I am experiencinga bit of disorientation here in southern California. Usually when I arrive here I get a nice break from the summer heat of Texas (unless I'm here at another time of year, and it's usually pleasant no matter the month). But I've been here since Thursday and this is the first day it hasn't been over 100, and we're pushing that today. Happily, Lyric's place is WELL air-conditioned (not all places in this part of the country have air conditioning!) and so we've stayed indoors quite a bit.
Lyric treated me to a very special birthday dinner last night at Houston's in Pasadena. It was perfect, and almost worth having a birthday for :-)
I'm for drilling on the continental shelf and in ANWR. And while we're at it, could we outlaw the word "pristine"?
I miss mountains.
Michelle Obama likes sleeveless dresses.
It's just seven weeks until our family vacation to Tennessee.
Gas out here costs $4.75.
I'm embarrassed to admit that I used to love Rod McKuen. Don't ask.
Most of my kids are turning even years this year. And they're all older than I want to believe.
I think I'm ready to try a Roomba.
It's easier to potty-train a child than to fill out a FAFSA. Keep 'em young is what I say.
You can't beat the smell of caramelizing onions.
Someone I love has just found out she's going to be a grandmother :-)
I'm listening to Don Quixote. Yes, seriously. And yes, unabridged. It never ceases to amaze me how a book written in the first years of the 1600's could remain so hilariously funny to modern ears. Now that says "classic."
I'm extending my stay in California by a couple of days to do some family-related things. In summer I can do that. Thankfully I had stocked the freezer with lots of meals so no one goes hungry while I'm gone. Not that I seriously think anyone who lives at my house would ever go hungry.
I will miss the Cambrons. However, anyone with the nerve to move to Colorado Springs...
That's all, folks!
