More Stuff

Winter is settling back into southern California...the rains came during the night and I can't get enough of that smell.

Though I could live without the wet cat smell.


I had school this morning...yep, you read that right.  School.  I'm taking a metalsmithing class at the community college and spent a few hours this morning learning all about riveting silver and copper, which will help in my jewelry making. 

It was actually quite riveting (hehe) and I can't wait to try it at home, but I need to buy myself a riveting hammer first.

So maybe next week.

Met my girlfriend for lunch and walked away feeling so blessed to have girlfriends...especially the kind of girlfriends that you can just talk about anything with no matter what and laugh and cry with.


Home with just enough time to switch the laundry and unload the dishwasher, then walk outside and be swept away in a chariot by a handsome prince.


So that guy that I like so much picked me up and off we drover to Huntington Beach, where if I didn't love my little house on my little street in my little neighborhood so much, is where I would want to live.  But we weren't there to admire the charm, we were there to watch our #35 play ball.

And then.

And then.

And then.

And then, he went down.

My #35 dove for a ball and went down.

And didn't pop right back up.

And when he did, he was limping.

Which, if you know his history and who he is and how he plays, then you know what a big deal that is.

I sat in the stands and watched and waited and he limped and played until the coach took him out a full 2 minutes later...which in basketball time is for-ever.

He has a goose egg on his leg (it's not his knee....whew) and he, of course, says it doesn't hurt...but it's iced and wrapped and elevated.  

And I just made him mad when he asked if he could go out and play football with the neighborhood boys...and I said NO.

Time for wine.

  1. Whew...glad Alex is ok. I got concerned but felt better that post-spill he asked if he could play football. Sigh.
