Things Gone and Things Still Here

Because weekends were made for... cleaning house.

I had an uneventful yet productive weekend. Despite the weather being perfect for it, I only got to the beach for a little bit, but I did go. Mostly we cleaned house, but on my way to and from the gym, I managed to take some pictures so you can see the area where I live, and a bit of how. (Very well, very well.)

My neighbor's garden, from my back staircase.

A typical inner Richmond avenue, north of California Street in SF. They call this the "Lake" district, because Lake is the northernmost street in the Richmond. It's really nice.

A typical Clement street row of businesses: A sushi/bubble tea cafe next to a traditional herbalist, next to an emerging designer's shop, next to an old fashioned appliance repair shop, next to a homebrew supply store. I think that right there sums up why I love not just my town, but my part of town so much.

More Clement street: it's all about the noodles and the bubble tea.

Waiting for the bus.

I liked this skirt.

Punch Buggy light blue! *punches you* We play a lot of punch buggy in our family.

People often plant flowers in the little bits of earth that the sidewalk lining trees go into.

Here's some pictures from the little market across the street from me. They sell organic produce and dairy, nice breads, chocolates, wine, beer, soy chai, latte, and flowers. Needless to say I am there at least once if not twice a day.

I got home with my soy chai, and saw a couple of poor, forgotten lettuce leaves on the counter:

But mostly, this weekend I cleaned. See my clean dresser!

*I had gotten my going out/socializing for the weekend out of the way on Thursday night like a good girl. I had a fellow lj'er for dinner at the spur of the moment. That was really fun for me on two levels, one I really like meeting new people, and two, my house was actually clean enough to invite someone over at the spur of the moment. If you know me, really know me, this is quite an accomplishment, us keeping the house clean for days on end like that. I feel like we've really turned a corner. After that, Swaz and I went down to the Top and met up with Becca and some other folks for drinks, which was really nice. Note to self: do not try to keep up with Becca, for those "bitch drinks" she goes for sneak up on you. *ouch*
