The week was off to a perfect start with Lisa H. coming over…….She’s on to me……no fair taking a photo when I’m taking a photo!
O.K. then, I’ll take a photo of my Cappuccino!
…..and the machine. I love my Nespresso and the foamer is the best, best. I was surprised to see my hands reflected in the machine.
Everyone could benefit from this book. It’s about seeing ART in everything you do!
Thank you Lisa B…..I’m getting to this one as well.
Meanwhile, Kita stands guard waiting for the possum.
Alice and I met at Bloomie’s and had a delightful time catching up……..Thank you dear Alice for the treat!
My must have….a Strawberry Smoothie! Sooooo good!
Gotta love this!
Bloomie’s had been advertising a huge sale on Kluft mattresses and I was sooooo tempted even though the last one I got there is only four years old. All I can say is they made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.
That night I met Laurie Pie at Gelson’s on Laurel Canyon to be taken to a surprise destination for my birthday. Yes, birthday…..I think there’s one more celebration coming up in two weeks. Funny! Anyway Miss Pie took me to Vibrato Grill/Jazz, Herb Alperts premiere jazz restaurant up on Beverly Glen Circle.
These four fellows are ‘The Tramps’ and were a throwback to Sinatra and the Rat Pack! Great fun!
Laurie and I decided that this cute gal on the saxophone was absolutely amazing and great fun to listen to & watch!
Even the bread basket at Vibrato is cool!
We each had a roasted peach salad with burrata cheese. Soooooo good!
Laurie opted for a dozen oysters…...
….and I had scallops…..
Now that I’m a wine expert, after much contemplation, I ordered a Pinot Grigio. The orchids are a gift from Vibrato to birthday celebrants.Happy Birthday to me!
Thank you Laurie Pie for an extraordinary evening I will not soon forget!
What day is it? It’s grilled cheese with bacon day that’s what! I used pesto for one of the inner bread slices and the other was coated with Maille’s Old Style Whole Grain Dijon Mustard. Do I need to mention the ton of butter?
These beautiful heirloom tomatoes were a must for inclusion.
Besides being Grilled Cheese Day it’s also the 4th of July!
Mom and Vicki take a selfie…..
But I decided to take my own photo….Gotta love mom’s ‘flag’ pin!
We watched ‘The Music Man’ while waiting for the fireworks at 9:00. That’s about the best 4th of July movie ever!
My phone just does not co-operate when taking photo’s of the fireworks. Too bad as this year they were the best and we have a great view from the deck for Dodger Stadium, Universal Studio and the Starlight Bowl. In addition, there was a lot of free wheeling fireworks all throughout the valley.
I used to have to give Yuki valium but Kita is totally unperturbed by the noise and more interested in catching that possum!
Wishing you a week of fun and frivolity!
