Happy Fall 2012!

I had a bad week of allergies but no complaints because I have aspirin and allergy meds, it's better then getting for allergy shots weekly and monthly like I did for three years, basically that only helped a tiny bit. I am glad I stopped all that. I have and always have and still have bad earaches and feel very unsteady and sometimes dizzy but more than anything else I just feel like my Equilibrium is off. I have a appointment next Friday with the allergist and they may have to send me to an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist because they always say they cannot find the source of my inner ear pain. One Doctor did look into my eyes and said that he could tell I had Vertigo because of my pupils. He and a intern were disgussing this while looking into my pupils but I didn't understand what they meant. I was just listening as all these doctors were looking into my eyes. It was weird I have never heard of that before. 

I already had this Golden Fall Leaf Suncatcher for many years but I added the top one the crystal AB one this week to my website. I love them they are my fav's.

Who would like to name my necklace? I am terrible at that kind of thing but notice that everyone does it. I just cannot think of anything today I am tired I guess. 

Happy First Day of Fall!

Beautiful Wool Felt Flower Bouquets

This is for sale on Etsy Fall Flower Bouquet with Vase

For Sale on Etsy as well

September equinox is nine days away, and with it the end of summer equinox marks the start of fall (autumn). Also notable in September is the Jewish New Year, with Rosh Hashanah running from 16th to 18th September.

Since I love flowers so much I found some cute flower meanings I had posted them earlier this year but looked through my blog and found them and decided to post them again.

I found a list of meanings for some flowers, but daffodils were not included in the list so I did a research online for those. Daffodils are my favorite flower besides roses and Lilies. 
Narcissus - Daffodil - happiness new beginnings -Joy- 
But according to this link Daffodils meaning is chivalry
But yet again according to this page Daffodils meaning is Regard, Unrequited Love, You're the Only One. And yet more Daffodil Meanings - Eternal life. Associated with the tenth wedding anniversary. Also the birth flower for March and the national symbol of Wales.
Well my favorite flower has a lot of meanings.

 Cosmos - Harmony - Peace
Dogwood, Cornus - Durability 
Jasmine, Jasminum Grace - Elegance - Modesty
Lilac, Syringa, First Love
Lily, Lilium, birth - hope
Lily of the Valley, Convallaria, Return of Happiness - Humility

Poppy, papaveraceae, Pleasure
Rose, Rosa - Love - Simpliciy - Happiness

I should be getting in the mood to bake soon but it is hot by day and cool by night. Perhaps I should bake at night. Although lately I am trying to stay away from the sugary sweets. 
Awhile back I came across a great book called Eat Clean by Tuscan Reno I have adapted much of what I have read from her book into my diet. I have to admit that it is hard to eat clean all the time, but I am committed to trying.  
I hate having my photo taken anymore because I feel so fat and so old. I would really like to look like Tuscan Reno she is the same age as I. I guess I need to get my butt in gear and work out!
Until next time take care ~Kat

San Francisco Day Trip

I took a bit of time off from blogging, things got kind of crazy and I was into so many things.... work in the kitchen, trip to San Francisco and making jewelry as well as reading a lot.

I wanted to post the photos of our trip to San Francisco, Tiburon and Half Moon Bay. It turned out to be a really foggy day. Boo! in any event Steve and I had a nice day. 

 This is our first photo we took in Tiburon in the morning of August 25 and it was cold that day. We took a few photos and left and would return later in the day on our way home to try to get a better photo of the Golden Gate Bridge. This photo was taken about 9 am.
 Cute little quaint city in the bay area is the city of Tiburon it is close to one of our favorite cities Sausalito. 
 As we're driving over the Golden Gate Bridge heading north.  
 Near Half Moon Bay Point Montara Lighthouse.
 Taking a walk around the beach looking into caves and enjoying the scenery.
 In the city of San Francisco
 Famous Photos of the Painted Ladies Victorian Houses in San Francisco  
 Another view
 Heading home we stop to photograph a view of the Bay.
 A view of the Golden Gate as we just crossed it heading south, this is a north view though.
Back in Tiburon seeing if we can get a better view of the Golden Gate, nope and it is nearly 5 PM. As you can see from the 9 am photo to this one is barely a difference. Normally on a clear day you will get a fantastic photo and view of the bridge. Oh well there is another time to go take more photos for my albums especially since we live so close.
Have a wonderful September!
