Our Japanese Maple, along with many of the trees around our neighborhood, have turned beautiful yellow/gold/red colors. I haven’t seen a fall like this for a long time (not quite the same in California).
Finally, I’m posting pictures from our last weeks in San Francisco, through our move up to Seattle. Here are the slideshows (slideshow links open in a new window):
8/20 – 9/12: Packing in SF, driving up, unpacking in Seattle
10/13: Visit to the pumpkin patch
Thanks to all who helped make our Halloween Housewarming a great success. The costumes were amazing.
In attendance were the following:
A little witch and a big witch, an undertaker, a burned out hippy or two, a burned out marti gra chic, a lazy housewife (not me, I promise!), Medusa, a “pooky” skeleton boy, and an even spookier skeleton man, and another warlock skeleton man, a beetle, Albert Einstein, a VW man, a little lion, a basketball player, a Vampireress, a knight, Lily Munster, and a gaggle of partiers!
Sorry for the absence from new posts and music, 'til now. This post introduces the Ear Reverends' latest Wrong Notes, called "The 33 1/3 Commandment (for Anastasia)".Continue reading Music again
Well, we just hung our art/photos in our new house. It’s starting to feel like home. One of our red walls in the downstairs office/studio is now home to six photos from my “Living Machines” series. They look great!
We’re starting to look forward and plan our Halloween Housewarming (coming up on Saturday the 30th)!
On Tuesday, Anastasia and I flew to Los Angeles to see my Grandma, Sylvia Golden, who was on her death-bed. We were able to see her, and be with her as she died. We just attended her funeral.
Grandma Sylvia was a great and wonderful person, and we are happy to have had her as a big part of our lives. It’s been very sad to say good-bye to her.
Anastasia and I (and Nikita) made it to Seattle OK, and have been camping out in our new place (waiting for the moving truck to arrive with our stuff).
We’ve been cleaning and painting, mostly, though we spent the day yesterday at Bumbershoot enjoying a day of music and nice weather.
We’ve taken a bunch of photos of our trip from SF to Seattle, and of our new place as we’ve been settling in. We’ll post photos and more details on our recent happenings soon.
While we were out for dinner tonight at one of our Noe Valley favorites, Joe’s 24th Street Cafe (sorry couldn’t find a website), Nikita decided to pour over our “to do to move” lists left on the couch. Thanks, Nikita. If only you could pack boxes…
Before we leave San Francisco, we really wanted to see our friends again – and since our house is in no shape to entertain, we decided to just hang out at a martini bar for a few hours, and invite everyone we know to stop by.
So we’ll be at LJ’s Martini Club and Grille at the Metreon on Friday night from 7:30 til about 10ish. Stop by if you know us (or want to meet us) and say hi/bye.
