Willie and Scarletta

Scarletta arrived last week from Australia. She felt right at home when she met Willie. They are best buddies now! I think I'm in for a lot of trouble, those two will be plotting some horribly fun plans, I'm just sure of it!

Shawn and I had a wonderful time at Newport Beach 2 weeks ago. I wish I could have stayed there forever. It was so very peaceful and relaxing. I hope one day to live at the beach. I walked every day! Shocking! I know!!! Once back home, I'm plopped on the couch and that's about it.

Tomorrow, Cathie and I will be heading over for lunch with Mom and Dad. If Mom's feeling up to it she wants to go to Scappoose for lunch and then shopping at the Grocery Outlet. It's been over a months since she's been there and she wants to see what's new. I want to see if they got the really good cheese back in! Yummy!

Carston and Nick went off to visit with a friend, Shawn is still at work and I'm getting some "quiet time". I need to sign off the computer and get to work on my journal. My Most Perfect Sister and Bestest Friend, Shelley, and I are doing a journal exchange. It's been so much fun and I'm running late this round. So, off to play! Double Yippie!

Oh! A week away at Newport Beach was just not long enough! Believe it or not, I walked every day! Nye Beach is a few blocks away from the hotel where we were staying so I was able to wander there to the shops, places to enjoy a leisurely lunch, and look through some art galleries. Some day, I want to have a small home at the beach where I can be at peace and just enjoy the salt air. I felt so much better there. More energy, more positive attitude, more of everything! Even when it was raining I could sit at the little table, look out the window to the ocean, work on some projects and just relax. I didn't want to return home!

Other than that, things are good. Dealing with some slight headaches, due to stress. Stress of living in a pig sty! Not really, just the stress of not being able to find the items I want to use when I want to use them! So, I'm off to play a game instead of cleaning up around the house or working on a doll that needs to be finished and then sent off to Australia.

Big Squishy Hugs!
