Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take the step.

Seem to be feeling better.

More energy.

Have been taking more walks.

This morning walked to the Treasure Mall.

Even did better walking back uphill.

Sure hope this continues.

I am enjoying the renewed energy.

I am taking new “teas” and they seem to be making a difference.

Chest still congested, so not sure why I am feeling better.

Cross fingers that we can get this chest cleared.

Be a better you, for you.

Guess this blog never got published. Just found it.

So nice to have the power back.

Four days is a long time without power.

The power did go off again last night, but it was restored by morning.

Weather has been nice.

Have taken a couple of nice walks

Tonight went to Wednesday Tacos at Del Taco with Skipper and Cheri.

Topped it off with a softie cone.

The winds are expected to return for a couple of days.

Just taking it slow and easy.

It’s always better to get caught trying than to have never tried at all.

It’s always better to get caught trying than to have never tried at all.

Practically forgot that I have my own blog.

Have spent a good deal of this winter hibernating.

Need to start getting active again.

So much wind this week.

This morning was gorgeous and drove over to Lenwood and had In and Out Burger Fries Choc Shake.

Delicious!

Took a nice walk and enjoyed the morning sun.

Earlier – very early – I learned how to use my new D.B. Smith Contractor Sprayer and sprayed the weeds

with distilled white vinegar, salt and dish soap. The weather really needs to be warmer for this to

work, but I have been anxious to learn using the sprayer. It is really fun.

Hopefully, after this week, the weather will get hot enough to make this practical.

Saving money to get new tires, shocks and alignment for the van.

So expensive, but I want to be safe on the road.

Hello Dolly

Went over to the college and saw the live play Hello Dolly.

They did a really good job.

Lots of fun.

Not making any progress with me “teas”.

They are telling me that I must get an X-ray to make sure there is no blockage.

Not sure if I need a referral from my doctor.

It never gets any easier.

Don Rickles

Sadly, Don Rickles passed away today.

I was so fortunate to have seen his live show in a small casino in Oregon last year.

Absolutely Fabulous!

All of our Greats just keep leaving us.

Feeling sad.

We need laugh-out-loud Laughter today more than ever.

Guess it’s up to US ! ! ! L O L

Yes – We Are Up for the F U N ! !

Power Restored!

Thursday we had Really High Winds!

Telephone poles were falling.

The house two doors up had a pole fall on it and the house caught fire.

No one is currently living in the house.

We have had no power for four days.

Yesterday, Skipper, Cheri and I drove and stayed the night with Tony and Susan.

We all went out to dinner with Susan’s parents, Grace and Joon to a fabulous Korean BBQ restaurant.

One of the best meals I have ever eaten.

Mind blowing delicious.

We were notified by e-mail that our power was back on this afternoon.

We stopped and had dinner at Steak and Stein.

Had prime rib.

Another fabulous dinner.

It is so great to be back home and with power.

Very contented.

If you see someone without a smile, give them yours.

I have a visitor.

Not sure if it is a wasp, yellow jacket, bee.

Something that I definitely don’t want visiting me. lol

So I have extra diffuser going in living room with Peppermint Essential Oil.

Cut a large soda bottle and boiled sugar water and built a trap.

Need to make a spray to spray the door entrances.

Tried opening all the doors to encourage him to leave.

Have my bedroom door closed trying to keep him from coming in here.

They say don’t swat at them, as they will come after you.

This morning at 6:30am, Skipper is picking me up to go to Kaiser in Fontana for

Bone Density Test and

Eye Exam.

Fontana is 87 miles away.

Living in Barstow can be a little inconvenient.

In the Bay Area, Kaiser was one mile away.

We’d be in and out by 9:00am.

With traffic, now it takes about two hours each way.

My plan is to stay healthy and not have to do this often.

Good Plan!

Think about what could go right.

It has been pretty windy.

So, just enjoying the house and watching lots of YouTube videos and Netflix.

I am way too contented.

It’s a New Day! Live it. Love it. Learn from it.

Spring days are so beautiful right now.

Been out and about and just enjoying the nice weather.

Thinking about taking some of my work and projects out to work on them in the van.

Really enjoy being in the van.
