What Are Your Plans This Weekend

The air quality near San Francisco is deemed very unhealthy this morning, seems almost overnight new fires have sparked or spread. Since by Thursday morning we were able to breathe a little, but throughout the night it became unbearable once again-this time the smell of rubber burning is the best way to describe  it.  What’s worse is that there is no rain  in the forecast, so the idea of this situation lingering on, is concerning.

Our next door neighbor decided to have a small classroom in the garage of his home. Where six kids plus their parents would try their best to give their children the classroom experience needed for positive development. They kids have recess in the backyard, and a lunch time outdoors, all monitored by different parents each day. It’s kind of refreshing, since their time for a break, is the time I take my break from my computer, which I normally don’t do.

Discovering new trails is pretty much out of the question for us this weekend, as there is nowhere to escape the smoke shrouding pretty much most of the state. Although I am longing for a trip up to Tahoe.

I was thinking yesterday that, if given a chance to spend a week in a home/set used for a movie, which one(s) would it be. I realized after jotting down a list, that there are too many homes/apartments, so I am going to simply list a few of my past favorites:

When I was younger, I dreamed of living in a home exactly like the one in the original Mary Poppins, on the very street, 1 Cherry Tree lane. When I stumbled upon Nothing Hill a few years back, I jumped up and down like a child, since the area was the perfect reminder of one of my favorite films of all time.


When I started writing, I craved Diane Keaton’s beach house in South Hampton in As Good As It Gets


Through college I wanted to live in a houseboat, just like the one in Sleepless in Seattle – which I often contemplate while driving through Sausalito and seeing the houseboats perched along the waterfront.

Meg Ryan’s New York apartment in Kate and Leopold – rooftop garden and all


Grace and Frankie beachfront property

A month here – the cottage in The Holiday – to draft up a romance novel

Bramasole – from Under The Tuscan Sun – is the house of all homes for dreamers, writers and romantics – this place I’d stay a year


George Clooney’s home in The Descendants in Hawaii would be my retirement home

How about you?  Which film (set) house did you love enough to consider living there?
