Summer reading

Things are calming down a little in my life so I picked up a few books on my summer reading list. Reading is a great way to escape from everything for a little bit. My list has 10 other books on it so as soon as I finish these books I will share some other books.
What is on your summer reading list?

Hot Hot Hot

Today is the first full day in Indiana. It's 110, well that's what the car says and the asphalt in the parking lot is beginning to melt in big spots. Might need to go get an ice cold beer at the bar next door to the hotel.
Keep safe and cool.

Great pastime

Tonight Jeff came down and was asking if I still had his thousands of baseball cards, which of course I did so he and Wyatt started going thru. So much fun listening to them as they look at the cards.

Growing up and moving Forward

Sometimes it feels like you're slipping away from me, growing up faster than I like.
You joyfully charge forward. Enamored by all that life offers. It is truly wonderful watching you! Yet, here I am watching you step ahead, as I follow behind.
It's all right, you run ahead. I'll take a moment or two to celebrate and cherish the road behind you.
I love you sweet boy.

Dinner out

Tonight I went out to dinner with my dear friend Sally. We were suppose to go to an amazing place in OB but they were having a farmers market and streets were blocked.
We decided to try this sushi place in Old Town called Harneys Sushi and it was amazing. We had roasted garlic edamame, Monkey brains, to start. I had the pink Pussycat drink and it was so yummy, it had champagne, watermelon, and cranberry. Then we are the Rollz Royce (pictured) then The Dank and an Orange Crush. So yummy you can never eat to much sushi.

Back to Children's Hospital

Today Wyatt had a follow up x-ray on his broken collar bone. We had great news the bone has a lot of new growth. He asked what he could do now and he can ride a bike but no skateboard, he can swim but no ocean. He wanted to know if he could throw at IRI. She said he needed to do some exercises so probably not. She had him do little circles bent over, he did them no problem. Circles got bigger and bigger until he was doing complete arm rotations with no problem. Then she made him do spider spider walks up the wall until his arm was way up the wall and his side was touching the wall as well. Again no problem. She said he was healing so well he could try throwing tubes at practice and see how it feels. He cannot lift anything heavier than 15 pounds and still has to be careful not to fall. His spirits were so lifted and he was sooo happy. I love seeing him happy again.

Ok, I love these Skinny Girl Margaritas. They are only 35 calories per serving. They are super yummy and very strong but oh so delicious. Of you are looking for a cool low cal beverage this summer try one, or two or three.

Happy 4th of July

Today was the annual 4th of July parade down my street. It is so much fun. We had a giant BBQ and lots of yummy food.
Tonight the marine layer was a little thick so it was not easy to see the fireworks but the neighbor renters brought their own fireworks and did them on their deck. It was fun, illegal here in California but they looked great.

My birthday

Today is my birthday! What a wonderful day, I was taken to breakfast, then went to the fair with Deidra and then went to El Agave in Old Town then came home and had this beautiful birthday cake. It is my very favorite kind. Moroccan cake . . . Chocolate cake. Chocolate mouse, a pistachio center and chocolate ganache outside covered with crushed up pistachios.
Last night I went out with my friends from the robotics team and had a great time. Tomorrow night I have plans with friends as well. It has/ will be a wonderful birthday weekend.
As I get older I realize who are true friends and what they really mean to us, we never need a lot of associates we only need a few true friends. I love all mine and truly blessed to call you all my friend.
