I ♥ San Diego! This is our backyard sunset every night...note the clouds from last week-
We had two days of glorious rain last weekend and we would welcome heaps more.
BUT- those temps above?
They warm not just my physical presence, but my psyche and soul as well.
It's a tad above normal for this time of year. That;s OK-I'll deal with it.
Last year at this time we were bemoaning our house sale fall-out fiasco, but by late November we had sold the house ( again!) and finally went to closing in December and set off on our much anticipated move to SoCal.
This year I get to have T-day with both kids and their significant others; we will be taking part in the Father Joe's Villages 5k run/walk early that morning, and then-football, too much food, and the beach!
We've toyed with purchasing a house but want to wait until I'm back in the teaching work force.
SoCal is Shagri-La to us, but housing prices are crazy here. Renting is fine for now( even if I do want to rip out the non-functional kitchen, lol)
We've got tickets to Wicked, The Nutcracker, Fleetwood Mac, Dame Edna's preview ( Aussie humor? Yes please!) and with free Tuesdays for residents at our Balboa museums, I get to see Rothko at the Gauguin to Warhol/Modern Art 20th Century showing for nada. Daughter and I will also go to some dance productions that are interesting/local ( not hubby's fave thing).
And yes, every week, the beach...
I'm pretty comfy with directions now( I live east of San Diego, LOL) and can get around on the bus/tram with the ease of a local born and raised here.
I'm volunteering with this group: Just in Time for Foster Youth
and they are so great-really making a difference in these kids' lives. I hope to help as much as I can.
Hoping your November is fabulous and then some. My biggest first-world issues this week are an older phone that ate tons of my recent photos (!!!) and sighing over the Republicans election wins.
Oh, and yeah-Boomer was a Shark for Halloween.
He loves to dress up, and left this on ALL DAY. He's a hoot.
