birthday eve

2nd post for today (11/18) I got up and went for a walk. Man, I like getting out and getting some exercise. I like it so much more than going to a gym. I may kind of dread getting my ass going, but once I’m there, it’s awesome. I went to Ralph B Clark park…

11/17 recap

I missed posting yesterday because my day was full! I drove down to north San Diego (Poway) where I: had a big cinnamon roll and coffee went for a quick mile & a half walk on a path near a building where I used to work performed at a fun Lady Brain event had drinks…

Cheese & Pie

It’s hard to come up with titles of these posts sometimes. This title refers to what I ate today, haha. I had a ham & cheese croissant from Starbucks and, of course, my iced mocha for breakfast. For lunch, cheese & crackers with some Spanish meats. For dinner(?), the last piece of the chocolate silk…

Friday the 15th

Woke up late (for me), around 7:30 am, but I was at the hitting wall by 8:45 am. I stayed there until about 10:30 am. I so enjoy it. I am curious how I would do against a human. I know I’m not moving as well as I could be to get to balls, but…

Today’s nut

Breakfast at Dalton’s Cafe Work (a rare 8-hour day & also my only day of work this week) Pork burritos with Mom Watch TV, play on phone, general laziness Walk dog, look at full moon with Mom Random and nice convo with Mom and playing with the dog Bedtime

Between dreams and memories

Something happened last night that rarely happens to me. Many writers say that they can’t sleep because they have all these ideas or that they’ll be struck in the middle of the night with an idea. Those things don’t happen to me. I’m not one of those writers. Except last night. I don’t know what…

Walking/Running

After yesterday’s long walk I knew I wasn’t going to go very long today, but I did want to get out there. I went to a short trail (less than 2 miles) in Whittier that I’ve done a couple other times. It has a pretty good incline (my phone showed that I climbed 30 floors),…

A Long Walk

It feels like I haven’t walked too much lately, but I’ve been trying to stay at least a little active every day. But today I told myself to walk. I went to a flat trail that I hadn’t been on since September when my sister and nephew were visiting. I started walking, and it was…

How We Fight for Our Lives by Saeed Jones – a review

I first became aware of poet Saeed Jones a few years ago. April is National Poetry Month, and at work, I would send out poems to co-workers who had signed up for my daily poetry email to celebrate the month. I don’t know if it was 2015 or 2016 when I sent out his poem,…

New clothes

Today I had a little retail therapy. Mom & I went to Kohl’s and I bought some new pants that were a size smaller than I’ve gotten before. Yay! Also this morning, I went to hit tennis balls and do my serving on a court. I feel like I had a good hard session against…
