Healthy living and feeling stronger.
I used a 12-pound medicine ball for sit-ups and Russian twists during today’s O2 Bodyfit class. It was a tough circuit. However, I could handle the weight.
Last year, I used a 6-pound ball.
After class, I made vegetable quiche cups with green bell peppers, mushrooms, zucchini and red onions. I added Pepper Plant hot sauce.
I used a recipe from “The Kitchen is My Playground.”
Also – I love having leftover quiche cups!

Day 80 of 100 Happy Days.
Hello Drakes Bay.
Introducing friends to this amazing oyster farm. Also, saying good-bye. I am quite sad that Drakes Bay Oyster Company will close at the end of this month.
We enjoyed showing Suzanne and Ryan all we knew about shucking oysters. It’s not much. I hope it helped.
On the Wall at Smugglers Cove:
It’s thrilling to see our names up there! We worked hard on those rum tastings. Fine. “Work” may not be the right word for it.
We certainly enjoyed all the rum. I also couldn’t stop laughing at that silly hazing ceremony.
We celebrated with one of the bar’s master rums: Myers’s Planter Punch Brand 1938 Rum. It’s a funky Jamaican rum. It’s also quite complex and smooth. I liked it.
Finally, a San Francisco bar that knows both of our names. Well, they certainly can’t forget us!

Piano music makes me feel nostalgic.
After work, I listened to a lovely NPR interview with classical pianist Tara Kamangar. Her new album covers music from Russia And Iran.
I adored listening to her play the love theme from Spartacus.
I loved catching up on food shows with my couch buddy.
Daisy likes to find a little nook between my body and the couch. Then she squeezes herself into the nook.
She also snores. She snores loudly.
Day 73 of 100 Happy Days.
Hungry paws left prints behind at our campsite. Suzanne and I thought our food would be safe on the picnic table.
We were wrong.
But first, I loved waking up under the tent’s “skylight.”
A 9-year-old sleeping bag kept us warm overnight.
It looks like raccoons visited us overnight.
I missed camping. I was so happy that Suzanne invited me to tag along on her camping adventure in Half Moon Bay.
It was lovely to find a campground that’s only 30 minutes away from my house.
I also loved pitching our tent next to the beach.
My co-worker was surprised that I haven’t seen “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.” She said Wes Anderson fans love this movie.
She said I had to see it.
It was the perfect film for our “dinner and movie” night at home.
After work, I came home to a steamy kitchen. It smelled so good!
Mark made Spinach Pesto Chicken.
My mornings start with this cutie. Daisy likes to sleep in.
She tries to get me to spend more time in bed.
Puppy cuddles are a great way to start my day.
After my workout, I had leftover ramen for lunch.
I added shiitake and pink oyster mushrooms to this roasted pork ramen from the Chubby Noodle pop-up inside Amante.
I also added Sriracha.
I garnished the broth and noodles with chopped green onions.
