Mellow Yellow, Blue Monday and Blessings
Cherokee Indian Proverb
1. the weather permitted me to spend Thursday with my sister out in the world. We went to Kabuki in Bella Terra where we enjoyed a delicious lunch of Edamami, Miso Soup, California Roll, Spicy Albacore Roll, and our favorite sashimi ... Unagi.
2. After lunch we walked around the Bella Terra center ... stopped at Pinkberry's for a free sample of their new flavor and Peet's for coffee. Next we went to REI where I purchased a 'kewl' pair of Keen boots (we HAVE had LOTS of rain here in So Cal lately & the only footwear I own are sandals). My sister bought a couple of fleece jackets on sale. We visited a number of other places without making any purchases ... then stopped on the way home to pick up a pizza at Munchies to take home to her husband (who was feeling frustrated earlier in the day when we opted to forgo breakfast at the Harbor House for lunch at Kabuki ... he doesn't like sushi but usually joins us when we meet for breakfast).
3. My heart goes out to the continuing plight of the people in Haiti along with all those affected by snowstorms on the east coast and the mudslides here in Southern California ... hard to fathom the challenges of such devastation from 'natural' disaster & weather-related events. The small leak in my living room ceiling (under the front deck off my bedroom) seems minor in the scheme of things, though I will need to have roofers out to fix the problem ... hopefully sooner than later.
4. I had a wonderful 'catch up' phone call with my Taos Retreat writing buddy just now ... so it's considerably later than when I started this post and Molly's impatient for her walk now that the sun is shining. Methinks I'll let '4' be the magic number and close here ... after wishing you ALL a delightful day.
and for others participating in
