Holiday Weekend

It’s a holiday weekend for those of us living in the United States.

What does that mean?

Well, my brain is half here – and very much, not so.

Yesterday, I spent the day in Los Angeles and Santa Monica.  The morning was beautiful, but clouds rolled in during the afternoon.

A view of Santa Monica beach.

By evening, it was actually raining in Orange County – the first rain we’ve had in months, and months, and months!

My trip up to the L.A. area was a combined photography/help-my-daughter-get-settled-in-her-new-apartment outing.

What else have I been doing over the long/holiday weekend?

Well, I said a teary good-bye to my oldest son who headed back to college yesterday.

(Yes, I’m down to ONE kid living in the house again!)

It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve said good-bye to my older kids, I always (always!) cry.

I’ve also been strangely obsessed with antique typewriters listed on eBay.

And no, that doesn’t mean I’ve been buying them – I’ve just been obsessing over them.

Why do antique typewriters, and cameras, appeal to me so much?

It’s a sickness ….

I’ll have more about this busy three-day weekend soon.

Right now, I hear The Neanderthal calling my name.

Can you believe he doesn’t even give me holidays off?

If he wasn’t helping me so much, I might really get irritated with him.

    Looks like a somewhat busy day at the beach considering it’s so cloudy… Must be the out of state visitors.

    I’m sorry, but you’re not allowed to get irritated with The Neanderthal. 😛 I can’t speak for the rest of your readers, of course, but I love the man.

    Other than that, all I can say is how the dickens did I end up working on a holiday??

    I’m so glad to hear it rained!

    My brothers live in Colorado and rain in southern California means snow for them 🙂
