Yep, I did a little ghosting over the last few weeks. I would have the intention to sit down on Sunday nights and write but something would come up. I have a handful of drafts started and a list of ideas that are in process but I decided to focus the last weeks of living up the last of summer. Our weekends have been pretty busy with birthday celebrations, a USC Game, tons of teaching, house stuff and spending time with family. Even though we have a few weeks left of summer, I would be completely content with my summer if it ended today. Luckily, it is not over just yet because we have a beach day this weekend for the hubby’s birthday, wine tasting in Temecula the following and a 5K to wrap up the month. I plan to be back for Travel Thursday tomorrow to finally share the wineries we visited in Napa. First, just a little catch up over the last few weeks in mostly pictures.
I have been teaching every Sunday and going to classes throughout the week. The husband got a membership so now we get to go together which I have been loving. When I taught at LA Fitness, we both had a membership so our nights would be in class or working out together so I love getting back to how our nights used to be.
Last weekend, my sister and her family came down for our yearly tradition of a USC Game. Although it was blazing hot, the game was a lot of fun. The Trojans killed Utah State! It was a blast to have the whole family together.
On Labor Day, we decided to hike in the morning since it has been overcast before noon the last few weeks. There is a local trail that neither of us had been on so it was the perfect day to try it out. The trail was fairly steep but the best part was the waterfall at the end. Despite the drought there was a nice small brook that was a perfect reward at the finish.
For my Southern California readers, this is one you want to make note of for next year. After years of hearing about it, I finally made it to the Orange International Street Fair. Lined with countries from around the world, you can walk around booths that have food and items specific to countries. We got so excited to eat food from Greece that reminded us of our honeymoon. Although there were a lot of countries to choose from, I could eat hummus by the buckets so Greece was an obvious choice. Unfortunately, we learned the husband is allergic to sesame oil so our night was cut short. Even more reason to go back next year!
Tell me: What country has your favorite food? Mine is either Italy or Greece with France as a runner up.
