I started out the day on my freshly painted front deck in the early morning sun.
I love the color, it used to be white so this is quite a change, my signature red, bright, cheerful and a color compliment to all of the greens in the garden.
A new dress, I just finished last night, a bit bold but fun to wear and so easy-breezy in the waning days of summer. This pattern McCall's 6559 is super easy, made out of knit fabric it clings in all the right place and is very flattering.
Where to wear my new dress...why out to lunch at Julienne, a charming restaurant in San Marino, California. Delicious alfresco dining made even better in the company of two delightful friends.
I had a roast beef sandwich, with arugula, blue cheese, and caramelized onions on toasted sour dough bread. YUM!
A nice surprise the two books I ordered arrived. I checked these out from the library and they were so good that I decided to buy them. What Are You Looking At? is a guide through the world of modern art. In The Last best Cure the author chronicles her year long search for a healthier, better, life using a variety of natural techniques including yoga, meditation and exercise.
And also when I came home...
look who I found on my bed waiting for me, almost indistinguishable, looking more like a furry dust mop ~ Miss Twiggley of course. I don't even think she missed me!
All in all a splendid day...I hope yours was a good one too!
