I have people staying at my house for the next week which means I'm busy, busy, busy!
I also have a really bad migraine.
The migraine is tied to the very (!) bad pain flare up I'm experiencing. (My neck/shoulder/upper back muscles get all spasm-y-ish as a result of my injuries and cause migraines sometimes.) I attempted lifting something I shouldn't have over a week ago and my pain has been spiraling out of control ever since.
In any case, I'm not in great shape right now … and did I mention I have house guests? (Very bad timing for a pain flare up.)
We had a beautiful weekend here though.
Absolutely beautiful ….
I even got a little sunburned at the high school baseball game on Saturday. It was 85F (29.4C). I was way too hot in jeans and a long sleeved t-shirt. I'll be at the baseball fields a lot over the next several months. The spring baseball season has officially begun and there are five games this week alone.
Have I mentioned I'm the team photographer?
THAT should be good for my arm, don't ya think?
I just ordered a monopod and I'm hoping it helps. I don't think I'd be able to do a season's worth of games otherwise. (Baseball requires big, heavy, lenses.) It will make things much easier on my bum arm.
Of course, not all the local kids are hanging out at the baseball fields. You'll find a lot of them shopping here:
I thought you might also want to see one of my favorite little shopping centers. It's in Crystal Cove (Newport Beach).
There are a couple great restaurants, a lot of shops, a Starbucks, etc. located in this center – all conveniently overlooking the Pacific. There are days when I just like hanging out in the parking lot because the view is so nice.
When it comes right down to it though, I'd rather be ON the beach instead of just looking at it.
