I have been in my own head-trip of late. Thinking about life, stuff and everything else. I've been thinking how I don't like people anymore. Seems everybody just jumps at the chance to argue and fight. I really am a peace lover. Drama everywhere you look and even where you don't. Not just on social media, but standing in the grocery lines, (that's why I prefer self-check) driving - Everyone has their opinion and yours is just wrong/racist/bigoted/sexist/misogynist/homophobic/ignorant/anti-this/anti-that. I'm 64 years old and while I don't think 64 is THAT old I do not want to spend these years fighting and having to defend my opinions.

So I garden or swim.

We are planning a trip to Alabama this summer to visit my brother and his large family and I'm excited to get out of California for a week. I'm also trying to arrange a dog-sitter to visit Laydee during the middle of the day - let her out to pee and to toss around the ball a few times before my step-daughter gets off work. She will be house-sitting.

I ran into a little delay in scattering Michael's ashes- needed his death certificate (I misplaced mine) and had to get that. Just received it from LA and next week I will continue getting it finally settled.

I'm thinking I would love to go camping one weekend. Just get away and spend time in nature - away from people, the news, social media!

I hope this post finds you all happy and well and enjoying life.

Natural Disasters

As I prepare to scatter my son's ashes over Mt Shasta, a newspaper article I read yesterday said, that Mt Shasta was one out of 3 volcanoes that are considered HIGH PRIORITY; which includes Mt.Mount Kilauea, and Mount Shasta. According to the USGS, the chances of Lassen erupting are even higher than the chances of the Bay Area experiencing a major earthquake.

I can see both Mt Shasta and Lassen from my house.

I still would rather live here, than hurricane or tornado country.

Not afraid of earthquakes or Volcanic eruptions. With an eruption, I am sure we would have ample time to evacuate. Earthquakes are another story. Frankly, I like my natural disasters to be spontaneous.

I have a hard time packing for vacation; let alone packing to evacuate my home. Oi Vey, the traffic trying to get out. Nope, I think better on my feet and in the moment.

I do feel awful for those in Hawaii. My friend Cindy, was just there last summer, on a cruise around the Hawaiian Islands. At one point, the ship stopped so they could see Mt. Kilauea at night.

Happy Birthday Dad / Happy Anniversary to Mom and Dad

Yesterday was my dad's birthday. He would have been 86. He's been gone now 11 years. He died way too young.

It also was my parent's wedding anniversary - married in 1953. A good way for your husband to remember the anniversary. Ha, Mom was smart!

I'm just as smart. My husband remembers the month (February) but sometimes thinks it's Valentines Day (14) It's the 16th. So we programmed our security pad, by using our anniversary and year.

Now he should never forget again.
