Fogged In

So yesterday I played hooky (hence MIA status here) and did my part in catsitting while the Chef's parents are out of town.  Conclusion:  Mondays spent doing approximately nothing are even better than weekends.  The only thing that could have made it sweeter was if Sonic delivered a couple of Chicago dogs as I sat wrapped in blankets surrounded by cats while soupy fog swirled around outside.

A girl can dream.

When I left in late afternoon (still too lazy to drive to Sonic) I pulled over to grab a couple pictures of the socked in harbor.  As I stood there looking out it didn't even remotely feel like Orange County, but more like wherever it is that Kevin Costner's character lived in Message In A Bottle.  Am I the only one who's seen that movie about, oh, 10 times?  Sap in the house.

Anyway:  examine the foggy evidence.   It was glorious.  And I think the OC could use a few more days like this to slow things down a little.  Like I said, a girl can dream.

Normally you can see straight across the water.  
Instagram rules.
Where that fog is? Uh, on a clear day there is an unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean.
Clearly I was a bit taken with the fog.  Crazy old fave scary movie, too, btw.
Closer to my house the sun managed to peek out for a bit.  
*Crosses fingers for more fog tomorrow*

Oh and p.s. on the lion tamer front:
Victory!!

Hope you had a great weekend.  
I wish today was Friday.  
I need a nap.

Some days you just have to play hooky. That was on my agenda for Monday after the busy weekend, but it didn't work out. I got to use the phrase 'saga of ridiculousness' in explaining the crazy day to my sister, though. So that's almost as fun.

Ok it's not. Your day is better.

I so want to play hooky! Ahh to be independently wealthy. In the meantime I am stuck in India all next week for work so should make the most of random situations like that too!

Oh my goodness! A foggy Monday lying on couches wrapped in blankets?? DERAMY. The busier I get (e.g. NOW), the more I long for that kind of non-schedule. It's so precious! I hope you're sufficiently rejuvenated. :)

I love the way the fog has been rolling in late afternoon. It's eery but awesome. Now if the temp would drop about 10 degrees it would really feel like Oct!!

oh how i love the fog!! it reminds me of san francisco, which pretty much had thick fog every day. there's just something so quiet about it, inviting you to stay inside and cozy up with all your favorite comforts.

This morning was so soupy, I thought something was wrong with my contacts-it's my favorite kind of weather. And huzzah for the lion tamer!

Sara Szatmary said...

VIctory is yours! Haha. Great pics--love the fog too!

Bravo you cat whisperer you! Some mornings the fog lays over the river and it is like driving into the abyss when I cross the bridge to go to work ~ eeeeeerieeeeee. Message in a Bottle is a fav here also ~ love it! I think they were on Chesapeake Bay were they not?? I can't believe I do not know that ~ damn you now I am going to have to Google it!

Lori said...

OK ~ I was wrong ~ it was South Carolina ~ Outer Banks..... damn ~ I hate being wrong!

Playing hooky is the sweetest thing. Knowing that you would be working, instead of winning over the cats, rules.

Fog rules too. Pictures are fantastic.

Josie said...

Carrie, these are BEAUTIFUL. And do-nothing days are the greatest. A nap sounds pretty phenom.
