Monday Monday Monday

What can I say it's Monday again, well this Monday is over and on to Tuesday. One thing I've noticed about myself is how I don't ever know the date or time, ever....

I always know what day it is, actually I work hard to know what day it is....not that I agree with the calendar what day it is ... some days feel more like a Thursday than a Wednesday, so I check the calendar and dang I'm wrong, it really is a Wednesday. Recently, several friends have left me voice messages or texts and I haven't been able get back to them. I used to call when I was in my Mini on my daily commute, but traffic and the foot traffic on the surface streets has gotten busy and I need to completely focus on the drive. My office in the first floor of a parking structure so my cell reception is so bad...thus I don't call anyone. I'm a night person and most friends are sleeping when I finaly sit down with some time to chat... thus I don't call anyone....most of my family lives in different time zone...two hours later! thus I don't call anyone....BUT today I said it's only Monday so I have all week to connect with these friends....I didn't call them back today.... lol ... I ran out of time.
On to Tuesday and I know it's Tuesday...it is, right?

Look at what I got today

I have been waiting for this piece of art from Gabi. She painted in her art class at school. She brought it over today and now I need to find a nice place to hang it.

Trip Number 2

We headed to the beach and you can see it was a nice cloudy day. Warm enough just not sunny. We found out you can't just take dogs to any ole beach. We found out there are rules about dogs and beaches.... we we're able to walk the beach or the paved walkway with the dogs. We actually had to go back to the nearest street to walk to Tower 5 area.... a dog beach

Here we are at Tower 5 and not that many dogs and our dogs especially puppy Maximus haven't been to many dog parks let alone a dog beach. We were alittle anxious but as one dog owner said to us "let them go and they'll stick around and have a blast" and he was so right.

As you can see into the water they went. Winston loved the water and he swam and swam and swam. Maximus followed Winston everywhere.

As we were walking from the beach Winston was so worn out he took any opportunity to lay down and rest...lol

After the beach we drove to the Cabrillo National Monument...it closed early so we didn't get much time there and no dogs allowed! ugh

There is a National Cemetery near the park so we stopped to take a moment in honor the 4th of July.

On our walk we saw some incredible flowers...I have no idea what this is but boy was it beautiful and unusual....

Morning Glories!!! How perfect.

We took the dogs to lunch and we were able to find one that allowed dogs. Maximus was so well behaved.

I've been waiting to post this...
My niece, Brenda graduated from Vet school and I made this piece for her. She got it and I got a nice thank you card from her. She loved it and I loved making it. I was able to use my new found skills.
