I finally got to the beach last Saturday. It was great. The weather was cool but still sunny. We walked the pier, the town, had a great fajita lunch and then ice cream. Of course! On the drive home I stopped at one of my fave Indie bookstore, The Book Jewel. I visited the bookstore cat, Paiges although she had just woken from a nap and wasn’t social. Ha. I bought a copy of Verity. I have heard so much buzz about that book. I have to see what all the fuss is about.
Although LA is headed for another mask mandate, everything is ramped up again as far as activities and calendar appointments. I will admit, I feel a little overwhelmed when I have more than a few things on the calendar these days. Since I have been sharing my car with my daughter over the summer I have to plan accordingly too because some days I am without a car so that limits when I can do things. I’ve been trying to schedule some coffee dates and the soonest I can schedule is September. That seems wrong.
On another note, with all the comings and goings of my kids, the garage is a war zone. I put a sun umbrella out there the other day and a huge wall of their crap came tumbling down on top of me. Needless to say I will be spending time out there this week getting rid of stuff. And you know what? All the Halloween stores have already put signage up so I am feeling the fall push to organize. I mean, I can’t even get to my fall decorations at this point.
I mentioned that I was in a cooking mood the other day. Well, nope, that didn’t happen. It just seemed like too much effort to go to the market and buy stuff. Easier to eat a yogurt bowl or a bowl of cereal.
I don’t have big plans for the rest of the week. I have to work on a writing project that I have and of course I will be reading more of Irving’s The Last Chairlift.
Are you hyped for fall already or do you wish things would slow down a little? I love fall but I feel like I missed summer so fall can hold off a bit.
