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…

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…

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…

Germany (Munich) – day 11 (Old Town walking tours)

We slept in since our first tour wasn’t until 10:15 am. We left the hotel around 9 am to get coffee and get to where the tour met. There’s a coffee place directly across the street where we got cappuccinos and croissants that were both good. We had some time before we had to go…

Greece (Chania, Crete) – day 9 (ruins, clouds, Old Town Chania)

A little late writing because last night we had to pack and I needed to get to bed because of our early morning today. Yesterday was Ohi Day in Greece, which commemorates the day Greece said ‘no’ (ohi) to Mussolini before WWII. They have a marching military style parade through the town. We had learned…
