Breath of fresh air

It is kind of hard to convey the physical effects of the smoke in our air through a computer. But let me give you an idea: every day I wake up congested, my throat is scratchy and I am constantly clearing my throat. I lack energy and my thought processes are slowed down. But today, today I went down to the beach for a few hours. And I finally was able to clear my head of the smoke. There was a nice breeze coming off the ocean. So no smokey pictures today. I do have more to share, especially of yesterday's HUGE smoke plume. But let's pretend for just a few minutes that there is no fire going on. I spent yesterday at Golf N'Stuff in Ventura for Sadie's 10th birthday. I don't spend much time with kids let alone a gaggle of ten-year old girls but I was pleasantly surprised to have enjoyed my time. It's been a very long time since the last time I played miniature golf. I will let Chaun share the story of the day. I do want to share one photo with you though. It's a great example of what happens when you regularly shop with your best friend. :)
That's right, similar outfits. Very similar outfits. How funny that both of us thought of Preppy Cute as the theme of the day. And how funny that we were dressed appropriately for golfing!

And speaking of Chaun, I just love her. She always knows just the right thing to say or do when I am not feeling myself. It was a rough week and due to something that I chose (and had) to do, I have been feeling kinda lonely and slightly depressed. So, what could possibly make a girl feel better? Yarn of course! Ahhh, SeaSilk in Peridot. It's some of the most beautiful yarn I have ever seen. It's ideal for the Hanami. Thank you, thank you Chaun! I love you!

Take it from a golfer, you two would fit right in. For me, 90% of golf are the clothes! I so want to make Hanami, too. What do you think of a KAL? Maybe I should check Ravelry, now? It's such a beautiful pattern. And Chaun is your very super best friend to cheer you up like that.

You two are so cute! I'm so sorry you're dealing with things right now, but am so glad that you & Chaun have each other to lean on! Let's hear it for great friends!... And Sadie's birthday! Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The outfits are darling and I really didn't notice how similar until you mentioned it! Can't believe Sadie is 10... Glad you got relief from the smoke and received some great yarn from such a great friend. I checked out the Hanami pattern (beautiful) and can't wait to see what you and Chaun come up with.

First? You two are retarded. Though, given the option, that's exactly what I'd wear, maybe top it off with a hat a la Payne Stewart, my favourite golfer. I miss seeing him in tournaments.

And the Hanami pattern? Can I just say that's the only thing that's piqued my interest in a long time? I have all that HPY laceweight ... red/pink? Blues? Hmmm...

Ah, yes! We are darling, aren't we? Too bad it took a break-up for me to spoil you ;o)
