One holiday down and another one to go. December has always been an interesting month to me. It's about the time when things wind down, we tie loose ends before the year concludes and oh yes, that big magical holiday that every child (and adult) waits so anxiously to arrive. But it's also a manic month for me. Even as more time comes on line as work winds down, our newly freed-up schedules get re-compressed with holiday projects, shopping, eating, drinking, decorating, cooking, Christmas cards and being merry with much loved friends and family. Oh what fun and somewhat stressful, but then again, I wouldn't have it any other way. After all, the frenzy adds to the excitement. So to tie at least one loose end, I present a post that never made it earlier in the year as time got eaten up by my cute little gremlin. Here are some pictures from yet another one of our some-day-legendary-mother-son trips.
If there is ever a one week to visit San Francisco, Columbus Day week is it. It is when the Blue Angels visit town, and this year, it was when the America's Cup yacht race, Hardly Strictly Blue Grass concert and a critical Giant's baseball game took place (that eventually led the team to the World Series Championship!) This is also the one week in San Francisco when its sky miraculously gets cured of its chronic fog.
