Shorter, fatter,* happier + holiday days off

When last I left you, I was recovering from the twisted ankle I suffered on Saturday. On Monday, I worked then I took Mom’s car to get air in her tires then picked up some sandwiches for Jersey Mike’s. The rest of the day I took care of the financials and rested. On Tuesday, I…

~ 51 ~ and more

Let’s rewind to Thursday. I took the day off so Mom & I could have a SoCal adventure day. We headed out around 10 am and drove down to San Juan Capistrano and went to the restaurant where we had reservations for 11:30 am, L’Hirondelle, which is right across the street from the mission. The…

Wakanda Forever & car maintenance

My local theater is offering $5 Tuesdays for a limited time so I took advantage and went to see the latest Marvel movie, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” I saw the first Black Panther movie, but I am by no means a Marvel fan. I’ve seen the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, but that’s about it…

Sunday

Another good night of rest, and when I woke up, I chose to head to Starbucks and relax into the day. I started watching a new show called “The Big Brunch” with Dan Levy on HBO Max. You know I love Bake-Off, but the challenges have been sub-standard, and I had read that this brunch…

A taste of Greece

Friday nights these days for me are made for sleeping. I swear I get the best sleep on Friday nights. I woke up this morning with eight hours of real sleep meaning I still had an hour and four minutes awake (according to my FitBit and my CPAP) but eight whole hours of actual sleep!…

Friday – 2/9

The weather has improved so it’s been sunny but cool. I went back to Aqua Zumba last night. I had missed it for two weeks while I was in Greece. Then the week I got back, class was cancelled due to a COVID exposure. And then on Tuesday, it was pouring rain (technically there was…

Mid-week check-in

I know that NaBloPoMo is supposed to be every day, but you know what, my days so far this week have been a bit lackluster. Not that that’s a bad thing! Monday and Tuesday were both rainy days so the mood was definitely cozy socks and binge-watching. I worked in the morning, then Mom &…

Weekend recap

Saturday morning I slept in, and it was magical. I didn’t wake up until after 8 am! That’s almost unheard of for me. I got dressed and left to get on a trail. I hiked about four miles on a flat trail, and it felt good, except that I developed a wee blister on my…

Friday – first of nine left

That’s a weird way to look at it, but that’s what came to me for this title. There are nine Fridays left in the year, and this one’s already done for. How did you spend yours? As for me, I worked, read, then I took Mom to her podiatrist. He’s a very nice man, and…

Productive day & A Few Good Men

So my sister, Sandy, tends to adopt things to bring home after vacations. Not a pet or anything like that, but a habit or a new thing to her that she enjoyed from her trip. From Costa Rica, she developed her coffee drinking. And in talking with her about what she might bring back from…
