SquareOdds 2.12.11

Six Word Saturday 2.12.22

While in Redondo Beach, I enjoyed several short morning walks to Sweet Wheat a boulangerie, pâtisserie, bistro, and café not far away. Unfortunately (and also fortunately) their selection is quite large, making it difficult to choose what to enjoy next. On this morning I chose a raspberry panna cotta. The panna cotta was creamy, the raspberry added just that bit of tart, and it wasn’t more than just sweet enough.

Square Odds 2.11.22

I’m off today to California to take part in the baby shower for our older daughter. This will be our first grandchild. 🙂 I’ve been taking care of my mom and dad, with much appreciated help from my wonderful husband, and it’s been tough. My mom moved into a care home, less than two days later was in the hospital with an infection, and is now back in the care home in hospice care. I’m definitely ready for a break!! I can’t wait to get into the van and get on the road. You can be sure I’ll enjoy my six days, even if two are mostly on the road.

The good news is that Becky’s back with her Squares challenge for 2022, the subject being “odd”, and although I won’t be blogging while I’m gone (at least I don’t plan to), I’ll start you off with an odd entry from the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix where I’ve been sharing the Chihuly installation over the last weeks. These give me that Dr. Seuss vibe that I so enjoy or maybe something from the Muppets.

See you next week.

The Square Odds

I’ll be on the road again today, covering the miles between Phoenix and southern California, although with gas prices the way they are, it will be a much more expensive trip than the last one! I have to steel myself for the cost of that one tank of gas necessary to get before coming back home next Monday. Sigh.

At any rate, I have some unused orange squares so I thought I’d squander them today to get you through the week without me, even though yesterday ended the square challenge. 🙂 Wasn’t that thoughtful? Becky, I did sneak in one non-square, so just ignore that one and go with the rest.

Keep well, all of you, while I’m gone.
