Wind is blowing.  I hear sirens in the distance.  So far I still have electricity but I am prepared.

At the gas station this morning a man was walking around asking us if we could give him a couple of gallons of gas.  He was carrying a gas can.  I shook my head no but another woman said yes.  What was the right answer?

Tonight I watched an episode of Last Tango in Halifax.  I just want to reach into this fmaily and make it all right.  they are so tortured.

I became fluster and upset at a meeting today.  I argued with people because I thought they were wrong.  I didn't win, no one won, just another pointless argument.

On TV I watch the snow pile up on the streets and cars on the East coast.  I guess I don' have anything to complain about.  We have a little rain.  There is a big puddle in my parking area.  And I sat out in the sun this afternoon.

I am watching the Monterey city council meeting on TV tonight.  It goes so slowly, at least I can play on my computer when I am restless. I would not like to be an elected official.

watched another episode of Foyle's war on netflix tonight.  I watch one a week and at this rate I will never get through them all. It is slow TV at it's best.

We planned to sit outside at the cafe at the Crossroads but it was cold and the seats were wet so we went inside to the restaurant across the street and ordered coffee and talked for several hours.  I hope we were not a problem.

The weather is warming a bit.  Acacia trees are beginning to bloom.  But not me, I am still mired in the darkness.

Without any evidence at all I have become convinced that my mother's family immigrated from the same part of Northern Italy as Pope Francis's family.  So we must be cousins. I now think of him as cousin Frank.

Went to noontime sitting today after a two week break.  Yep everyone was there.  the sun was out.  We sat outside in the sun until the bell rang.

We had a few minutes of sunshine today.  I sat by the window in the sunlight.  Still kind of cold outside.  My face is still healing.  I am reading Patti Smith's "M Train".  I think I am going to like it.

My face is slowly healing from it's encounter with a mad dermatologist.  I have to think twice before I go again.

I was attacked by a skin doctor yesterday afternoon and now I have these frozen sore spots on my face.  I am never going back to this doctor.
