This weekend: two golden picks

Ah, a rose and a friend - what a great way to celebrate author Louise L. Hay. We recently learned that a rose has been named in the author's honor, a beautiful apricot Hybrid Tea. An ad on the nursery's website reads that it is guaranteed “to produce enormous round petals that provide a lovely fragrance." On Friday Alan and I stopped by the Mission Hills Nursery in the Hillcrest area of San Diego and bought one to grace our rose garden. For information and to see a Louise Hay Rose, go to

For those of you who want more information on Louise Hay, she is the author of many books including the ever popular, “You Can Heal Your Life,” and the founder of Hay House, Inc. a publishing company in Carlsbad.

“A single rose can be my garden…a single friend, my world.” Leo F. Buscaglia

And now a word about food

There is something special about visiting San Diego. Every time I go there I feel as though we have been on vacation - my spirit just soars. It probably has a lot to do with hanging out with our son Andrew and his husband Mike. They are always amusing, intelligent and such great hosts. Of course our two dogs, Sarah Jessica and Parker, love to play together too. Anyway, the next time you are in Hillcrest have dinner at Buonissimo2- the food and the atmosphere – fabulous. Word or rumor has it that all the furniture in the restaurant has been shipped over from Italy. Patrons are handed menus in red paper bags, cute. And if you just happen to meet the waiter Andrew, tell him that another Andrew and his mother sent you!

We also dropped by Costco and they are selling a champagne cheese – oh my gosh, it is delicious!
