I left Chicago on Monday morning and had a few glitches with catching my flight to San Francisco. But we arrived and walked all over the city including Lombard Street, which is the most crooked street in the world. And I walked up that big hill. What a difference a year makes. Last year I was huffing and puffing and my feet hurt so much on a trip to London, England. I was so unhappy that I was so unfit that I couldn't climb the stairs up to the top of St. Paul Cathedral. Well this was more strenuous and I did it. With just a few stops and no heart attack. We also rode the double decker bus (something we didn't do in London last year) and also took the cruise around the bay. Then we drove north into Muir woods and the coast. Strange how dry everything is out here. My hair felt like straw and matched the hillsides which are all yellow straw and look like a desert. And I can eat. Slow but food is going down. DH is stuffed since I have to have him finish most of my food.
I GOT PEARLs. Yes, we walked into the Pearl Store and ended up with a lovely strand of salt water pearls and matching earrings from Hawaii. I have been hinting to my DH for a couple of years but he doesn't really hear that well unless standing in front of a display case of jewellery. So I have my 29th anniversary present just a bit early. This year it falls on 10-10-10. Coolest date ever. Here we are celebrating with an amazing lunch in Sonoma today.
Just wanted to keep in touch.
