Thanksgiving Weekend

This Thanksgiving weekend was a very pleasant one... the weather was beautiful, we enjoyed making memories with friends and family and we rested from the normal everyday routines.
On Thursday we had a traditional Thanksgiving meal with Ang's Mum, Dad and brother, friends Bonnie and Bruce from South Africa, and friends Julian, Diana and Vivian from Colombia. In the afternoon we worked off the extra calories with a stroll along the Long Beach Shoreline.
On Friday we went to the San Diego Zoo with Julian, Diana and Vivian. It was fun to hang out there and marvel at all the different exotic animals on display! I made a little photo collage of our day there:

Green Pepper

Nothing very eventful has happened today, so I thought I would show you one of my small accomplishments for this semester.
All my recent ancestors had (or have) major green thumbs and amazing gardens of both beautiful flowers and productive plants... but somehow the green genes missed me! Where we are now living is my first home with a back door and the option to have a small herb garden, so you can imagine the pleasure I felt when my wee plant produced a very edible green pepper!

Beginning...


I've been thinking about starting one of these spots for a few months... so here it is. Please come back and visit when you want to see what we've been up to! Hopefully I'll update this blog on a weekly basis!

This is our most recent photo together... it reminds us of a special weekend (Oct 1, 2005) in Prescott, AZ - we went to Karen Oliver's wedding and at the same time celebrated our 7th anniversary! It was so beautiful and was a wonderful, peaceful escape from the craziness of everyday life of grad. school in L.A.
