November’s here

I realized that one of the reasons I have been so reluctant to write about my time in Spain is that it will seem like it’s really over. Does that make sense? I’ve enjoyed reading my sister’s and my mom’s posts about the trip, and I think of the time quite fondly. I just know…

1/30

Somehow, the Giants won the World Series. I dressed as Willie Nelson for Halloween. I went to dinner with a vendor to a nice restaurant in La Jolla called Whisknladle. I feel lost & sad more often than seems normal. I turn 43 this month. I’ll try to write everyday this month. I got rejected…

work, WS, week

It’s been almost a week since I’ve written! Time just flies! Well, over the weekend, I worked. I did get acupuncture, and it was good. I was out almost instantly once she started putting the needles in. So relaxing. I needed it. Han was gone up to FARWest in Oakland. It went well, and it…

Giants and ghosts

Yesterday was fun! On the way home from work, I stopped at the new Boudin SF for a sandwich and salad for dinner. I also stopped at the nearby Baskin-Robbins for some ice cream. I came home, ate, then worked while I watched Game 5 of the NLCS. What a game! Giants were down 2-3…

2012 wrap-up

Well, I must say my blogging this year was pretty atrocious. Except for my valiant effort in November (28 out of 30 days), the rest of my posts for the year add up to just 17. Pathetic. So I’ll try to recap my year here, because there was stuff I did, I just didn’t document…

Superstorm Sandy sure was a bitch! Welcome to November!

Hello friends ~ I don’t know if this is such a good idea, but I’m going to try NaBloPoMo this month. My thoughts go out to everyone on the East Coast who suffered, or is suffering, from the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. I personally don’t have family there, but I have a lot of friends…

November

Hello November! My 2nd favorite month simply because this is my birth month! The month didn’t start too well, though. We had to take our truck to the shop, again. It had a dead battery due to clogged fuel injectors or something like that. But it’s all better now, although the pocketbook took a bit…

happy Halloween

I’ve just posted a bunch of my poems on this site. Just click on Poetry from the top navigation. And now something to get you in the mood for Halloween. Enjoy! One Way Rain it is the way of the rain airborn ocean moves in waves keeps coming changes course like tide follows moon these…

41 years ago…

…a 27-year-old girl from Port Arthur, Texas died in a hotel room in Hollywood from an overdose of heroin. Janis Joplin was unlike any other before or since. I never knew (or didn’t remember) the name of the hotel where she died until today. It’s funny, but it never occurred to me before to want…

autumn approaches

San Diego is known for its beautiful weather all year long. That’s why those of us who have lived here a while kind of relish the slight change of season that occurs around this time. It’s a strange mix. During the day, most days, it’s hot and the Santa Ana winds blow and inevitably lead…

vamos Gigantes

Well, it’s that time of year again.  The challenge to write once a day in November.  I’ll give it my best. The big thing today is that the San Francisco Giants have a chance to win the World Series tonight.  Why do I care?  Because I happen to be among a circle of friends who…

darn it all

I’ve already bombed out on NaBloPoMo, but I’ll try to make it up. Plus I think I have a good reason. Here’s what happened. Yesterday, I went to the grocery store after work. Actually, both Target and the grocery store because Target is much cheaper on most of the staples. With the time change, it…
