happy first day of fall my essness!
have you got on a fabulous cape and some great boots on as you walk through the changing leaves?
it was feeling like fall here all week which lead to some soup adventures but now it is back to blue skies + sunshine.
when i want a convenient and delicious soup hit, i head to a place near me in atwater village called viet. it's a fresher version of your traditional pho soup and hits the spot everytime.
the top bowl is a vegetarian pho with tofu and shitakes in a lemongrass broth.
the next is a ginger fish noodle soup finished with fried onion bits + bean sprouts.
both are so full of flavour you won't even miss the beef.
and then there is the pot of soup under construction on my stove top.
the chicken stock is made but not sure which direction to go with the soup.
any suggestions? feeling like something outside the chicken noodle box.

i hope you see this posting tonight while the moon is full...
this came to me today from my dear friend GM
"happy mid-autumn festival (aka moon fest).
eat a moon cake tonight while gazing a the full moon
hope your first day of fall is going swell (coincident that the chinese special day and the fall equinox landed on the same day this year)."
sending moon cakes your way

just coming out of my napa coma and thinking that a pair of those shoes you posted might make rehab much more glamourous + fun.
from the top -
our cottage at the carneros inn
pasta followed by shortribs at bottega ( so much more yumminess but only sharing these)
and a favourite wine of the weekend.
heading back to the drawing board now but with a copy of your man's book.

thank you so much for the lovely flowers.
the opening was such a good time and we all wished you were there.
here's one wall of drawings and my favourite photo of the night with the shrub and her friend NK who happens to own this lovely little vintage shop right down the street from me.
AV and i are having such a nice time and have added a delicious new pinot to our repetoire.
Feeling it's the prelude to our Napa trip.

figured if i put this on our 'vision blog', along with your donald judd posting,
our trip to marfa may come true.
we'll have to pop by the prada store there and do a little shoe shopping.
big skies, delicious mexican food and never ending margaritas...
oh and art. = heaven.
let's put this out to the universe + make it happen.
p.s. AV coming in tomorrow for opening... i am in shock and filled with joy
wish you were coming too.

went by the gallery yesterday and when i saw these immediately thought of the conversation with you and TR on meeting guys while you sit in the bar talking about craft projects.
smiled when i saw these by artist lisa borgnes and thought you would like.
they are quite large as well 54" x 44" and are embroidered cotton thread on burlap.
good double rainbow clip ... makes me yearn for you and the gals and our shenanigans in the woods.
