just arting around
it's been a gorgeous week so i've taken some outdoor adventures in between lots of doodles and chasing squirrels off my front porch. finally it's time to break out the summery dresses, gaze at the neighbors' flowers that i couldn't grow if i tried, and bring back the white wine - i had coffee with the fabulous pam taylor from present magazine a few weeks ago and she recommended this delish argentine crios torrontes by susana balbo. the stencil of evolution was an interesting find - someone painted it on the doorstep of a religious bookstore. i like that about this city - different beliefs and lifestyles coexist here without much of a ruckus. you can even wake up with a little hangover and people will still give you the benefit of the doubt. and i was delighted to find this flying moo cow, which was part of a tornado scene painted on the coffee drive-thru window. i was on the way to kansas city and needed a cuppa for the road.
a little weekword update: alexandra was the wordfinder this week and it is HOME. if you'd like to join us, swing by her world, let her know, and post your interpretation on friday. now, i'm just polishing off two ice cream sandwiches and i think that is a fine way to end the day.
