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

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.

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.

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.

Sunday, June 11, 2017

This morning I started unfriend many accounts on Facebook.  Time to be lean so the algorithm will bend toward what I want to see.  No more kittens and whales for me.

Saturday, June 10, 2017

I watched the first episode of Orange is the New Black tonight.  Lots of blood and screaming. I am determined to like it.  But it is hard.

A tiny bit of rain, just enough to wet the street. I paid my bills and realized I was late on two of them.  sigh  And Trump is still president.

A storm is brewing outside, wind clouds.  Maybe a bit of rain.  a break from the James Comey hearings  and commentary.  And Trump is still president.

My newest favorite book is TELL ME HOW IT ENDS by Valeria Luiselli.  She writes about her experiences and reflections with the influx of 
Central American child refugees to our country.  Really interesting.

A warm summer evening, so rare in cold Monterey.  And yet I sit in my dark living room looking at a screen.

Sunday, June 4, 2017

I stared watching House of Cards season 5 tonight.  Had to turn it off, too dark.  Maybe if I was watching with others we could have made good jokes about it.

Trump is still president.

Saturday, June 3, 2017

I have been reading the new Scott Turow book, Testimony.  As usual a page turner thriller. Now back to the real world.

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Another stack of books have arrived from the library.  Do I really think I will read all of them?  UMM I don't think it is possible.  I have to stop ordering so many books. It is driving me crazy.

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

Of course another foggy day.  the sun came out for about 10 minutes teasing us with warmth and the the fog closed in.  This didn't stop the crowd of tourists crowding the beaches and the town.  sigh

Finally a quiet day. Sun came out and warmed the house,  folded laundry,my least favorite chore.  Worked on a writing project, read more of a wonderful book.  Good day.  And yet Trump is still president.

I am working on a writing project that I can't quite complete. And it sits on my desk slowly being smothered by newer stuff that needs to be done.

The flowers are every where, pressing against my windows, filling the garden.  I can't seem to hide from them. orange,red,lavender, pink, everywhere.

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

I went to mid valley today to meet a friend for coffee.  The sun was out in Carmel Valley but in Monterey it was mostly foggy.  Picked up a bunch of new books form the library.  Now I have to decide which one to read tonight.

Monday, May 22, 2017

Trump is still president.  at least for today.  watched the Maddow show for awhile but it was all about the Manchester bombing and how no one knows anything yet.  Over and over again.

Stars tonight, there is going to be stars tonight.  The fog is gone for awhile.  Only two meetings today, life is getting easier and Trump may not be president for long now that we have a special prosecutor.  Such good news for the county.

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

First I got a letter asking if I would like to sell my house.  Then I received a postcard saying they wanted to buy my car, my wonderful Honda Element and now today I got a letter asking if I would like to plan my funeral.

the answer is no.

Monday, May 15, 2017

Trump is still president but his time in office is getting shorter as he falls apart.

foggy day and I went to two meetings and took one nap.  good enough for a foggy day.

Lots of tourists in town this weekend.  the quiet times are over.

Friday, May 12, 2017

I am now reading BEFORE THE FALL by Noah Hawley.  it is compelling in a frightening way. It is good to be scared by something other then Trump

Thursday, May 11, 2017

Every morning the New York Times is delivered to my door but it takes me another day until I read it. My habit is to read the paper a day late and then the new isn't so scary.  Trump is still president.

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Trump is still president bu there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  His end is coming.

Foggy day, took a long nap.

another cold and windy day and now the sun is setting.  the garden is wild with flowers.  They don't seem to mind the cold as much as I do.

Windy evening.  I talked today about my trip to DMV to get my drivers license renewed.  People laughed and I am not sure why.  It was not funny.
