20140111-205612.jpgFirstly, I am deeply grateful to Tina Pumfrey for nominating me for the Liebster Award. I am very honored and very thankful for this award.  Wow!!  My “feel good” day yesterday became a “feel great” day!

I need some time to fully accept the award, so please bear with me. I hope to post the acceptance soon.

Tina is a singer, songwriter, musician, and teacher.  Musicians and Artists really have it hard, especially when they have full-time jobs.  They have to not only juggle their schedules, but also their finances just to do what they love.  I completely understand!  Please check out Tina Pumfrey’s Blog.

Today has been awesome thus far, even my drive up to San Francisco this morning to pick up my race packet with my good friend, Geri.  It’s been a long while since I’ve driven around San Francisco, but thankfully my friend knows the backstreets so I was able to navigate around crazy traffic, one way streets, and extremely steep hills (I have a manual transmission).

While waiting for her car to be fixed in another city and to pass time before heading to a party, we decided to go to Japan Town.  Japan Town in San Francisco is extremely fun to go to with all sorts of restaurants and stores.  Even at the $1.50 stores like Daiso and Ichiban Kan, you can find all sorts of life hack type products that will surprise you.  Let’s just say, we lost track of time!  HaHa!

We made it to the party after we picked up Geri‘s car.  I am lucky, through my friends, to meet people that are very interesting and kind, so my fish bowl is constantly growing. I met someone that may be able to help me with a product I am working on, and she has a nespresso machine that totally piqued my curiosity. I like cool gadgets and figuring out how they tick. She and her husband also had over a hundred different kinds of games (board games, card games, etc), and I learned how to play qwirkle. It’s a tile game that’s like an intuitive domino slash something else, I can’t describe.

I like playing new games, and learning new things, and I am grateful that I had an opportunity to play and learn a lot today.
