Little Blue Chicken!

I had a really weird 48 hour bug that included strep throat, a fever and a chill despite 100+ degree weather around here! After 48 hours the only thing that sounded good to eat aside from popsicles was mac and cheese from a box. Ha.

Pie necessity.

Since we got back from a whirlwind trip to the Bay Area, Blue Chicken has been acting somewhat skittish (although I’ve gotten him/her back to sitting on my hand for little amounts of time). The day before our trip, s/he was happy to perch like this.

Last Saturday we left Ashland around 12:30, booked it down to Santa Clara with the kids to get to the Grateful Dead show. We pulled up, found a free parking space immediately (saving us $70!), got 4 tickets together for half the face-value cost, and made it into the show with only one mishap: I had to throw away my damn purse after emptying the contents into a plastic bag! So I remained purse-less for the remainder of the weekend. Wah-wah.

And around 8:30pm this incredible rainbow showed up. With just the slightest drizzle of rain.

The next day we drove into San Francisco for the Giants’ game. Some sweet woman walked up and handed us 4 tickets for free!

Staying in SF meant eating at some of our favorite places… Golden Boy Pizza! A garlic-clam slice and a cheese slice!

One of my favorite music shops across the street from the pizza place…

Also a seized opportunity for cheesiness.

On the drive home. Silas calls these “the boob hills.”

We made it back to town just in time for Silas’s scrimmage game pre-All Stars tournament.

My brother posted this photo of my niece. I wish she really was coming to visit Aunty Julie! She’s getting so dang big (3 in August!).

Dinner for just my hubby and I one evening! Fresh halibut pan seared then topped with a beurre blanc sauce, homemade rice-a-roni and fresh local green beans with lemon zest and garlic. So dang good!
