January 2020 recap and February so far

I hope that this blog doesn’t just turn into recap posts, but I haven’t written since my 10-year recap and in that post and the one before that, I didn’t really talk about what was happening in the present day, so let’s get caught up. In the Spanish culture and how my mom grew up,…

December reflections #1 – Through a window

It’s me. I follow this woman named Susannah Conway on Instagram and subscribe to her email newsletter. I’m not sure how I found her (through my sister?) but at the end of every year, she puts out a free workbook called Unravel Your Year that you can fill out to reflect on the year that’s…

haircut!

The sky was blue and full of puffy clouds today, but the temperature was chilly (for here) most of the day, in the low 50s. I have missed getting out to exercise these last few days. Today, I spent more time editing. The UC applications are due tomorrow so there’s been a flurry of activity…

Two 4 One

I didn’t write yesterday (probably could have in the morning), but by the end of the night, I was toast! So tired! Mom and I went to Disneyland(!) to celebrate my 48th birthday(!). We had a great day! I secured my annual pass holder card (new design!), and we were off to the traditional first…

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…

Fall Back Eve

Hooray, two days in a row! We “fall back” time-wise tomorrow. No one really likes it to be dark at 5 pm, but that’s what’s going to happen! So yesterday, I updated you on my October and said that Mom & I were going to see Steve Poltz. We did, and it was fun! I…

November is here!

Wherein I attempt NaBloPoMo (national blog posting month) – posting every day in November. October went by without a check-in (sorry), but I’ll wrap up the month now. I’ll start with some stats: I worked at the bookstore 10 days (usually 4 or 4 1/2 hours each time). It’s not a lot, but honestly, I…

September check-in

Hi friends! It’s been over a month since I’ve posted so I thought I’d get you caught up on my happenings. I guess the main thing was that I started working at the Cypress College bookstore. I started on August 7 with three other people. They are all students at the college. We were trained…

August is upon us

Since the last time I wrote, I guess the thing that has changed or the thing that has become a thing is that I get up and go for a walk. My sister turned me on to an app called All Trails, and I have made good use of it. I think I mentioned last…

life so far + Escondido, Lady Brain Fest & Ugly Mug

Hi friends! I’ve almost been home now for as long as I was on the road. I’m in my 3rd week in my new (old) home in La Mirada CA. The first week was basically relaxing and recovering from my trip. It felt good and familiar to think of my mom’s house as the place…
