First time on a Fixie - SF - and a Revelation

Another random Tuesday off.  It's a beautiful day in SF and I couldn't pass up a chance to take my new fixie out for a ride.  The Giants play in game 6 today and I can't wait.  Yes I am a bandwagoner and proud of it!  I took Embarcadero all the way down to Ghirardelli Square and it was so amazing.  Never did I imagine in a million years I would be able to go out and ride a bike on my own.  Seem childish I know, but I'm sort of an OCD freak.  I think way too much; what if I get a flat tire?, do I look weird on this bike?, what if I fall off in front of a bunch of people?.  It's a demon that I'm trying to conquer.

After a nice bike ride I had another hour on the meter so I went to my favorite cafe Crossroads and had some time with Jesus.  For some reason I was overwhelmed with tears.  I came to a conclusion there is a reason why I can't fully experience the salvation God has given me.  For all my life I have been 'Miss Independent'.   I am learning how to depend on my savior and 'go with the flow'.  I can't know everything, or plan everything out.  What I need to do is open myself up for failure and allow God to make the appropriate changes in my life.  Straight up no chase.

Gallavanting Around San Francisco

There are a few good things about being off during the week; not so busy in the city, everyone else is at work, 'me' time!  I have been enjoying a random Tuesday & Wednesday off to recharge, and refresh.  I get to spend time with myself.  I've been itching to take my camera out and get some photos in.  I don't know if anyone is like me - but I get really shy taking pictures alone in public.  I don't know - insecurity I guess.  So I broke the fear and went against it.

Today I had an early start.  Woke about 8, had some breakfast and coffee.  I went over to the Farmer's Market at the Ferry building.  I'm not a huge produce gal and I'm fine with buying my veggies at Safeway.  But it was a nice day to shoot and walk around when it's not so crowded in that area.  The skies were blue, and lots to see.  The only thing I bought was some almond and walnut brittle with dark chocolate and coffee.  It was deeelish!

I then walked around the Embarcado centers for a bit and decided to head home.

Once I got home, I immediately grabbed my pup and took her to Fort Funston.  Rain, shine, foggy, misty it doesn't matter. Fort Funston is always fun.  We took the whole trail around the top.  Didn't hit the beach this time.

A great day overall.  I spent the last few hours of the afternoon before Game 1 of the World Series at Foglifter Cafe.  My favorite part of living in San Francisco are the cafes!  FogLifter is only 2 blocks away.  It has plenty of outlets and places to sit.  Coffee and food are great.  Service is even better. Plus free wifi.  1 downside; they close at 8.  Which means I have to go to Java Ocean Cafe which is only another 2 blocks to the right and they close at 9.


So, today is my Monday, but I had a fantastic weekend. Now that I have absolutely no excuses to go clubbing, I have to find something else to do. Well, I did it. Free Wednesday@ the Academy of Sciences, and crabbing on the pier. The best part-it was all FREE! I've realized that there is so much to do in this great city and I need to take more advantage of it. Thanks to my bro for coming out to the museum, and Miguel and Niles for the fun crabbing adventure. Can't wait for next weekend.
