What I've Been Up To ...

I've been having fun and loving the beautiful San Diego weather!

Enjoying the beautiful view from my parent's patio

It is the perfect place to read.
Enjoying Dad's yummy dinners and dining al fresco on the patio

 Working on genealogy and scanning old family photos.
Love this one of my mom as a baby with her parents,

 and this is my great-great grandmother with her sisters.

 I've been to a few Padre games.
LOVE that stadium.

I also loved Bernie.
I didn't realize how much I needed to see
Jack Black dressed as Harold Hill 
singing "76 Trombones".
My life feels more complete now.

I've been hanging with this crazy girl.

I taught myself to crochet,
after watching a lot of
weird you tube videos
made by old woman with cats,
and am almost finished making enough granny squares
for a blanket.
I need to find someone who can teach me how to 
put them all together.
Back to you tube ...

I'm working at the San Diego Temple once a week.
I love being there,
and enjoy the peace and the focus that it brings.

My cute sister,
who really loves her dogs,
saved Snuggles from a coyote.
She was being attacked in our backyard
in the wee small hours of the morning.
We had a serious puppy ICU for a few weeks.
I spent more time
in an animal hospital
than I ever imagined I would.
Let it be known,
that in times of crisis,
I can find compassion in my heart for animals.
She's better,
and I am back to enjoying a puppy free zone.
This is the view from my bedroom window.
I love to sit on my bed and read,
or watch Netflix
and enjoy listening to the
 wind blowing through the palm trees.
I think it is one of
my favorite sounds.

I have also spent a lot of time at the beach.
How could I not?!?!?
Hot sand,
cold diet coke,
and a good book
the PERFECT afternoon.
