Yesterday was my birthday! To celebrate, we took a trip to the Central Coast which also happens to be where my son is. It’s a quick visit since he has to work too but it’s still nice to get away and see his new pad. He starts school soon so the timing is good.
Due to the Labor Day holiday it’s very crowded, as you can imagine and we are doing our best to social distance. The last time we were here was Father’s Day and it was packed then too. I’d like to come when it’s not packed.
We are going to grab some coffee and breakfast and then it’s back to the grind. Actually, youth group starts up again tonight on Zoom. We changed our meeting time to evenings so we shall see how it goes.
I am off on Monday for Labor Day and I added Tuesday as a vacation day to extend my birthday weekend. I have nothing planned.
But… my daughter DID pass her driving test so thank you for the good wishes. She will be practicing some more and applying for jobs this week.
The R.I.P Challenge is officially underway!! If you’d like to see what I plan to read check out my short list. I think the first book I will read for that is Heart-Shaped Box since it’s been on my list for years.
I am also still reading What Alice Forgot. It’s not pulling me in like her other books.
My husband got me into a car restoration show. I call it Rust Bros because that is what’s on the intro but I guess it’s really called Rust Valley Restorers on Netflix. It is a fascinating show with some really interesting people. Even if you are not into cars, which I am not, I can appreciate the hunt for the right part… or the sentimental restoration of a beloved car. It’s a really good show.

Let me know how you are doing. We are all in this together and we need to continue to support one another. It’s a trying time for sure.
