(5) Things we love…#143

Posted in Things We Love

I wake up to coyotes serenading my windows, cloaked in fog. They drive my dogs crazy, taunting them from the backyard, eating the dates fallen on the ground. Strange Summer – it hasn’t been hot in a long time and I have only gone to the beach once. Not that I am complaining: we get enough sun here in Southern California.

Four. Here is one way of beautifying a boring airport hallway. This is Sacramento airport and a map of the Sacramento river, otherwise called a flying carpet.

Five. If you have some time this weekend, and you want to know how focusing on fears rather than goals is important, this is a good video to watch (also via sofagirl).
