Hikes, bread and dentists
I hope this finds everyone in good spirits and enjoying late Summer. I've been a hiking fool, this past weekend I hiked Runyon Canyon twice. Once on Saturday morning and once on Sunday. So, it was a busy weekend. I also went to the dentist and had two wisdom teeth pulled! OUCH! But it wasn't too bad, I was lucky I guess.
Sunday, I also baked this zucchini bread with a big zucchini that a co-worker had grown in his garden.
which reminds me of a story. A while ago I worked in a tall sky scraper in Downtown Los Angeles. A lady friend of mine who is an African American was in the elevator holding a big zucchini. I got into the elevator and said in a smirking tone "Whatcha gonna do with that?" she turned 3 shades of red and exited the elevator the next exit, even though it was not her floor. She called me later and we laughed. I always think of that moment, her and giggle a little whenever I bake Zucchini bread.
Have also been hiking almost every night. Then watching the amazing sunsets.
Have a wonderful day, I hope someone or something makes you giggle too.
