Hi it’s Charly, welcome to my page. When I’m not hanging with my five furry family members, I’m volunteering with animals, enjoying a Bay Area microbrew or vineyard, and I’m here, interacting with you!

That's what happens when I'm in a hurry to get ready for work.  I'm rushing so much, I knock over my eyeshadow palette and dump all the colors on my lap.  Now I have to change my top to match my new multi-colored jeans!  :-)

Mmmm, seaweed! Yes, it's 8:15am and this is my breakfast.  I've gotten enough strange looks from people walking into the control room, that I thought I would just post it for all to see.  It's not unusual, considering I've been up since 2:30am, so this would be my lunchtime.  That means in actuality, I completely skip breakfast.

 * EXCEPT FOR COFFEE!  God Bless coffee. *  

I also eat a banana every day, assuming I've been to the grocery store recently. If not, I've always got chocolate-covered banana slices in the freezer.  
 God Bless Trader Joe's dark-chocolate banana slices!

I just adore these bears.  Their faces show the love I feel for our state.

My bears.  I've been fortunate to have lived in many places all over the country, but once I got to San Francisco
, I knew I was "home". heart

Thanks to "vanity sizing".  
Over the years, many brands have been increasing the inches in their sizes, as the general population gets larger.  (Note: not more people, but bigger people.)  And they aren't consistent or uniform in their changes!

When I try jeans on, I'm always amazed how one size fits perfectly in a certain brand, yet I need to size up or down in another.  And some brands just don't fit my body-type at all, no matter what size I try.  This chart makes sense!

Marco the Christmas Devil isn't any happier.  (below)

That answers that.  We'll save Christmas for December.  

Now tell that to the retailers! laugh

Early morning construction in our office building, on the floor below us. Sooo distracting and unnerving.
This is what's going on...

Gus & Sasha at 6 months old - June 2010  

Some days are better than others, when you're grieving the loss of a loved one.  Today is one of the bad ones.  

I lost my fiance, Gus, suddenly and traumatically about 6 months ago.  I've learned how to cope and get through day by day, but I never for one minute forget.  Some days, the fog covering my mind and heart is so thick, I feel like concrete weights are holding down the corners of my mouth when I try to smile (not to mention my eyelids).  It's like pushing through mud - exhausting!  

I tried to write something fun and light today, but I can't break through the heaviness.  You can only ignore or push emotions away for so long, until they gain momentum and steamroll over you.  

That's how grief is, and everybody is grieving some sort of loss in their lives.  

Since we are ALL experiencing stress and discomfort at some level, let's practice a little compassion for one another.  
Love and compassion can move mountains.

The Golden Gate Bridge Plaza steps welcome visitors in 22 different languages. 

A closer look... 

Up close and personal... 

Now if I hit the "selfie view" on my phone, the pic turns around and it's me with my sister, Celeste, who was visiting from Mechnicsburg, PA.  She didn't want to ever leave!
