My monthly round-up

As Vickie has reminded me how long I have been absent here, I am dropping in with my monthly round-up of FB status updates for your reading pleasure:

April 28: The dog on Steve Carrell's Office finale looks like Doglet...and I'm feeling so nostalgic overall about this.

April 29: Prince for the second time in 6 nights? Heck, yeah!

April 29: Mint Condition opens...

April 30: Gorgeous summer-like day in our little beach town. A great day for some yoga and a pedi. :-)

April 30: Loving home. Where it's warm enough to sit in the yard in my jammies with the breeze in the trees, candles burning, chiminea later.

April 30: Sounds like all the neighbors are out enjoying the warm evening with us...not noisy, just sounds like happiness. And we've got a fragrant fire. And my sweetie is strumming guitar. Kinda bliss.

April 30: Smudging the 'hood.

May 2: I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. –Martin Luther King, Jr.

May 2: I hear my MLK quote was not MLK. However, I still completely believe what it said. Just wish i could give attribution to the actual author.

May 4: At this time of night it's vewy vewy quiet I guess I have no choice but to go to sleep.

May 6: That's my Mommy! Happy Mother's Day! :-)

May 6: This week my sweetheart surprised me with gifts of music and art. I am an incredibly lucky woman. :-)

May 7: Time to get sassy! [I got my hair cut -- 12 inches plus to donate for wigs for people battling cancer -- done in honor of my friend who died last year. Hair is shorter than it has been since my early 20s and, after a brief freak-out, I kinda love it!]

May 7: On the way to City of Hope benefit at Universal Studios. :-) [This benefit was so much fun: we saw The Eagles play and then had the run of the park for free!]

May 8: Happy birthday to my sweet nephew, the fantastic superlative J!! I love you. :-)

May 9: Ouch ouch ouch. 4th day of leg, arm, head pains. I think it's a nerve in my back. :-(

May 13: Joshua Tree Music Fest, here I come!

May 14: Dr. Bronner's foam tub isn't just a bath, it's an amusement park ride! And I have a weekend pass. :-)

May 17: Celebrating The Friendaversary in The Bunker. [with our best "couple friends" while the rest of our house was having its floors redone]

May 18: Does anyone need a set of extra small dog booties (for paws about 2 1/2 X 2 1/2 inches)? Unused, but tried on so unreturnable. They're yours (free) if you want 'em!

May 21: Being optimistic...heading to giant costume sale. My rapture? Bargain costume shopping. :-)

May 23: Yoga tomorrow morning, 6:45 am.

May 24: Who LOVES Prince and wants to go with me on Sunday night to the last show of the Forum series? [PD2]

May 24: It's so obvious to me that Scotty is the star...why are they manipulating otherwise? Oh well, could be wrong.

May 25: Trying to be blase, but very excited to be going to American Idol finale today!

May 25: Rob Halford just walked by...have never seen so many studs on a leather outfit. And that's saying something.

May 25: All the Idols just walked by us. Lauren hugged the kids I'm I like her better. And Scotty is a sweetheart.

May 25: Four rows in front of Ryan right now on camera

May 25: James has on almost as many studs as Rob.

May 25: Loved Casey with Jack Black. Fun!

May 25: They wouldn't let me update anymore so that's why there was a break. Really fun show. Backstage now. :-)

May 25: I had the MOST fun at AI finale tonight and so happy for Scotty. :-)

May 25: My last AI finale thought: Simon Fuller smells amazing...even better than the previous best-smeller, Randy Jackson. ;-)

May 27: Seeing the new painting on the wall this morning gives me a big smile. [Went to art opening last night and bought an amazing painting!]

May 27: Available July 1: Our super-charming 1 BR, 1BA apartment at the beach! PM me for more info.

Well, that's it. Weight is going down SLOWLY. I have started to get up early to do two 6:45 am yoga classes during the week because I just enjoy yoga more than any other exercise and, therefore, I work harder at it. Got hormone results back yesterday and there are some problems -- plus glucose is too high (not pre-diabetic...yet). Have plans to work on all of it. Also started back to therapy last week and the new therapist is great: three excellent insights in the first 50 minutes! Yes, I'm excited for this!!

Hope everyone enjoys the long weekend -- I am still reading blogs, just not posting.
