sunday morning

January 16.  Breakfast adventures.

sunday morning

May 23.  10:26am.  Breakfast adventures.

Selling succulents in an Airstream bus. One of the most creative florist shops I've seen.

A tree made out of rusted metal with giant leaves made out of felt.

Waiting for a table at a breakfast favorite located in one of the most picturesque spots in town.

The wait is too long so we walk across the road to eat at another fave.

After breakfast, we re-cross the road with the fastest cross walk sign in the world. We literally step off and the red hand starts flashing.

Thankfully, we survive the crossing and stop in American Apparel (the ugly building above). Can't resist what we find hanging on the rack. Laughter quota for the day is fulfilled.

He doesn't think it's so funny though.



an hour

10:26am + jetlag. We begin the morning (a little late) at our usual breakfast joint and pass the hour with our usual activities.

Not sure why they're looking since we always get the same items: spinach and bacon soufflé, toasted cinnamon crunch bagel with plain cream cheese, orange cranberry muffin and coffee in a mug for Lao Lao.

After we order, find a table, fill the coffee mug and water cups, stock up on napkins, spread the bagel, cut the soufflé into triangles, unline the muffin and begin to eat, I go next door for my usual grande soy no water chai.

10:57am. We finish eating and ditch our table for some fresh air and exercise. So we head to the usual fountain.

And climb the usual steps.

A quick cuddle...

...and an impromptu smooch.

11:16am. An unusual break: I never thought anyone could outlast the big one but it looks like his little bro is giving him a run for his money.

11:23am. Next we walk to the supermarket on the other side of the parking lot. It seems we're always running out of something. So we grab our usual cart and they assume their usual positions.

Entering our favorite aisle:  the baking needs.

Today I stock up on butter and powdered sugar. I promised my friend for her son's birthday that I'd make cupcakes with buttercream frosting and pipe cookies with royal icing. Did I mention I've never done either? Wish me luck.

11:29am. Check out and head home.
