Last Hurrah

I ordered a new camera for our next vacation. I have a decent little camera except that the port for the USB cable has never worked well and now it’s almost impossible to doc it. Very frustrating when trying to get the pictures. My new camera should be here tomorrow so I will have plenty of time to play with and get used to how it works. it’s got a touchscreen so that will be nice. Unfortunately for you this means many many giant pictures while I play. At least you won’t be stuck with my cell phone pictures for all of the vacation. The one I ordered is just a nice little Nikon. It’s RED! 🙂


We are planning to go to the Winchester Mansion in San Jose.

there aren’t many pictures online so I’m guessing they’re pretty restrictive.

I have a mourning dove that nested in a hanging planter on my porch and now she has little babies in there. I would like to get pictures of that.

I had my first physical therapy appointment on Wednesday for my foot. Mostly they just poked and prodded and pushed and pulled and bent and straightened and measured. They were very nice and very funny. My next one is Friday. I know this sounds weird, but I’m having trouble fitting all of my doctors appointments into my schedule! I need to quit my job just so I can keep up with them. Today I finally called and scheduled my ENT appointment to follow up on my hearing loss, A YEAR LATE! Geesh. I didn’t let them schedule me in May. I just can’t even think about adding anything else to May. So, June. While I was typing this my dentist office called to remind me that I hadn’t rescheduled my cleaning that I had to cancel a couple of weeks ago.

I really need to find a dress to wear to my daughters wedding too! Oh, I have a doctors appointment the day before that. We bought my husband a suit last week and I picked out a tie for him. 


My daughter has explained to me that her “color” will be peridot green. Though, I don’t know what that means now since I know one dress will be navy blue.

Have you tried Mini Pops? It’s not popcorn, it’s sorghum that has been popped. It’s the funniest looking thing because it looks like popcorn except it’s about 1/5 the size! So far it seems to be something I can eat. Yay! I needed to find some snack food. Mostly I’ve been using it in place of crackers in soup.

Look what we got int he mail. 🙂 Vacation after this vacation. More like a long weekend really. I have to stop saying vacation when it’s really only adding on a day to a weekend. People think I take six or seven weeks off a year!

I bet this would have been pretty with my new camera instead of my cell phone. The sun was hitting the dew like a hundred prisms. It was really beautiful.


Wait..I’m going to add that picture again but really big! Maybe we’ll be able to see the colors.
