My mom - I took her to my home because of the 100 degree temperatures we have been having and her house was sooo hot. I have air conditioner at my home. She enjoys being outside and was admiring my yellow roses.
For my cousin's Al birthday - we went to Disneyland and the first ride he wanted to go on was Splash Mountain - of course we were sitting up front and when we down the big dip - Even though I hid behind him I still got soaked - my hair was wet, my clothes and everything underneath my clothes were wet. It felt good because it was so hot - but my hair is curly and I didn't bring anything to tame it :(
Near the Thunder Ride is a great BBQ place - they give you all the chicken, ribs, coleslaw and beans you can eat and drinks. The chicken and ribs were great and the coleslaw - I am not a big eater but my cousin is and we did a good job with the food - didn't want to waste it - after that we did more walking. Goofey was dressed up as a skeleton and I thought he looked cute.
I enjoy that Disneyland does a display of the Day of the Dead - very cool.
We went on Space Mountain and Tower of Terror - after those two rides which made my hair worse - I told my cousin I am definitely too old for these rides - yeeks - I felt so dizzy after.
My cousin Al will be 49 this September and he is in remission from his cancer for the last several years. He plays in a baseball league in the San Diego area for the age group of 45 and older. They made it to the playoffs a few Sundays ago but lost the game to be champions. He said they have another chance in October to become champions. In my book he already is. During his series of chemo he never gave up and he pressed on to handle the effects of his chemo. I was there to help him through it. He now works out every day and keeps himself in shape to play baseball. I am very proud of him.
He was very happy to have his two nephews come and cheer him on during the 2nd game.
Umm - as you can tell Kittie is a Dodger fan & she loves to sun by the sliding door.
Flowers from my sister for mother's day & a very nice candle from my daughter Shelley for Mother's Day.
Then there is Jona with her serious face.
Went on a quick camping trip this weekend - near Bishop - - it was a nice weekend - warm - very relaxing - did walking in the morning and afternoon and especially to go to the restroom was a really good walk.
Came home and was glad to see my flowers did well even though I hadn't watered them for two days.
Back patio area. The dirt in my yard is so difficult to work with - also I have issues with roots. When I was trying to plant my little flowers it was hard - but I did it and I think it looks pretty good. When I water - I need to make sure it goes to the roots because when I dig around the dirt - it is dry.
