Two people in the house are blowing their noses and coughing.  I am madly washing my hands. I don't want to get sick with their East Coast colds..

The family went to see the Hunger Games.  I saw it before and found it just too sad.
I am caught by the writing of  Rachel Cusk.  the latest book I am reading is THE LAST SUPPER a memoir of a three month trip in Italy.  Maybe I should reconsider my resolve to not travel.

It's raining and I hear a drip from my bedroom.  Someplace there is a leak.  I need to find a bucket and keep the water off the floor.  Or maybe one of the faucets is dripping or maybe it is just my ears.
I have a string of colored lights hanging in my living room.  I keep them on day and night.  Keeping the dark and gloom outside the house.  Sometimes it actually works.

It was raining this morning so Deborah and I met at Cafe Stravagnza to write.  Usually we sit outside but today we got a window seat in an almost empty cafe.

I am getting emails everyday with pictures form Michael Reid who is traveling in India for 5 weeks.  Still it doesn't make me want to travel.

A lot of traffic on the way home tonight.  Luckily I was driving towards Monterey and the traffic was heading out bumper to bumper.  Where is everyone going.  Have I missed some announcement?

I keep thinking of Donald Trump.  I had first thought he was entertaining and now I am worried.  He words are so dangerous.

I didn't listen to the President tonight.  I knew what he was going to say and I just didn't want to hear it.

My favorite place to write on Saturday mornings is McDonald's,  Yes I am surprised also that I like it there.

Today when I picked up the kids after their soccer practice I gave them each a small bag of mixed nuts.  They immediately ate them and then were civil to each other all the way home.  Finally I understand how hungry they are after school.

I did a bunch of nothings today.  I wish I could make it into a story but the tire store, Trader Joes, The Cherry Center just doesn't do it.  Tomorrow will be a better story.
