My favorite show on netflix now is Madame Secretary.  Nice family, nice story , some drama.  I can handle this.

Sunday, July 30, 2017

I continue to watch one episode a day of Madame Secretary, my version of fake news.  It is better then the real news or the alternative news.

Saturday, July 29, 2017

I am slowly pulling out books that I have not read but intended to read and actually reading the first chapter to see if I should keep it or let it go.

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

I need to have the dead apricot tree taken down in the back yard.  I wish I understood why it died so suddenly. Nothing else seems to have died.

Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Only one nap today.  Maybe I have finally caught up with my sleep deprivation.

Monday, July 24, 2017

foggy cold day.  You would think we are heading into winter.  Never took off my sweatshirt all day.

Sunday, July 23, 2017

I am reading a book that I am mildly interested in.  I keep reading but am on the verge of just putting it back in the library. Maybe I will finish it tomorrow or will give it up.

Saturday, July 22, 2017

Everyday I read the morning tweets from the president and realize that the end is insight. what is he thinking?

Wednesday, July 19, 2017

Watered the pots on my deck.  Everything is dry.  The old orchid in the kitchen is about to bloom again.  I am tired and am past blooming.

I ate frozen broccoli cooked in a microwave for dinner tonight.  I feel a bit sick.

Saturday, July 1, 2017

Really, I had a list of things to do today and I didn't do any of them.Only left the house to walk to the mail box in the afternoon.  A lazy day unexpectedly.

Friday, June 30, 2017

I ordered some new outdoor chairs from amazon and they arrived in a huge cardboard  box that is sitting by my front door.  It seems daunting to open the box.  I don't now how long I will leave it there.  I have been know to leave unopened boxes around for months.

Thursday, June 29, 2017

Went to the Osio movie house to see Radio Dreams. I didn't really like it or understand what it was all about.

Tuesday, June 27, 2017

I went through my stack of mail this morning and pulled out the bills. Wrote the checks and took the envelops to the Post Office.  Now that is the way to pay bills.

Monday, June 26, 2017

I took a bag of books to a friend for his free library outside his fence.  He said thank you and maybe I will find something in the box.  You don't have conventional taste in books, Kathy

Sunday, June 25, 2017

Went to breakfast with the hill family this morning.  Rosine's in Monterey.  Crowded, noisy, good food, and my voice went out as I tried to keep up with the conversation. So I was quiet the rest of the day.

Saturday, June 24, 2017

I finished the first part of a writing project today.  Now I am at loose ends.

Friday, June 23, 2017

I decided to cure my sore knees with Apple cider vinegar but do you know how bad it tastes?  So I bought a jar of apple cider vinegar in pill form from Amazon. this morning I swallowed my first pill and now all day I am burping up the the nasty vinegar.  I give up, I will just live with sore knees.

Thursday, June 22, 2017

Went to see the movie "Dean" at the Osio this afternoon with two teenagers.  We were surprised at how good it was.  i want to see more of this kind of good movies.

Sunday, June 18, 2017

Spent the whole day at home today working on a writing project.  Write some, then eat and watch TV and then write some more.  Now the day is done and I am going to read for awhile before bedtime.

Saturday, June 17, 2017

The heat is coming according to the weather report.  We may miss the bullet because we live so close to the ocean.  Maybe.

Thursday, June 15, 2017

I took a spooful of Apple Cider vinegar because a friendsaid it would help. So bitter I can't do it. Maybe I will try the pills.

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Another day is gone, they come and go so quickly.  I stopped to smell the roses and listen to the news and read about Trumps tweets.  Another day.

Monday, June 12, 2017

Some days there is just nothing to say.  sun, rain, wind clouds and now sun again.  Snow in the mountains and Trump is still president.
