11:30 and for some reason, I'm not sleepy yet

We left Daddy's house this morning (not too early) to drive south to visit with our friends from California who have relocated.  They've been here a couple of years already, and they love it, and I'm really happy for them.  Their home is beautiful, and you can really see the work they've done to make it their own.  They managed to retire from the film industry, move across the country, and buy their first house ever.  We've missed them in the time they've been gone, and in the time we've been in North Carolina, and we'll miss them some more when we get back home to California.

But today was a pleasant day, marred only by my own self-inflicted "guilt" over letting the interior of the car receive a second God-provided cleansing in as many days.  You know that saying, "Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me."  I felt a total fool today.  I grew up in Florida!  I know how the rain comes and then goes!  You don't - you just don't - leave the windows open and then drive away in a different vehicle, not even for ice cream in the pretty-close "downtown" area of your location, and expect it to not rain.

So other than that little bit of silliness, we spent some great time in stuffing food into our faces, looking at pics of family on computers, admiring the handiwork around the house, and watching a coupla Netflix options.  (Grand Budapest Hotel and Monuments Men - enjoyed them both).

Everyone else has gone to bed, and I'll be heading that way soon enough, but I didn't want to leave y'all hangin'.  Daddy's got the cats under "control" back in his casa, and we're having a lovely visit here.  Tomorrow, swimming and more stuffing of faces!


  1. The daily afternoon ritual of thunderstorm cleansing is hard for anyone to remember. Stop beating yourself up. Let it go (a la "Frozen") and enjoy your time. Soon enough you'll be in your forever home, living your life and being who you're meant to be.

    1. Okay, so I should stop beating myself up because that's YOUR job, right? ;) Thank you, sis. Because I do live "in the now," by the time I get around to blogging, I'm really only recapping, and have recovered from any issues I may have had during the day.

      Actually, I was getting a little worried about YOU, because there were a coupla posts you DIDN'T comment on! I bet if people didn't know we were related, they would think we were related. I'm not beating myself up here, but I'm betting that tonight's post will be a little melancholy. Spoiler alert? We'll see.

  2. Don't worry. Be happy. :-) Day 8 of vertigo so it's difficult for me to focus. Sorry about that.

    1. I don't worry; I am happy. I'm sorry you're still dealing with your vertigo. That sux.

      While I am expecting tonight's post to be melancholy, I am not "worried" that it will be... just expecting. And I could be wrong! :)


I LOVE your feedback; give it to me, Baby. Uh-huh, uh-huh.
