Anna safe travels on the next leg of the journey.

Susan I woke to another smoky hazy day. Yesterdays heat sapped me of all my energy and I crashed into a sleep twice.

There is a breeze blowing this morning so maybe it will bring some rain.

Have a good day everyone.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

I can't believe all the fires breaking out everywhere.
My friend took me for a drive and we saw the bare hills
and the houses that were destroyed here. I often wonder how
people get on after the aftermath of a fire. Hard to imagine.

I can't believe my week here is over already. We are going to
the Getty Museum today and then to my airport hotel as I have
an early morning flight to Vancouver tomorrow morning.

I feel for you guys sweltering while I am enjoying lovely Spring like temps.

Georgia, we had awful heat and plenty of smoke from North Stradbroke Island's fire today.We had a couple of breaks in the air con ut church is not air conditioned so e were under big fans instead for a lot of the services. I agree, the fires are disrupting so many people right now. They say it will get cooler and there could be some rain firing up after tomorrow?

Anna, I love how your trip is progressing. You must be having so much fun.

Susan glad you had a nice one too.

Anna the heat today is going to be horrendous.

So early and the heat is unbearable. Have to go out for a short while but it will kill me.

I pray those poor folks can get their lives in order. It is so tragic and so close to Christmas too.

Great to hear you are in rehab and still losing weight. Well done!

I'm glad they caught the firebugs. The should be strung up for
causing so much destruction.

No rain today, but a few degrees cooler, but so comfortable.
Tomorrow I leave my friend and travel to LA and I'll stay in a hotel
as i have an early flight to Vancouver on Monday. I will see so many
of my Banff friends.Happy December everybody!

Yes, they do suspect a number of the fires were deliberately lit, They are so dreadfully destructive and frightening to be near or in. Sadly, I believe there was even a fire related death today.

Richard, I am glad you have made it to Rehab and are still going strong in the direction you want to go in. I am cheering you on.

Georgia, god to hear you had such a good work party. We had a church ladies one today which we all enjoyed.

Susan I hope they don't come any closer. Smelling them is enough.
We all knew that this was going to be a high fire danger summer with the lack of rain in the last year.
Hope a big downpour comes to put it out.

Anna how nice to have a dinner party. I am sure you enjoyed it immensely.

Last night we had our work Christmas party and it was delightful and so much fun. We went to the Roman empire Italian restaurant and it was so yummy.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

I watched a video about the fires, and it is so sad to see
what is happening. We had some much needed rain here
and today it is sunny. The locals are glad that it was not really
heavy rain as they then would face the danger of mud slides.

My friend had a dinner party last night and it was paella and sangria.
Really good night.

I think there are still over 100 fires burning today. There's one on North Stradbroke Island and also at Wamuran so we can smell smoke but are not in any danger.

The storm didn't come to us in the end, Georgia. It swept over us and we had a spattering of rain in the back yard, and gusty wind. Our new window awnings got tossed around a bit but were not damaged. We didn't lose power. I am glad you had no damage either.

Today is so hot and muggy. Hubby and a good friend are installing blinds for the hot side of the house today. I am providing cold drinks and moral support and running the air con for when they need a cool break.

Yes, as long as I a accurate enough, the quilt should go together pretty easily :) I always get my ideas from other people/books and my quilting teacher helps work out what effect I want. I'm really not that clever.

Anna, I didn't know you were going to California. I was born there! It's doubly nice to think of you being there now. I have lots of relatives in Los Angeles, San Jose, Ahwahnee, Bakersfield and Fresno. Have a great time!

Georgia, I just received some warnings from the Council about the high fire dangers tomorrow. It's going to get to 37 degrees or so. Ugh.

Well done on the quilt Susan. My friend here in Ventura is a Californian
through and through. I fought falling asleep till the evening and fell asleep
at midnight their time which would have been 6pm next day our time.
the time difference is 18 hours ahead for Australia.

Georgia, it will be good to be bus at the shop. What are you doing for Christmas
this year? Your place or Vas's?

Beautiful warm days and a little cool at night. How is SE QLD? Getting hot?

Georgia, well done getting organised for Christmas. I am only partially ready too. Yes, I had a good day yesterday,

Today was a good day too. I went quilting in the heat and worked out a pattern for a quilt I am making for a friend's 60th in May.

Got to the airport in plenty of time. After I checked in, went to the service
counter to ask for boarding assistance. the customer service girl asked
how severe my pain was and if I could actually sit still for 14 hours. Panic
set in as I realised she had to check with a medical officer. I could just
imagine not being allowed to board. After what seemed like ages, followed
another gentleman to the gate and was told it would be OK.

