Home and Descanso Gardens, 3/27/22


Mitsuwa is a Japanese market which has a mini food court and some small stores. My friend Heather has one and suggested I get this earthen pot. You really have to follow the instructions to have your rice come out well. I am not sure which rice to use. I use the one in this blog.

Every Wednesday, I walk with my friends at Palisades Park which is actually a long path about 2 miles which ends with the Santa Monica Pier. This is so Los Angeles with these Palm trees.

This past Sunday, March 27, I had a lovely day. Look at the street name, it is Honolulu. Casa Cordoba is at 2331 Honolulu Ave. Montrose, California. Vicki and I were college roommates. I enjoyed meeting her friend Tommy. You know me, ice cream is a must.

We later enjoyed Descanso Gardens, 1418 Descanso Drive  La Canãda Flintridge.

Jon made this Korean dinner. The kalbi was delicious. He cooked it on the barbecue in my little porch.

Food and the fam, 3/11/22


I have been enjoying Japanese food. There is a Santouka outside of Don Quijote in Honolulu - the town one. The one here is at Mitsuwa, they have a mini food court.

I drove to Irvine to meet a friend and she suggested this place. This Tonkatsu was delicious "oishii"!!!

Wandering around Sawtelle Blvd.; I was excited to see this place on Mississippi Ave. I certainly got my sweet tooth fix.

Most days, I stroll my grandson around the neighborhood for his nap, only stopping if I see something I like.

I like this photo as well as like his baby flawless skin. Mom and Ole Face Timing, This was the first time mom was away.

March 5, Jon said he was copying Ole.

March 10. I wanted to take a photo of them going upstairs. I am so very fortunate to be living in this 4 unit building and I am downstairs from them.

February 19. Ole not exactly happy. 

February 21. Ole learning to open his hand to pet their cat.

March 3. I love hearing his voice and seeing his smiles. 

March 6. He has so much energy. I am bracing myself - when he crawls and walks.

Just thought, I share this. In Los Angeles, you never know what you will see.

I hope all is well. This has been a rough two years, for everyone.
