Weekend in Pictures

Monday the 10th at 1:29am is when my father died six years ago. This weekend was quiet, sun-filled, and where I took time to go visit him up on the hill and do a few things that reminded me of those quiet years, before the other family came in, when it was just me and him. That's the love I remember the most, that I cherish the most, from him. Before everything else happened, there was he and I and the ocean. That's what I'll tell our kid about when they ask about their Grandpa Pick.

As we are kicking off an awesome garden expansion project next weekend, I got online and reserved two pear trees from Friends of Trees, whose volunteers will come out and not only deliver but plant the trees. Pretty rad.

Working with coaching clients who are in a variety of roles, from an instructional designer with an awesome background in gaming to a vice president of engineering to a writer/editor. I love this job! (image credit)

Our girl Ruby is loving the autumn weather. Our vet recommended Boswelia and it has made a huge difference in not just her energy level, but her ability to recuperate after walks. Where she was sleeping half the day after a walk in the first few weeks, she's now ready to take 8 walks a day if allowed. :)

Our girl Ruby is loving the autumn weather. Our vet recommended Boswellia and it has made a huge difference in not just her energy level, but her ability to recuperate after exercise. Where she was sleeping half the day after a walk in the first few weeks, she’s now ready to take 8 (short) walks a day if allowed. 🙂

The hubby and I cozied up on the sofa Saturday night with bowls of fettucine and homemade pesto, red wine, and watching A Most Wanted Man, Philiop Seymour Hoffman's final movie before his death this year. Great, great film. (image credit)

A mild weekend meant lots of morning walks in the park near our house with my two favorite individuals!!

A mild weekend meant lots of morning walks in the park near our house with my two favorite individuals!!  Ruby is getting very good at listening to us offleash and hilariously, most of the time doesn’t spot the squirrels. Throw a ball and she looks to another dog to get it for her. As for my hubby? He just keeps getting cuter! 🙂
