Taken out of the window of the train home from work. If you look really closely, under the clouds you can see the ocean.

Last year these flowers were dead, so I pulled them out. Then this year they came back. I don't think these flowers are supposed to do that.

Quick Tuesday night dinner: two fried eggs; toast with olive oil, oregano, sea salt and pepper; greens and tomatoes drizzled with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sea salt and oregano; and Pinot Noir.

Water runoff from my flower barrel on the back patio. The barrel is completely decomposing, hence the piece of wood it shed next to it.

It is officially final paper writing time. Thus, I've been spending a lot of time at my desk looking out on the unusually wet April.

Finally, I got some bloomins of my own instead of having to rely on my Mom for flower pics. (To be fair, she gave me this plant, though.)

T kind of likes to buy box wine from time to time citing it's extreme value. In addition, he has a strange habit of pasting the stickers he peels from his daily apple onto the box.

This is where we spread William's ashes. It was a wonderful experience on one of the most beautiful (and hottest) days in the city. This beach meant a lot to William at a very pivotal point in his life. This end of the beach is the most stunning and also a nude beach. Quite a few family members of William's were there, and there were definitely some odd moments.

We wanted a secluded spot so we climbed over the rocks at the far end of the beach. Several people didn't think they were going to make it, but we all worked together and got over them. I think everyone felt really proud that we all worked together to get over the rocks and have our special private moment with just the family.

Then there was the huge wave that soaked everyone just as we were sprinkling the ashes. Thanks for that one William. I know that was you, and I know you are cracking up over it still.

When I was little, I thought these looked like grapes and I called them grape flowers. It turns out that I still think they look like grapes and I still call them grape flowers. I find them delightful-- especially in their effort not to be deterred by the pesky snow. I took this picture in the garden in which T and I will grow some vegetables this summer. I can't wait.

Today was the memorial. It was absolutely beautiful and definitely honored the man that William was. We are guessing that about 250 to 300 people came. He would have loved it.

I think this is such a strange building. I'm always trying to get a good image of it- this isn't it, but I'll post anyway.

I drove down a road near my house that I don't normally drive just to see what there was to see. These horses came running up to the side of the road, bucking and kicking up their back legs. Maybe they're wild? They reminded me of the unicorns on Legend, starring Tom Cruise. (That movie scared the crap out of me when I was little!)

This guy was on the other side of the road. I love how "it's always greener on the other side" - despite ALL of the grass around here being woefully brown.

I've been a bad poster, lately! Sorry!

I made Easter cookies today because T's mom got me cookie cutters last year and his dad loves them. I put some dinos in there for good measure. And T helped decorate-- thus, red eyed rabbits, etc.

I spotted a rainbow on my way to Easter dinner with some friends in Laramie. You can hardly see it here, but I swear it's there!

This is about one third of the cards my mom has spread around her dining room. They are all filled with messages of love and support. She likes to read through them often.

She also constantly has fresh flowers being brought over by friends and family. She loves tulips.

Oh spring and baseball season! How I missed you! We went to the day after the opening day for the Rockies... and they played the Phillies... and they lost. But, maybe they'll have a good season this year? Maybe?

A few times now I have been walking to or from work, and towering over the top of one of the piers I will see a HUGE ship. Once it was a cruise ship, but I was late to work and didn't have time to take a picture. But this gal was even bigger.

T and I were walking home, bellies full of noodles from Bones (short review: YUM!), and I liked this alley.

There are these plaques all down the Embarcadero at the Muni stops. This is one of the two at my stop near work. It was raining and I thought the poem fit the mood of San Francisco today.

This is Zippy, my professor's greyhound. I'll be taking him on lots of walk soon! It's terrible but when I look at greyhounds, all I can think of is The Simpsons featuring Mr. Burns and clothing made from dogs.
