I've made that Catalina trip many times and with that company - they're a great, careful company. The islands are wonderful out there... so sad! It really breaks my heart.

We built a queen size bed out of an IKEA hack. It has 12 drawers under it in our guest room. It's so fun being able to just spend a day on a project...not that it even took us a whole day! I'm trying to get ready for our Italian daughter to come and visit with her new husband!

We worked on our storage building roof yesterday, gardened and worked on reorganizing the house...and I'm sore again today! This is awesome.

Tomorrow we go down to the Santa Barbara area to see my sisters new baby dog! She has a Border/Poodle and now she's gotten a Border/mini poodle/mini poodle. So it will be as smart as her other dog, just miniature. I told her if it yaps I'm never visiting again - lol. She says she won't be yappy.

Hi guys!!! Glad to see you guys here and I hope everyone is having a good week so far!

We went to visit my mom on Saturday and she didn't look too good. Tired, thin, no appetite, just not great. It's weird, because when we talk on the phone she sounds just as chipper as ever. Then I ask her how she's feeling, and she says not very good. And dad confirms she's not doing great. I don't know how long this may go on, but I'm hopeful she can recover some strength and feel better soon. Ugh.

Lots going on here, work, clients, schools starting, car repairs, craft fairs.......life sure is busy!

Carol, I irrationally thought of you when I heard about that tragic boat fire near Catalina Island. Those poor people......I'm glad to hear from you and know you are good.

Have a great week everyone!!

September already! We had a great day at the beach on Sunday. The ocean felt great and RJ warmed up to playing with the water and sand quickly.

Carol, I'm sure that was a tough job. The good part of being retired is having the time to take care of stuff like that.

Wow! September! It took me a while to realize that it's Monday! Have I said how much I LOVE being retired? Haha!

We just returned from clearing out Tom's father's house to get it ready for sale. There's still so much to do! But, we have our Italian daughter coming on the 19th and don't even have a bed set up yet! It's a good thing that I'm retired because I think I'd be a little bitter over using so much PTO time to clean out their place. His family is not helping. One is trying to make sure that nothing is "removed" - lol...he's owned the house for over 50 years...I found cooking oil in the back of a cabinet that was best used by 1992...a whole gallon. Sigh. I've been working 12 to 14 hour days there and the last day we did a total push so more like 15 hours and yesterday I was so sore! I am going to get very strong from this! Today we're putting up the roof on our storage building and I'm taking a break while also cooking.

I just made a Masoor Dal "meatloaf" using ground chia seeds as a binder instead of eggs (since I'm allergic). With spinach, ground cauliflower and lots of spices.

I will not be getting in the pool because I have zero arm strength left - lol.
