Walk this AM

Usually on Friday mornings we sit around on our laptops, a waste of time but today we went out as if it were a work day and took a walk and got stuff done. First, a walk at a local neighborhood park ... Read more
New Spark Streak
Friday, July 27, 2018      6 comments

Today I broke an old Spark streak I've had since Sept 14, 2011 of 428 days logging in, made it to 429!. Wonder how long I can keep doing it? I am pretty happy with this. In this year+ I've been sicker than ever before but SP has kept me on track... Read more
Stress over a Rat!

Last week Tacy found a tiny lump on Lemon. Then the next day another, and the third day another one. So off to the vet. He was impressed, he couldn't find them. But once Tacy pointed them out, he did and recommended surgery. It happened yesterd... Read more

80% contained
Sunday, July 08, 2018      9 comments

When I went to bed last night, the Holiday Fire was 80% contained. That is amazing for one of our fires, 80% in just over 24 hours. And the acreage is quite low. So this is awesome news. But 20 homes are gone. But everyone and their animals are... Read more
Gonna be a long night...

It 10:54 PM and there is a fire 2 miles away. So many of our friends live in these neighborhoods. Mandatory evacuations. We are packed and will be watching the news as long as we can. We keep losing power. And it's still 100 and 11 % humidity. ... Read more
Wine & Food Festival
Sunday, July 01, 2018      6 comments

Yesterday was the Wine & Food Festival at the Natural History Museum. Wine is the one thing ingestible that triggers my migraines. I love wine, but except for an odd sip here and there, it's been over 25 years since I drank it. I used to open a ... Read more

Solstice Parade 2018
Monday, June 25, 2018      6 comments

Solstice Parade! It happened. It was nice. This was the first time the sun didn't make an appearance that I can remember since it started back in '74. And it's the first time I actually attended since '87. In the '90s it got a little raunchy wit... Read more
30 years ago, and now
Friday, June 22, 2018      7 comments

30 years ago this summer, for some reason the hospital where I was to give birth couldn't hold Lamaze classes. So the Natural History Museum offered up the Chumash Hall for evening classes for one group and I was in it. Now that child is the man... Read more
Thinking of Mom
Sunday, June 10, 2018      8 comments

Yesterday was the 8th anniversary of her death. I tried to keep it out of my mind. I chopped LOTS of vegetables. I do that when I'm stressed (I made 4 salads the morning of my wedding as I planned just to be sure to be relaxed!). And today... Read more
Cute Rats Visiting :)
Saturday, June 09, 2018      9 comments

My daughter's rats are here again. They stayed with us for nearly 2 months when Tacy vacationed and was swamped at work. We'll be seeing them a lot this summer as Tace's life has become so busy. While at the old home we just get quieter and quie... Read more
May Day

I love that my birthday is May Day. I was always told I was my Dad's little May Basket. When I was little I thought I had the best birthday because my birthday was the only one where we opened our front door and there was a basket of flower... Read more

Wow, what a tumble
Monday, March 05, 2018      7 comments

I just had to cave into my love of Corned Beef. I had been craving it last summer but "It's seasonal" and was impossible to find. Then I got my CKD diagnosis and cut the sodium and did a fine job.I don't know why I suddenly insisted I had to hav... Read more
