Eye to Eye

this is how a Note To Self looks in my world:

Designing stringer risers based on what tools are avail to install. The drill head is the pivot point

um what?

i know exactly whats going on here. and i find it kinda amazing that in this day and age of cutting edge space travel, medicine, and electronics, building things still is kinda old school. our ideas for these stairs are AWESOME. no really. but we keep coming up against a lack of tools able to be used to install the risers as we see them.
AND i’m really enjoying the thought process that happens when we talk about ‘this is the tool we have’ Vs ‘this is the design’ and without giving up an idea we GET CREATIVE and push ourselves to still have the design using the limited tools.

and guess what? WE WORKED IT OUT. the risers might even be more beautiful then *I* had designed. my metal guy and Mr CM have taken my design and (in my eyes) made it even better!

one day i’ll show you pictures. the steel has been ordered today and if all goes well i’ll have stringers in 2 weeks. temp risers immediately after that. and towards the end of this whole thing i’ll have beautiful solid 3″ pieces wood risers seemingly floating in air.

LOVE THIS LIFE! so grateful.

making resolutions for me means carrying over a few of last years resolutions. my most favourite, and often easiest to accomplish is when eating out to avoid chains. basically support local, where ever i am.
i try to do this in my shopping too, but i fail. miserably. i do kinda absolutely shine when it comes to keeping strong about eating at local small places. BUT! last night i found out some interesting things about Claim Jumpers, one of my fav out-to-eat places. we all know CJ is a chain. a chain that serves humongous plates of citrus salad! it has been on my list of Places To Avoid. and i’ll admit i failed sometimes when faced with a choice of some local unknown untested strip mall foods or CJ. i’ve been known to go to CJ. it’s true. i lose my resolution in the face of Claim Jumpers.
Well now i’ve got some background info that may serve us all to treat CJ as a local joint. or at least get warm fuzzies when we think of CJ. Claim Jumpers used to be owned by the Nickoloffs, Carl (dad) & Craig (son) they sold it in the late 70’s but it started in Los Alamitos. prior to that Carl ran Niks’ Coffee Shop in LB. see where i’m going…?
now some more (4th gen?) Nickoloffs run 2 local places here in San Clemente. my most fav sammich shop, Humphrys and Nicks in SC. there’s also Nicks in Laguna. whenever i wanted a good enuf deli sammich i had to drive up to Tudors in Dana Point. now a mere 1.5 miles away i have SAMMICHES at Humphrys.
i’ve never been to Nicks here on Del Mar and thats not because i didn’t know about it. i do. i’ve been told plenty how good it is. but that often comes with how crowded it ALWAYS is. i’ve been waiting to hear reports of the furor dying down, don’t suppose it will any time soon… Guess i’ll just have to bite my aversion of crowds and go check it out.

so what do you think? Claim Jumpers is back on the ‘support local’ resolution? it feels like a stretch but a logical one.

last i heard Nicks in SC doesn’t do reservations so lets queue up and go check it out for dinner tonight. i want you to be our guest so come over, k?

got this in one of those mass forwards. i hate them ftr. But! my friend that sent it to me, i know she only adds me to really good ones or bad depending on the snark factor. so i tend to read hers. i cut out most of the truly fundy God parts. it’s good reading ideas…
These  are best & more powerful when
eaten raw.   We’re such slow learners…
God left us a great clue as to what foods  help what
part of our body!
God’s Pharmacy!  Amazing!  sliced Carrot looks like the human eye.
The  pupil, iris and radiating lines look
just like the human eye… And YES, science now
shows carrots  greatly enhance blood flow
to and function of the  eyes. has four chambers and is red. The
heart has four chambers and is red. All of the
research shows
are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure
heart  and blood food.
Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart.
Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of
the research today shows grapes are also
profound  heart and blood vitalizing food.  Walnut looks like a little
brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper
cerebrums and lower cerebellums.  Even the
wrinkles or folds on  the nut are just like
the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop
more than three (3) dozen
neuron-transmitters for brain function.
Kidney beans actually heal and help maintain kidney
function and yes, they look exactly like the
human kidneys., Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many
more look just like bones. These foods
specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23%
sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you
don’t have enough sodium in your diet, the body
pulls it from the bones, thus making them
weak.  These foods replenish the skeletal
needs of the body.,
Eggplant and Pears target the health and
function of the womb and cervix of the female –
they look just like these organs. Today’s
research shows that when a woman eats one
avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds
unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical
cancers. And how profound is this?  It
takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado
from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over
14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of
nutrition in each one of these foods (modern
science has only studied and named about 141 of
Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they
grow.  Figs increase the mobility of male
sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well
to overcome male sterility. Potatoes look
like the pancreas and actually balance the
glycemic index of diabetics. assist the
health and function of the ovaries, Grapefruits,
and other Citrus fruits look just like the
mammary glands of the female and actually assist
the health of the breasts and the movement of
lymph in and out of the breasts. look like the body’s cells.
Today’s research shows onions help clear waste
materials from all of the body cells. They even
produce tears which wash the epithelial layers
of the eyes. A working companion, Garlic, also
helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free
radicals from the body.

I swear to Maude it was NOT intentional.

CSA radishes in cream & thyme sauce. Served on my daily dishes. Cranberry pink grapefruit juice. Pink & blue toile tablecloth, which has been on there for weeks.
What a weird dinner.

FTR The radishes are NOT a hit.

There’s a sink on that stick fence Dear Liza

The only way to view Fuster’s art tiles is thru a blurry lens. Trust me. In fact I’d wager
It’s how he sees his art anyway.

The view from Fuster’s top deck.

Pretty babies. Well not the coco taxi but it’s relevant to Cuban life fersure.

Can go back now?

Everything. All the time.
