I didn’t intend to go missing for so long, but with a holiday weekend ….!
It’s burning-up hot here which is pretty typical for September.
I spent a couple of last weekend’s days in L.A.
I stayed at The Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica because I’ve become addicted to that place.

They always roll out the red carpet for me and give me one of their best view rooms.
I squeezed in some fun time along the way – which was very needed.
My daughter and I had dinner at Sugarfish.
(Really great sushi!)
I also did a little shopping on Abbot Kinney in Venice.
Abbot Kinney — looking very Venice Beach-ish!
I walked from one end of Santa Monica all the way to Venice just for the hell of it one day.
(It was about four and a half miles.)
I took photos.
My arm popped off me one day and back into place the next day.
(Neither one felt very good!)
I had a great lunch at Joan’s on Third.
I even had a chance to stop into an art store and explore for awhile.
(I used amazing financial restraint while I was there!)
Most importantly, it was just nice to have a change of scenery for a couple days.
Isn’t it amazing how much better life can seem with just an occasional change of scenery?
I feel refreshed!
