind Bernal Hill from Glen Park:

We used to go to Destinations Bakery all the time when I first moved here.  I don't think there's a thing there that I could eat but I remember it as being delicious:

I love this cottage in  Glen Park.  I don't think it's an old house because it's way too big for its style to be original:

The view of San Bruno Mountain from the Sunnyside District:

I headed into the Sunnyside Conservatory which is so pretty inside.  I love it:

So cute:

I got my donut and headed into work.  I headed home for lunch and then had my spinning class after work.  I always get on Muni at Powell so I can stretch my legs.  I took a few pics of Union Square.  I love it there:

 I headed home for dinner and then we hung out a little before going to bed.  I didn't even make 8:30.

Sunday I went hiking with Miss Smith and Daniel and Sutee.  We attempted the French Trail loop in Redwoods Regional Park between Oakland and Moraga.  We had a little trouble finding it so we didn't do the whole loop but  I think we're gonna revisit this route because it was fun hiking.  I'm not really sure how far we went but it was pretty moderate.  Here are the pics:

I got home pretty early so I got cleaned up and ready for dinner.  It was a great day for hikin'

Saturday I led the monthly Jersey ride out to Tiburon annd back.  It was very cold but we still had a reasonable turn out and it was lots of fun.  Here's the gang:



  Here's a one of me serving some glamma:

I headed home and we worked around the house for the rest of the day.  Well, at least Mr. Poe did.
