Past and Present

I went to a flea market last Sunday.  It was a warm day, but still fun looking at old stuff.  I like old paper items and found these.

A Nature magazine from 1949.

Some cards and postcards from the early 1900’s.

And an old book of Norwegian sardine recipes.

Here is one of the recipes. (Notice the sardines are arranged like a SUN). My grandmother was from Norway. I remember there always being sardines in the cupboard when I was a child, but the recipes in this book are pretty unusual.

I walked around a neighborhood in San Pedro the other day. There were pretty clouds in the sky, but the air was humid. The homes in this area are old and charming, and many overlook the port.  Ships from around the world dock there.

The next one was driving back home. The port and water are on the other side of these bushes.

A few miscellaneous shots from the week.

A small sketch.

Maggie after her bath.  Although I dried her with my hair dryer, she was still shivering.

Flowers in my neighbor’s yard.

And a very tiny lemon (the size of my thumb nail) that fell off my lemon tree.

That’s all for today.  Enjoy the remainder of our July days.  Thank you for visiting my blog.
