A friend who doesn't understand email very well keeps sending group emails to a group of friends with the wrong spelling of my email. this has infected all my friends address books, replacing the wright email address with the wrong one. Thus I have been missing very important information. I cannot fix it.
I keep losing strands of gray hair, one piece at a time. I read that we loose 70 strands of hair a day and that is true for me. They are on my clothes, in the rug, in the sink. My hair seems healthy but. I have more important things to worry about.
I sat next to a woman with a portable respirator for several hours this morning, listening to the machine breath in and out and hear her gag and choke. My body felt like it was at death's door. she seemed to do fine, I felt sick by the end of the time.
Went to Full Moon restaurant tonight with a friend hoping to have a quiet dinner. the center table had a loud boisterous family with lots of little kids. My friend and I got tired of shouting at each other and ended up just eating our good dinner in silence.
Took the 13 year old boy to his diving class at Carmel High. Lots of traffic. I kept wanting to shout, but don't you know this is a Monday. Where is everyone going. but of course it is also summer and cool here and people are tourists and escaping the heat inland.
This morning it was so cold I finally turned on the heater. I know it is hot in the rest of the country but here on the coast it is cold. In the afternoon the sun came out and I didn't need the heater any more.
The eleven year old and I went to poetry and breakfast at Earthbound farms this morning. It was foggy and cold but we persisted in sitting outside while we ate our yummy breakfast and then listened to three poets. the sun never came out.
I have been following the progress of a fire in Carmel Valley that is near Tassajara Zen Center. It is hot in the valley but cool here on the coast. we are all hoping the fire will be put out before it does any damage to the Zen Center.
The eleven year old girl and I picked some ripe apricots form the tree this afternoon, also tomatoes and beans. the garden is going. We had way too many apricots and I didn't get it together to give them away. Most are rotting on the ground.
My house is close to the border of summer fog and sun. It was sunny when I left and drove over the hill to Pacific
Grove into the thick cold fog. I went to a garden party for a friend's 70th birthday. Luckily I wore a warm jacket and did well.
I am sitting by the open back door and hearing my neighbor scream and pound at the neighborhood visiting cat. At first I thought she was screaming at a child but then I heard the cat. We have several cats in the neighborhood that are fearless and don't respect human fences and walls. What are they thinking.
I have been listening to the news of the plane crash at SF airport. A relative 's plane was diverted form the airport because of the crash. I am continually amazed at how fragile it all is and how it mostly works.
slow day. more heat but luckily no fires. Our community has been
cutting back all the high grasses along the roadsides. We are
vulnerable to fires, out of control fires. those who are most protected
have ugly cement in their yards, nothing to burn. Most of us won't
live that way but still I don't know.
