Sunday Smorgasbord


I'm excited to join the

I'm grabbing a few minute before I head to bed to throw out a bit of recent random stuff.

I was home for a few days this week so I actually got a couple things done for school and ran a bunch of errands. I tried to drop some stuff off at school but they are still working on the floors. I did get a bit of time  with my principal so we could get a few purchases done for fourth grade. I'm excited that we will have Wixie again and that we got the school subscription to The Answer Pad.


     

I am thrilled that I am finally going to be able to attend a blogger meet up. Woohoo! I think Amanda Madden is fantastic for pulling this all together. We are going to do a sleep over and everything. Click the button and fill out the form if you think you might be able to come along.

I stayed on our boat for the last Wednesday this summer. It is so nice to stay up there after racing but when I get back I have a workshop downtown on Thursday and then it's back to school.




I traded in my car of 9 years for a new toy. I love having a convertible in Georgia because you can actually put the top down for so much of the year. Since I grew up in Connecticut we really didn't have that luxury.

 


I'm on vacation in San Francisco right now and I went out to Alcatraz Island today. There was a great introduction video done by Discovery that shared all kinds of history that I didn't know. I thought the audio tour really added to the experience up in the cell block. There were also a bunch of baby seagulls around and I saw a mom (or dad)  come back from the water and feed them (gross but cool). I didn't know the island is nesting ground for a bunch of sea birds. They also have some neat gardens.



We also went to the show Beach Blanket Babylon. It has been playing in San Francisco since 1974! It was an absolute blast and I would definitely recommend it. We were sitting in the center of the first row and duriñg a couple of the scenes the ladies on stage were winking and blowing kisses to my hubby - cracked me up.


Tomorrow we booked a tour to visit Muir Woods and Sausalito. That should be fun but I'm really excited for Tuesday. We booked a ride on a sailboat out to see one of the Louis Vitton Cup races (which is part of the America's Cup). There was a race today and I saw one of the race boats and a bunch of spectators while I was on on the ferry from Alcatraz and while we were on the island.



Probably enough random stuff for one day. Be sure to click the button above to check out what other people have been sharing.

  1. Heather,
    I'm coming to the realization the SF is some place I need to go on a vacation. I'm really interested in the America's Cup because of the new boats and the safety concerns with them.

    Also, I nominated you for a Liebster Award. I've enjoyed reading all your tech posts. You know you stuff and do a great job sharing them (which I appreciate). Thanks for all your great work!

    Have a great vacation

  2. How fun! I love your new toy!!! I wish we could enjoy those type of cars up here in Canada but it's too cold :( I miss my Mississippi weather. Looks like you are having lots of fun and seeing some neat things. Hope you enjoy the rest of your time there!
