Word for the Day: EXPERIENCE

I left work around 7PM. Normally walking out through the 2nd floor lobby, however, this night, I decided leave through the main. As I exited the building, it was dark outside. The signage on the topiary was lit up and caught my eye. EXPERIENCE. For Intel, EXPERIENCE relates to the products they build and all…

The Beginning and End: Vernal Falls

7.23 mi from the shuttle bus stop, to the top of Vernal Falls, and back to the shuttle bus stop. The last memories I have of Vernal Falls were steep steps, my dad, and the serene stillness of a quiet river before falling over the cliff. According to my dad, he remembers heading up to…

Resting Place of Hummingbirds

The meaning is from the Ohlone tribe word Umunhum. Although I did not see any humingbirds, it was amazing to finally have the chance to explore the radar tower I have seen from the valley floor. A few Sunday’s ago, I took an evening stroll up to the fourth highest peak in the Santa Cruz…

Easter Saturday

I received the invitation from my dad through my work email. I was delighted to see a message from my father first thing in the morning. Of course I skipped all priorities and opened his email; I was eager to read what he had to say. My parents were inviting me and Elderberry to their…

Visiting Sunol

I made a trip out to Sunol to attend a Sisterberry birthday celebration complete with family, food, discussions, and love. Sunol…I remember when my cousin first introduced me to the town. The introduction came shortly after she made a decision that she wanted to purchase a house in the area. From her place in Fremont,…

Week 11 ’18 EOC

I have decided that this post is the end of my clothing challenge. Goodbye morning stress! On a good note, I plan to go back to journaling; similar to my original blogspot posts. My outfit posts do not inspiring me or make me happy. I am really excited about this next step forward.  Keto On……

Week 10 ’18

Starting off the week (Sunday), Geoff and I were invited to an Italian dinner 75 birthday party in down town San Jose. Wine, pasta, and dessert (homemade cannoli’s) was worth the carb loading that evening. Let me also mention that after the meal, I fasted for 32hrs!! Accomplishing a 32hr fast was a first for…

Week 9 ’18

As I head into March; the month of birthday’s, wine tasting, get togethers, and dinners, the commitment I made (last week) to use Cladwell did not pan out. The tool always returns one or two things that I do not feel like wearing, so I scrap the daily ideas all together. A few things I…

Week 8 ’18

How is it that a person who loves clothes as much as I do cannot put an outfit together? Is it that I do not know how to dress my body type or do I just excel in What NOT to Wear? I find it interesting that things look fine when I put everything together….

Week 7 ’18

Week 7 lead into a three day weekend… thank you, Presidents! Having that extra day off from work is really nice and something I look forward too. Paid a visit to Sur La Tab and attended their cooking class; Dutch Oven. Loved the chef who taught the class, her personality was all Duarte and had…

Week 6 ’18

What an amazing week. I cannot believe it is already February. It has been nice getting out of the house. Last weekend was Super Bowl and this weekend was cards; so much fun. I had a great dinner at Pedro’s with good friends, and the office was so quiet… a lot of our team is…

Week 5 ’18

January is over and done. The Bay Are has started the month of February with amazingly warm weather, while inside the office the temperature is 30 below zero. Cladwell. I admit that refer to the app before I get ready for bed.  I use the look ahead one day option when the current options do not…
