wet weekend wanderings

i did very little wandering 
but
 its alliterative 

lets see

 on the way home 
thursday 
i stopped to 
shoot this shot 
of 
santiago calatrava's transportation hub 
aka 
oculus




friday 
was a nice day 
good for erranding

 for reading
i finished stephen king's mr mercedes 
it was so good
 i immediately read finders keepers
second
of
 a planned 3 book series

now
 of course 
i have to wait
 for the next book 
thats the part 
i dont like 
about 
series 
serials 
continuing characters 

especially
 since i suspect 
i have a feeling
 the next book 
will take the characters full circle 

meanwhile 
reality
saturday 
rain was predicted
 only
 for the evening
predicted 
incorrectly

on the way to
the spa
on the way from
the spa
to hair appt
it spritzed

spritizing is a very light bursts not quite a drizzle 
definitely rain hat/hood needed

later it poured




sunday 
another overcast day
rain predicted 
only
in the morning
the early morning
right
it spritzed 
well past early
some times
hard

donning
 my handy yellow hooded slicker
 brunched it 

afterward
my friend cheryl & i
did a little sale perusing
nothing caught my eye
amazing



french bulldogs

meet 
rufus and luca


 i met them last fridaycation



rufus (above)
is a year old 
luca 
a bit older
is
clearly tolerant 
of 
pal




fridaycation


no
i am not doing this today 

today its raining

 this was 2 or 3 fridaycations ago 
when it was not yet summer 
but
 felt like it 

unlike today

that glass structure is the 
winter garden

surrounding it is the new 
brookfield place
a very high end mall with an amazing food court

those sailboats are moored
in the
north cove yacht harbor

this and that

if you follow me on instagram or Facebook these photos maybe familiar i got this wonderful 8 inch replica of a nyc water tower from to+wn designs click here for a link to their etsy store in addition to water tower replicas they have designed some very clever jewelry


i took this up on our roof



the wheatgrass that comes with it
has started to sprout
you soak the seeds overnight
plop them on top of the soil
keep it in a dark place for 1-2 days
when it begins to sprout
move into the sun so the grass gets green


here it is on my window shelf
i am hoping there's enough sun


i also found some very funky cool jewelry
artisan community
available 
through
storenvy
click here

i am in love with these



i'd regale you with more photos 
but
 still waiting
 for the cloud techs to finish up

the dynamic duo
 jack on jumps 
harry on vocals 

my iphoto/cloud issue
 is 
nearly 
again
 nearly
 over 

the flood gates aka iCloud photo access
 has been opened
 after 
duplication of all photos was made
 once
 they
  the photos
 make the journey
 up/down
 to/from
 the mac and the cloud

 the techs
 will 
zap the cloud
 shake it out
 begone evil juju
 and 
all the photos
 everywhere
will be gone 
erased
zapped
depixeled

which
 is
 why 
complete thorough backup 
was a prerequisite

thats the long of it
 the short is
 i have no photos to share 
except 


taken on
 saturday
when i was on my way to the spa
 for the much needed 
monthly massage 
ahhhh
 exhale spa is well named 

 friday
 i did nothing
 really
nothing

sunday
toonman 
helped me 
schlep
 a ton
 of
 never use them
 i could use that space
 stuff 
to
 housing works 
a more upscale 
good will 

another trip 
next week 
with
shoes from the late 60s 
boots i dont wear for whatever reason
 anyway 
compared
 to
 last weekend 
this  one
was a washout 
in more ways then the weather
mostly it rained or threatened rain 
the sun came out after lunch

we rewarded ourselves 
after
we schlepped 
the stuff across to columbus/75th
with ice cream

 of course 
it was father's day
 toonman's two daughters and our 'adopted' son
 called to chat
 individually 
not all together 

the cats did nothing
 isn't that just like cats
