Although I haven't added a post to this blog for a while, I have added a few posts to La Mesa Patch during recent months:
- "My Belated Opening Week at La Mesa's Farmers Market" (May 13, 2011)
- "High Fives for Grossmont Center's Summer Concert Series" (June 4, 2011)
- "La Mesa Farmers Market Invaded by Metal Ands (and Human Decency, Too)" (June 20, 2011)
- "My Comic-Con 2011: From Toilet Car to Puddle and Other Things In Between" (July 24, 2011)
Today, after a full week of working 10-12 hours a day on a big project at work, I was never so appreciative of arriving at the weekend. Driving home, not even an angry driver in front of me could dampen my mood. Instead, I found myself so giddy about the weekend that just the simplest things made me smile.
Here are a couple of things that made me grin. (Don't worry, both times I was at a stop light when I snapped the photos.) HINT: Click on the photos to open them up larger.
#1: While stuck on the Bradly Avenue off ramp off of the 67 (and if know the area, you'll know that you can get stuck there forever), my son and I were entertained by a bird taking a break in front of the red traffic light. It was fun to see its outline as we sat there waiting for a green.
#2: Again at another traffic light, I was amused when the car in front of us had some family stickers. While it's quite normal to see cars with a dad, mom, a few kids, and maybe a dog or cat...I have never seen a line up like this one! This animal loving vehicle was a fun sight.
This El Cajon mama hopes that life slows down its pace soon, but in the meantime, maybe some more red lights will bring some unexpected joy.
