Thank you IngaLill for the yummy breakfast!
No April showers hence few May flowers. We’ll take May showers.
All ten of us were at the Monday night potluck dinner in celebration of two birthdays – Happy Birthday Maxine and Happy Birthday Marsha.
AND it was the finale of Dancing with the Stars. We always watch Dancing with the Stars when it’s in season. We have strong opinions and laugh and point. It’s crazy fun.
Muriel along the Venice Beach boardwalk in the damp cool whipping wind. What I thought: oh no, the wind is going to blast sand on my new car. I’ll be interested to see when I stop considering ‘my new car’.
It was a good walk and we had an excellent dinner at an Italian restaurant I’d never been to on Lincoln, Centanni Trattoria.
YAY! But it’s 4:45p and already all over, with blue sunny skies and dry cement. Maybe we’ll get a little more overnight?
I’ve spent a minimum of 10 hours in the last few days trying to re-write my insurance and combine home owners/landlord/renters/auto with one company. I can Not believe how much trouble this is and it still isn’t done.
Also taking time, I’ve been seeing doctors and, whooo, I’m going to get my droopy eye fixed. It’s a real condition, not my imagination, and medicare will pay. Oh boy.
He’s been doing them every day for 7 weeks or so. Every day, one piece of wire. WOW. They are all gaspingly cool. These are just a few of my favorites.
You can see them all on instagram…darrylkanouse. I think you don’t need to sign-up to get into the account. I’ll let you come up with your own adjectives. I’m sure FABULOUS will be among them.
You can name them yourself too: Surfer Boy; Kissie Kissie; Ole; Hookah Smokin’; Helloooow; Swordsmen. There are also ballroom dancers and swing dancers that I looove, and MORE. ENJOY!
I’ve used this organization plan for a few trips now and it seems optimum for my things anyway.
From the top left: a bag for all the miscellaneous electronica, walking sandals (my flips were downstairs), the computer sleeve, a bathroom bag with all the fix-me-ups, liquids and gels (there’s a quart ziplock inside the stronger one).
Bottom row: four bags including 1) swimming and dress-up outfits including shoes (a bag that doesn’t get opened often), 2) shirts (x6 in layers), 3) pants (x4) and sleep wear, 4) undies.
Sling bag not shown: camera and purse.
You need to wear all the heavy things layered on the airplane adding significantly to your wardrobe, and then there is plenty of room left in a carry-on bag to tuck in an umbrella, more socks and a hat if it’s a cold weather trip, and a few other things, but not much more.
Once off the plane the suitcase can expand to carry everything so you don’t have to wear all the heavy things for every transfer, just for the plane.
