Some days I wake up just… hungry.

My husband and I are Airbnb’ing this weekend in a fabulous little apt., in a gem of a building. What a lucky find!
That gondola thing…
Hallway to our private oasis.
A cute little common area that doubles as a wash room. There’s great classical music playing in here most of the day. It’s a lovely space to be in. There are 2 small washers and dryers just to the right. We played a competitive though friendly 😉 game of checkers…

A touching sight indeed and a great example of the love and sweet care it must take to allow guests like us to enjoy every aspect of this wonderful building.
Those great from another era windows, reminds me of our stays in London and in France.
Cute little design touches everywhere you turn.
What a lovely place!

My mom was an excellent cook. Lately as we step into fall (or at least feel hints of it) here in So. Cal., I’ve been craving her chicken soup. She put so much love into her cooking I like to think I do the same. Last night I made my version of her original magic.… Continue reading Oma’s Chicken Soup
Macbeth, oh my Placido! The Arts Center in Los Angeles, it such a fab place to be. Pre-Opera lecture, I highly recommend attending these if you are able. You can gain so much more perspective on the said opera. The hubster and I. Vino in the courtyard is always a good idea. It’s so… Continue reading A Night At The Opera
I give you my Herb Crusted Baked Pork Chops. They make a great presentation, perhaps you’d like to entertain with these as the main dish. This dish is to easy to come together not to try. Rosemary grows wonderfully in my back yard, so rosemery it is… My parsley plant will provide the 2nd herb… Continue reading Herb Crusted Baked Pork Chops
