So ending my surfing career... Not really, I did book a private 2 hour lesson that turned out to be one hour where the guy caught a few waves while I was scared to stand up & fall. I'd been spocking out where I was going to go the whole trip, debating whether I should … Continue reading Mahalo O’hau
Or success envy mostly. We saw "Where did you go Bernadette?" yesterday, girls day out with my DIL. Weird watching that movie with one of us on the Bernadette side of things and the other one just starting out life with my son. It's the modern day twist of "Shirley Valentine" of what women go … Continue reading Jealousy
Totally wiped out in a good way. I must have slept 10 hours last night after painting then going to look at wedding dresses with my DIL for the actual wedding in Turkey. She looked beautiful!! Can't wait to get the dress and have it altered for her. The woman who was helping us was … Continue reading Late Start
There are two camps that look very appealing to me while I sit around planning summer, Greenhorn Ranch in the Sierra's and a Piano Camp outside of Boulder, CO. As a kid I never went to camp, only to my grandparents house for a month every summer. There was a brief stint at Camp Fire … Continue reading Summer Camps for Adults
April is pretty packed, Arizona this weekend then back to Manhattan Beach the next. But first, I write... There's a house in Bend, Oregon that is within reach and is absolutely beautiful. Whenever I go through a town I like, I obsessively Zillow it to death to see if it's feasible. Bend seemed great, until … Continue reading Cat Lady
Not really, I did mean to get up early to catch the sunrise on the top of Mt. Diablo, that just didn't happen. The alarm went off at 6:30a, I had to tell Alexa twice to turn it off before I woke up at 7:30a. Another reason I'll never be a great photographer, I can't … Continue reading Snow Day!
Still nursing a bruised tailbone from my Tahoe trip, it's such a bummer!! Every time I feel good to go, something happens to disrupt my flow (or bum my high). At least it wasn't my back again, that takes me out for months. My truck is pretty much the only car that's comfortable at least, … Continue reading Where to live??
Alright universe, walking it is!! I keep trying to do the things I used to do, pretty well I might add, and get nailed by some random fall or something taking me out again. I was on a roll! I swam some laps the other day, was feeling good about taking things slow to build … Continue reading Injured in Tahoe
Despite being rainy and cold everywhere I've been and being publicly called out on FB as looking to move into a trailer. I covered a lot of ground this past few weeks, now I just need to get back into shape which was not even on my NYR list of things to do. I have … Continue reading So far, so good 2019
My absolute favorite thing to do when I was a kid growing up in Manhattan Beach was dive under those waves, I could spend all day in the water. The best feeling for me was still having that salt and sand all over me when I got out, I never even rinsed off. There was … Continue reading Surfing
