I always walk the financial district in San Francisco, mostly through the construction zones, just to see the progress of the latest architecture marvel being built throughout the city.
So of course, it’s not a shock that I also appreciate this website and the most amazing art and architecture photography they post on Facebook.
I wouldn't mind one of these in my backyard

First weekend of Fall and we, meaning San Francisco, experienced our first rain-ish of weather the season. You know what? I didn’t mind it a bit, because it gave me the chance to stay indoors and clean up and believe it or not get inspired about my writings.
This time of year I tend to shift my attention to warm and cozy indoor places and daydream about Parisian lifestyles. So, of course, it’s no wonder I cam across some visuals here, which remind me of just that.

The only benefit to the fog and cold weather in the city is the fact, you have no choice but to work on indoor projects. So, we did just that over the weekend.
As I stated here, we were experiencing small disappointments last week while painting the kitchen cabinets. Now part of the problem was, we were a bit impatient for the end result, so we simply over reacted midway through. Anyway, while trying to keep the costs down, we opted for a prefabricated formica counter tops, which give the impression of granite but for alot less.
At home depot you can actually purchase the counter tops in various lengths to fit just about any kitchen. They come in 4, 6, 8 and 10 feet long by the standard counter top width. They are easy to cut a hole for the sink and cut down to several smaller sizes to fit the counter space around a stove area. So while we waited for the 4th coat of paint to dry, we worked on installing the counter top. Meanwhile, Home Depot delivered the new dishwasher and oven, which are currently parked in the living room area. I really don’t care for electric stove tops but since the condo was pre-wired for that, we had no choice but to replace the old with the new.
So, everything is coming together slowly but surely. We still have the floors to do in the kitchen and that I will share with you another day.
