Eight weeks 11/10/21


I enjoy getting together with my friend Naomi. On November 3, we went to  Venice Canals.

This was my favorite house

I also like this one because of the colors.

Off to lunch. I chose lentils because I am trying to make more healthy choices. This is a French eatery, so there are lots of yummy choices.

We went to Lundeen Gifts. I met Maggie, at a get together, who is the owner of this store. Thank you Naomi for these gifts for my grandson. I was happy to find the perfect wallet at her store.

This past Wednesday, November 10, Naomi and I went to Kenneth Hahn Recreation Park.
This 401 acre park is huge. I did not take many photos, I just enjoyed the outdoors - we just took a casual walk, as you can see, we barely covered this park.

Now it was my turn to let Naomi know about an eating place. We enjoyed lunch at Mizlala.

Speaking of food, here are more home cooked dinners... Mostly Jon's cooking - onolicious

Casey made this amazing dinner. Put together yourself. At the bottom is Farro and Roasted Cauliflower and Roasted Chickpeas. Topped with Pomegranate seeds, Hazelnuts, Dressing, Mint and Lemon juice.

My dish, Lentil Curry

Casey's Pie Pumpkin bread. Delish. 
Make sure to find "Pie Pumpkin" and not the pumpkins used for carving Jack o Lanterns.

This huge ginger cookie was yummy. Too bad you can't smell its fragrance; it was awesome!

Adventures and home cooked dinners, 11/1/21


I enjoyed seeing my friends Ruth and Dennis from Hawaii along with her sister Rae, who lives in LA.  They gave Ole this adorable Halloween beanie. Jon suggested going to MIZLALA which was in the neighborhood. Good advice, the Mediterranean food was delish.

I really enjoy walking buddies. Naomi on the left, is my high school friend.

I am so happy to have my things again. I am also enjoying frothing half and half.

I have learned not to be afraid to drive in LA. I went to the Burbank IKEA which I found was more adventurous than going to the Carson IKEA.

Jon and Casey have making dinner. Dinner is special for them and they have making these marvelous dinners for each other forever. I now get to enjoy them. As a single person since my mom passed away in 2008, I have been lazy and not cooking. I now have to change my ways and get cooking.

This neighborhood is so adorable.

There are more photos of Ole at the end.

LA certainly is a fun place.

Ole is now interacting more with us. I loved how he looked at me the entire time I fed him his bottle.
