…Perhaps it’s eating ice-cream on the deck watching the fireworks…….. ….but secretly I suspect it’s the grilled cheese sandwiches I always make. Piled high with cheese, bacon and tomatoes and grilled with a ton of butter. Everyone throws artery caution to the wind!
It’s really all about the bacon!Mom loves them….
…and so does Charles!
Before the ice-cream a little watermelon to cleanse the palate….
We can see the fireworks at the Starlight Bowl….
…and Dodger Stadium not to mention all of the illegal fireworks going off all thru the valley!
Then it was time for some silly stuff!
Next year, if you don’t make plans please do come join the party!
I’m so grateful for Mr. Yoshida who came all the way from Santa Monica for me, his only customer on this side of town. He brought the exquisite Juniper back into it’s glorious condition as when Jeffrey tended to it. Mr. Yoshida also worked on the Black Pines and gave me some excellent advise on their care. He’ll be coming back twice a year to make sure everything stays tip top! Thank you Mr. Yoshida!!!
Kita could tell Mary Beth pulled up to take her to the park….oh joy!
Don’t you love this shirt!!!
I was delighted to have Precious Maggie come to the studio to work on a special project!
And super excited to get the new Wolf stovetop! Down with Viking!
I had a special invitation to see a technical/dress rehearsal of ‘Grey Gardens The Musical’ at the Ahmanson and Amy was able to join me.
Isn’t this fascinating? All the various directors have their islands of computers set up where the audience would sit for a performance.
When we saw a ballet dress rehearsal at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion it wasn’t nearly as complicated. That was great fun however because the director was speaking in Russian and Amy could interpret for me!
One of the many interruptions….
We had the best seats in the theatre. The first of the special boxes on the side. Lovely Natalie stopped by to say hi.
After that we were really famished so off to Din Tai Fung where we hit it just right and had no wait…..First…Must have Mango Boba!Then the usual suspects. Pork Dumplings, Garlic Green Beans and yummy Cucumbers!
Work started on the area around the elevator. What a horrible job cutting down and then digging out the roots of the old Bamboo.
And it was so very hot…..
The project is coming along beautifully and next blog I’ll have some wonderful photos to show you. In the meantime, beautiful custom hand made paper just arrived from China and I’m excited to work on it.
May your week be filled with productivity and excitement!
