I hope you had a nice summer solstice weekend.

I made a concerted effort *not* to pick up my camera (much) last weekend.
(My bum arm has been in a very angry state of mind. In fact, I think it might have popped off of my body again.)
Instead, I got a lot of one-armed chores and errands done.
I went out to dinner with some long-time, treasured, friends.
We followed-up dinner with an Angels baseball game … the Angels won.
The game was followed by a fireworks show.
The Angels put on a firework show after the game every Saturday night.
Because I’m old (???), I was tired by the time I got home at 11:15 Saturday night.
I’ve also been busy planning a return trip to Napa for October.
I thought I was planning way in advance.
But, it turns out Napa Valley is already almost completely booked for the months of September and October.
I really had to work in order to find a hotel room and get some dinner restaurant reservations.
(And sadly, I couldn’t even get into a few places I really wanted to.)
I guess I’ll know for the future –
Book Napa harvest season a year ahead?!
I’m super excited to have also booked a sunrise hot air balloon trip for my Napa trip.
I know it’s still months away, but I’m really excited about it anyway.
Isn’t it funny how planning a mini-vacation can lighten up your entire outlook?
It’s something to look forward to –
And who doesn’t need that?
