Back in Southern California

Posted by on Nov 14, 2014 in California, USA | 2 comments

I’m back in Southern California and everything is upside down, starting with my sleep schedule. I did okay yesterday surprising Edward and getting up at 4:30 am with him. Then I fell asleep on him at 6 pm. Now I’m up at 2 am (well, it would be noon in Namibia!)  It’s not really a problem since I have lots to attend to having been out of the country for 4 months, but still…I wouldn’t have minded sleeping until 4:30 again. Maybe I’ll bother the cat. Wait, smart cat; she’s busy sleeping too…   Please follow and like...

Since the coyote seemed at ease with humans, I kicked a bone that was on the lawn in his direction and he went over to investigate. I went back...

This year we went completely non-commercial. No wrapping, no bows, not even presents! Just bare feet and beautiful weather. (Sure it feels a little weird to have my very first non-snowy Christmas ever, but you know what? I can already tell you that snow is way overrated!) You might have guessed that I’m not in Idaho, and you’d be correct.  Edward and I moved to the Los Angeles area last week. He’s got an exciting new job that’s top secret until 02 January. And for me there’s no looking back (to Idaho). As a wonderful friend of mine pointed out “The move sounds like a typical chapter in your life!! Everything happening all of a sudden at once.” And that about sums it up! Despite the lack of snow, I did get into the holiday spirit and decorated my pink Christmas...
