What a great week!  Last weekend, I spent time with family eating out and taking photos at the CSUF Monument.  Here are a couple views of the sculpture that we have used since 1979:

This week I read and reviewed two books and wrote three blog posts. I viewed a few episodes of The Patient and one more of The Good Fight.

On Monday, I had lunch with an old friend at The Point, a newly discovered restaurant.

Now let’s take a closer look at my week.

The Fall Girl, by Marcia Clark (Currently Reading)

Lessons, by Ian McEwan


That was my week.  It has been another good one, with family and books.  Photographs at the Fresno State Sculpture reminded me of this delightful tradition.  This weekend, there will be more outings and time together.

Here is another photo captured at our Monument in 1984:

    1. Thanks, Harvee, I agree! Usually we have a day here and there, twice a year or so, but it has been three years since I saw my Prague son! Pandemic, of course. Now he is at my apartment sleeping on my Murphy bed! He’ll move around to others in the family, too, before he goes back to Prague.

      Enjoy your week.


    1. Thanks, Wendy, the first sculpture photo in 1979 was kind of a fluke. My boyfriend at the time captured that one, chose the place, etc., and my kids loved it so much that they tried to replicate it every few years. But then we were all apart (Pandemic, etc.), so this year has been our first “reunion” at the monument.

      Enjoy your week.

    I haven’t seen The Patient, but it sounds good. I have finished Anne of Green Gables and I swear I’m going to push myself to not watch the entire series within the same week,
