Went to see the movie,THE HEAT with Melissa McCarthy.  I could hardly stop laughing.  My mood lightened.  The theater was filled for a 2:30 Sunday afternoon matinee.  Want to laugh? go see THE HEAT.

Still another hot day.  If the weather continues I will have to make some drastic changes in my house, l8ke get screen doors so we can keep the doors open at night to let the house cool off.  Not even a whisper of fog today.

hot, hot , hot and muggy too.  Sitting around waiting for my house to cool off and for me to cool off.  I want to complain but I am not sure it helps.  Maybe I will just go take a cool shower.

Went to the post office at noon today and there were a couple of youngish guys with big signs saying IMPEACH OBAMA.  Yuk, where did these guys come from.  They had huge pictures with a Hitler mustache.  Suddenly it wasn't such a beautiful day.

the weather has turned warm and lots of hummingbirds out today.  I had the last of the 4 writing classes and now it is over.  It was all wonderful and I am glad that it is over.

Had lunch in Santa Cruz with friends at Laila's.  We have met there several times and now I realize that it is Afghanistan food.  And the last two books I have read are about Afghanistan.  I love the food.

An unusual summer storm is blowing through town today. Wind, some drops of rain.  It has been a quiet day for me.  Tomorrow I will make lots of noise.

The kids came over with three little sage plants they wanted me to plant in my garden.  Their father likes to cook with sage and thought this would be a good place to plant them  So we did now we have to wait and see if they grow.

Had dinner in Carmel Valley this evening.  Beautiful clear evening not cold or foggy.  Always in the summer the question is it foggy or clear and lately it has been clear.

Listened to Beethoven 5th sympathy on the radio as I drove out to the valley.  I forgot how much I love Beethoven.

I told my friends that the skin on my face was raw from having a bandage on it for four weeks.  They looked closely and said no they couldn't see anything.  How is that my mirror says one thing and my friends say something else.

full moon tonight at dusk.  Just came home from a warm happy birthday dinner with family and friend.  I feel so satisfied.

Watched the new documentary show on HBO about Marilyn Monroe.  I found it very interesting and fresh.  I do recommend it.

Outside my bedroom window this morning were two small song birds huddled together on an oak branch.  It looked to me like parent and child.  The bigger bird flew off the the little one waited.  Finally the little one flew off.  I wonder what that was all about.

The sun came out today.  Yea.  Good morning of writing with a friend.  Cut out some new poison oak by the front door with a chopping instrument.  I was careful not to get it on me. I will see tomorrow whether I was successful..

foggy, dreary day today.  Took a walk in the cemetery this morning visiting all the dead people. 

Lots of birds on the grasses,

 Mostly empty of other people walking.  A good place to exercise my walking.

Thinking about Arizona today.  It must be very hot there now.  I remember visiting in the summers when I was young before air conditioners.  My family used swamp and wet burlap. I wonder if they are still used.

sometimes a sadness comes up in my body.  A visitor from some hidden source.  Today is one of those times. I wish I knew what it was.

Stopped by Whole foods today on my way home.  I needed milk and wanted some other food.  I walked the aisles and appealed to me so I only bought some soup and milk. 

I need to get better meals.

 I just don;t like to cook anymore.

I truly hate going to the sports center.  it is so loud and crowded.  So this morning I went to the park early in the morning and took a walk. 

So much better but will I get stronger.  Is the sports center the only way to be strong.

 I hope not.

Watched the movie Identity Thief last night on Television with an 11 year old and a 13 year old.  I thought it was rated PG 13 but after it was over, I saw it was R rated.  It was raunchy and funny.  I am not sure what the kids thought although they were laughing a lot.  I am not sure what the parents are going to say.

The red tail squirrels have started running across my skylight in the mornings. I hear their feet scrambling along as the red tail flies behind.  I believe they are creatures of habit and will continue on this new path until the end of time.

Two black crows have been sitting outside of my front door high in the pine tree.  I think they are watching me go in and out.  I wonder what I have done.

Went for my final appointment with the doctor today and my nose wound is healed.  No more bandages.  It feels strange to have my face be so naked.  4 weeks I have been wearing the bandage.

I sat with friends outside  at Pinos cafe by the custom house plaza.  A  new candy store has opened and they have a talking life size pirate outside the door.  when anyone walks by it yelly out, Hello Matey come listen to the wisdom of the pirate. 

We all wanted to smash him after awhile.

 Such an annoying sound. I tried to find where he was plugged in, but was unsuccessful.  Noise pollution, ugh.

Foggy, dreary day.  All I want to do is take a nap but it is not even noon yet.  More to do before I can justify a nap.

I wathed a long line of cormorants flying close to shore, wings flapping rapidly.  Then I saw another line of pelicans floating near the surface, gliding sometimes a solitary wave of the wings.  I think that these cormorants could learn how to fly more efficiently from the pelicans.
A baby wood pecker flew into the living room yesterday afternoon.  We tried to chase him out of the room but he kept hitting the clean windows.  Scott finally caught him and took him outside on the deck.  After resting for awhile he flew away.
