I only had my mobile phone camera with me on my bicycle ride, but I think it did a good job of catching some spectacular clouds. As they say, “The best camera is the one you have with you.” 😊

I finally saw Comet NEOWISE! Thanks to my friend Jeremy’s tips and advice, I was able to spot the comet just over the treeline and captured a couple of photos with my Fujifilm X100T camera. It’s the first comet I’ve ever seen so I was pretty stoked. 😄☄

I make Mariko laugh when I came back from the photo session because I was carrying my tripod/camera, had my headlamp on my forehead, and around my neck was my compass and binoculars. I struck a pose and she said “Dasai!!” (uncool) 🤣

After preparing the spaghetti sauce and meatballs and putting it on simmer, I decided to be good and immediately wipe the stove-top. Then of course I did this. Oh well. The spaghetti was yummy. 😀🍝

Taco Table Faux-Pas

Today we had shrimp tacos for dinner, and while I was taking a photo, Mariko said that the pot of beans (which I usually put in a bowl) was ugly and shouldn’t be in the picture. While I don’t disagree, I thought this was a funny photo of her literally pointing it out. Also, we have some Peanuts glasses that have been in use for years, but those shouldn’t be on the table for the pre-eating photo session. Double-foul! 😆

Anyways, the food was delicious. ❤️🌮 We also enjoyed a spicy diced Serrano pepper from the garden too!
