Christmas Boat Parade
I posted 2 days ago that it was hot in sunny southern CA. Yesterday it poured buckets and today it's warm and breezy. Everyone is putting up Christmas decorations in their yards.
Next weekend, my Dd's bigger neighborhood (about 1 sq. mile) w... Read more
Unsunny southern California
Two days ago I wrote about sweating and sunshine and beaches in southern sunny California. Yesterday at the malls, everyone was wearing shorts and flip flops. Today it is raining bucket! Coldish, thunder, lightning, rain, rain, rain, torrenti... Read more
Shopping & Walking
Went shopping with my DD on this Black Friday. We were gone for 8 hours. However, I'm only going to clock in 40 minutes. My DD and I figured out that I wouldn't count window shopping, shopping in the stores, and ambling along. We would only ... Read more
Thanksgiving in Sunny Souther Calif.
Rememeber the song, "Over the hills and through the snow, to grandma's house we go?" Well they certainly weren't in southern California. We are here to celebrate with my daughter and her family. We are in Oceanside, which is about 30 miles no... Read more
No, it's not that time of the year. A lady sitting in the chemo office said, I've got two newspapers. It reminded me of April Fool's Day. When my kids were younger, I'd put out $20.00 several weeks before April 1st. I'd tell them that the on... Read more
Once I Was a Wimp
I don't like exercise and I used to HATE it. Of course, I had bad knees and was a couch potato. My grandson was in Kindergarden and he took a bus home. I would meet the bus everyday and it was a whole 6 houses away--around the corner, so I co... Read more
In a former life--younger years--I was a journalism major in College. What I liked best was proof reading, which is looking for spelling and vocabulary errors. I still do it, in a way. You know those pesky fliers you get on your door or under... Read more
No More Moving!
I told my DH to find our home for EVER. I hate moving and didn't want to ever move. Well, I shouldn't have had 4 kids. I've helped everyone of them move--more than once! I hate moving. I hate packing and storing and sorting. My oldest daug... Read more
Can You Say Stupid?
I've discovered something as I've gotten older. I'm not necessarily getting smarter. I am known around my house as the Dental Floss Queen. I have Dental Floss and plastic picks for teeth in every room, my purse, car, etc. And if I can't get... Read more
Can Illegal Drug Use be Funny
No, drug use is NOT funny. However, looking back at certain things can cause one to laugh. As my DD and I were walking this a.m., we were talking about some of the things kids try nowadays. It seems one of the things they are doing is drinkin... Read more
Ever since I was a child, I have mimicked people. If they have an accent, I try to copy it. If I'm walking behind them and they walk differently, I find myself copying their walk. If they have a facial tic or say a word with a funny mouth sha... Read more
This is a touchy subject--but it's funny too. I live in the central valley of California. Our biggest business is agriculture and we supply the world with food. That's what we do. There are some foods that would be scarce without us. Anyway... Read more
Blogging full time
How do they do it? How do bloggers and newspaper columnists keep the words coming. I love to write. I was a journalism major in college. However, coming up with constant new ideas is hard. I ask other people for help with topics and then pu... Read more
Went to the mountains with a daughter and 2 grandbabies (not hers). Had a good time. It was sunshiney and cold. Had a good fire going. The babies had fun running around the sand on the beach and then up higher in the snow. We had to leave e... Read more
I have never been much of a t.v. or movie viewer. I prefer reading. However, our direct t.v. or something is able to record programs we don't have time to watch. So I've started recording programs and watching them while exercising. It makes... Read more
