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!
