Happy Holidays!

photoThe holidays brings out love, joy and togetherness. I hope everyone is having the privilege of spending time with loved ones! I have been very overwhelmed with so many thoughts of what next year will bring and haven’t been focusing too much on the Xmas spirit. YES shame on me, I know! I just figure I have next year to make up for it.

I was pleasantly surprised when a generous friend of mine sent me roses out of the thoughtfulness of his heart. I guess people just don’t send flowers for apologies or special occasions any more which is a wonderful change. It definitely put a smile on my face and made me feel loved. To my special friend “thank you so very much, it means a lot to me!”

I do have a lot to be grateful for this time of year, my health, good friends, a great place to live to prepare for next years goals which will bring a new perspective on my life and the people around me. I look forward to next Christmas, it will be filled with more love, more joy and togetherness for sure! I wish you all a warm holiday season with all the hugs and kisses you all can endure!

Much love,

Thankful!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We should all be so thankful for the family and friends we have!

A dear friend of mine who is a sister to me who had a cancerous tumor a size of a golf ball removed from her neck at Scripps Mercy Hospital where this picture was taken. I never realized how trivial my problems are compared to what she has had to endure in the hospital these last two weeks. She wasn’t able to enjoy all the turkey festivities as I’m sure most of us did. She is better now through some therapy I’m sure she will be as good as new! I couldn’t imagine not having her in my life is what I’ve realized, I love you Trac! I am just happy to be able to be with her when I can and make sure she knows I am here for her always. Please count your blessings everyday, be grateful for your life and friends.

As I look through out this year there have been a lot of changes but change is good, it’s never going to stop but how we handle these changes say’s a lot about our character!  It also set’s a statue of how people see us as a person. I have been very blessed this year to find out what friendship means and learn that true friends are always there to help each other through thick and thin. A friend never turns there back on you NEVER and that is why you can call them a true FRIEND.

If you can count your true friends on one hand you are a lucky person!

“A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.”
Elbert Hubbard

Happy Labor Day!

What an amazing Labor Day weekend! The sun was shining and people were out and about having fun. What else could we ask for on a three-day weekend. I hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as you could!

If you had to work, at least you’re putting money in your pocket which is a good thing in this economy. Be proud of yourself.

So this is the last official weekend before school starts for a lot of you. I wouldn’t be to bummed, I don’t think the weather is going to change much and you can still try to enjoy it during the weekends.

I’m just happy we didn’t have the June gloom all summer like we did a couple of years ago, does anyone remember?

Let’s make the most of our free time, go out and appreciate mother nature. Fall is right around the corner!  Even though, I don’t think this fall or winter will be very cold this year but what do I know the weather is very unpredictable at times and I’m no Meteorologist.

I think we should just all be grateful that we have the splendid sunshine when we do, right!

I’m looking forward to Halloween, till my next Blog……

Much love,

Humid summer days!



Wow this has been a HOT few weeks! The Santa Ana’s have been bringing dry air to the coast which is making it so muggy and humid! I’m not complaining just not used to sweating without exercising! It does give me an excuse to try to stay cool with a dip at someone’s pool with a cold beer and or just hanging out in an air conditioning room. I would love to jump into the ocean which I’ve been meaning to do but keep putting off.

The bike rides are nice during the evenings even though it doesn’t seem to be that much cooler, at least you have the slight breeze blowing through your hair as you coast down the hill and occasional whisk of air on the boardwalk.

I’ve also been meaning to take a walk down to the ocean to swim my dogs which they would love. I tried last week taking them to dog beach in Ocean Beach but OMG bad idea on a SAT, I will never do that again! I forgot how crazy busy it get’s, seeing I never try to leave Pacific Beach on the weekends.

Well enjoy your weekend everyone and try to stay cool one way or another!

Much love

Loving Summer in San Diego!

Another gorgeous evening in Pacific Beach! How I enjoy the long days which leaves more time to take pleasure in the sun and spending more time outside than in.

The warmth and smell of summer makes not only ME but I think most people happier and willing to motivate. How about family BBQ’s., nice picnic with  loved ones, stroll on the beach, bike rides, surfing, paddle boarding, flying a kite, sailing and or just simply lounging in this great city we live in!

You can tell I love living here! I think ever since I’ve lived at the beach I’ve enjoyed my life so much more. I’m speaking for myself and no other.

For those who are San Diegans, continue to enjoy your liveliness in this blessed city. I’d rather not be any where else and for those who are here for a visit please admire everything it has to offer and more. The people are very friendly here.

Much love!

My favorite quotes on flowers

My BF saw these unusually striking set of flowers as we were taking a stroll down the boardwalk in PB.

I decided to post some of my favor quotes about flowers and make comments of my own.

Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into. ~Henry Beecher, Life Thoughts, 1858

‘In my eyes every individual person is some kind of a flower and some of us do have souls.”

Be like the flower, turn your faces to the sun – Kahlil Gibran

” I love the feeling of the sun on my face it definitely makes me shine.”

Flowers are love’s truest language ~Park Benjamin (1809-1864)

“I know for sure when flowers are given to me, it’s usually from someone who loves me.”

Let us open our leaves like a flower and be passive and receptive. –John Keats

“Only if we all could be so carefree.”

Happiness is to hold flowers in both hands. -Japanese Proverbs

“I sure do have a BIGGER smile on my face when I have enough flowers I have to hold with both hands than one, he he!”

I hope you’ve enjoyed me sharing these quotes and my comments!

Much love,

Unpredictable changes in life

This is a picture of how unpredictable the weather can be just as life. It brings unexpected change into our lives may it be bothersome or pleasant.

I’ve experienced some awful health problems and death in the closest people to me and conquer through the pain and anguish. I wish no one has to encounter such sadness but unfortunately it’ s life. It is a learning experience we all have to endure with time. Sadly we all deal with unexpected emotional circumstances differently.

I hope what ever it is that one has to face, my advice is be strong for the other person no matter what the situation is. NO ONE should ever give up until they have no choice! The strength of love, god and support usually prevails, believe me when I say this.

Be open with family, friends and or through therapist. It helps no one to keep such anguish and pain inside. Communication is the key and will eventually make life a little more bearable knowing that your loved one has recovered and or gone to a better place.

Be strong and god bless!

Much love!
