I see a red door…

I finished my first book of the year last night. It’s called Paint It Black by Janet Fitch. She also wrote White Oleander. The reason I chose to read PiB is because the actress, Amber Tamblyn, who is also a poet and close friends with some of the poets I know, recently announced that she…

last day of November (long post)

My goal of NaBloPoMo went out the window. Ah well. I just published the wrap-up of my work trip to Atlanta (11/11-11/14). That weekend after the trip was okay. I was home by myself since Han was in central and northern CA to play a couple gigs. On Sunday, 11/16, I had my Third Poetry…

The cleanse continues

One thing I forgot to mention that I have started, which is not related to the cleanse but was recommended by my acupuncturist, is taking liquid chlorophyll. The way she described it is that it’s plant blood. My symptoms indicate that there are some issues with my blood. The plant stuff is supposed to help…

quiet Wednesday

This morning I went in for my annual physical. Unfortunately, I didn’t know I needed to fast so now I have to go back tomorrow morning to have my blood drawn. Happily, I had lost 3 pounds since I was there in January. Doesn’t seem like much, but I’ll take it. Other good news was…

stormy weekend

The sky to the west has slowly darkened with storm clouds as the afternoon has worn on, so I’m just waiting for more rain. I just heard some thunder so there’s hope! It rained most of the day yesterday. Unlike many San Diegans, I like days of rain, even with the dumb drivers and the…

work, kitties, writing

This morning I got up early to prep enchiladas to eat tonight because I knew I wouldn’t be home until later (also why I made the pies on Sunday). I also had to go to work early since on Monday, I volunteer and have to leave early. Getting at work at 7 am is something…

Sun, silver linings, slam

I went for a walk at Mission Bay today. It was breezy but so gorgeous. I am tragically out of shape. I’m going to try to walk at least twice a week, even if it is just 10 minutes at lunch. I picked up sandwiches for lunch (I had the day off for Veterans Day)….

beautiful November day

It was warm at 8 am. I went to Target, then got a bagel & a mocha from Panera. Came home and did more laundry, cleaned the kitchen. I watched “Hannibal” (more light viewing). I went out to the grocery store, came home, made lunch, read my book (Silver Linings Playbook). It’s been a puttering…

Tired

Extra hour. Finished my book. Bye to Mom & Dad. Drove to San Diego. Grocery shopping. Dinner. Two loads of laundry. Bed.

I keep forgetting

So this day will have two. I’m enthralled in my current book, Shadow of Night. I’ve been late for appointments & distracted at work. Went to lunch & shopping with Mom today. Lunch was good. Shopping was not. It had been some time since I’d seen myself in a full-length mirror in a state of…
