I went to the 5pm movie, Magic at Midnight, the latest Woody Allen movie.  Of course I like all of his movies and I liked this one even though deep in my heart I think it was a bit overdone.

Spent the afternoon with my 12 year old grand daughter. She wants to write a mystery story so we talked about why people kill each other.  Sort of sad actually even thought I love reading mystery stories.

I have known about global warming in my brain but this week in the warmth of Monterey I am beginning to feel it in my body.  It is too hot.

I am reading MEN EXPLAIN THINGS TO ME by Rebecca Solnit, one of my very favorite authors.  A collection of essays.  I love it.

The winds are upon us.  I didn't wake up for the earthquake.  It was 150 miles away.  But I am right here with the winds.

I have been moving my recliner chair around in my room trying to find a good spot where I can see outside the window.  I want to see the birds and the trees.  I am now on my second attempt to find the best place.

Katie age 12 and I listened to the pandora radio, classical hard rock, this late afternoon while she was going through a jar of pennies looking for hidden treasures.  She found several possibilities and will have her 8th grad friend check it out.

We are now in the typical summer, days of fog, a grey fug in the air.  I am still watching Orange is the New Black, second series.  I watch one episode a night and am getting close to the end.  I am glad that I am not in jail.

The fog never cleared today.  cool.  Spent time at the ocean looking for all these whales I see on facebook.  Didn't see any but did see a lot of bird and human life

Another August day, typical fog and sun.  And lots of tourists and cars.  Difficult to get around unless you go in the morning.  Went to Pacific Grove this morning to write with a friend.  All was well.

The check out clerk at Trader Joes teased me about paying with cash.  I said I always pay with cash, it is so much easier. I only have to pay one time.  He said I was only the second customer today that paid with cash.  Doesn't matter I still like using cash.
I have been on after school car pick up this week.  The whole trip takes two hours and I am tired at the end.  Two different schools, two tired teenagers.  Next week will be different.

I think every evening I am tired.Too early to go to bed.  I sit in my comfortable chair and think well maybe it is not too early after all.

My favorite magazine is the Library Journal.  I know it is a trade magazine for librarians but there are reviews of all the new books.  I page through the magazine looking at all the possible books I can read.

A dozen or so fishing boats on the day at dusk.  The spotlights glaring in the water waiting for the fish to bite.  Warm evening.  Wish I could sleep outside.

I have rediscovered the writings of Jessamyn West, particularly her non fiction writing.  I am thrilled.

This morning several of my neighbors are meeting to plan the labor day party on our street.  We have been having this party for years now.  It is a way to keep in touch with neighbors I only see when they drive by in their cars.

I took a long nap this afternoon and Now I am not sure that I will sleep tonight.

No rain today.  I didn't really expect any but there was a rumor.  I hear it rained a bit in the bay area but not here even though we need it more.  It just is not fair.

Foggy most of the day. Invited the 12 year old and the fourteen year old kids to hang out at my house in the afternoon while their parents were working.  I said they could watch me take a nap.  They laughed and laughed. And they watched me take a nap.

I have just started reading STRINGER by Anjan Sundaram. A reporters journey in the Congo.  Yes I am finding it interesting.

My sister spent the night.  We were going to watch one episode of Orange is the New Black.  But no, one was not enough, we watched a bunch last night and then this morning before she left.  Now I am looking at my TV and thinking I could watch more this afternoon.
