A sight for sore eyes …

My son George went to dinner with us last night. He drove over from the university in yucky traffic to spend a few hours with us. He was home about two weeks ago for his Spring Break. But honestly, it doesn’t matter if I have recently seen my college kids. I miss them so quickly after a visit it’s insane! And because George knows that, he made sure he saw us. What a great kid!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you see a sight for sore eyes!!!


The best day EVER …

Adventure awaits us! Today we have a geyser, goats and flowers on our list of things to see. Seriously, stuff like this is what I live for. Being outdoors and seeing new things is so much fun! OK fine, I’ve seen goats and flowers before, but not THESE goats and flowers. And I’ve NEVER seen a geyser in action. Whoa! But all of this is made especially great because I get to experience it with people I love. YAY!

Well, I hope you all plan the best day ever!!!

A very sweet day (OK, I’ll eat it) …

Today we are heading to the Museum of Ice Cream. I am SO EXCITED! And I have a strange one for you too. I don’t even like ice cream. But hey, WHEN IN ROME!

Well, I hope you all have a VERY SWEET day!!!

Still so much to learn …

We are out in the desert this week. It’s absolutely beautiful here. And I love the desert heat. I’m also incredibly fascinated by the windmills. They look and operate like moving pieces of art. I’m memorized by them. And they are a reminder that there are still so many things in this world that I know nothing about. I’m a pretty intelligent woman, if I do say so myself. But I have absolutely no idea how these things work. And I don’t care. I could watch them all day long. It makes me kind of happy that I can just enjoy them. I’m thankful that there are people who do understand them. The people who created them and operate them are brilliant in my opinion. But I wonder if they see it that way? Do they just see work and numbers? Or do they see the magnificence of them? I hope for them, the latter. Or at minimum, I hope that they know that there are people like me out here who stand in awe of their creation.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you realize you still have so much to learn!!!

Get this party started …

FALL. BREAK. I know I said this yesterday, but I am so excited! We have a lot of fun planned over the next 10 days. It’s going to be like a really LONG Thanksgiving extravaganza! And the best part is that I get to spend all of it with my family and friends. YAY!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you get the party started!!!

Like visiting a different world …

Yesterday we took our annual Fall trip to Oak Glen. It is ALWAYS a beautiful day and it’s ALWAYS so much fun! It’s nothing like where we live. AND our cell phones don’t work there either. I LOVE IT. We have uninterrupted family time together. YIPPIE! We enjoy long walks and apple and chestnut picking. There are pumpkins and hay bales, trees and NATURE! It’s such a great way to experience and appreciate the change of seasons, especially living in Southern California. THIS is one of my most favorite family traditions.

Well, I hope you all have a day where feel like you visited a different world!!!

Burping …

This is one of those TMI entries. I've been known to write a few. Heck, lets not forget that my first blog entry on WordPress was about an eye zit. Anyway, here goes.

I am not a big burp-er. I have always chalked it up to not being a soda drinker. And today, I am totally convinced of it.

Monday we visited Coca Cola World in Las Vegas. When we were there Libs wanted to do an international soda tasting. So we did and it was a lot of fun. Sorta. We were given 16 samples of soda from all over the world. Which is a pretty neat idea. Keep in mind, though, that I do not drink soda, so my experience was probably a little skewed. My take on the whole thing is that we might all live on the same small planet, but our tastes in soda preferences differs tremendously. And NOT in a good way. HA!

Anyway, my last run was before our soda tasting. So this morning I headed out for another run. Now, I have gagged a ton on my runs in the past. You just do when you push yourself like that. But today was a whole new ball of wax … um … gas. And I blame it on our quest to experience the world through soda consumption.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you burp and burp and burp and burp!!!
