Yesterday we did the self guided driving tour of many of the mid century houses Palm Springs has to offer. I discovered a neighborhood where I actually thought it would be possible to l live. Not that I am considering moving mind you, but I was really attracted to the design aesthetic of the low roofs, the clean lines, the small footprint and the backdrop of the dramatic mountains.
Once I upload the photos, I'll share some. We followed that by a meal at Cheeky's, not sure why it is called that, but it had a really eclectic menu and the food was both beautifully prepared and presented. Breakfast was served all day and I passed up the rice porridge with shredded duck and crisp wonton in favor of chantelle mushrooms on toast points with gruyere cheese and two eggs.
We stopped in a neighboring shop where I came across a selection of Tokyo milk which happens to be my all time favorite hand cream, lightly scented shea butter. If I see it I pick it up. Their soap is also lovely.
I've decided to take a break from the project that isn't sorting itself out to my satisfaction and work on a different one for today. Beading is on this morning's agenda followed by a trip to the Grove.
