Another tattoo

The book store clerk helping me find something had a lot of tattoos but this one was the coolest. Remember the Ganesha tattoo and this one. I am now on the lookout for cool tattoos.

We went plum picking in our neighbor's yard (by invitation, of course). Nothing matches the taste of fruit picked fresh off the tree.

Cookbook collection

We had a busy day today, with yoga in the morning, playdate in the afternoon, pool in the evening, but there was no interesting photo opp. So, presenting my cookbook collection that found a new home in the refurbished hutch my garage sale crazy neighbor found for me a few weeks ago.

All the way from Egypt

Found it at the thrift store for $ 4.99. Hand woven, natural fibres and dyes. There were bigger pieces of baskets but very expensive. This is all I got.

Bikram Rocks! (The Ganesha Tattoo)

Al, a fellow yogi at Bikram, was gracious enough to pose for me. His wife was even more gracious by positioning him several times around the room so I could get the best image of the Ganesha. One of my proudest photos of the project.

Remember the standing train. This wild flower was growing next to it when we visited it for the umpteenth time.

Lunch date

Unlike other couples with kids, we have never felt the need for a date night. We do, however, miss eating in restaurants that don't offer a kid's menu. Classic Cafe is as classy as the name suggest and the food is classic without being pretentious or overpriced. It is our special haunt for the times when we are not in the mood for take out.

The missing E

Caught this on the side of a storage facility today. Only in the US will you find storage sheds for storing stuff (crap) you don't have space for in your oversized home.

For the first time in my life, I had lunch by myself at the Corner Bakery. The tomato soup was yummy, the chicken panini was good as usual and the chips oily.
