I don’t usually work on Fridays, but I did have to work a half day today. The weather was pretty much perfect this morning and I impatiently counted the minutes until I was free and able to walk.

I dropped off 10 more books at the small lending library on 14th and Clinton. I was surprised to see it empty. Even the book by Ross Perot had been taken.

From there, I decided to walk over to Maitripa College. I saw the Dali Lama speak less than a month before on my birthday. As I walked around this building, it was nice to reflect on that amazing day. Once I realized that I was only about 8 blocks from the goats, I had to walk over to see them.

The minute I cross Hawthorne, I’m immediately on the look out for Kanye stickers. I found this gem on Morrison.

After I took this picture, I walked around the corner to the windows in the background.

And took this. I can’t decide which one I like better.

As I took this picture, I realized that today’s unintentional theme was buildings and the sky above them. Probably because the sky and clouds were so gorgeous that I spent the majority of the time looking up. I kept high stepping my steps to avoid tripping since I wasn’t looking where I was going. I’m sure I made quite a sight.

I haven’t seen these signs before. Having goats here is a good thing. I really hoping they will be here for years to come.

I got to pet this little baby since she was laying so close to the fence. While I was petting her, a dude with a dog also stopped. The dog and goat were nose to nose sniffing each other and neither one seemed to mind.

Another picture of a building with the actual building behind it. This drawing of New Seasons is more informal than the other ones I’ve seen. I do love the addition of the cat on a skateboard.

I passed these flowers when I was carrying books to the lending library. I made a mental note to get a picture on the return trip home. I was pleasantly surprised to find the bush covered in bees.

I’ve posted a picture of this cat before. Today she wouldn’t stop rolling over. She rolled it over at least 5 times while I visited her.

  1. I liked the pic with the row of arched windows taken through another window with the reflection of the sky the best. Kayne stickers? Is this a thing now? Looks like an amazing day for a walk!
