One of those days

Today was one of those days that are overcast with a slight chill in the air. So after dutifully walking with Sadie this morning, and doing a little grocery shopping to stock the cupboards, I decided today would most definitely be a day of goofing off and TV watching. This photo of Sadie should give you some idea of how we feel today...

So after feeding Sadie her breakfast which turned out to be more like brunch, I made myself a little something, something, got a pot of coffee going and then loaded up a little tray and went into the bedroom to watch TV in bed and have breakfast in bed.

This morning's TV fest started out with repeats of Monk and Psych. I love both shows and am sad that this is Monk's last season. I could have gone for at least one more. You know Psych takes place in Santa Barbara a city I think I would be totally happy living in. I was there for my niece's wedding where I unfortunately received a parking ticket. However, I happily paid the ticket once I got home and attached a little yellow sticky note that told them how much I enjoyed their fair city!

Then Sadie and I caught a mini marathon of the Rachel Zoe Project - oh boy! I find her fascinating and am learning through her as she grows her business. Sometimes, though, the drama gets in the way and it gets a little ridiculous. BUT I enjoyed the episode where Rachel goes to Paris for Fashion Week. While in Paris, Rachel was ensconced at the Four Seasons George V Paris. The hotel's website describes itself this way... Welcome to Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris. Steps from the Champs-Elysées, with private terraces that command all Paris; 17th-century tapestries, lovingly restored; and a spirit that lives on in thoroughly reborn, highly advanced spaces, Four Seasons George V Paris redefines luxury service in the City of Light.

At fashion week, we caught glimpses of Christian La Croix, Stella McCartney, John Galliano, Ungaro, Louis Vuitton and Rachel's all time favorite, Chanel. She was so excited to see Karl Lagerfeld she nearly hurled (no exaggeration). Rachel was invited to view Coco Chanel's Paris apartment which is exactly as it was when the great Coco passed away in 1971. She sat on Coco's suede couch (unusual for its time) and saw the beautiful chandelier with the interlocking C's and the number 5. Interspersed between all is this fashion was life on the streets of Paris.

As for the rest of the day, it is shaping up to be a beautiful SoCal kind of day. I think Sadie and I will sit outside and get a little sun and maybe read a little. I love these kinds of days!


  1. THAT SOUNDS LIKE A GREAT DAY! Do you know that we got snow yesterday? YES! But, it was gone by this morning. We snuggled up read, I did some drawing, blogged and then just had a lazy day. Now it is tea time!! Have a great week my friend! Anita
