One More Try

Here I go again. Trying my hand at a reentry into blogland. Life has just been so unbelievably crazy, hectic, busy...you get the picture. We thought we had some good news with The Papa but today we're waiting with baited breathe. The Papa has leukemia and the doctor and hospice thought he wouldn't live past the end of June. He has been doing really well the month of July and has been regaining energy (he has been bedfast for nearly 3 months). Now it looks like the leukemia might be rearing it's head again. What an awful journey this has been. I wouldn't wish this on anyone.
Yesterday it was an unbelievably HOT 112. We took off with the Prodigal Son and Cute Redhead and headed over to the central coast. We stopped in Paso Robles for some wine tasting, a yummy seafood lunch in Cambria, a visit to a craft show where we bought another birdhouse for around the pond and 3 hours of reading and relaxing on the beach. We had a spectacular show of pelicans diving for food (there was a huge flock of them) right in front of us. We came home happy but tired from the long drive. Today it was a mere 108 and should only be 106 tomorrow. Whoo hoo! I'll try to get a picture or two uploaded tomorrow from the desk top computer. But for now, I think I'll get ready for bed cause it's just too darned hot!

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog...I love finding bloggers who live close. Betty and I have got together quite a few times...she is a sweetheart.

It is sooo hot.....I can barely type this!

Life is always busy...never feel bad about "NOT" blogging..it is just a great outlet for most of us..when we have the time.
Life comes first....

There are so many wonderful and talented bloggers out there, and with me working in the home all day..this is a great oppurtunity to connect with the outside world.

Please stop by my blog when you can and I will do the same~try to stay cool :)
