I took this shot this Summer when Chance, Casey, Trin, Sarah, Mom, and I went to the Concert in Park in downtown Chico, CA. I was trying to catch that flare on the side of the building. This fountain goes all the time in the new City Plaza. The Plaza is a big Chico controversy, as it was built after the city removed a whole lot of diseased trees. Here in Chico, we love our trees. I mean, really, really love our trees. The Plaza appeared - the old one - in a movie made by Disney years ago. It was called Under Wraps and it shows the big trees and the diamond-patterned walkway. It was beautiful, as is the new Plaza, but in a very different way.
Here is Chance. I used a color version of this photo at Dating Dames a week or so ago. He looks deep in thought here.
Here is a view out my front door. I was sitting on the floor, back against the couch, looking at this view and I thought, hhmm, kind of pretty. I am lucky to live in a lovely little complex. We've been here for 10 years now - longer than I have ever lived in any place.
I got a new writing job. I'm going to be taking over the blog Veggie Chic.
I used to write for a vegetarian magazine a few years ago. It was Vegetarian Baby and Child and my editor lived in Mongolia. Seriously, in Mongolia, where there is not a huge selection of vegetables. Her husband was a doctor for the Peace Corps. I haven't spoken to her in years. She was such a nice lady. I ought to see if I can track her down. She was from California, too.
If you are interested, I wrote a quick tutorial for making your own Bath Salts here and I have the information about a Benefit cosmetic contest here . The prizes include a shopping spree at Bloomingdales.
