Went to the park in the late afternoon and walked around the perimeter, walking slowly, trying to increase my walking capacity.  Sat for awhile on a bench and watched kids, birds, parents, guys playing basketball.  Maybe I can go again tomorrow.

Lots of sun today.  Wrote with my friend for a couple of hours and then had an outdoor lunch with other friends.  what would I do without friends.

today I had a late breakfast at Cafe Trieste after spending time at the sports center.  Saw a transient woman with a backpack and a dog sorting through the trash can across the street.  she took out a piece of pastry from a white bag and continued walking and eating down town.  This breaks my heart.

I drove to Santa Cruz this morning.  Most of the cars were coming to Monterey for the Big Sur Marathon.  I had a pretty easy drive.  Lots of strawberry fields with ripe berries.  Coll breezes form the fog near the coast.  good day.

Went to the grocery store with a list in my head of what to buy.  I bought most everything but not paper napkins. I bought milk, coffee, tea, sponges, veggies, but not the napkins that I needed. Next time.

the 90 year old woman called and told me that she had run into a homeless woman in Salinas and gave her my name because she was sure I could help her.

No I can't help her.  she never called me.

Calm peaceful day.  the fog was hovering along the coast but hasn't ventured in yet. House feels too warm. Need to open the doors to let
 the cooler air in.

I am trying to decide on this beautiful morning whether I will go to the sports center this morning or just hang out in my nightgown at home.

The wind has not gone away.  The tiny apricots are beginning to grow on my new tree.  So heartening to see them.

I have found a new TV series that I like.  ORPHAN BLACK on BBC.  I have now seen three episodes and it is a keeper.  I watch it on on-demand so I can speed through the commercials.

 I hate commercials but do like the show..

The wind is up and the fog is coming in.  I took a long nap this afternoon so I may be up for awhile.

 He is a ghost deer.

I am just learning the new rules for mailing out fliers and newsletters. Now I have to put little closing dots on the edges.  Ugh, takes four times as long to do the mailing.  Maybe there is something I need to learn to do it faster.

I am reading Natalie Goldberg's new book THE TRUE SECRET OF WRITING and at first I didn't like it but now I am very excited about her ideas of writing.  I am glad that I stuck with it.

Sunday morning again.  Every week Sunday comes and with it he large New York Times.  Sometimes I am eager to read it and sometimes I put it aside for later, it is too much of a burden.  Today I am eager.

Went to the sports center this morning.  they still have not fixed their wifi so I couldn't listen to pandora music.

 I've talked to the folks at the front desk but they were not sure what I was talking about.

 I guess I will have to live with it.

Last night I watched a new highly reviewed BBC episode of a series called Orphan Black.  I liked the show but was dismayed by the ads. It is sponsored by a medicare diabetes program. 

Who do they think is watching this edgy fast paced sci/fi.

Old people like me?

Tuesday morning at Toro Park I saw that the  lawns were colored with bright debris from Easter picnics.   I imagined that place crowded with families and kids and realized that I had not been invited.  Next year I will just come without an invitation.

The woman was walking towards the crosswalk of the 6 lane road. she had on a highway workers reflective vest and sticking out of the vest was a pole with a triangular flag waving.  You couldn't miss her .  She was counting on being seen because she was so busy with her cell phone as she walked.