I got up lots of times to walk around and drank loads of water. 14 hours
was a long time, but it went fast especially as I slept as soon as I got on
due to my meds zonking me out. Plane was chockers and we left about
30 minutes early and got to Vancouver early. Peeps, consider Air Canada
and Vancouver as a gateway to the US. I pre-cleared customs and it was
a breeze. They saw I had a checked bag and made me wait till they checked
it and as soon as my name came on the board, I went to passport control control.

That meant my suitcase came off first in LA and we were early getting there too.
My Spark friend FRANKLY5 sent a limo for me and I got driven to her home.

Had a lovely time getting to know each other and her hubby made me a lovely burger.

Resting now and fighting the urge to sleep so I can sleep well tonight.

Today I am doing last minute things and my number has taken the battery
out of the car so that it doesn't drain when i am away. Getting to feel that
I am actually going now.

Gary, that is a long time that you have been in hospital. I hope that rehab
will help to get you back to good health.

I might try to fit in a physio somewhere tomorrow. My body needs it.
These painkillers are making me feel like a zombie I think.
Going to take a break tomorrow and go to the movies to see "Widows".
Make me really sleepy.

Boy that storm and high winds ripped into the coast this morning as I was
getting ready to go to a funeral. One of the ladies from my exercise class
invited me. It was a lot more civilised than our usual ones. I met a lady
who knows of my friend's family. Small world.

One of my friends came and we went for coffee. She was fantastic and
i got so many jobs done today. Now it's just cleaning the house and packing.

Found a beautiful top at Millers. it is by Maggie Tabberer and was 40% off.
This will go well with my black pants and skirt so that I can coordinate better.
Went to Aldi and bought a backpack with wheels. That will be better for my back.
Gave her all my stuff from the freezer as I am turning off the main switch.
My neighbour will come to take out the car battery so that it doesn't die till we
come back. 4 sleeps to go. Clock is ticking.

I love that photo too, Anna :) Glad you are getting close to being prepared for your trip. The back pack sounds very useful. I spend a lot of time papercrafting and quilting. I am making a lot of Christmas items for the markets at the moment.Another friend is coming by this afternoon to borrow a butterfly stamp I have. She makes cards for a charity whose symbol is the butterfly. They need lots of thank you cards.

Hello, Georgia.

The eye Dr has dismissed me for the next 12 months . Yay! I am seeing an Optometrist in Friday to get a new script organised for my glasses.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Love this photo. It was in a little cafe in Moffat Beach, Caloundra.

Have a nice time with your craft friend Susan. I wish I had an idea
about crafts. I used to but not anymore might take up knitting again.

Georgia, sorry it was so short. I decided to come and try and catch everyone
on the Monday as I remember I was going to come when you go shopping
with mum on Saturday but it's too close to my departure.
I hope the iron helps you next week Georgia.
I have got everything I need and I saw a lovely backpack at Aldi for $39 so
when my friend comes to take me for a coffee tomorrow I will go and buy it.
It's not that it was heavy but I had some milk and fruit and was told not to carry
anything heavy for the next few days, so it will work out. I was going to buy an
overnight case, but this backpack has good strong straps and an extra place
for the laptop and also has a handle to wheel it. It will be better for my back.

Richard, I hope that you are getting stronger every day.

Susan it is important to be extra careful and keep up the eye tests. Hope it goes well.

Only 5 more sleeps and I will be on my way. I leave on the 25th and arrive on the 25th...

It is good that the iron helps you so much, Georgia. I know injections are not fun but the results seem worth it?

Anna, you sure are busy. Glad you were able to catch up with family like that.

Richard, I hope your week is going well.

I am going to my eye Dr again this morning for a checkup. My dog is still slowly improving but his back legs are still weak. I am going to see a craft friend this afternoon.

Nice to see you too Anna. Shame about the timing as it would have been nice to see you for longer.

Such is the retail life.

Glad the pain has been relieved.

Now the countdown to what I am sure will be a nice trip.

Utterly exhausted and looking forward to my iron infusion next week. Sad to be excited by it.

Hugs to all.

I am counting the last 6 days now. Gosh, what a day I've had.
Up at sis, coffee with my cousin, then walked to my aunty's and
stayed an hour and then said goodbye to her.

Back to my cousin's and she drove me to Carindale. Met my sister
and 3 cousins, Georgia came in running for 5 minutes.
It was lovely to see everyone. My brother and SIL came, then he dashed
off and I had to run for the bus/train so didn't get to say goodbye to him.

Got two busses to the X-ray place and had a steroid injection on my right
shoulder. the doctor told me I had this for a while as it was slow going in
as it was really finding a blockage. What an instant relief. I came home starving
and had some soup. I am off to bed as I am really exhausted. That nap was good...

Richard, way to go. You are doing really well. I hope you get to a good rehab place
soon.

Susan I hope your dog get completely well soon.

Georgia, thanks for the selfie stick. Glad we were able to catch up even for a little while.
