High Tea at Aubrey Rose

We had so much fun going to the coral tea room that I decided to look up other highly rated tea places in San Diego. The Aubrey Rose seems to be quite well regarded in the community.

Full time work, part time school. First semester reflection.

I feel like I have two full time jobs. I have my real full time job where I spend 45+hours per week, and my part time school commitment that I have decided to commit a conservative 15 hours a week studying and attending class. I knew something would have to give when I signed up for this. I was hoping that thing would be my breaking point. I was hoping that if I worked the hardest I could possibly work, stay focused the most I ever had before, I would break down some kind of capacity barrier and reach that next level of efficiency. Instead, I am finding my priorities shifting under my feet. My relationships have crumbled, my hobbies are fading, and my health is deteriorating. I am having serious doubts about the path I’ve chosen for myself.

High Tea at the Coral Tea House

My friend Megan was in town this weekend. I was tasked with the business of finding a lovely little venue to catch up and enjoy a casual visit. The Coral Tea House, which was only peripherally in my consciousness, immediately came to mind. It turned out to be both aesthetically pleasing and relaxing.

San Dieguito River Park

Buffy, Alex, and I went on a stroll in San Dieguito River Park, Just on the other side of Lake Hodges. We tried to reach a spot called Mule Hill or the Mule interpretive center. We imagined a place where a pack of wild mules performed interpretive dance. That isn't what we found, but I got a few good photos at least, I think.

Buffy at Blackmountain

Buffy hiked blackmountain monday afternoon. It was actually quite an eventful hike. We saw a snake and alex twisted his ankle. Buffy did swimmingly as always, so sweet.

Sorry I didn't get to photograph the snake. Alex and I were so frightened for buffy that we cleared the area pretty quick.

My Mountain Lion Encounter

Ominous Foreshadowing Sign

Alex, Buffy, and I went out to Mule hill Trail in San Dieguito River Park around dusk today, after work. We decided to skip the adobe house part of the trail to extend the visit into the wilderness a little bit more. Things started out okay. The teller at the gas station said that we might even see deer out tonight. We saw some deer, even some rabbits. I managed to take a photo of a colorful bird and that it would be the experience of the trip. I was wrong.
