Well, I think I'm going to the Dodger game this afternoon. I live close by, right across the park, so I can walk to the stadium.

Then I'm grilling this evening. <<< that's more fun...

Sorting stuff out for a yard sale, not sure when we will have the yard sale. All the stuff is hubby's brother and mother's from when they died. Backbreaking work, not good for my back and spine, since I have a fused disc. If I don't help him, it doesn't get done.

I've been missing you, dear friends, but I have had so little time to use the computer. I've been spending alot of time with a dear friend who is having some scary health problems, after doctor visits yesterday and today, it turns out that she has "shingles" - not the best news, but the initial fear was inflammatory breast cancer. In between, I've been busy painting - I have an exciting new opportunity to sell my paintings in a much higher traffic venue (14 airports - seven here in Mexico and seven in the US, plus internet) and for more $$$. But I need to paint larger paintings (I'm working on one now) and get a few finished so we can get started. And it is now the most miserable time of year here - very warm and humid. A friend from Portland, OR, my hometown, is on her way down and will be here tomorrow, so I need to clean house tomorrow! She has rented a place and will stay for at least six months. I'm looking forward to seeing her and spending some time with her as well.

Katie, I am so happy to see how busy you are, and I'm really sorry about your kitty. We lost a dear old kitty friend a few weeks ago (15 years old) and we miss her so much. But it looks like the neighbor's cat is about to have kittens, so I suspect we'll have at least one new furbaby soon.

Sounds like everyone else is also staying busy - babe, I'm glad you're feeling better, but don't overdo it. I'll keep my eye on the board as often as I can and hope to have more time soon....
Saludos, Karen

A little late to post, but here goes.

After breakfast and the usual chores, I spent the rest of the daylight hours working on three customer jobs. Finished one, made good progress on the second one and made a dent in the third.

Midway during the afternoon my sister from Dallas called me and we spoke for about 30 minutes. Hadn't talked with her for a while so we had some catching up to do.

Just as I was finishing my customer work, my best friend (since 1954) called with a question on how to do some upholstery job she wanted to tackle on her own. Over the phone it was a bit challenging, but she's on her way.

At the moment, I'm waiting for the breading to set up on my green tomatoes for tonight's dinner. I know it's a little late, but I still haven't established a meal schedule since Buck's been gone.

I'll eat my dinner, spend some time on the computer and then head off to bed with my book. Hopefully I'll sleep tonight.
